Vegans and hair loss

Acoording to this article vegan diet helps preventing male hair loss.

 

Also, from the brief research I’ve done on male pattern hair loss, I’ve read that calcium, iron, and silica are incredibly helpful for preventing hair loss. You can find those vitamins in leafy green vegetables (kale, spinach, chard, etc), oats, cherries, concord grapes, and sea vegetables.

And, actually, to give a totally opposite viewpoint, I have read that diets high in fat and specifically, animal fat, lead to increased testosterone and a higher chance of developing male pattern baldness. There was a study done on Japanese men (by Aderans Company Limited) that found that prior to WWII, male pattern baldness was rare, and then afterwards it became much more regular. The significant change was that their diet changed from one rich in rice and vegetables with occasional fish to one full of meat and dairy. 

Therefore, eating a low-fat, plant-based diet that is well-balanced and full of dark, leafy greens, sea vegetables, beans, whole grains, fruits, and nuts/seeds will actually help to prevent hair loss. 

Here are some foods that will help to keep your hair thick and full:

  • asparagus
  • black beans
  • broccoli
  • brown rice
  • Brussel’s sprouts
  • cauliflower
  • cherries
  • chickpeas
  • Concord grapes
  • kale
  • lentils
  • lima beans
  • oats
  • peas
  • soybeans
  • spinach
  • sunflower seeds
  • walnuts
  •  

    I hope this is true 🙂
