Nutritional Deficiency As a Reason Of Hair Falling
Alopecia areata is an acquired skin disease that can affect all hair-bearing skin and is characterized by localized areas of non-scarring hair loss. Alopecia areata is rarely associated with any other external or internal medical problems. Most often these bald areas grow back their hair spontaneously. It is an autoimmune disease, when the person’s immune system attacks the body, in this case, their hair follicles. When this happens, the person's hair begins to fall out, often in clumps the size and shape of a quarter. The extent of the hair loss varies; in some cases, it is only in a few spots. In others, the hair loss can be greater.
You may be able to address nutritional deficiencies with the following supplements:
• A multivitamin daily, containing the antioxidant vitamins A, C, E, the B-complex vitamins, and trace minerals, such as magnesium, calcium, zinc, and selenium.
• Omega-3 fatty acids, such as fish oil, 1-2 capsules or 1 tablespoonful of oil daily, to help decrease inflammation. Fish oils may increase bleeding in sensitive individuals, such as those taking blood thinning mediations (including aspirin).
• Vitamin C, 500 - 1,000 mg 2 times daily, as an antioxidant.
• L-lysine, 500 - 1,000 mg daily, for hair loss.
• B-complex vitamins, 1 tablet daily, for symptoms of stress.
Biotin, often called vitamin H, is B complex component. Biotin is a proven hair growth vitamin and a preventative to excessive hair loss. It appears to metabolize fatty acids. Fatty acids are a valuable growth factor in numerous processes in the body including the hair. Biotin is also seen as an aid in preventing hair turning grey. Egg yolks contain biotin. Raw egg whites actually hinder effectiveness, but when the albumen (egg white) is cooked, the culprit - a substance called avidin is destroyed by heat. Biotin is also present in liver, milk, yeast and kidney.
Protein is a basic ingredient in many hair shampoos and conditioners and is also the major ingredient of hair itself, which is at least ninety per cent protein. Whilst this should not necessarily be the main ingredient in your diet, its importance should not be ignored. In controlled tests volunteers, supplementing their diets with protein in the form of 14g of gelatine daily, found it increased the thickness of individual hair strands by as much as 45 per cent in only two months. Diet can influence both hair growth and quality and gelatine has exhibited one of the highest specific dynamic effects of any food or supplement. Given that a strong hair is a healthy hair, the study noted that the gelatine induced increases in the diet constituted an improvement in the mechanical properties of the hair, including strength. When the volunteers stopped eating the gelatine, their hair returned to its original diameter within six months.
