Suffering from Hair-Fall ?? Here are some NUTRITION TIPS that can help you out.. !!
Protein consumption in balance, neither very high nor very low. Protein grows the hair and gives it strength, therefore the consumption should be adequate, but it should not be so much that the hair follicle and the body becomes so acidic so as to promote hair fall.
For vegetarians- A diet which is vegetarian is called a low acid diet and usually does not lead to an acid build up. This is because plant proteins are more alkaline than animal proteins and also the protein in a dal usually stays within the range of 20 to 35%, which is mild.The sources of protein can be sprouts, tofu also called soya paneer, channa, both black and white, lobhia, green peas, green choliya etc. Dairy is also a source of proteins which is an animal product but more acceptable to vegetarians.
For non vegetarians the protein sources can be poultry, meat and fish. One aspect which non vegetarians must keep a watch on is the fact that non vegetarian protein sources are almost 100 % protein, therefore it is far easier to over consume the protein in a non vegetarian diet. To prevent an acid build up, non vegetarians must consume a lot of alkaline food like vegetable juices, salads, vegetable soups, fruits.
Fruits - all fruits are very rich in B group of vitamins and vitamin C. Both these groups are very important for the adequate growth of the hair shaft and roots. Therefore the diet must have fruits like oranges, pomegranate, apple, pineapple, guava, banana, grapes etc. The consumption should be of 2 fruits daily.
Herbs like Triphala (a mix of 3 herbs – harar, behar and amla) and Amla juice, Tulsi, Lemon, are very good for detoxifying the liver and clearing the toxins.
Nuts provide the essential fatty acids which is important n hair growth, therefore a daily dose of some nuts and oil seeds should be taken. Depending upon the weather, one can take Flaxseed, Olives, Almond, Walnuts, Pistachio, Sunflower seeds, Sesame seeds.
Vegetable juices like Carrot, Beetroot, Pumpkin, Lauki, Mint, Spinach, Ginger, Celery, Aloe-vera can be mixed in different amounts to create a health cocktail.
