*********************************
Vitamin A and Hair Loss
*********************************


If hair loss is due to thyroid dysfunction, eat more foods rich in vitamin A and iodine or take the appropriate Vitamin A and iodine supplements. But be cautious because, excessive intake of Vitamin A can cause hair loss. Taking large doses of vitamin A (100,000 IU or more daily) for a long period of time, on the other hand, can trigger hair loss, but stopping the vitamin A will reverse the problem. As in case of vitamin A deficiencies, often hair will grow back when the deficiency is corrected.


A deficiency of Vitamin A will cause dry hair and rough skin. Vitamin A is stored in the liver and if large doses (50,000 - 100,000 iu daily) are taken for a prolonged period the liver cannot store the A vitamin, and it can build up in the body to give unpleasant side effects which include nausea, headaches, hair loss, drowsiness and weight loss.


The R.D.A. for vitamin A is 2,500 iu to 5,000 iu.


*********************************
Vitamin B and Hair Loss
*********************************


Hair loss can occur when a diet is lacking important B vitamins - especially B6, biotin, inositol and folic acid. The B vitamins, especially B5 (pantothenic acid and B3 (niacin), are especially important for hair growth. All of the B Vitamins help make your hair healthy. These important vitamins include folic acid, vitamin B3, which is niacin, and inositol. Vitamins B5, which is pantothenic acid, and vitamin B6, which is biotin, are also necessary for proper health. B vitamins are known to restore hair and nails and contribute to a healthy circulation system. If you have diet induced hair loss it is wise to take a B vitamin complex daily. It is surprising how many people do not get enough B vitamins in their daily food intake.

Vitamin D and Hair Loss

Researchers and scientists have conducted an experiment using mice as their medium. According to the study, vitamin D can indeed help in preventing hair loss and this is supported by the effects of giving the 'D' vitamin to the mice. If this occurs in young adults, the individual may be suffering from vitamin deficiency, particularly vitamin D

Omega 3 is a factor that affects the biological process of the 'D' vitamin. The modern lifestyle of today usually involves doing mostly indoor activities and so you don't get enough sunlight which is an excellent source of vitamin D.

Vitamin E and Hair Loss

Vitamin E is important for healthy hair growth and reducing hair loss. Vitamin E can be found in avocados, nuts, seeds, and olive oil. Vitamin E increases oxygen uptake, which improves circulation to the scalp.
It improves health and growth of hair. Since hair health is tied to the immune health, vitamin E is believed to stimulate hair growth by enhancing the immune function. A Canadian physician who started going grey was able to reverse the process by taking 800iu of vitamin E in capsule form daily. At the age of 68 after some 15 years of taking vitamin E he still has a healthy head of thick black hair, and is the envy of men half his age.


Vitamin E has also been shown to retard the ageing process. It has been suggested that grey hair is a symptom of body degeneration so a supplement of vitamin E can only be beneficial whether you have grey hair or not. The best natural sources of vitamin E are wheat germ, Soya beans, broccoli, brussel sprouts, spinach and eggs.

Other good sources of protein are: low-fat cheese, eggs, fish, beans, brewer's yeast and yogurt. The hair is comprised mostly of protein. To encourage hair growth, adhere to a diet rich in protein. A recommended diet for this purpose includes calves liver, brewer's yeast, wheat germ, and two tablespoons of granulated lecithin.

Vitamin C improves the absorption of iron as well as many other important nutrients for proper hair growth. Some symptoms of iron deficiency include hair loss and dizziness. Iron supplements should be used with caution, not more than 27mg per day, to insure that you do not overdose.

*********************************
Green Tea and Hair Loss
*********************************


Some studies have shown that Green Tea may influence blood concentrations of hormones in women linked to at least one form of genetic hair loss known as androgenic alopecia. In a study published in the journal Nutrition and Cancer in 1998, Japanese researchers found that drinking green tea may increase levels of the sex hormone binding globulin (SHBG) in women. Since this bio-chemical binds testosterone, the more SHBG present in a woman's body, at least theoretically, the less testosterone will be in her bloodstream. And that, say some experts, may block the chain of hormonal activity that initiates some forms of hair loss.
