Hair Loss Prevention Vitamins
Healthy diets rich in the vitamins help synthesize the chemicals and support the
bodily processes of cellular growth that promotes a healthy set of hair. Even if
you are genetically predisposed to suffer premature hair loss, you can still delay
its onset with the right hair loss prevention vitamins in your diet. Here are some.
4 Important Vitamins for Hair Loss Prevention
1. Vitamin A
Vitamin A is an antioxidant that keeps the natural oils in your scalp. Foods rich
in it are eggs, milk and milk products like cheeses as well as vegetables like broccoli
spinach and cabbage. Poultry, fish and animal meats are also rich in vitamin A.
2. Vitamin B
Vitamin B has 12 variants that promote the body’s growth and development as they
increase metabolic rates and encourage healthy skin, the scalp and hair included.
Vitamin B3 (Niacin) helps improve blood circulation to the scalp. B5 (pantothenic)
helps fight skin disorders like acne as well as scalp disorders that lead to hair
loss. B6 (pyridoxine) inhibits DHT production that keeps hair follicles from being
nourished in androgentic alopecia. And B12 helps maintain the right metabolic rates
to enable the cells to absorb all the nutrients delivered by the blood. All the vitamin
B complexes can be found in fish, poultry, red meat and milk products. B12 is not
found in vegetables. So vegetarians are advised to take diet supplements containing
3. Vitamin C
Vitamin C is one of nature’s most effective antioxidants that help maintain healthy
hair and skin. It is most abundant in fruits and vegetables.
4. Vitamin E
Vitamin E is another powerful antioxidant that promotes blood circulation for a healthy
looking skin and scalp. A lot has been said about its anti-ageing properties but
it is mainly attributable to the fact that it helps regenerates the skin at the cellular
level by ensuring they get the right nutrients with increased blood flow. The hair
follicles are among the beneficiaries. It can be found in green vegetables, vegetable
oils, nuts and beans.
To be sure that you are taking the proper hair loss prevention vitamins needed, it
may be more expedient to have a dietary multivitamin supplement after every meal.
Consult with your doctor and check if you have any specific vitamin deficiency so
you can address it with either the right food groups or taking specific vitamin supplements.
