What Foods Stimulate Melanin Production?
Melanin is a pigment that determines the color of your hair and skin and is also very important to your skin’s health, because it protects your skin from the harmful effects of sunlight.
Make sure you consume the right foods that provide your body with nutrients used to make melanin.
According to the University of Maryland Medical Center, Copper helps produce melanin as well as elastin, a protein that gives your skin its elasticity and it can be found in oysters, organ meats (particularly the liver) and shellfish. Soy is also beneficial to your body’s melanin production thanks to a nutrient called tyrosine that can be found in many other natural sources like pumpkin seeds, lima beans and sesame seeds. Another good idea to improve your skin´s and body health is to eat nuts and legumes, including almonds, peanuts and dried beans.
