Dr. Yadav explains the role of diet in hair and scalp health - featured in a recent article on #hairloss & #nutrition.
Dietary deficiencies, poor health and medical imbalance (such as thyroid disorders) are a common cause of hair loss and breakage. Hair follicles derive nutrition from the individual's blood. Thus an overall improvement in nutrition and health are required.
Further the scalp must be kept clean and treatment of scalp skin disorders like dandruff, which impairs circulation, help improve hair quality as well.
Intake of a balanced diet with adequate protein and good fats (eggs, nuts, seeds, fish, coconut oil) help in the synthesis of keratin (the main protein forming hair)
and vitamins like Vitamin B especially Biotin, B1, B2, B5, B6, Folic Acid and B12 & Vitamins ACDE.
Other essentials are Seleniun, Zinc & Calcium to help maintain healthy hair.
