Hair Loss Problem Due To Vitamin Deficiency


By Dr. Mital John  [ 762 Words ]

Zinc, iron, B vitamins, essential fatty acids, amino acids and other nutrients are responsible for hair growth. If these deficiencies occur, for whatever reason, it is likely hair loss. These abnormalities can result from many of the problems mentioned in this article, as well as an inadequate diet.

However, there are other cases where hair loss can be a sign of a serious medical problem. This is known as temporary hair loss, because genes do not determine the loss. One of the main causes of hair loss is temporary vitamin deficiency. Hair follicles require certain vitamins to carry out its function of constant regeneration and growth. If follicles remain deprived of these vitamins they will not be able to perform their normal operation and can result in hair loss.

Most of the time due to poor eating habits or disturbed metabolism we happen to be deficient in these vitamins. So, a change in eating habits or food intake is necessary to ensure adequate intake of vitamins needed for hair to prevent hair loss.

Vital Vitamins to Prevent Hair Loss:
There are several vitamins that are extremely important to maintain a healthy head of hair. Hair loss can be caused by a vitamin deficiency in any of these nutrients. All that is necessary to reverse the temporary hair loss is to follow a good diet!

Vitamin A is a vitamin that promotes healthy growth of both cells and tissues in various parts of the body, including cells of the scalp and hair. A deficiency of vitamin A could lead to hair loss and dandruff, especially if the deficiency occurs for an extended period of time. For vitamin A you need, make sure to consume lots of leafy vegetables, colorful fruits, liver, eggs and fish oil.

Hair loss can be caused by a vitamin deficiency in one or more of three B vitamins These three B vitamins (specifically folic acid, vitamin B6 and vitamin B12) are important for the creation of red blood cells and hemoglobin. Hemoglobin carries oxygen to the tissues, including hair cells. A vitamin deficiency could cause hair loss, due to the resulting reduced blood and oxygen to the hair. To get your B vitamins, lots of eating chicken, fish, whole grains, sugar and orange juice.

The vitamin biotin could cause hair loss. Although biotin deficiency is rare, has been observed in some cases. Biotin can be found in select foods, and is also produced by bacteria in the gut good. Most people who eat a healthy diet never experience hair loss as a result of vitamin deficiency. However, if this does occur, vitamin supplements can be taken.

What Else?
Other vitamins are important for growth and maintenance of hair. These vitamins include zinc, iron, vitamin C and copper. If you do not receive an adequate amount of these vitamins, make sure to look for food sources or begin taking supplements.

High doses of vitamin A can also result in temporary loss of hair:
Iron deficiency may be another cause of hair loss. Young women often have low iron due to changes in your body and your menstrual cycles. Some people do not consume enough iron in their diets or have an inability to properly absorb iron. A doctor can test your blood for iron levels and can treat this by recommending iron pills as part of their vitamin and mineral regiment.

Insufficient protein in your diet can result in malnutrition, which can affect hair loss. If you are on a low protein diet is that it may be the culprit. Your body will have the protein from your hair, forcing your hair into resting phase. Hair loss then will occur two or more months later. This is not permanent hair loss and can be reversed with a healthy diet with protein.

Biotin
For people who eat a healthy diet, biotin deficiency is rare. As well as being biotin select food sources, biotin is also manufactured in our intestines by gut bacteria. In rare cases, however, biotin deficiency can cause hair loss. Both patients had severe loss of hair. These patients, due to his medical condition, not manufacture biotin in their gut and consumed no biotin orally or parent rally. Daily supplementation of biotin resulted in the gradual re-growth of healthy hair.

If you are experiencing deficiency of vitamins you should incorporate food items in their diet to ensure adequate intake of these vitamins.
