Could Changing Your Diet Help Prevent Hair Loss?

hair restoration knoxvilleHair loss is something that most men will experience in their lifetime. Since hair grows continuously, there will always be a few strands falling out to make way for new growth. However, over time many men will find that they are no longer producing enough new strands of hair to replace those lost and that is when hair loss becomes a problem. It is very common, with around two-thirds of all American males experiencing significant hair loss by the age of 35. There are varied reasons for hair loss, including age, health, and genetics, but the good news is that there are also preventative measures and hair loss treatment options out there. One of the precautions you can take is changing your diet. Let’s look at some of the foods that could help prevent hair loss.

Foods Rich in Vitamin A

One of the vital nutrients that the body needs to promote healthy cell and tissue growth – including hair and scalp – is Vitamin A. It is important to include plenty of foods rich in this nutrient in a healthy, balanced diet. Vitamin A is not only going to help prevent hair loss but will have an overall impact on the healthy growth of cells and tissue throughout the body. Vitamin A occurs naturally in both plant and animal based sources. Some of the best sources include Carrots, Dark  Leafy Greens,  Fish Oil, Eggs, and Liver.

Vitamin B6, Vitamin B12 & Folic Acid

The three standard ‘B Vitamins’ (B6, B12 & Folic Acid) are essential in the formation of hemoglobin which is important for carrying oxygen through the body. Healthy, necessary hair growth depends on a rich supply of blood and oxygen. Any deficiency in these B vitamins can interrupt this supply and will result in receding hair, damage and slow regrowth. Protein rich foods like chicken, eggs, pork and soybeans are packed with B6 and B12, while leafy vegetables and fortified cereals are high in folic acid.

Boost Your Zinc Intake

Zinc deficiency is known to cause dandruff and hair loss. The reason for this is that it is the mineral responsible for promoting cell reproduction. The best sources of zinc are animal-based, including seafood and poultry. Milk and eggs can also supply zinc, but not in large quantities, so it is better to opt for mussels, shrimp, chicken, and oysters if you need a Zinc boost in your diet.

Pack in the Protein

Since our hair is primarily made up of proteins, it makes sense that a diet lacking in protein could contribute to hair loss. When the body requires protein, it will be unable to produce hair efficiently. Including plenty of lean proteins in your diet can help prevent hair loss. Lean proteins include fish, chicken, soy products, eggs, almonds, yogurt, beans and low-fat cheeses.

Drink More Water

Proper hydration is essential to many aspects of our health and can also help as part of promoting healthy hair. Do not just wash your hair with water – make sure that you are drinking lots of it too! Every single cell in the body needs water to function.
