The importance of vitamin B6 for healthy hair and our genetics

Did you know that vitamin B6 levels depend on your genes?

Why should you remember about vitamin B6 in your diet.

Low temperature, wind, and dry air inside warm rooms cause the hair to be dry, fragile at the ends, and greasy at the head’s base. So, how should we take care of its good condition? The secret to healthy and beautiful hair is inherently connected to providing the body with appropriate mineral components.

Vitamin B6 prevents excessive hair loss, protects and enhances its bulbs and it’s indispensable for hair growth.

Deficiency of vitamin B6 may result in an increased vulnerability to inflammatory conditions and lead to the development of seborrheic dermatitis.

What dosage of vitamin B6 should you use?

The recommended daily dosage of vitamin B6 for an adult is roughly 2 mg per day, but it depends of course on your genetics and levels of bioavailable vitamin B6 in the blood.

It’s difficult to overdose on vitamin B6, but before taking higher doses than recommended, we advise to check your genetics and consult with a specialist if needed.

How to supplement your diet with vitamin B6?

Consume foods containing vitamin B6: wheat germ and wheat bran, salmon, dry soybeans, red lentil seeds and white beans, sunflower and sesame seeds, millet and buckwheat, walnuts and hazelnuts, liver, dry meats and poultry meats, trout, mackerel, meat from turkey and chicken breast.

Choose products that contain zinc and magnesium, as they improve the absorption of vitamin B6. Sources of zinc are cheese, eggs, wholegrain bread, and sources of magnesium: pumpkin seeds, wheat bran, cocoa, buckwheat.

And remember, if you smoke cigarettes, the deficiency of vitamin B6 may intensify hair loss. This also applies to passive smokers.

How to check whether we have a proper or decreased level of vitamin B6 in the blood?

Everything depends on our genotype and activity of the ALP (Alkaline phosphatase) enzyme in your body. Before you decide to change your diet, we recommend doing a simple DNA saliva test to find out what genotype are you.
