Hair is an amazing thing but also scary. Hair can tell us a lot about our health and all those fun stuff. I never understood why calcium is so important for women as we age. When I was still living at home my mom would tell me to take calcium supplements because I don't drink enough milk. I'm lactose and it's prevented me from enjoying certain type of cheese and dairy products.
Recently, I learned calcium deficiency can cause hair to thin. It's a fact we should not overlook. Couple months ago I realized my hair has been falling off more than usual. I know my diet was not good and on top of that I had a lack of exposure to the sun. Women is suppose to have a minimum of 2,000 units of vitamin D per day but I was WAY below average. On top of that I did not have enough omega-3 intake that helps process vitamin D. In other words, I was nutritional imbalanced. This caused more hair fall off than usual which lead to stress.
So eat your vitamins!
