Article # 371. Green tea benefits of Hair loss and growth

You either love it or you hate but there’s always something about this uniquely flavoured tea that has people attempting to down at least a cup a day. With so many apparent health benefits permeating within this little pot it was only a matter of time before someone discovered the advantages could radiate through our scalps. The latest claim is that drinking several cups of green tea or taking it in capsule form on a daily basis will reduce the risk of hair lossbut is it true or are we sipping on something unsettlingly familiar to the inside of a dirty dishwasher for nothing?
It was originally believed that the catechins found in the green tea had 5-alpha-reductase inhibiting properties which means DHT (dihydrotestosterone – the substance that causes hair loss in men and women) could be repressed and hair loss could be avoided.* However, more recent studies suggest that it is the anti-inflammatory properties in green tea that are linked to hair growth, but the bottom line question remains – does green tea prevent hair loss?
In a study of mice stricken with hair loss, research showed that hair loss was halted in all mice which received green tea in their drinking water and even triggered new hair growth in some of the mice. As for the mice who were not invited to the tea party, their hair loss continued.
“There is abundant evidence that polyphenolic sub-stances are considered as anti-inflammatory and have stress inhibitory characteristics, and there is evidence that stress inhibits hair growth,” the study said.
It is true that stress contributes to hair loss, so have we finally found the great green answer to hair loss? Can a relaxing sip of tea keep the hair on our heads from falling out? Well, let’s not get too far ahead of ourselves…
Interestingly, the same study discovered that green tea does not stop hair loss by blocking DHT, as previously thought and as we all know, there are genetic factors in hair loss and no amount of anti-inflammatory tea has yet proven it can work its magic that deep.
Take more antioxidant foods to prevent hair loss and add substitute green tea instead of coffee or other caffeine drinks.


  1. Hi there would you mind sharing which blog platform you're working with?

    I'm planning to start my own blog in the near future but I'm having
    a tough time selecting between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal.

    The reason I ask is because your design seems different then most blogs and I'm looking for
    something completely unique. P.S Apologies for getting off-topic but I had
    to ask!

  2. If you are planning to engage in a personal injury settlement, seek
    the services of our experienced Los Angeles attorneys.

    Injury attorneys are lawyers that actually work
    to relieve the stress of the hard time by recovering
    compensation for the injury. Whether the property has a private owner, is owned by a company or
    is the premises of a business, an incident report should be given.

  3. To crosscheck the same, you can also turn off the phone, remove the SIM, pop in it back
    again and turn on the phone. Plus it lets you
    add your own custom account types which are not covered by
    the pre-defined types. While the company never directly acknowledged the existence of the blue editions of Office 2007
    or Windows XP, numerous technical sources stepped forward to clear up the confusion.

  4. One can also learn nail art through courses offered by some professional nail
    salons. The French manicure is no longer the only option to
    get stylish nails, even though it is still a favorite among many women. Brush on a base coat before you start your nail art.

  5. Woah! I'm really digging the template/theme of this
    website. It's simple, yet effective. A lot of times it's tough to
    get that "perfect balance" between usability and appearance.
    I must say you have done a excellent job with this.
    In addition, the blog loads super quick for me on Opera.
    Excellent Blog!
