Understand Your Strands: Vitamin Deficiencies
understanding your strands: vitamin deficiencies
Those suffering from thinning hair or loss may have a difficult time figuring out the cause. Many people have no answers as to why their hair is thinning. Wouldn’t it be great if you could get to the root cause of your hair loss?
Many times they are told it is simply genetic. While this may be a contributing factor, there can also be underlying causes, like vitamin deficiencies, that may be the reason for your hair loss. Often times, these specific vitamin deficiencies can be corrected to stop hair shedding. Here at HPIHair, we are now offering our AlopeciaDX blood test to target specific causes for your hair loss.
Certain vitamin deficiencies are quite common in today’s population. The American diet and lack of daily sunlight can take a toll on our overall health and vitamin levels. Specific vitamin deficiencies have been linked to weakened hair strands and hair loss.
Vitamins are needed within the cell process to grow new hair. If hair shedding is occurring and your vitamin levels are low, new hair growth is hindered. If the cells are deficient in vitamins they use an alternative source, which is often testosterone. Testosterone is converted to dihydrotesterone (DHT), which we know plays a vital role in hair loss. Without optimal vitamin levels, your hair will shed and growth will be inhibited.
Here at HPIHair Partners, we are now offering our AlopeciaDX blood test to diagnose and help determine the specific causes for your hair loss.
