Hair Loss Clinic
To add to this, you have roughly 120,000 hairs growing on your scalp at any given time, all of which need to be supported. However, what may be the most challenging part of
sustaining hair growth is this: hair is not a vital organ or tissue, and this
means your body will never prioritize its nutritional needs. Due to its expendable nature, an imbalance within your body will often show up first in your hair.
Hair and scalp problems can arise from either a deficiency or an excess of nutrients in your diet, and some cases nutrition alone can be the cause of hair loss. However, what many people consider to be a ‘healthy diet’ doesn’t include all of the elements needed for optimum hair growth, health and appearance. These include diets that consist of mainly of fruits, vegetables and salads, with only minimal amounts of protein and calories.
Or, on the other end of the spectrum, consuming only proteins and fats, with little or no carbohydrates, in an Atkins-type diet. Your hair cells, as well as the cells throughout your body, need a balanced diet of proteins, complex carbohydrates, vitamins and minerals to function at their best.
