Eat this for healthier hair, Day 2-Pork Loin

I have to first apologize, when I first posted this post highlighting 7 foods to eat for healthier hair, I promised to focus on one of those foods every day, end I did a post on the first food, eggs, and life got in the way and I haven't posted since. So, here is the second food in our "Eat this for healthier hair" series.


Pork tenderloin is an excellent source of the vitamin B6 and the mineral zinc. Zinc is involved with tissue growth and repair, and it keeps the oil glands around the hair working properly. Low zinc levels can cause hair loss, dandruff, and slow growth. Low levels of the B vitamins can cause shedding, slow hair growth, and weak hair that is prone to breakage.

Here are some excellent recipes (with external links) using pork tenderloin. I have personally tried each of them, and found them to be quite delicious and simple to prepare:

If you don't eat pork, there are other foods that can provide you with the same beneficial vitamins and minerals found in pork tenderloin. Garbanzo beans, salmon, chicken breast, and bananas are all good sources of vitamin B6. Chicken, chick peas, peanut butter and crab contain high levels of the beneficial nutrient zinc.
