Healthy eyelashes begin with a healthy diet. Consuming healthy meals and maintaining proper levels of nutrition allows the body to operate efficiently. When this happens, eyelash growth and hair growth in general may occur more easily. Here are a few simple nutrition tips you can use to promote healthy eyelashes.Eizeh\
#1 – Avoid severe calorie restriction. Calorie restriction can contribute to thinning of eyelashes. When we cut calories too low our body is not able to receive the vital nutrients needed to thrive. I recommend that you consume 3 to 5 balanced meals per day. This includes a protein source(see tip #2 for a list of protein), complex carbohydrates (ie: whole wheat pasta and oatmeal) and 16oz of water (or more). Most often we are restricting calories for weight reduction, yet if we focus on lean protein and complex carbohydrates we will make significant progress in reducing our weight.
#2 – Include a protein source with each meal. Protein deficiency can also contribute to the thinning of eyelashes. Protein provides the nutrients our bodies need to build and repair our tissues including key amino acids for increased brain function. Protein is an important building block for hair, bones, muscles, cartilage, skin and blood. Sources of protein include eggs, chicken, fish, turkey, soy, red meat, cheese, milk and whey protein powders.
#3 – Supplement your diet. Certain vitamins and minerals are needed for lashes to grow.
The most important ones are:
• Vitamin B6
• Folic Acid
• Vitamin A
Taking a daily multivitamin/mineral will help.
