Vitamin deficiency can have a huge impact on hair loss. If your body is lacking certain vitamins, minerals and anti-oxidants then it can reduce your hair growth or cause the hair follicles to cease production of hair entirely, causing hair thinning and baldness.
Increasing your vitamin intake is often advised for a range of health benefits, including increasing hair growth and improving the health of your hair follicles and hair strands. However, the body often only absorbs on average 10% of the vitamins and minerals many people take in the form of supplements. While vitamin supplements are increasingly popular, research suggests that our bodies actually struggle to absorb the optimum vitamins and minerals from supplements alone.
What is vitamin infusion
Often, the best way for your body to regularly absorb the vitamins and minerals needed for health hair growth is through a balanced and health diet, rich in high vitamin foods. However, if you are looking for a vitamin boost to aid hair growth then a vitamin infusion could be the solution to your hair worries.
Vitamin infusions are alternative treatments for hair loss and they involved a cocktail of vitamins, minerals and anti-oxidants being intravenously put into your body through an IV drip. This allows the vitamins to be inserted straight into your blood stream meaning that 100% of the vitamin rich cocktail is absorbed by your body, allowing you to reap the maximum benefits from the treatment.
The specific vitamins included in these infusions can often be tailored to suit your specific needs with the vitamins and minerals you want the benefits of being included as a priority. If you are looking at vitamin infusion as a specific hair growth and hair health aid, then the most common vitamins and minerals included in these treatments are Vitamin B, Vitamin C, zinc, iron and anti-oxidants which are all used to strengthen hair and encourage follicles to grow new, healthy hair.
Do vitamin infusions work?
As the vitamins and minerals are injected directly into the blood stream, many patients report almost immediate benefits from vitamin infusions. As the body absorbs and benefits from 100% of the vitamin rich solution, patients leave following the treatment feeling, refreshed, invigorated and energised.
Long-term benefits of vitamin infusion therapy include improvement in a range of conditions which can be exacerbated by vitamin deficiency. Patients report increased hair growth, improved skin health, increased energy, improvement in mood and sleeping patterns.
