What Vitamins For Hair Loss?

 

Vitamins are chemical compounds that are necessary for the daily operations of the body and in the maintenance of cellular function and biological metabolism.

 

Vitamins were not meant to be ingested in large amounts; but rather, in small amounts that are deemed sufficient by the body to maintain general wellbeing.

 

Vitamin deficiencies often result in a myriad of problems, from poor eyesight to the biggest enemy, hair loss.

Vitamin A

Known as the “eye vitamin”, vitamin A is also necessary to maintain good skin and good hair. Essentially, vitamin A is responsible for protecting the hair follicles on the macro and micro level from damage from free radicals.

 

Free radicals are a class of compounds that are produced as by-products of cellular metabolism. Free radicals have the capacity to destroy the cellular membranes of individual cells. When this happens, cellular ageing is pre-empted.

 

If your diet is notoriously low in vitamin A, you probably already have very dry hair. The recommended daily allowance for vitamin A has been tagged at 900 mcg (or micrograms) per day. Any more than this amount is unnecessary.

 

Foods rich in this vitamin include:

Carrots

Broccoli

Liver

Squash

Spinach

Kale

Sweet potatoes

Milk

Butter

Cheese

The B-vitamins Group

There’s no such thing as a singular vitamin B, because there’s a whole group of related compounds that are under the collective nomenclature of “B-vitamins”. It is generally believed that B-vitamins are responsible for keeping the vital hair follicles nourished. Inversely, with insufficient B-vitamins in the body, the hair follicles would starve. There are different types of B-vitamins, each with its own unique function:

 

Biotin- responsible for the cellular transportation of carbon dioxide, biotin is also responsible for normal cell growth because it’s responsible for releasing energy. You can get biotin from food sources such as nuts and other legumes.

 

Folic acid- apart from being a vital compound that negates any potential birth defects of the unborn, folic acid is also necessary in the maintenance of cellular hair production. Normal hair production is dependent on normal cellular division and that’s what folic acid can do.

 

Generally, you can get your dose of the B-vitamins from the following food sources:

Milk

Meat

Dark, green veggies

Cereals

Grains

Pasta

Breads

Mushrooms

Organ meats

Brewer’s yeast

Eggs

Wheat germ

Berries

Polished white rice

Poultry

Tuna

 

Vitamin C

Vitamin C or ascorbic acid is an essential vitamin for the maintenance of the protein collagen in the skin (generally) and the scalp. Apart from this, vitamin C is a very potent anti-oxidant (like vitamin A) and can even help delay the outward or physical signs of ageing.

 

Presently, medical science touts that 90 mg of ascorbic acid per day is sufficient for normal bodily needs. However, you should not exceed 2 grams per day.

 

Rich food sources of vitamin C are:

Tomatoes and tomato products

Citrus produce

Cantaloupe

Broccoli

Spinach

Green peppers

Cabbage

Potatoes
