I can vividly remember my mom reminding me to take my Flintstones Chewable vitamins every morning. I think we all grew up hearing our parents talk about the importance of vitamins, but what do they really do? Vitamins and minerals boost the immune system, support normal growth and development, and help all cells and organs do their jobs; your follicles among them. Just like every cell in the body, hair follicles are alive and need support of vitamins to keep them healthy.
B vitamins, in particular are essential for creating the structure of hair, providing nutrition for hair follicles, reducing stress, preventing toxicity and providing essential oxygen to cells. B vitamins are commonly recognized as a group and often work in synergy in the body, but each of the B vitamins performs a unique and important function. This vitamin group includes: B1, B2, B3 (niacin), B5, B6, B7 (biotin), B9, and B12.
