==== ==== Hair loss is becoming more and more prevalent as our society increases their intake of high fat, processed foods that have little if any nutrition. It is not the fat and salt that is so bad, but the lack of vitamins and minerals that lead to rampant hair loss and other health issues that we see increasing through society. http://www.amazon.com/Hair-Balding-Alternative-Medicineebook/dp/B008C2R3RQ/ref=sr_1_1?s=digital-text&ie=UTF8&qid=1340396485&sr=11&keywords=kerri+ryan+HAIR+LOSS ==== ====
Fast foods in particular are the biggest culprit to hair loss. They are full of fat, salt, and sugar, and are void of just about all the vitamins and minerals needed to promote strong hair and its growth. Seeing how the typical diet these days is built around processed, fast food, it is no wonder why we are seeing pattern baldness in both men and women. Saturated and Trans fat Foods such as meat, poultry, and fried foods contain high saturated fat levels. Foods such as margarine, cheese, and butter contain high amounts of trans fat. These foods cause cholesterol to build up in your arteries and small veins in your scalp resulting in less oxygen being delivered to the cell in your body, including the cells on the follicles. This can be alleviated by adding lecithin to the diet. Lecithin is a natural emulsifier that will dilute the saturated fats into smaller particles, allowing them to be processed through the arterial walls, and on to complete digestion. Lecithin is removed during commercial food processing in order to gain a longer shelf life. Foods that contain Aspartame and Monosodium Glutamate Monosodium Glutamate contain chemicals that causes weight gain, increased appetite and also causes various kinds of health problems such as hair loss. Aspartame contains toxic chemicals that make you gain weight, increases hunger and causes medical problems like migraines and poor blood circulation. Smoking It is well known that smoking causes numerous problems, not the least of which is hair loss. As we mentioned in the previous article, smoking can reduce blood flow to the scalp causing hardening in the arteries, limit blood flow and make hair loss worse. Artificial Color Artificial color added to hair dyes contains chemical compounds that take their toll on the body's natural balance. Specific foods to avoid include colored drinks, color-coated candies, gummy and chewy candies, and many colored cereals. Preservatives These are potentially toxic to the adrenal glands, liver and kidneys and are known to cause hair loss and prevent hair growth as well as several other health issues. Food Packaging Polyvinyl chloride is a known carcinogen, and it's often used as plastic food wrap. It is toxic with high amounts causing damage to the adrenal glands, liver and kidneys resulting in hair loss. Salt Eating too much salt can lead to fluid retention and increased blood pressure that cause less
oxygen to be delivered to the body's cells including cells in your scalp in result of losing hair. The best way to reverse hair loss and promote new hair growth is with the addition of vitamins and minerals. Hair and finger nails are one of the best ways to see what state your health is in, so if these are failing, chances are you need just about every nutrient there is. TO start with; a) Iron Iron is involved in the oxygenation of your body's red blood cells. It is essential for normal hair growth and maintaining healthy hair. If the amount of iron cannot be replaced with food intake, iron deficiency will cause hair loss because of oxygen deficiency. b) Zinc It helps to coat the scalp with much needed oil and avoid dandruff that may cause hair loss. c) Copper Study shows that these tripeptide complexes may actually be able to regrow hair, even in patients with total hair loss due to alopecia. Healthy tissue concentrations of copper lie between 1. 7 and 3. 5 milligrams. Everything else will cause hair loss. d) B vitamins The deficiency of B vitamins (especially B6, B3, B5 and folic acid) in your diet is the biggest contributor to hair loss known to date. Because these vitamins are not fat soluble, that need to be eaten every day. They are found in green leafy vegetables, meats and cheese, but are easily obtained through drinking a commercial Vitamin Water or two, every day. e) Biotin Biotin works as an anti-aging agent and helps to produce keratin in preventing gray hair and hair loss. Sources of biotin are: whole grains, egg yolks, liver, rice and milk. Another element known to reverse the greying of hair is PABA (para amino benzoic acid). When as little as 300 mg are taken daily, it has been known to restore natural hair color without any side effects. f) Vitamin A Vitamin A is important for over-all good health. It's also beneficial to hair follicles, as it keeps the hair root lubricated. There are some who claim that too much vitamin A might result in hair loss; but we are not aware of any legitimate study that proves that. Just the opposite has been found to be true; the human body needs vitamin A for numerous functions, including hair regeneration. g) Vitamin E Vitamin E acts as an antioxidant that aids effective circulation in the scalp due to increased oxygen uptake in blood, therefore it plays an important role in promoting hair growth and preventing hair loss. Vitamin E is also found in the very structure of each and every cell in the body, known to reverse even severe conditions brought on genetically, such as cancer, muscle disease, and heart disease. h) CQ-10 Coenzyme Q10 (CQ-10) is an essential vitamin that provides our body with the nutrients needed to grow healthy hair. They also promote overall vitality, and contribute to beautiful skin and strong nails.
