iVillage.com: The Secret to Beautiful Hair? It's in Your Kitchen!

Mushrooms

A tasty source of antioxidants, mushrooms are also rich in pantothenic acid, also known as Vitamin B5, a coenzyme. Like other B vitamins, pantothenic acid is a favorite ingredient in shampoos and is essential to help promote healthy blood flow and normal metabolism that are needed by the scalp and hair follicles, as well as by the rest of the body. Claims that pantothenic acid can reverse hair graying or prevent hair loss are common, although more research is needed to prove that to be true. A half a cup of mushrooms offers about 10 percent of the adequate intake of pantothenic acid for adults in a day. Other great sources of pantothenic acid: Whole grains, lobster, eggs, corn.
