Hair loss. Is there anything that yells AGE louder than a receding hair line? May wrinkles, but it is probably a close tie. The single most common cause of hair loss is genetics. You can’t change your genes, but you may be able to improve or slow your hair loss.
If your body is missing important vitamins and other compounds, your hair may fall out, look dull, or get brittle.
Making changes to your diet can help you to slow or even stop non-genetically caused hair loss. Plus, you will feel and look better, so it is a win-win proposition.
Foods rich in iron may help you if you are iron deficient. Word of warning for men and menopausal women. Don’t rush out and add a lot of iron to your diet. Have your doctors check your iron levels first.
Good sources of iron include Popeye’s favorite food, spinach. Spinach is full of other great minerals and vitamins that help keep hair follicles healthy. Lean beef is another terrific way to add iron to your diet.
