Hair Loss Diet - Vitamins

Jan 6, 2008
Some forms of hair loss can be directly related to your diet. Making a change in the foods that you eat can often help slow or prevent your hair loss; it will also help keep your hair looking full and healthy. Here we will go over a few of the foods that you should include in a hair loss diet.

It is recommended that you should include foods in your diet that contain plenty of calcium, iron, and silica. Also important is that you should eat foods high in protein, as this is crucial to proper hair growth. You should also try to include a good balance of vitamins, minerals, and nutrients.

If you are not able to get the minimum daily values for the vitamins or minerals that you need then you should consider taking some form of supplement to help with reaching the levels needed. Another thing you should try to do is eat foods that are fresh and you should try to cook the foods when you plan to eat them, other foods can be eaten raw without cooking.

When you go ahead and make changes to your diet, you should try to eat the foods that are going to help and avoid the ones that are not. This will help you to become healthier in general and lead to healthy hair growth. Foods that are high in certain vitamins and nutrients should be focused on. Here w will talk about a couple of these that are important to healthy hair growth.

1. Vitamin C - By making sure to take the proper amount of this vitamin, this will help to prevent hair from splitting or breaking. This is done bye helping to produce collagen. This in turn helps with providing structure to the tissue in your body(including the tissues in your scalp) and makes everything hold together.

The best kinds of foods, which can offer you ample amounts of the above vitamin, are citrus fruits, berries and melons, along with vegetables such as potatoes, peppers and dark green leafy ones.

2. Copper - This mineral is found in trace amounts in the body, but it is still essential in the proper formation of hemoglobin. The hemoglobin allows the red blood cells to carry oxygen, it is also vital in that it helps insure that a sufficient amount of blood is supplied to the hair.

In order to boost the amount of copper your body absorbs you should look to increase the amount of organ meats (such as liver), seafood, nuts and seeds in your diet. However, you should make sure that you only take the recommended daily intake of 2 Mg of copper each day and no more.

Along with Copper and Vitamin C, that you should be getting an adequate daily amount of, there are others that are equally important to your hair loss diet. Each day you should take the recommended daily amounts of Vitamin A, Vitamin B6, Vitamin B12, Zinc, And Also Protein. Water is also very important in that it will help transport all the vitamins and minerals that you are trying to get to your hair to make it look and grow better.
