Zinc and vitamin D3 are two nutrients your body requires to stay healthy and happy, and when the two are combined, their potential benefits are maximized, especially when it comes to hair health. Here are some of the powerful, synergistic effects of zinc and vitamin D3.
Understanding zinc and vitamin D3
Zinc helps support your metabolism and immune system and contributes to cellular functions that impact wound healing, skin health, hair growth and proper hormonal balance. Foods that serve as good sources of zinc include oysters and other seafood, red meat, poultry and oily seeds such as hemp or pumpkin seeds. Adults' recommended daily zinc intake is 8 mg for women and 11 mg for men.
Vitamin D3 can be found in foods such as fish, beef liver and eggs and can also be gained through exposure to sunlight. It’s an important vitamin for supporting bone and skin health, mood regulation and assuring your immune system functions properly. The recommended intake of vitamin D3 for adults is 600 IUs per day.
The combination of zinc and vitamin D3
Studies have shown that having adequate levels of zinc in the body improves the benefits of vitamin D3 and vice versa. Each nutrient helps the other complete its job. The exponential benefits that come with combining the two include:
Clearer skin and reduction in acne
Healthier hair growth
Healthier nail growth
A more youthful appearance overall
Zinc and vitamin D3’s effect on hair health
One of the roles of vitamin D3 is stimulating new and old hair follicles. Zinc helps the body build healthy cells and absorb nutrients properly, strengthening hair follicles and preventing hair from falling out. A deficiency in either nutrient may cause the body to produce weaker hair follicles, stunting new hair growth.
