Hair is primarily made up of keratin, a protein produced in hair follicles. The daily allowance of protein (0.8 to 1 gm/kg body weight) is a must to enable growth of new hair in place of one that is shed.
Many minerals & vitamins play an important role in protein metabolism to help absorb it better and utilize it for new cell generation. More often than not, lack of adequate proteins, minerals & vitamins in our daily diet clubbed with pollution and stress makes your hair unhealthy.
This crunchy protein-packed nut is an excellent source of biotin (Vitamin B7), also nicknamed as the "hair vitamin". It is essential for breaking down proteins in diet into amino acids that form keratin.
Although it is required in a very small quantity, biotin deficiency can create havoc in one's life by bringing up signs like hair thinning, dull texture and reduced hair growth.
