Natural Hair Loss Treatment: Diet and Nutrition

Posted by

Yes, diet and nutrition plays a critical role in maintaining healthy hair and reversing hair loss. We’ll take a look at the essential vitamins and minerals that will help address your hair loss problems.

Although certain factors have been definitely identified as contributors to hair loss, we must keep in mind that hair is part of the complete biological system of the human body.

Being a system, problems in one part of the system can contribute to dysfunctions in other parts; chain reactions occur when one part of the body malfunctions, causing other parts within the system to falter.

To maintain optimum health, it is best to maintain a healthy diet and regular exercise regimen.

Defining exactly what a healthy diet is when it comes to preventing hair loss can be a little more complex.

Principally, the main vitamins, minerals, and nutrients that one must ingest in some form to maintain healthy hair are:

Vitamin A
All B vitamins – particularly vitamins B-6 and B-12
Folic Acid
Biotin
Vitamin C
vitamin E
Copper
Iron
Zinc
Iodine
Protein
Silica
Essential fatty acids (EFA)
Water

Although hair loss can be caused by many other variables, lack of proper nutrition will cause hair loss in many people.  Fortunately, adopting a proper diet that includes the nutrients listed here here can reverse hair loss.
