The Importance of Nutrition in Hair Loss

Nutritional deficiencies can contribute to hair loss by weakening its structure, causing breakage and slow regeneration. These problems with hair that are caused by nutritional deficiencies can be corrected with a proper and balanced diet. The main elements that are involved are Vitamin A, Vitamin B, Biotin, Vitamin C, Copper, Iron, Zinc, Protein and Water.

That is why it is very important to take into account those tips related to nutrition, since hair, as well as skin and nails, are in constant renewal and their metabolism and regeneration are very sensitive to nutritional deficits. In fact, any vitamin, mineral or protein deficiency can cause weakness, fragility and hair loss. Lack of iron or iron deficiency anemia can cause it. A deficiency in iron, even without anemia, can deteriorate and cause it to fall.

However, there are other causes of non-nutritional origin that can cause hair loss: nervousness, stress, environmental factors, dermatological problems, certain medications, seasonal changes (during the fall, for example, many people will fall more hair Of normal), the use of certain hair products (shampoos, lotions), etc …

Hair is also composed of other minerals: magnesium, silicon, selenium, copper … and to keep it healthy you must ensure the intake of these nutrients through diet. It is also essential to maintain a good supply of proteins of high biological quality: eggs, milk, fish, cheese …, not forgetting vegetable fats (nuts and olive oil) that avoid having dry and brittle hair. Linoleic acid (present in sunflower and soybean oil) is essential to enjoy bright and healthy hair.

The importance of Biotin and Folic Acid in our diet

The association of biotin and folic acid helps the metabolic activities of tissues that have cells of rapid multiplication, as is the case of our hair, skin and nails.

Biotin plays an important role in the health of the epidermis, hair and nails. For people who follow a healthy diet, biotin deficiency is rare. In addition to absorbing it through meals, biotin is generated by the bacteria in our gut. However, in some cases, biotin deficiency can cause hair loss.

Biotin is found in a wide variety of foods, such as: eggs, liver, on yeast bread and cereals.

Folic Acid, also known as Folacin, is an important nutritional element involved in DNA synthesis. It also participates in the metabolism of important amino acids and collaborates with vitamin B12 and Nicotinic Acid in various functional actions.

Folic Acid participates in cell multiplication and in the formation of red blood cells and white blood cells and in the synthesis of several neuromediators. The reference for daily absorption of Folic Acid is 400 micrograms for an average adult and we can find it in vegetables, orange juice, avocado, beets, broccoli, brewer’s yeast, liver, wheat germ and In some fortified cereals.
