Are you Experienced?

Are there certain foods and/or supplements that have caused you, personally, to lose a significant amount hair over a relatively short period of time?

From personal experience, I recommend posters here NOT consume high amounts of cayenne pepper (450 mg./a day). It will accelerate your hair loss.

Any and all foods/supplements containing larger amounts of Vitamin A.


#3

high sugar foods, desserts etc

high sodium foods processed meats, soy sauce, potato chips, things like that

red meat in general,if u eat a lot in one day

excess animal protein, over 40-60 grams a day will really start to show detrimental effects over 100gms a day, and watch your hair go bye bye in the sink

my uncle(s), in his late fifties, overweight, hairy body, pitiful diet (colas, fried foods, fast foods, french fries)

has…drum roll please

an absolutely full head of hair with his teenage hairline. Hell, looking at pics of them when they were young, it almost looks as if they have more hair now.

Its greying, but its all there. Lotta body hair too.

Asiatics may see some EARLIER balding than what they did in the past due to less intake of green tea, soy, and rice sterols, but thats about it.

High glycemic index foods that make you insulin resistance will up the activity of the alpha five reductase enzymes located in the prostate and hair follicle’s outer root sheaths. This actually may have an effect according to some of the latest studies (convieniently posted by the member “dammitletmein” at HLT).

However, good hair genetics are good hair genetics, and some people aint gonna bald no matter what they eat.

Dont beat yourself up over losing hair. Its in your genes. You didn’t misbehave or something to make it go. Aint’ your fault. :stuck_out_tongue:

I have not, as of yet, seen a better explanation, other than diet, to explain the increase of MPB cases in Japan since War World II. I did read where some people attributed the increase to stress of an aggressive work environment. But these same people refuse to allow for the opposite to be true: namely that, but for this factor, Japanese men would have retained their hair.

I never did say its not genetic

you can have some guy with great hair eats crappy diet

however if you have MPB in your genes and then the DHT accumulates around your follicles and miniaturizes the blood vessels to the follicles, your diet is now critical as well as your supplements because you have an extremely reduced blood supply to the follicles and they are basically on life support

so your diet and supplements that are vitally needed for your dying follicles
has to be excellent with a lot of extra nutrients to make sure you get enough to your hair

the guy down the street with no MPB in his genes can eat a crappy diet and get away with it since he has no DHT killing his follicles and their blood supply

I am beginning to wonder if synthetic vitamins are safe, even at the recommended dosage, over an extended period of time.

If we take asians who have migrated to the West their hairloss has increased -dietary factors have certainly changed :

  1. increased animal Protein
  2. Increased sugars
  3. increased saturated fats

…and despite what an infamous poster here will tell you, hair vitamins (e.g. Maxi Hair) do not replace a good diet and exercise.

I would rather spend my money on an expensive slice of beef than a bottle of cheap synthetic magic hair pills that will just be urinated down the commode, unabsorbed.

I know that iron is good for hair.


#14

what makes you think the vitamins wont be absorbed, perhaps you are not getting sufficient minerals, or your body has poor absorbtion, if this is true, meat isnt going to help you

"We are often told, ‘A vitamin is a vitamin.’ But there is a big difference between synthetic and naturally derived vitamins. The discoverer of Vitamin C noticed this difference when testing his discovery. In 1930’s, Dr. Albert Szent Gyorgyi was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize in medicine for discovering Vitamin C.

A friend of his who was suffering from a debilitating disease was given Vitamin C and did not recover, he did recover when he consumed food that contained a high vitamin C content. Dr. Albert Szent Gyorgyi would spend the rest of his life trying to discover why naturally produced Vitamin C worked and man-made did not."

Additional iron…not for men though. Notice supplements geared towards men contain no iron. There’s a reason for that :wink:
