years. But if more than 50 percent of the hair turns gray before the age
of 40 years then it is known as premature hair graying. This premature
hair graying problem can happen due to certain health reasons like
anemia, stress and thyroid, lack of vitamin B12, vitiligo and low bone
mineral density. There are some very good natural remedies for gray
