5 common fruits that help prevent baldness
If your nutritional intake is optimal, it can play a real role in keeping your hair and scalp in good condition. Some fruits are particularly good at providing nutrients to your hair follicles suggested by Dr. Bizrah, founder of Beyond Med Center in Kensington (Australia).
Big papaya contains 235 milligrams of vitamin C, more than twice as much as an orange. Vitamin C promotes the body's production of collagen. Dr. Bizrah says that collagen is not only the foundation for creating new hair, it also helps to keep the dermis - the middle layer of skin containing the roots of each hair - also strong and healthy. Besides, papaya is also rich in potassium, while potassium deficiency can lead to hair loss.
Most people know about "free radicals" - unstable atoms grow in the body and can damage cells, causing diseases and aging. It is also free radicals that can damage hair follicles, and older people are particularly susceptible. To combat these free radicals, the body needs antioxidants.
Pineapples are not only rich in nutrients such as vitamin C, manganese and vitamin B6, they are also rich in antioxidants called flavonoids and phenolic acids. Antioxidants found in pineapples also last longer than antioxidants in other foods, making them especially effective.
According to Dr. Bizrah, to maintain healthy hair, the scalp needs to have enough moisture. The scalp contains sebaceous glands, natural oil that lubricates hair fibers as they grow. Without this moisturizing sebum on the hair, the scalp will be affected. Peaches are rich in vitamins A and C, so it is an excellent natural moisturizer. Many people also use peach juice as a topical solution, applying it to the scalp to avoid hair loss.
Kiwi contains high levels of vitamin A, vitamin E, vitamin K and flavonoid antioxidants such as beta-carotene, lutein, and xanthin. Kiwi also contains vitamin C good for collagen production, as well as omega-3 fatty acids to provide moisture. More importantly for health, kiwi is also rich in minerals such as zinc, magnesium, and phosphorus. This help promotes adequate blood circulation in the scalp, thereby strengthening hair from the root.
Apple contains Procyanidin B-2, a compound that can support the growth of new hair. Apples contain vitamin A, B, and C needed to help maintain a healthy scalp and prevent dandruff. Apples also contain antioxidants and support cell regeneration. For healthy hair, there is definitely no harm in eating an apple every day.
