Hair loss is a devastating and stressful situation for men and women alike. It seems that society accepts men losing their hair, but women losing their hair does not seem acceptable, and that has forced women to hide their hair loss. It saddens me to see my friends and colleagues losing their hair and seem to accept it. 

Why does hair loss happen: for many reasons, genetics, hormonal, and nutrition deficiencies. This area I know something about and yet not enough, obviously because I can’t stop my own hair loss. We can all improve our diet and nutritional status, even probably registered dietitians/licensed nutritionists. So even though I do focus on eating a well-balanced nutrient-rich diet, maybe I am missing something. I understand how my patients feel I am looking for something that will help me, but my emphasis is science evidence base treatment. Teaching this to the public and our patients help them to decide what interventions can help them. 

We know poor nutrition, including yo-yo dieting and fad diets, can cause hair loss. Other health issues such as eating disorders, malnutrition, and undernutrition can also cause air loss. 

As many of my patients, colleagues, families, and friends know, I do not recommend products without first doing comprehensive research on the product and the possible side effects. Well, that is what I did, and found vitamins that address hair loss. This is a company that is committed to science and research. I reviewed the research and decided to use these products. I plan to keep you all posted on my progress. Let’s not forget to still remain focused on good nutrition. What does that mean? 

Focus on the healthiest nutrition approaches Mediterranean or Dash diet. Let’s make it simple plenty of varied, colorful vegetables, fresh fruit, lean protein from animals or plants, whole grains, carbohydrates, and fat from monounsaturated sources.

I will keep you posted on my use of Nutrafol. If you are interested in these products, please check them out here
