What lack of nutrition causes sudden hair loss

The most important vitamin B suppliers include nuts, oil seeds (especially pumpkin seeds), whole grain products, yeast flakes and legumes.

Since the B vitamins support different nerve functions, they are particularly recommended for stress-related hair loss.

Dietary supplements with the vitamin B complex (e.g. B-vitamin MIX) contain all B vitamins and promote hair health comprehensively.

Vitamin A cares for the hair follicles

The fat-soluble vitamin A is responsible for many processes in the human organism. Vitamin A deficiency can cause visual disturbances, dry skin and hair growth disorders.

Vitamin A is involved in the synthesis of fat in the hair follicles, so a vitamin A deficiency can easily lead to hair loss.

Vitamin A is only found in foods of animal origin. In plant-based food (e.g. carrots, spinach, broccoli, tomatoes or apricots), however, there is what is known as provitamin A (beta-carotene), which the organism can convert into vitamin A at any time and as required.

Remember: If the food is prepared with a small amount of fat, the body can absorb the beta-carotene more easily.

Compensate for vitamin deficiency - remedy hair loss

In the event of hair loss or suddenly sparse hair growth, it is therefore worthwhile to look out for a possible vitamin deficiency, to optimize the diet and, if necessary, to take high-quality food supplements in order to be optimally supplied with all vitamins.

Does your hair problem include attributed to a vitamin deficiency, you will quickly see results and you will soon have beautiful, full hair again.
