If you are looking for ways to stop hair fall and improve hair growth, then you have come to the right place. During our research on the subject, we discovered that the humble lentil is a key ingredient, if you want a head full of luxurious healthy hair. So, instead of buying expensive haircare products, try a diet rich in lentils

Lentils are a superfood for vegetarians, as they boost overall health. Lentils include daals  such as urad, toor, masoor and chana as well as moong, chavli and rajma. These lentils are prominently used in Indian food and are easy to prepare.

Lentils are also rich in iron, folic acid, protein, vitamin B, potassium, magnesium, phosphorous and fibre. Iron and folic acid are essential for hair growth and increase the supply of oxygen to the brain which propels hair growth. Hence, head massages are also beneficial for the scalp to improve circulation. Likewise, folic acid also improves hair growth by transporting oxygen from your blood to the hair follicles. Protein from lentils is also essential for cell building.

All these factors are crucial for hair growth. Good circulation to the scalp and hair follicles includes faster cell renewal and strong hair. So lentils are the cornerstone for hair growth.

Besides haircare, lentils are beneficial for preventing heart disease, increasing energy levels, improving the digestive system and regulating blood sugar levels. Also, due to their high fibre content, lentils reduce one’s chances of constipation and they soak out the cholesterol, thereby lowering the risk of heart diseases. Besides fibre, the magnesium and folate present in lentils also prevent heart diseases. These minerals are beneficial for protecting the arteries from cholesterol build-up and calcium.

The insoluble fibre in lentils stabilises blood sugar levels, making it a diabetes friendly ingredient. Lentils also increase the energy reserves of the body.
