Question: ok thanks for your answer to my last question but you tell me which vitamin mineral i loss already . iron . biotin .zinc .. which mineral help me reduce hair loss .??
Answer: Hi, Vicky. There are many vitamins and minerals that can promote healthy hair, however none will prevent hair loss unless your shedding is due to a nutritional imbalance. Taking too large a dose of some can even cause extra shedding so it is important to get the balance right.
This is why Belgravia’s dietary supplements, Hair Vitalics, are designed for use alongside a hair loss treatment course; they can help to improve the condition of the hair, but they do not treat hair loss conditions.
Researchers have noted that zinc deficiencies may play a part in autoimmune hair loss – Alopecia Areata, Alopecia Totalis and, the condition we have suggested you may be experiencing from your previous information, Alopecia Universalis – but this remains just one theory.
As before, given you have said that you are experiencing hair loss from your body as well as your scalp, it is unlikely to be a dietary matter and we really do recommend you speak to your doctor about this. You can also ask them if it is safe for you to increase your zinc levels and, if so, how much you should be taking per day based on your overall health and medical profile.
