Hair loss affects millions of people in the world, it is caused by genetics passed on from generation to generation and uncontrolled diet that is high in saturated fat that causes cholesterol building up in the arteries and partially blocking transport of oxygen in the blood stream to the cells of the scalp in result of hair loss. Also the deficiency of minerals in your bloodstream may be another cause of hair loss. As we mentioned in other articles, hair loss may be caused by aging. Starting at age 40, the levels of the by-product prolactin of testosterone in men increases, stimulating the production of the enzyme 5-alpha reductase that causes the conversion of testosterone to gihydro-testosterones DHT causing our hair to grow back thinner or not grown back at all.
Here are some important minerals that may help to prevent hair loss and promote hair re-growth:
Iron is involved in the oxygenation of your body's red blood cells. It is essential for normal hair growth and maintaining healthy hair. If the amount of iron can not be replaced with food intake, iron deficiency will cause hair loss because of oxygen deficiency.
It helps to secrete the scalp with much needed oil and avoid dandruff that may cause hair loss.
Study shows that these tripeptide complexes may actually be able to regrow hair, even in patients with total hair loss due to alopecia. Healthy tissue concentrations of copper lie between 1.7 and 3.5 milligrams. Everything else will cause hair loss.
4. B vitamins
The deficiency of B vitamins (especially B6, B3, B5 and folic acid) in your diet may lead to hair loss.
Biotin works as an anti aging agent and helps to produce keratin in preventing gray hair and hair loss.
Sources of biotin are: whole grains, egg yolks, liver, rice and milk.
6. Vitamin A
Vitamin A is important for over-all good health. It's also beneficial to hair follicles, as it keeps the hair root lubricated. Too much vitamin A might result in hair loss.
7. Vitamin E
Vitamin E acts as an antioxidant that aids effective circulation in the scalp due to increased oxygen uptake in blood, therefore it plays an important role in promoting hair growth and preventing hair loss.
8 . CQ-10
Coenzyme Q10 (CQ-10) is an essential vitamin that provides our body with the nutrients needed to grow healthy hair. They also promote overall vitality, and contribute to beautiful skin and strong nails.
