Recently when I noticed fallen hair’s on my sweater, I got worried thinking maybe I’m going bald. Though, after doing some research I found that in general humans lose 50-100 hair every day.
I was assured I’m not going bald, everything is normal. But with the research, I also found out how our diet can affect our baldness.
I think no one want’s to go bald, especially if you are a man. You know your chances of getting laid will drop by 50% if a girl sees a bald patch on your head. That’s why today, I’m going to tell about the food that prevents baldness. But before that let’s learn something new.
What is the main cause of baldness?
Though, baldness can occur because of several reasons such as family condition, stress and high level of mercury. But everyone knows about it. What you don’t know is that your daily consumption of iron can also cause the effect of baldness.
After 40 years of research, it was found that deficiency of iron can cause you to go bald.
In the Journal of the American Academy of Dermatology, the study author’s Wilma Fowler Bergfeld, MD; and Ellen Calogeras, RD, MPH, and Leonid Benjamin Trost concluded, “We believe that treatment for hair loss is enhanced when iron deficiency with or without anemia is prevented.”
Luckily, there are plenty of food items available that can help your body to get enough iron and prevent hair loss. Some of the food items that prevent baldness are:
Another great reason to enjoy this delicious nut. A single one cup almonds contain 5.3 mg of iron, altogether it will also offer you the 30g of protein, which I consider as a very good deal.
