There is no doubt that eating healthy contributes to having a healthy body and healthy hair. Some vitamins play a more important role in your hair growth and quality than others, and some vitamin deficiencies have a particularly damaging and well-documented effect on your hair. Let’s look briefly at a few of these vitamins.
Yes, iron is important for your hair growth. Remember that iron is absorbed better if it is consumed with some vitamin C. Anemia is clearly associated with hair loss. If you are not anemic, however, it’s not clear whether supplementing your diet with more vitamin D helps your hair. There has been very little research on the effects of vitamin supplements on people with mild vitamin deficiencies.
We recently talked about how good pumpkin and pumpkin seeds can be for your hair. Pumpkin is high in vitamin A, vitamin C, niacin, zinc, iron, and contains cucurbitacin, a biochemical compound, shown in research to promote hair growth. Pumpkin seeds also have two things that are good for your hair: delta-7-sterine and several phytosterols including beta-sitosterol. Here's a few ways to easily add pumpkin into your diet.
Pumpkin comes in all shapes, sizes, and colors. The pumpkin we know the best in North America is the bright orange one. It’s really just a big fat squash, so, you can treat it and cook it like you would any squash. It can be roasted, baked, poached, grilled, boiled, mashed and sautéed, and once cooked, you can eat it hot or cold. The skin is edible, and so are the leaves. In cooking, a bright orange flesh is considered particularly appetizing. Raw pumpkin is pretty hard, so make sure your knife is sharp, and you have a sturdy cutting board. As the seasons change and temperatures cool you can warm up with this delicious Pumpkin soup.
1 kg pumpkin flesh, peeled and cut in cubes
1 liter + 1 C. full-fat milk
1 C. heavy cream
Salt and pepper to taste
Garnish with chopped chives and croutons. You can make homemade croutons if you feel ambitious.
Cook (poach) the pumpkin in the simmering milk until soft. Watch it carefully—this won’t take long. Let cool, then put the whole mixture either through a food mill or process it in a food processor or blender.
Reheat slowly and add cream and salt and pepper to taste. Don’t boil it.
Serve with some croutons and some fresh chopped chives.
The best part of fall has arrived, Pumpkins! There are a few foods that are especially good for hair growth. and Pumpkin (flesh) and pumpkin seeds fall in this category. Lets tap into the the amazing benefits of pumpkin seeds for your skin, hair and overall health.
Pumpkin is really just a cultivar of the squash family. In North America, we call it pumpkin, but in other parts of the world, pumpkin is just known as winter squash. Native to North America, pumkins can be easily grown in your home garden. However, canned pumpkin is readily available all year round.
Let’s take a look at few other unusual types of hair loss.
We all know that some types of chemotherapy can cause temporary hair loss. But diffuse hair loss (alopecia) can also be a symptom of cancer. Not long ago, a case was written up about a patient who presented with hair loss (and other symptoms) and was diagnosed with Hodgkin’s Disease, a type of lymphoma. Sudden hair growth or loss should always be discussed with your physician.
Yes, an underactive thyroid can cause hair loss. Talk to your doctor because your thyroid function can easily be determined by a blood test.
Other Hormonal Disorders
There is a long list of hormonal disorders that can cause hair loss. Some of them include Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) and diseases of the pituitary gland.
An excess of Vitamin A can cause hair loss (and a host of other problems.) Taking supplements can be good for you if you don’t overdo it.
