Gray hair is usually caused by the loss of melanin.
And mostly occurs as one grows older, because with time, melanin in the body gradually decreases.

However, gray hair is considered premature in people under the age of 35.

You can avoid getting gray hair early if you go by these Vitamins and Foods

Liver helps to break down hydrogen peroxide, a contributing factor to gray hair. It is also an element rich in catalase, which counteracts the effects of hydrogen peroxide.

But go easy on it, do not consume too much liver as large amount of it contains trans fats and cholesterol that can jeopardize health.

In addition, liver goes well with a large quantity of fresh vegetables.
