Hair Keeps Falling Out? Try out these foods

As we do everything in our power to prevent or treat hair loss, one thing is for sure – this is a constant battle and we need all the help we can get. The first step towards results: a proper diet containing an abundance of vitamins, minerals and proteins.

First, we need proteins like keratin to give the hair flexible and strength. Among some of the protein-rich foods that you can include in your diet are salmon fillet, beef steak, omelettes, soy protein and roasted chicken breast. Also eat beans, rice and corn. This gives you a bigger range of dietary amino acids essential for keratin production.

Other important nutrients are the carbohydrates. Having a low-carb diet may also result in hair loss. Try carbohydrate-rich foods like whole grain brown rice, oats, whole grain bread, wholemeal pasta and wholegrain breakfast cereals. Take into consideration the nasty iron deficiency as this too can result in hair loss. Include in your daily meals iron-rich foods like dark green vegetables, oily fish and egg yolks.

Omega-3 fatty acids can also promote scalp health and strengthen hair growth overall. Foods such as salmon, sardines, mackerel, organic meat, flax seeds, chia seeds, walnuts and tuna will provide you with the help you need. B Vitamins play another key role to hair growth. You’ll benefit greatly by consuming breakfast cereals, eggs, cheese, yoghurt and chicken. Include this list of foods on your daily meals and you will have a perfect natural cure for hair loss.
