How You Can Defeat Hair Loss with Your Diet

Your diet is a very powerful thing and can have a severe impact on your body. While many people know that the right diet can help them look better and feel better—it can have even more impact than many people think. Your diet can actually help you defeat hair loss.

More than 80% of men today will struggle with hair loss or thinning hair—particularly as they age. This hair loss can have emotional and psychological ramifications and can cause anyone to struggle with their confidence. If you are looking for ways that you can defeat hair loss, or at least slow down the progression of hair loss, you may want to consider adding some powerful superfoods to your diet.

Studies have found that your hair follicles can be stimulated by a diet filled with biotin, iron, zinc, vitamin C and B vitamins. This can help give your hair follicles what they need to start growing healthier looking hair, even in areas where you may have thought hair growth was impossible.

Looking for some specific examples? Here are some healthy foods that are rich in essential nutrients that can stimulate hair growth and leave you looking and feeling our best:

  • Nuts 
  • Oysters
  • Sweet Potatoes (not fried)
  • Shrimp
  • Spinach
  • Eggs
  • Carrots
  • Prunes
  • Oats 
  • Green Peas

It would help if you also considered adding more foods that are filled with “good fats” into your diet. They can help with your skin and hair. Foods that are filled with omega 3s include protein-filled options like baked or grilled shrimp. Fruits and veggies are always an excellent addition to any healthy diet, and if you are planning on adding fruit to your hair loss diet, then consider dark berries. Strawberries, blueberries, and blackberries are filled with antioxidants and plenty of vitamins that make them a great beauty food.
