We know that the most natural foods supplement the body with vitamins, minerals, and proteins. Stuff the plate with fruits, greens, vegetables, seeds, and legumes.


Hair is composed of keratin, a protein with a high sulfur content. Chemically, about 80% of hair consists of keratin (which gives strength and resistance to hair fibers).

There are 20 types of amino acids (fundamental units of all proteins), and 16 of them make up hair strands.

Foods with amino acids should be consumed: cysteine, methionine, arginine, cystine, tyrosine, and serine.

It is believed that with an increase in the number of amino acids, the body will produce the optimal amount of keratin, promoting hair growth.

Therefore, foods to strengthen hair are mainly those rich in proteins because they are composed of amino acids, such as keratin, which protect and strengthen hair strands, preventing and treating hair loss.
