How Your Diet Can Influence Hair Loss

September 24, 2018

If you’ve ever noticed an excessive amount of shedding, it could be directly related to your diet. Eating some of these nutrient-packed foods may help prevent thinning hair.

  • Iron deficiencies are linked to hair loss. Experts recommend getting 18 mg of iron a day to prevent hair thinning. Tofu and Flaxseeds are excellent vegan sources of iron. Flaxseeds also contain essential fatty acids that help support scalp health and can stimulate hair growth.
  • Take a Vitamin B supplement. Vitamin B12 maintains a healthy nervous system, but it's also good for your hair. A woman needs 2.4 micrograms a day.  Leafy greens are also a great source of biotin, a water-soluble B vitamin, such as Swiss Chard, spinach and broccoli.
  • Also make sure you’re getting selenium, which is an important mineral for maintaining hair health. While it is found in sea food, our vegan readers can turn to Brazil nuts for it.

While a balanced diet may help stop thinning hair, seeing a doctor to get a professional opinion is advised to ensure that nothing more serious is going on. Stress and certain medications can also lead to hair loss.
