Curious About Gray Hair?
Here are a few of the interesting items that I talk about in today’s podcast. Listen above to hear the full story…
Hair turns gray when the melanocyte cells stop being able to produce pigment called melanin.
Interestingly the hair doesn’t actually turn gray – it’s white because it has no pigment. It just looks gray next to the hairs with color.
Men get more gray hair than women and Caucasians get more than people of Asian and African descent.
Stress probably could make you go gray faster due to inflammation and free-radicals which affect the level of melanin.
Smoking has been linked to premature graying because it also affects the melanin levels.
Lastly, supplements aren’t of any value at this point to stop the graying of your hair.
For next week’s show I’ll have an interview with a health coach to talk about diet and healthy eating. Be sure to tune in and pick up some “healthy tips”.
