Weight loss and hair loss
Posted on 10th January 2019 at 14:38
The hair is made up of fast-growing cells. At any given time, there are close to 120,000 hair roots growing on a human scalp. This growth must be supported by protein and other essential nutrients. Low iron and calorie intake negatively impact hair follicles. Most people on a weight loss program tend to switch to vegetarian diets which have low calories. Most people limit their protein intake when on a weight loss program. While this might be useful in weight loss, it has negative implications on healthy hair. Since hair is not a vital organ in the body, the distribution of essential nutrients is prioritised to other organs. Sustained hair growth calls for a balanced diet in the right amounts to enable the nourishment of non-vital organs. As many people embark on New Year weight loss programmes then this post will be extra useful for them.
