Too often we point to genetics as the cause for hair loss. However, it could be just as likely that a really poor diet is actively accelerating the rate of hair fall. This is where nutrient rich natural treatments can help, as well as providing countless additional benefits.
A good diet, rich in skin-nurturing vitamins and the right protein building blocks, will give your body the tools it needs to combat thinning hair and hair loss, in both women and men. All natural body processes rely on a good mix of minerals, sometimes to ensure optimal skin health and sometimes to help in the fight against disease.
Some of the vitamins that aid in hair growth include:
- Vitamin A: essential for most cells, and particularly for the healthy growth and development of skin cells.
- B-Vitamins: one of the B vitamins called biotin, is linked to hair growth, and a deficiency can cause hair loss.
- Vitamin E: acts as an antioxidant and works to protect against hair damaging oxidative stress.
- Iron: facilitates the carrying of oxygen to blood cells, which is imperative for hair growth.
- Zinc: helps to regulate the oil glands in hair follicles.
- Protein: essential for proper hair growth, particularly as the hair shaft is made entirely of protein.
It is essential to ensure that you have a diet rich in leafy greens, nuts, grains, and oily fish. All of these foods contain the vitamins and minerals, in varying amounts, and are always recommended additions to any diet. Consider consulting a medical professional to determine what nutritional deficits may be affecting you.
Additionally, another mechanism that may be affecting hair growth and the rate of hair loss, is the level of dihydrotestosterone (DHT) in the body. Basically, DHT is a by-product of the breakdown of testosterone in the body. DHT binds to hair follicles and causes them to shrink. Although DHT is part of a healthy growth and development cycle, later in life it triggers the onset of hair loss.
You can try to remedy hair loss by integrating some natural DHT blockers into your diet. Again, nuts and seeds are great as they contain L-Lysine, which is known to help block the action of DHT on hair follicles. Similarly, leafy greens and foods that contain zinc also seem to reduce levels of DHT in the body.
That said, if you’re experiencing severe or accelerating levels of hair loss, it may be worth getting in contact with Advanced Hair Studio for a Hair Check so that we can suggest a more advanced form of treatment for your hair.
