Niacin Improves Circulation to Scalp and Promotes Healthy Hair

07-08-2010 - Read More Hair Blogs

Niacin, also known as Vitamin-B3 is effective in stimulating hair growth. Niacin improves circulation to the scalp and promotes healthy hair. Lack of circulation to the scalp is thought to be a major contributor to hair loss and fine, thin hair. If enough blood is permitted to circulate to the scalp, hair follicles can better fight off the DHT that contributes to hair loss.

Niacin deficiency is known for causing a disease called Pellegra. Symptoms of Pellegra are indigestion, fatigue, and skin problems. If Pellegra is untreated it will progress to vomiting, nausea, diarrhea, dementia, and dermatitis. It may also result in insomia, headaches, and depression.

Niacin has been known to cause flushing when used in high doses. Flushing produces, redness, warmth and itching on the skin. Because the dosage of Niacin in Helix HX hair growth supplements is not over 100 mg, the average person is not likely to experience it. Also, it is a water soluble vitamin, so your body disposes of the excess and uses what it needs. Niacin is absolutely needed to produce long beautiful hair! Niacin can be found naturally in wheat germ, fish, poultry, liver, eggs, nuts, kidney, and meats. A healthy diet can contribute to proper Niacin levels. Helix Hair adds Niacin to their plan, because it is so essential to hair growth.
