Is There a Role For Nutrition In Treating Hair Loss?
by: Richard Mitchell
Could something as basic as inadequate nutrition really contribute to excessive shedding
of hair?

Does sensible nutrition have a role to play in helping hair to regrow?

The answer to both questions is yes! There is no doubt that poor nutrition and hectic
lifestyles can contribute to hair loss. Modern diets can be associated with a number of
nutritional deficiencies that are thought to contribute to hair loss:


The refining of whole grains reduces the B vitamin content.

Over cooking of vegetables destroys B vitamins.

Raw leafy greens are absent in most diets.

The vitamins that have been ingested are often re-directed to facilitate the digestion of
nutritionally sterile carbohydrates like sugar and white flour.

Stimulants like caffeine, nicotene and alcohol rob the body of vital nutrients.

Excessive salt intake can encourage hair loss because of its tendency to accumulate in
tissue.

Low fiber intake inhibits digestion thus reducing the body's ability to deliver nutrients to
the blood stream.
Clearly poor nutrition can cause hair loss because the body will ration nutrients in a
hierarchy of vital organs first and hair last. It is unlikely that improved nutrition alone
will result in new hair growth but it will minimize shedding and support other treatments
that encourage regrowth.
