Blueberries contain antioxidants as well as vitamins A, B, C, K, and proanthocyanidins. Proanthocyanidins stimulate hair growth at the follicle level. The natural chemical encourages the follicles to produce the keratin faster, which means more hair growth. Blueberries have ample amounts of B12, which is not only suitable for your energy but also aids in preventing those gray hairs. There isn’t any conclusive data as to how premature graying occurs in certain people. Genes and Vitamin B12 deficiency are said to be the primary factors.
