If you are looking to improve your health, body, skin, and/or hair in the new year, there are tons of supplements that can help you with your goals. First, you should make sure to see a doctor and find out if you are deficient in any vitamins and/or minerals. They can also discuss any health concerns you have and help you treat any problems. A doctor can help you determine if a supplement is right for you and your specific body type and issue. If you are interested in different types of natural supplements, a doctor that has both experience in Eastern and Western medicine could be a big help to you. Either way, it’s important that you find someone whom you trust and let them help you.
For the purposes of today’s discussion, we’re going to talk about supplements and those that contain added sugar to improve taste and make them look better. For supplements specifically made for hair issues, there are many out there that have claims to help thinning hair. Many supplements also claim to help your hair grow longer and thicker very quickly. In recent years, these fast-growing claims have been made by a lot of the supplement options that are high in sugar. While we know that hair regrowth is a marathon and not a sprint, we cannot accurately challenge any claims made by the different supplement options. Our aim is not to challenge, but it’s to provide enough information about the effects supplements and the ingredients that make up these supplements.
It is no surprise that too much sugar is bad for you. The Center for Disease Control recommends that everyone should keep their daily intake of added sugars under 10% of their food intake. If you are trying to keep your sugar intake low, why would you want to consume more sugar just from your supplements? Sure, it makes them tastier and easier to get down but sometimes the health benefits of the supplement can be outweighed by how much sugar and other nasty ingredients they add to it to make it taste better.
Look for supplements that come in a capsule form that do not have added sugar or any ingredients that you don’t need. Your supplement ingredients should be filled with vitamins, vital nutrients, and natural ingredients. They should not be filled or coated with sugar or sugar-like substances. You should also pay close attention to the websites in which the supplements are sold. There are a lot of fraudulent sites that are not scientifically backed and are basically scams. The goal of those sites is to make a quick buck and get your information. The reviews, testimonials, and social media are great signs of how effective (or ineffective) the supplements are. In addition, always look for ones that are sold from legitimate websites and have positive reviews. For example, look at the ingredients for KeraViatin Supplements. These supplements are great for those with thinning hair who need a boost in their nutritional intake.
If you’re not sure what ingredients you should be looking for, or you’re looking for an example of an ingredient list of a supplement that does not contain any sugar, here are the active ingredients in our KeraViatin Hair Supplement:

Our doctors warn us about these added preservatives in the food we consume. So why should we include them in the supplements we take?
Excess sugar is a big deal because over time, the extra sugar can cause a plethora of health issues. It can cause weight gain, acne, greasy skin, increased risk of diabetes, heart disease, cancer, and other preventable diseases. Excess sugar can also be linked to low energy levels and mental health disorders along with aging quicker.
Not only can sugar negatively affect your body, It can even affect your hair. In extreme cases, too much sugar can cause your hair to become more damaged and even fall out. It could also halt your hair’s growth. Think of it this way, if you are not getting enough vitamins, minerals and nutrients but you are pumping your body with sugar, your body will have to work extra hard to filter out the sugar and deliver nutrients to your organs. In ideal circumstances, when you are eating properly, your body naturally sends the leftover nutrients to send to your hair follicles and help them grow. Keyword being “leftover”. Your hair is not very important in terms of your organs like your heart and your liver. It is one of the last things that gets nutrients. So, you want to eat healthy and limit your intake of sugars and bad carbs and fats so your body can get the nutrients it needs and have abundance to send to your hair.
Basically, if you want to look and feel your best, you want to decrease the amount of sugar you consume every day. You might start to look at your diet and limit sugary foods but be sure to look at your vitamins and supplements as well. If you don’t like taking pills and opt for gummy vitamins and supplements, be sure to note how much added sugar is in them. You may also want to look at the type of sugar or sweetener. Some are worse for you than others. For example, stevia is a type of sweetener that is not as bad for you.
