Hence, consume more and more amount of lentils, mushrooms, soy products, molasses, garlic, liver, dried spirulina, cashew nuts, roasted pumpkin seeds, garbanzo beans, dried herbs, cocoa powder and copper rich vegetables.
  • PABA or Para-amino benzoic acid (PABA) is one of the Vitamin B complex that protects our cells from the ultraviolet rays of the sun and enhances the utilization of pantothenic acid in our body that stimulates other catalase enzymes to neutralize the bleaching effect of Hydrogen Peroxide. For this you can consume beans, lentils, green leafy vegetables, yeast, liver or organ meat.

Non-vegetarians can consume a good amount of seafood like crab, lobster, tuna, mackerel, and sardines etc. that are extremely rich in Iodine.
  • Manganese activates several enzymes in our body that further stimulates bio-chemical processes in our body to prevent hair graying. Hence, consume more green leafy vegetables, raspberries, pineapples, peanuts, avocados, almonds, walnuts, peanuts, etc.
  • Vitamin A keeps the Sebaceous glands active that secretes sebum to prevent drying of the hair follicles. So a good amount of mangoes, carrots, sweet potatoes, spinach and animal liver consumption will kill chances of hair graying.

Besides following the above, you should also start practicing yoga or aerobics in order to keep down your stress level. A good sleep at night and reduced consumption of tobacco, coffee and tea are also necessary to keep your hair black.
