So I have been drinking my Shakeology faithfully now for a little more than 2 weeks, if my math is correct. I posted in my review that I felt like I had more energy since starting to drink it. Which remains true still today. Also I am now “regular” which has been a problem for me in the past, but I won’t elaborate on that. I am a 32-year-old guy that stays pretty active either with my 2 daughters or playing softball year round. I was adopted as a baby so I do not know my genetic history. As I am aging little things come up and I obviously can’t go to my family tree to see if it is hereditary. So like I said health issues have come up and doctors ask about my family history and I simply tell them that I have none. Anyways what I’m getting at is I have noticed that every time I wash my hair that more and more is falling out. I just looked past it as well maybe I’m one of those guys that is supposed to be bald or balding before 40. Mentioning it to friends that my hair was falling out as a reason not to cut it, got one of them to suggest that I might not be getting the proper vitamins and minerals for healthy hair. I was like “whatever” what do you know about it. Running out of ideas I decided to check into it on the internet and found some interesting things. Specific vitamins are needed for healthy hair, not to mention nails, teeth and skin. Now I am not a complete moron, I know vitamins are necessary, I was just thinking the vitamins I was eating in my diet would be sufficent…WRONG! I wasn’t getting enough or even all the vitamins I needed from my diet alone. After a little research I found that these vitamins are needed for healthy hair:
The following is a list of vitamins for healthy hair that you must include in your daily diet.
Vitamin E helps increase the circulation in your scalp.
You can take this vitamin either by taking a supplement or you can consume it naturally by eating green and leafy vegetables. You should also eat soybean, nuts, and seeds.
Vitamin C, which also boosts immunity levels, is an effective healthy hair vitamin. You can, of course take a supplement but you can also eat citrus fruits which are very high in Vitamin C. These fruits include oranges, sweet limes, lemons, tomatoes, pineapples, and potatoes. Vitamin A is perhaps the one of the most important vitamins for healthy hair because it is essential in the production of scalp serum. Vitamin A can be found in vegetables like spinach, which is also a good source of natural iron. You can also find it in foods like apples, peaches, cheese, meat, and dairy products. You should also ensure that you consume an adequate quantity of zinc because these work in conjunction to make your hair strong. Foods that contain zinc include mushrooms, whole grains, and meat. Vitamin B3, also known as Niacin, is found in fish, meat, turkey, and brewer’s yeast. This vitamin is very beneficial for circulation in the scalp. Vitamin B6 plays a pivotal role in the production of melanin and is responsible for giving your hair its color. You will find this vitamin in animal organs, egg yolks, and vegetables. Vitamin B12 prevents hair loss is most commonly found in white meats like chicken and fish.
Since I was already drinking Shakelogy I asked myself if these vitamins are in Shakeology, answer a resounding YES! All but 1 of these vitamins is found in Shakeology. Here are the daily values Vitamin E = 50% Vitamin C = 300% Vitamin A = 100% Vitamin B3 = 25% Vitamin B6 = 100% and Vitamin B12 = 100% . So to continue my story, I washed my hair tonight as usual and was amazed that after applying shampoo and scrubbing that my hands were not full of fallen out hair, I though to myself huh! So I continued to rinse and use a conditioner and sure enough, no hair loss. Incredible, after losing a lot of hair for months now (I’m actually surprised it isn’t really noticeable) that now it seems to have stopped completely. And I attribute it to drinking Shakeology. I am a Beachbody Coach, but I am in no way told to boost their products, if I don’t like something I will tell you, and am not writing this to blow smoke up your butt, however to show that Shakeology has been changing my life in as little over two weeks. Oh, did I mention that I have lost 3.5 pounds, and that’s without working out, as I am in between workouts. I’m waiting for the arrival if Insanity.
