DIETETIC-NUTRITION TIPS for:
The hair, like the skin and nails, are constantly renewed and their metabolism and regeneration are very sensitive to nutritional deficits.
In fact, any vitamin, mineral or protein deficit can cause weakness, fragility and hair loss. Lack of iron or iron-deficiency anemia can cause it. A deficiency in iron, even without getting anemia, can deteriorate it and cause it to fall.
The hair is also composed of other minerals: magnesium, silicon, selenium, copper ... and to keep it healthy you have to guarantee the intake of these nutrients through the diet. It is also essential to maintain a good supply of proteins of high biological quality: eggs, milk, cheese, fish ..., not forgetting the fats of vegetable origin (nuts and olive oil) that avoid having dry and brittle hair. Linoleic acid (present sunflower and soybean oil) is essential to enjoy bright and healthy hair.
Nutritional deficiencies can contribute to hair loss by weakening its structure, causing breakage and slow regeneration. These problems with the hair that are caused by nutritional deficiencies can be corrected with a proper and balanced diet. The main elements that are involved are vitamin A, vitamin B, biotin, vitamin C, copper, iron, zinc, proteins, and water.
However, there are other causes of non-nutritional origin that can cause hair loss: nervousness, stress, environmental factors, dermatological problems, certain medications, seasonal changes (during the fall, for example, many people lose their hair more of normal), the use of certain hair products (shampoos, lotions), etc ...
The importance of Biotin and Folic Acid in our diet.
The association of biotin and folic acid> helps the metabolic activities of tissues that have rapidly multiplying cells, such as our hair, skin and nails.
Biotin has an important role in the health of the epidermis, hair and nails. For people who follow a healthy diet, Biotin deficiency is rare. In addition to absorbing it through meals, Biotin is generated by the bacteria in our intestines. However, in some cases, Biotin deficiency can cause hair loss.
Biotin is found in a wide variety of foods, such as:
The eggs, the liver, in the yeast bread and the cereals.
Folic Acid, also known as Folacin, is an important nutritional element that participates in the synthesis of DNA. It also participates in the metabolism of important amino acids and collaborates with vitamin B12 and Nicotinic Acid in various functional actions. Folic acid participates in cell multiplication and in the formation of red blood cells and white blood cells and in the synthesis of various neuromediators. The reference for daily absorption of folic acid is 400 micrograms for an average adult and we can find it in vegetables, orange juice, avocado, beets, broccoli, brewer's yeast, liver, wheat germ and in some enriched cereals.
