So yesterday, we spoke about how "society" has made our "HAIR" an important thing to us.
You know . . . the "looking good factor" . . .
But . . . in reality . . . it actually is important. . .
You see . . . our "hair" . . . and I'm not just talking about what's on our head . . . is important for maintaining skin health . . . due to each "hair" follicle having blood vessels, nerves and fat surround it.
With "hair" follicles being rich in "stem" cells . . . that promote healing of the skin . . . which is helpful if we have a cut or wound.
And our "hair" is a good insulator that can keep us "warm" . . . and protect the skin from sun damage.
The body's "hair" can also detect parasites or anything on the skin more easily . . . due to this fuzzy covering
So we need our "hair" . . . all over our body!
But . . , where does "taurine" come into play???
Well . . . it actually has a lot to do with our "hair"
So the question for today is this . . . How does "taurine" fit into this picture of strong, healthy, beautiful hair????
Well . . . simply said . . . "taurine" is used by the connective tissue, root sheath and hair bulbs . . . leading to the promotion of "hair" survival and growth.
You see . . . the main component of our "hair" . . . as well as our skin and nails . . . is a protein called "keratin" . . .
And increasing our intake of "taurine" can increase the amount of "keratin" and help to strengthen our "hair".
Now . . . what are some of the symptoms we may notice if we're "taurine" deficient???
Well . . . that would be . . . vision impairment, high blood pressure, hypothyroidism, kidney disorders, anxiety, obesity and depression
And what foods are rich in "taurine"???
Well . . . that would be . . . muscle meat (beef), scallops, tilapia, octopus, tuna, turkey, chicken, seaweed, fish, eggs, almonds and hazelnuts.
And tomorrow, we'll talk about another amino acid for our "hair"
