The key to healthy, thick, beautiful hair is an ample flow of blood and nutrients to the hair follicles. Clogging the digestive tract and fine capillaries by ingesting mucus-causing foods is a common cause of poor nutrient delivery to the hair follicles. Grey hair is often caused by nutritional deficiencies, and can be reversed naturally with proper diet and improved digestion.
Hair is made up of 97% protein, which means that foods that are rich in protein but that are low in fat and not mucus forming are critical to hair growth. Generally speaking, animal proteins tend to be mucus-forming and abrasive.
