Eating more of these five fruits can stop you from becoming bald, according to an expert in hair loss.
Dr. Bashar Bizrah claims that apples can help prevent dandruff, and says evidence is beginning to show that peaches can stop thinning hair.
Dr. Bizrah, founder of the Beyond Med Center clinic in Kensington, said: & # 39; The most common cause of hair loss, male or female baldness, is genetically determined.
& # 39; But other types of hair loss and hair loss, such as those caused by an unhealthy scalp, are much more preventable.
& # 39; If your nutritional intake is optimal, it can play a real role in keeping your hair and scalp in good condition.
& # 39; And certain fruits are particularly good at providing this food net for your hair follicles. & # 39; Here Dr. reveals Bizrah some important fruits that can help.
Papaya is rich in vitamin C – what the body needs to make collagen
Dr. Bizrah said: & # 39; Collagen is the most abundant protein in your body.
& # 39; And it is not only one of the building blocks for creating new hair, it also helps preserve the dermis – the middle layer of your skin that contains the root of each individual hair – also strong and healthy.
& # 39; Your body makes collagen by combining certain amino acids, usually found in foods such as beef, chicken, fish, beans, eggs, and dairy products.
& # 39; But this process also requires vitamin C as a key ingredient.
& # 39; And papaya is rich in vitamin C – with one large papaya filled with 235 milligrams of vitamin C, which is more than twice as much as one orange.
& # 39; Papaya & # 39; s are also rich in potassium, a lack of which has been associated with hair loss. & # 39;
Pineapple is rich in antioxidants, which & # 39; free radicals & # 39; combat that can damage the hair follicles
Dr. Bizrah said: & # 39; Most people are aware of & # 39; free radicals & # 39; – unstable atoms that develop in the body and can damage cells and cause disease and aging.
& # 39; What you may not realize is that free radicals can also damage the hair follicles, especially in older adults.
& # 39; To combat these free radicals, your body needs antioxidants.
# And pineapple is not only rich in nutrients such as vitamin C, manganese and vitamin B6, they are also bursting with antioxidants, flavonoids and phenolic acids.
& # 39; The antioxidants in pineapples also have a longer shelf life than those in other foods, making them particularly effective. & # 39;
There is no scientific evidence for peaches, but Bashar Bizrah said that many use them as a topical solution, & apply it to the scalp believing that hair loss will also ward off & # 39;
Dr. Bizrah said: & # 39; To maintain a healthy head of hair, it is essential that the scalp has enough moisture.
& # 39; Your scalp contains oil glands that produce sebum, a natural oil that lubricates the hair strand as it grows.
& # 39; If there is not enough of this moisturizing sebum on your hair, your scalp will suffer.
& # 39; Peaches can combat this because they are rich in vitamins A and C, so they are a great natural moisturizer.
& # 39; Although scientific evidence is lacking, many people also use peach juice as a topical solution, which it applies to the scalp in the belief that hair loss will also ward off. & # 39;
Kiwi & # 39; s are also rich in copper, which could help the hair maintain its natural color and stop gray hair, Dr. Dr. Kiwi claims. Bizrah
According to the scientists, from the Tsukuba Research Laboratory in Tsukuba, Japan, apples contain procyanidin B-2, a compound that helps promote the growth of new hair
WHAT ARE THE CAUSES OF HAIR LOSS?
It is perfectly normal for people to lose small amounts of hair while it replenishes itself and on average people can lose between 50 and 100 hairs a day.
However, if people lose entire hair patches or large amounts of them, this can be more worrying and possibly a sign of something serious.
Pattern baldness is a common cause of hair loss as people age. At least half of men over 50 lose part of their hair through the aging process alone, according to the British Association of Dermatologists.
Women can also lose their hair as they age.
Others, more with regard to causes of hair loss, include stress, cancer treatment such as chemotherapy or radiotherapy, weight loss or an iron deficiency.
However, most hair loss is temporary and is expected to grow back.
Specific medical conditions that cause the hair to fall out are alopecia, a disorder of the immune system; a slow or overactive thyroid gland; the skin condition lichen planus or Hodgkin lymphoma, a form of cancer.
People should visit their doctor if their hair starts to fall out in lumps, falls suddenly, if their scalp itches or burns and if hair loss causes them severe stress.
Dr. Bizrah said: & # 39; Kiwi & # 39; s contain good amounts of vitamin A, vitamin E, vitamin K and flavonoid antioxidants such as beta carotene, lutein and xanthine.
& # 39; Again, the fruit contains a lot of vitamin C, which is good for producing collagen, as well as omega-3 fatty acids that provide moisture.
& # 39; More importantly for health health, kiwi & # 39; s are also rich in minerals such as zinc, magnesium and phosphorus.
& # 39; These help promote good blood circulation in the scalp, strengthening the hair from their roots.
& # 39; Kiwi & # 39; s are also rich in copper, which could help the hair retain its natural color and stop gray hair. & # 39;
Dr. Bizrah said: & # 39; Apples contain vitamins A, B and C, all of which are vital when it comes to maintaining a healthy scalp and preventing dandruff.
& # 39; They are also packed with antioxidants to keep those free radicals away and promote cell renewal.
& # 39; Meanwhile, there has also been scientific research conducted by a Japanese team in 2002, looking at how apple extract could promote hair growth.
& # 39; According to the scientists, from Tsukuba Research Laboratory in Tsukuba, Japan, apples contain procyanidin B-2, a compound that helps promote the growth of new hair.
& # 39; That investigation remains controversial and there is a need for further evidence. But when it comes to healthy hair, it certainly doesn't hurt to eat an apple a day. & # 39;
