You’ve seen these moss-like legumes at your local grocery store before, but do you know just how nutrient-rich alfalfa sprouts are, and how they can be a huge help to your hair growth? These plants contain vitamins A and E, protein, and zinc, which are all key nutrients known for conditioning, protecting, and strengthening your mane. They are also packed with vitamin C, beta-carotene, and iron, which aid in absorbing ingredients that are essential to hair growth. On top of being an amazingly nutritious vegetable, it is also readily available throughout the year. You can even grow it by yourself!
Alfalfa sprouts can be eaten with just about any meal. You can easily sprinkle them onto salads, sandwiches, and tacos, but they can also be blended into a powerful tonic that is specifically geared toward the longevity of your locks. Table the coffee for a while and try this daily alfalfa sprout-based juice, adapted from www.naturallycurly.com.
