Hair loss is a natural process that affects men especially. Usually this is an age-related disorder, when new hair follicles do not give hair. Also, alopecia, and this is how pathological hair loss is called, can be triggered by a lack of vitamins and trace elements in the body. Then, to correct the situation, vitamins will be required to help with hair loss in men.
What vitamins are missing
The problem of severe hair loss in men often leads to baldness. There are a number of reasons for this:
- an unbalanced diet that does not provide the body with a sufficient amount of vitamins and minerals;
- regular stressful situations;
- disruptions in the hormonal system;
- improper work of the sebaceous glands, provoking the occurrence of dandruff;
- predisposition to baldness at the genetic level.
Most frequently, it is the lack of active substances in the body that is the cause of hair defects. Hair becomes thinner, dull and begins to fall out. Hair follicles do not receive enough nutrients from food, which are delivered through the bloodstream from the stomach.
If the diet is not varied, nutrient deficiencies will inevitably arise. The body simply will not receive the required set, which includes:
- vitamins of groups B, E, C, A;
- zinc, which activates the production of keratin;
- taurine, which accelerates the restoration of connective tissue around the hair follicles;
- catechins, which help to improve the process of transporting trace elements to the hair follicles.
With a lack of these substances in the body, the amount of hair on the head will begin to decrease. To prevent this, you should start taking nutrients. For this, vitamin complexes or injections are used, which include all the necessary vitamins and trace elements for baldness.
Special vitamin complexes that not only improve the quality of hair and growth processes, but also affect other processes in the body, can be purchased at any pharmacy. When buying, you need to check that all of the above vitamins and substances that improve hair growth and their quality are declared in the composition.
Also, among the means popular among balding men are dietary supplements (bioactive additives). They can be both effective and not lead to any result. In the most difficult cases, dietary supplements can harm the body. To choose the best drug, you should consult a trichologist who will prescribe the necessary complex.
