10 Superfoods to Eat if You’re Experiencing Hair Loss

We all know the benefits that certain foods can have on our health. Carrots can help improve overall eye health. The vitamin C in citrus fruits can strengthen the immune system. High-fiber foods like beans can help lower cholesterol. But did you know that there are also many superfoods for hair loss?

What Causes Hair Loss?

Hair loss can be caused by a number of reasons including stress, illness, a medical condition, medications and poor diet. But according to Dr. Angela Phipps, medical advisor to HairClub, the most common cause of hair loss is heredity. Combine that with aging, and you have a recipe for hair thinning and hair loss.

Another contributing factor to hair loss is a poor diet. Deficiencies in certain vitamins and minerals can have a negative impact on hair health since many of these nutrients can affect the various stages of hair growth and hair loss.

Foods to Prevent Hair Loss

Dr. Phipps says it’s possible to stimulate hair growth by adding specific superfoods to your diet.

So, what is a superfood? Superfood is a term used to describe foods that have a high nutrient density and therefore are beneficial to a person’s health. These foods typically have a high number of vitamins, minerals and antioxidants that may help prevent certain diseases. Salmon, broccoli, prunes, spinach and avocados are just some examples of superfoods.

Check out these 10 foods for hair loss that may help promote hair growth and prevent thinning.

Sweet potatoes – Whether you prefer them whole and baked or cut up in fry shape, sweet potatoes have beta carotene that helps promote a healthy scalp, prevents hair thinning and aids cell growth.

Prunes – An iron deficiency may be a culprit for hair loss. Boost your iron levels with these tasty fruits that can help with thinning as well as dry or discolored hair.

Nuts and seeds – With so many kinds to choose from, you can’t go wrong. Nuts are full of protein, omega-3 fatty acids, biotin, and healthy fats, all of which can stimulate hair growth and prevent hair loss.

Shrimp – High in B12, iron and zinc, shrimp can help promote healthy hair growth and prevent hair thinning and hair loss.

Oysters – Sometimes hair loss can be a result of low zinc levels, luckily, oysters are high in zinc as well as iron, omega fatty acids and calcium.

Spinach – This versatile leafy green can be added to smoothies, salads or sandwiches. It’s high in iron, folate, vitamin A and vitamin C, all of which are essential to hair growth.

Eggs – High in protein and biotin, eggs are packed with good-for-your-hair nutrients that keep hair follicles strong and in turn promote healthy hair growth.

Avocados – The vitamin E in avocados, a powerful antioxidant, offers a number of reparative and healing properties which can help prevent hair loss and promote healthy hair growth.

Salmon – Salmon and other fatty fish like sardines, mackerel, and tuna are high in omega-3 fatty acids which are crucial for healthy hair. These nutrients can also help reduce hair loss and improve hair density.

Oats – Full of nutrients like zinc, iron, fiber, omega-6 fatty acids and B-vitamins, oats can help promote hair growth by strengthening and stimulating hair follicles.
