A healthy diet is one of the most important parts of having a vibrant head of hair…and that means that a poor diet is also one of the major contributors to hair loss, in addition to factors like genetics, age, and environment. You can address losses with a medical grade dietary supplement like our Ultimate Hair, Skin & Nails Formula, and it’s always best to keep an eye on the substance and quality of your diet as well. Read our guide to the most common vitamin deficiencies that cause hair loss.
Too Much Alcohol: It’s no secret that drinking too much is bad for your body and mind in any number of ways, but it’s also one of the ways that people can start down the road to hair loss–starting with the mineral depletion it can cause. Alcohol makes the body more acidic, and that has the effect of diverting vitamins that would normally nourish your hair, toward keeping your body functional instead.
Pasteurized Dairy: Dairy products that have been pasteurized remove the enzymes that promote healthy hair growth, leaving only the vitamin deficiencies that lead to hair loss in many of the cheeses and kinds of milk you drink. It also blocks the pores, including the ones that the follicles atop your head need to stay healthy.
Soft Drinks: Sugary sodas have some of the most consistent links between nutrition and hair loss. Sugar forces your body to work overtime in using the nutrients it would ordinarily use to power your body to instead be used to break it down into a semi-usable form, and even “diet” sodas contain an abundance of aspartame, a synthetic sugar substitute that can lead to just as many hair loss vitamin deficiencies in the long run.
So now that you know some of the foods that will stop your hair growth in its tracks, what can you eat to promote healthy hair growth? You have a number of options, including:
- Fish, due to its abundance of Omega 3 fatty acids;
- Fruits and Carrots, thanks to their daily doses of necessary vitamins C and A; and
- Chicken, which contains lots of lean, healthy fats and easily digestible proteins.
The good news is that even if vitamin deficiencies have caused hair loss in the past, it’s easier than ever before to regain the head of hair you know and love no matter how you lost it. The ARTAS hair transplant system has been proven to work faster and with more efficiency than traditional means, and thanks to its automated methods it allows your plastic surgeon to bypass almost all the busywork of the procedure and concentrate on giving you the safest and most comfortable experience possible.
