Stop Hair Loss With Foods, Is this possible?
Studies show that yes.
In the United States alone, more than 80 million men and women lose hair as they age, and globally, people affected by hair loss are hundreds of millions.
Although the problem is more common in males, the American Hair Loss Association says that 40 percent of American women suffer from this problem and that 85 percent of males, at the age of 50, already have a detectable amount of hair loss hair.
The causes are multiple and range from hereditary baldness, autoimmune disorders, stress, lack of sleep, poor nutrition and the advancement of age.
Poor nutrition and vitamin deficiency is an important factor for hair loss.
In women, iron deficiency raises the risk of hair loss and serum ferritin levels below 30 milligrams / milliliter are strongly associated with hair loss, on the other hand, low levels of zinc are associated with episodes of alopecia areata
But according to recent research, it is possible through changes in diet to grow hair.
The following foods, rich in nutrients, have proven to be effective for hair growth.

Men with hair problems participated in a 24-week study, one group was given 400 mg of pumpkin seed oil daily and the other group was given a placebo.
Men who took 400 mg of pumpkin oil experienced 40% hair growth.
On the other hand, it has been shown that rosemary oil promotes hair growth as much as minoxidil, but with less itching on the scalp.
To prevent and treat hair loss, zinc is essential. A study of 312 men and women, regardless of the cause of their hair loss, showed that everyone had significantly low levels of zinc.
An alternative to raise zinc levels is to consume oysters, which according to the National Institutes of Health, contain more zinc than any other food.
