Premature Graying is a condition where hair tends to start graying earlier, usually around adulthood. Want to know what to do about it?

Many tend to have gray hairs around 25, with their hair losing color. But when young, sporting gray hair that marks age isn’t considered a sign of being wise. So, what to do when you look older than you are?

Premature graying is often associated with nutritional deficiencies especially Iron and Vitamin B12. First step would be to make sure you’re not lacking in both. However, that’s not really difficult considering Iron levels can be improved by consuming iron-rich foods including greens and red vegetables, while Vitamin B12 can be acquired from sprouts.
