HAIR LOSS: Vitamins and minerals supplement

Hair lossAlopecia – is a concern that affects us all, although we hope it doesn’t.
Hair loss occurs for a great many reasons—from pulling it out to having it killed off by cancer chemotherapy.
Some causes are considered natural, while others signal serious health problems. Some conditions are confined to the scalp. Others reflect disease throughout the body. Being plainly visible, the skin and its components can provide early signs of disease elsewhere in the body.

As health of your hair reflects of the overall state of health, so it is important pay attention on nutritional and lifestyle changes which improve health.

Top Recommended Supplements

B-vitamins: Vitamin B is essential for proper hair growth. A deficiency of the biotin and PABA (b-vitamins) can cause hair loss. Supplements of biotin may strengthen hair, stimulate new hair growth, slow hair loss, and prevent greying, particularly in those who are deficient in this nutrient.

PABA (para-aminobenzoic acid) may protect hair roots and help prevent hair loss. It can also reverse greying in cases where the cause is a deficiency of PABA or other B-vitamins.

Essential fatty acids: A deficiency can cause hair loss; supplements can help improve the health of scalp and hair. Take a blend of fish, faxseed, and evening primrose or borage oil.

Orthosilicic acid: Orthosilicic acid enhances collagen formation and makes hair stronger and thicker. One study found that it improved brittleness of hair and nails. Taking silicon supplements will not yield the same results as silicon is poorly absorbed.
