Article # 374. Prevent hair loss with these foods




List of nutrients and their functions in hair growth and what their absence does to your hair. We also list various vegetarian and non-vegetarian sources which contain these nutrients and are must-haves if you want radiant, luscious hair.

Nutrient
Required for
Effect of deficiency on hair
Vegetarian sources
Non-vegetarian sources
Protein
These are building blocks of every tissue of the body including hair and scalp. It helps in new hair generation to replace the ones that are lost.
Dry and brittle hair; thinning of scalp due to non-replacement of the shedding hair.
Proteins from beans, nuts, grains etc are good but not optimal since they contain protein in the incomplete form.
Proteins from animal sources are the best eg:
meat, chicken, fish, eggs, milk, cheese.
Vitamin C
(If you are a smoker,
 your requirement for Vitamin C doubles)
This vitamin is required for producing collagen which is essential for holding tissues in the hair together.
Weak and brittle hair leading to split ends and hair loss.
Oranges, lemon, sweet lime, berries, watermelon, palak, methi, tomatoes and potatoes.
Not available from animal sources
Iron
(If you are a woman, your requirement for iron is even more since you lose blood and iron during menstruation. Pregnant and lactating women also need more iron)
Required for formation of hemoglobin in turn providing enough oxygen and blood to the hair
Weakening of the hair and hair loss.
Non-heme iron from palak, rajma, dal, chana, soyabeans
Meat, chicken, eggs, fish are the better sources since heme iron from animal sources is more easily absorbed.

  1. I know this if off topic but I'm looking into starting my own weblog and was wondering what all is needed to get set up? I'm assuming having a
    blog like yours would cost a pretty penny? I'm not very internet savvy so I'm not
    100% sure. Any tips or advice would be greatly appreciated.
    Thanks
