About hair loss

Hair loss is a problem that affects many millions of men and women all over the globe. In an attempt to battle the problem, we spend a staggering amount of money to buy treatments like shampoos and scalp serums.

Nutrition plays a major role in preventing and treating hair loss. It should be the first point of defense, instead of spending money on lotions and potions.

There are a few micronutrient deficiencies that cause hair loss. A deficiency in the minerals Zinc and Iron being the most vital. Other nutrients that play a significant role in preventing hair loss are Biotin (Vit. B7), Vitamin C, and Vitamin D. Moringa contains all of the above, (except Vit. D, which is derived from fatty food like sunflower seed and egg yolk), in copious amounts!

Deficiency in Zinc

Hair loss is a common sign of a deficiency in Zinc. Such a deficiency causes the atrophy of hair follicles due to impaired DNA and protein synthesis. This in turn leads to excessive hair fall.  Moringa leaf is rich in this nutrient and therefore it plays a vital role in promoting hair growth and healing damaged hair follicles. Zinc also prevents the drying and clogging of the sebaceous glands. Zinc is used in almost all the body’s processes and it is essential for healthy skin and good immunity. Supplementing with zinc-rich Moringa will thus also help with acne and aging.

Iron is another mineral that plays an important role in hair loss. An iron deficiency causes anemia, which is a lack of red blood cells. These cells transport oxygen to the body and when there are too few of them, your body goes into survival mode and directs them to systems that keep you alive – like your organs – instead of non-essential things like hair follicles. Everyone knows that spinach is high in iron content, but moringa leaf actually contains 25 x more iron than Popeye’s favorite food!

All-natural hair loss treatment

In addition to the above, Moringa for hair loss offers other micronutrients that help to keep your scalp and hair healthy: It is rich in Vitamin B (especially B6 and Biotin), Vitamin C and Vitamin E. Vitamin C together with Vitamin E help improve blood circulation in the scalp. Vitamin C is essential in the production of collagen, which is an important part of hair structure. It is also needed for the absorption of iron.

Supplementing with the correct dose of Moringa in capsule, powder or juice extract form, can offer excellent results in treating hair loss. It is a natural, organic and safe way to ensure that your crowning glory stays where it should – on your head and not on your hairbrush!
