Does Iron Affect Hair Growth?

Saturday, November 19th, 2011

Question:

I have heard that a diet that does not contain foods rich in iron can cause her loss.
Is it true? Does iron affect hair growth?

Answer:

Iron deficiency does affect hair growth.

If a diet doesn’t contain foods rich in iron and in sufficient quantities (or if the person is suffering from iron-deficiency anemia, which means the body cannot keep up with replacing iron that the body is using up), chances are a person will suffer from hair loss.
So, while iron supplements and getting Iran in excess of what the body requires will not promote the growth, low-level irons will in fact cause hair thinning.

Relation Between Calcium and Hair Loss

Sunday, July 17th, 2011

Question:

From what I know, the best way to get calcium is by eating foods that are rich in calcium. I’m not sure but maybe my hair loss is a result of calcium deficiency? I’m going to do blood tests to see if my hair loss is related to any specific mineral deficiencies.
What is the relation between calcium and hair loss?

Answer:

Minerals like Calcium are important in maintaining a healthy body. Calcium together with magnesium works in helping grow hair. A deficiency can ultimately cause the hair to fall out.

Calcium and magnesium imbalance is a common contributor to hair loss. But too much calcium in relation to the amount of magnesium in the body can also negatively affect the hair.
A balanced amount of these two minerals should be obtained by the body in order to prevent hair loss. Many foods have magnesium in them therefore it is rare to have a deficiency in magnesium.

To obtain more Calcium, try out strawberries, broccoli, green leafy vegetables.
