According New York City nutritionist Keri Glassman, author of The O2 Diet to researchers, eating lobster can improve your appearance. This low-fat source of protein, a key ingredient in stimulating hair growth, also contains high amounts of zinc, a mineral credited with preventing acne and boosting the immune system. It also contains pantothenic acid, a B vitamin key to making hair look shinier. Eat lobster, look great!
It’s just another reason to head for the lobsters and lighthouses of Maine. From June 1-30, 2011 the Historic Inns of Rockland, Maine is offering Lobster 101: Lobsters, Lighthouses & Luxury package.
