Hair Loss and Hair Thinning
Hair loss is common and have a variant of causes. Genetics, age, hormones, nutrient deficiencies, toxicity, medications, and autoimmunity can all lead to thinning and loss of hair.

You’ll need spinach. Spinach is iron rich and contains sebum, acting as a natural conditioner for hair. It provides omega-3 acids, magnesium, potassium, calcium, and iron. All help keep hair lustrous, shiny and keep it from falling off. Salmon’s omega 3 fatty acids enable hair to grow, keep it shiny and full. It’s anti-inflammatory that can help prevent hair shedding.
One cup of roasted chicken contains 154 milligrams of arachidonic acid, an omega-6 fatty acid found to stimulate hair growth, making it thick and healthy. Beets are rich in natural chemicals called nitrates, contributing to improved circulation, which may bring oxygen and nutrients to your hair follicles. Eggs are packed with biotin, which help hair grow. Not having enough of this vitamin can lead to hair loss. Other good sources of biotin: almonds, avocados, and salmon.
Oysters are rich in zinc, and not having enough of zinc can lead to hair loss, even the eyelashes. It helps the cells responsible for building hair. Other rich stores of zinc are beef, crab and lobster. Nuts and seeds like pistachios, walnuts and other nuts are a good food source for beta-sitosterol, oils that add to the amount of elastin in your hair. Elastin keeps hair supple and stops it from breaking.
Hair needs protein most especially. No matter your diet, meet your daily recommended protein intake by eating healthy foods- including plant-based choices like legumes, nuts, tofu, quinoa, and chia seeds. Get protein from meat, pick lean options like chicken, fish, or lean pork loin.
