  • 1. ======================================================= Revealed! quot;The Secrets to Preventing and Stopping Hair Lossquot; Lesson 1: The best start to preventing hair loss is understanding the basics of hair: what it is, how it grows, what system malfunctions can cause it to stop growing. And this e-course will cover the bases for you. Hair is the fastest growing tissue of the body, made up of proteins called keratins. Every strand of hair is made up of three layers: the inner layer or medulla (only present in thick hairs); the middle layer or cortex, which determines the strength, texture, and color of hair; and the cuticle, which protects the cortex. Hair grows from roots, which are enclosed in follicles. Below this is a layer of skin called the dermal papilla, which is fed by the bloodstream carrying nourishment vital to the growth of hair. Only the roots of hair are actually alive, while the visible part of hair is dead tissue, and therefore unable to heal itself. It is vital then to take care of the scalp and body in order to perpetuate hair growth and maintenance. Reportedly only bone marrow grows faster in our body than hair does. The average scalp contains 100,000- 150,000 hair follicles and hairs, with 90% growing and 10% resting at any given time. Hair actually grows in three stages: anagen, catagen, and telogen. The anagen phase is the phase where hair is actively growing, and of course this phase is longer for follicles in the scalp than anywhere else on your body, and lasts longer for women than men. It is natural for follicles to atrophy and hair to fall out, and this is called the catagen phase. This phase is only temporary, and eventually the follicle enters the telogen phase where it is resting. These are the 10% at rest mentioned above. Normal anagen phases last approximately five years, with catagen phases lasting about three weeks, and telogen phases lasting approximately 12 weeks. As you see it is natural to lose some hair. Natural hair loss is considered to be in the range of 100 hairs per day. It is not apparent to most people that hair is actually being lost until more than 50% of a person's hair is actually lost... In tomorrow's continuation of this e-course, we will begin to cover the causes of the quot;unnatural hair lossquot; which leads to thinning hair and baldness. This section will give you the basis for understanding how to prevent and stop hair loss. Lesson 2: Understanding Androgenetic Alopecia
  • 2. Androgenetic Alopecia is the medical name for the most common type of hair loss. It is more commonly known as pattern baldness. Pattern Baldness can affect both men and women although men experience a much greater degree of loss. Male Pattern Baldness In men the pattern of loss usually starts with a receding hairline which then advances to thinnng at the top of the head. Several baldness patterns are commonly recognized and classified. These classifications are based on the degree of hair thinning and the affected areas of the scalp. About 35 million men in the United States experience hair loss as a result of male pattern baldness. Male pattern baldness affects 50-80% of Caucasian men. African Americans and other races have a slightly lower incidence male pattern baldness. Pattern Baldness in men begins anytime after onset of puberty. Female Pattern Baldness In women pattern baldness appears as diffuse hair loss occurring over most of the scalp. For women pattern baldness or androgenetic alopecia occurs in 20-40% of the general female population. Hair loss in women is usually different than in men. Women will very rarely get bald spots. The hair loss is more diffuse. It is usually an overall thinning effect. This can make hair-styling rather challenging. Development of Pattern Baldness Androgenetic Alopecia or Pattern Baldness is caused by DHT. Due to the genetic predisposition for hair loss, the hair follicles have many receptors for DHT. Pattern Baldness develops as the hair follicle shrinks and spends less time in the active growth phase. This means the hair is shed faster than before. So new hair must come in, but as hair follicle shrinks the newer hair becomes thinner and thinner. Eventually those areas may have only a very thin layer of hair (peach fuss) or nothing at all. In tomorrow's lesson we will demystify the role of DHT in hair loss and will begin explaining other factors that can also affect the degree of hair loss you may personally experience. Lesson 3: Understanding the DHT Factor The most widely accepted theory of what causes Androgenetic Alopecia is the DHT factor. DHT is produced when the enzyme
  • 3. 5 alpha reductase combines with testosterone. DHT then attaches it self to the hair follicle eventually causing it to stop producing hair. Picture a big boulder on your chest that will not let you stand up and it barely allows you to breath. It will make it nearly impossible for you to eat or do anything else. You may hold on for a while, but eventually you will die. This is what DHT does to your hair follicles. It deprives them of food and oxygen. As the hair follicle weakens, the hair it produces will get thinner and thinner. Eventually, the hair follicle dies and stops producing hair altogether. When enough hair follicles die is when you begin to notice the thinning of your hair and even balding areas. While we all produce DHT, there does exist an inherited genetic trait (that can come from either side of the family--mother or father's side), that will make some of us much more susceptible to DHT. Back to our analogy, when you inherit the genetic trait, even a small or medium size rock would cause you to die. In addition to this DHT factor there are other secondary factors that may also contribute to the hair loss. While they do not cause pattern baldness, they do affect how susceptible (weak) the hair follicle is to the effects of DHT. By being aware of these additional factors, we can increase our ability to fight DHT and increase our chances of preventing and halting hair loss through the blocking of DHT. In tomorrow's lesson we will cover the additional factor that can make your hair more susceptible to DHT and its devastating effects. Lesson 4: As we mentioned in Lesson 3, in addition to the DHT factor there are other secondary factors that may also contribute to the hair loss. While they do not cause pattern baldness, they do affect how susceptible (weak) the hair follicle is to the effects of DHT. By being aware of these additional factors, we can increase our ability to fight DHT and increase our chances of preventing and halting hair loss through the blocking of DHT. Secondary Factors Excessive Sebum The accumulation of sebum in the scalp is believed to block hair follicles and contribute to hair loss. Recently, a group of Japanese researchers reported a correlation between excessive sebum in the scalp
  • 4. and hair loss. Excessive sebum often accompanying thinning hair is attributed to an enlargement of the sebaceous gland. They believe excessive sebum causes a high level of 5-alpha reductase which is then converted to DHT and also to pore clogging which would lead to malnutrition of the hair root. Cholesterol Accumulation Cholesterol which has been known to produce the enzyme 5 alpha reductase can also accumulate in the skin and scalp. When this cholesterol accumulation comes in contact with sunlight it produces the enzyme 5 alpha reductase directly in the scalp. Since the hair follicles contain testosterone, DHT is then produced in the skin and on the scalp. Since the ultimate goal is to block DHT from reaching the hair follicles, it is very important to keep cholesterol from accumulating in the scalp. Poor Circulation The lack of good blood circulation to the scalp may contribute to hair loss. When the hair root is well supplied with blood it is stronger and less susceptible to the shrinking effects caused by DHT. Good blood flow strengthens and rejuvenates the small blood vessels in the scalp. Stronger blood vessels Increases the longevity of the hair follicles specially in thinning areas and encourages hair growth. Aging There is evidence that the production of the enzyme 5 alpha reductase is triggered by age. Many scientist believe that the free radical damage caused by our continuous exposure to pollutants, stress, and various stimuli is what accelerates the aging process in many of us. This aging process is what triggers the beginnings of hair loss. If we can keep our bodies from aging prematurely, then we can at least delay hair loss. Daily Stress While it is widely accepted that chemical treatments, pollution, hair-styling products, etc. DO NOT cause hair loss (Androgenetic Alopecia), they can dry and weaken all the hair increasing breakage and making the hair loss seem worse. Poor Nutrition--Lack of Essential Vitamins It is important that you have a good nutritional base not only to prevent hair loss, but for your overall health. There are certain vitamins and minerals that are indispensable for hair health. Some of these vitamins and minerals are easy to get from everyday foods and some are not. For those that are not easily obtained, there are a variety of supplements that can help you achieve the correct nutritional
  • 5. Lesson 7: Sebum and Cholesterol Cleansers As we established in the hair loss causes section of this e-course, Sebum and Cholesterol build-up can clog the hair follicles leading to malnutrition of the hair root and an increase production of DHT. Like wise, excess cholesterol in the scalp can lead to an increase in the enzyme 5-alpha-reductase which is then converted to DHT. This is why when fighting hair loss it is imperative to keep the scalp clean and free of sebum and cholesterol build-up. The ingredients and products in this e-mail course are well known for their ability to deep cleanse the scalp and keeping it healthy. Below you will find the best ingredients/products to keep the scalp free from sebum and cholesterol build-up. Jojoba Oil Jojoba oil emulsifies and removes sebum from the scalp, which can cause thinning hair and baldness. Jojoba Oil penetrates the layers of waxy sebum and removes them without chemicals or harsh detergents, thus promoting growth of thicker, healthier hair. Olive Oil Olive oil has been used for many years in the prevention of hair loss. Since olive oil has the ability to reduce cholesterol, it is able to reduce its accumulation in the scalp. Since it reduces cholesterol it also inhibits the production of the enzyme 5 alpha reductase and therefore inhibits the production of DHT. Helps keep the scalp clean and healthy. Olive Oil improves scalp condition and adds shine and body to hair. HairEver makes a wonderful shampoo and conditioner called OLIVA. The shampoo and conditioner contain both Olive oil and Aloe Vera. Both of these ingredients are essential for a healthy scalp and hair. You can buy the HairEver Oliva Shampoo Here: Product Catalog Aloe-Vera Aloe vera is a very versatile product. Aside from it's well known moisturizing effects, it contains many of the products that seem to be effective in fighting hair loss. Like biotin, b-vitamins, zinc and even inositil. It also has anti-bacterial
  • 6. properties that help keep the scalp healthy, controlling the bodies immune response which we know can have adverse effects on hair growth. In addition the moisturizing qualities when applied to the scalp increase the blood circulation to the hair follicle. The Oliva HairEver Shampoo and Conditioner and the Jason-Thin-to-Thick Shampoo and Conditioner contain Aloe Vera. You can buy either shampoo here: Product Catalog Tar and Hemp Oil are two other ingredients that are great for cleaning the scalp and removing excess sebum. You can read more about them here: Tar and Hemp Oil In the next section of this e-course we will cover the importance of having good blood circulation to the hair root to prevent damage and promote growth. Lesson #8: Promote Blood Circulation and Hair Growth Lack of oxygen and blood flow to the scalp contribute to hair loss by weakening the hair follicle and making it more susceptible to the effects of DHT. Good Blood flow is essential to the nourishment and growth of hair follicles. Again when the hair root is well supplied with blood it is able to better withstand the quot;minimizationquot; effects of DHT. For over 5000 years Chinese herbalist have maintained that as long as there is good blood supply to the scalp, hair loss can be prevented. The products presented in this part of the e-course help prevent or stop hair loss by helping to increase blood flow to even the smallest capillaries supplying the hair follicles. They also help to make blood circulation throughout the scalp more efficient. Gotu Kola Offers many health benefits. It is known as a powerful quot;brain and memoryquot; enhancer. Regarding hair loss, Gotu Kola helps increase circulation and blood flow to the scalp. When enough blood reaches the follicles, they are less likely to be killed by the effects of DHT. They are stronger and healthier. Prevention of mental fatigue and enhanced concentration and memory. A balancing tonic that both increases energy and relaxes the body. Stimulates the
  • 7. central nervous system, aids circulation especially in the legs, and is a mild diuretic. Aids in many types of wound healing. Used for rheumatism, blood diseases, mental disorders, high blood pressure, congestive heart failure, sore throat, and hepatitis. Ginkgo Biloba Used as an antioxidant, improves circulation, brain functions and memory. Works particularly well on the brain and nervous system. It is effective in reducing the symptoms of conditions, such as Alzheimer's, depression, visual problems, and problems of blood circulation. It may also help treat heart disease, strokes, dementia, Raynaud's disease, head injuries, leg cramps, macular degeneration, tinnitus, impotence due to poor blood flow, and diabetes-related nerve damage. The product quot;Brain Stormquot; combines these two ingredients making it a powerful product to help increase blood circulation to the scalp. You can buy Brain Storm here: Silicon Next to oxygen, silicon (Si) is the most prevalent element on Earth. Silicon exists as part of rocks such as granite and quartz or in sand and clay. As crystalline quartz, it constitutes approximately 28% of the earth's crust. Until recently, silicon (Si) was not thought to be of physiological importance since most plant and animal tissues contain relatively small amounts. Further investigation revealed that silicon is present in all soil-grown plants and sometimes in large concentrations. Although only trace amounts are found in the body tissues, research has determined that these small amounts are vital to health. In light of recent research demonstrating the significant physiological benefit from silicon consumption, scientists and researchers recognize silicon's need as an essential nutrient. Silicon's promise as a nutrient that strengthens bones, joints, skin, hair and nails is fully realized in high absorption of orthosilicic acid. The Silicon product with the highest absorption is Biosil. You can purchase Biosil here: Niacin (B3)
  • 8. Has a dilating effect on vessels and capillaries thereby increasing circulation to the scalp and stimulating hair growth. Niacin may also reduce the accumulation of cholesterol which is important since cholesterol on the scalp converts to the enzyme 5 alpha reductase. In addition to Niacin (B3), many B vitamins are very important in preventing hair loss and promoting growth of healthy hair. Including a B-complex as part of your personal strategy is important and offers many other health benefits. We will cover the importance of Vitamins and Minerals for healthy hair in an upcoming lesson. If you want to get ahead of the class, you can visit this page: Hair Loss Vitamins There are other products that can increase blood circulation to the hair root and therefore promote healthy hair and new hair growth. You can read more about them here: Products that Increase Blood Circulation In our next lesson, we will cover the importance of anti-aging ingredients and the effects of free radicals on hair loss. Lesson 10: Free Radical Damage and Hair Loss Many scientist believe that there is a direct correlation between aging and hair loss. Since age is one of the triggers for the production of the enzyme 5-alpha reductase, it is understandable why delaying the effects of aging can also delay hair loss. In addition, free radical damage can affect the hair follicles making them more susceptible to the effects of DHT. Poor diet, aided and abetted by smoking and air pollution, impinges on hair health by activating free radicals,
  • 9. miscreant molecules that can attack cells, including the cells that make new hair. Smoking If you are truly interested in fighting hair loss and you smoke, you need to quit! Smoking will shrink your hair follicles and reduce the blood flow to the root. If you smoke, you hair follicles will be easily and quickly killed by DHT. To help you quit, you may want to check out this e-book. It will help you quit once and for all (without any weight gain). It is guaranteed to work for you or you get your money back. It is a pretty safe deal. Read all about it here: Stress For years the effects of stress and anxiety have been greatly underestimated. We now know that stress has a truly lethal effect in our lives. A recent study found that high stress is a better indicator of heart disease than is high cholesterol. It is no surprise that stress also has a very negative effect on our hair. Stress will weaken the hair follicles affecting their ability to fight-off the effects of DHT. There is finally an e-book that it is absolutely guaranteed to work. It will show you how to get rid of Depression, Stress and Anxiety. And you will be able to do it, drug free. You can get a hold of this helpful and fascinating e-book here: Anti-Aging Products for Hair Loss The following products will not only help your body fight the effects of aging, but will also help protect your hair from free radical damage and help prevent hair loss. Emu Oil Has been gaining recognition for its anti-aging properties. Specifically its ability to penetrate deeply into the skin and moisturize it. In several studies emu oil has shown its ability to increase epidermal (skin) thickness. This is great news for wrinkles. However, the most important anti-aging property for hair loss is that it has shown that it can quot;chargequot; the hair follicles. This means that the hair follicle is kept in its androgen (growth) stage longer. It has shown great promise in the
  • 10. actual regrowth of hair. It has also been recommended for hair loss due to its anti-androgen properties. Place directly in the scalp it can lower DHT levels and therefore prevent damage the hair follicle. Yet another added benefit is that the oil contains many essential fatty acids and it is absorbed very well into the skin and scalp. This promotes the overall health of the scalp and hair. So in summary, it is now believed that emu oil may not only halt hair loss, but it may actually promote regrowth. The oil is non-greasy at it can be applied directly to the scalp at night. Selenium and Zinc Both products eliminate the free radical damage caused by the oxidation of fats on the scalp and in the body. There is increasing evidence that the use of these products can help slow down hair loss. Recently, zinc in particular has been receiving more attention for its role in stopping hair loss. Zinc seems to be more important and effective than previously thought. There have been studies in which zinc is shown to inhibit 5 alpha reductase activity and therefore inhibits the productions of DHT. These two trace elements offer other benefits as well. Selenium and Zinc to Prevent Hair Loss • Block DHT by inhibiting the activity of the enzyme 5 alpha reductase. • Anti-aging properties-eliminate free radical damage. • Promote hair growth. • Pumpkin Seed is a great natural source of Zinc. The Pumpkin Seed Complex contains both Zinc and Selenium. It also contains many other ingredients that help block DHT and promote hair growth. Buy Pumpkin Seed Capsules here There are many other anti-aging products worth checking out like Alpha Lipoic Acid and Aloe Vera. To find out more about this product, you can visit this page: Natural Anti-Aging Products
  • 11. In our next lesson, we will cover the importance of nourishing and protecting your hair and scalp. Lesson 10: Nourish your Hair and Scalp Our hair IS affected by pollution, chemical treatments, stress, nutritional deficiencies, etc. It is understandable that if the quot;normalquot; hair (the hair that is not being affected by DHT) is limp, dry and breaks easily, any actual hair loss is going to be more noticeable. In addition, mal nourished hair roots will age faster and will be more susceptible to the effects of DHT. So in addition to preventing hair loss, we should maintain our hair as strong and as healthy as we can. This will make the thinning of the hair due to hair loss be less noticeable. And again, strong hair follicles can better withstand the DHT attack. Jojoba oil Jojoba oil is an excellent product and an important component to the our hair loss halting strategy. It significantly nourishes the hair and scalp promoting their overall health. Its scalp cleaning properties have been well documented. In addition, promotes hair growth and has anti-aging properties. To learn more about jojoba oil, you can visit this page: Jojoba Oil and Hair Loss Aloe Vera Nourishes the hair and scalp by moisturizing them. In addition, its anti-biotic properties keep the scalp healthy and free of bacteria and fungus which can lead to scalp and hair problems. It also contains many of the products that seem to be effective in fighting hair loss. Like biotin, b-vitamins, zinc and even inositil. In addition the moisturizing qualities when applied to the scalp increase the blood circulation to the hair follicle. MSM Methylsulfonylmethane (MSM) is a naturally occurring, organic sulfur-containing compound related to another sulfur-containing substance, DMSO (Dimethyl Sulfoxide). Though it is believed that MSM also relieves chronic headaches and back pain, it is the relief of arthritis pain
  • 12. as its biggest claim to fame. In theory, MSM reduces inflammation by increasing the effectiveness of cortisol, which is the body's own natural inflammation fighter. MSM is necessary for collagen synthesis: skin, hair and nails. MSM helps keep the hair, skin, and nails healthy. It is also a free radical scavenger. Meaning that it protects against free radical damage. MSM is quickly gaining recognition as a supplement used for the treatment of allergies, boosting the immune system, aiding in the healing of scar tissue and promoting healthy joints. Recently, new evidence has been found that MSM makes hair grow faster. To Learn more about Aloe Vera, MSM, Jojoba and other products that nourish and protect your hair and scalp. You can visit this page: Products that Protect and Nourish the Scalp Biotin Biotin is a B vitamin and it is the best known vitamin for the health and beauty of Hair, Skin and Nails. Also referred to as Vitamin H, this vitamin promotes hair growth, protects against dryness and is involved in the biosynthesis of unsaturated fats. More about Biotin and all the other essential vitamins and minerals for healthy hair will be covered in tomorrow's lesson. To get ahead of class and learn about the powerful combination of Niacin and Biotin for hair growth go here: Lesson 11: Essential Vitamins and Minerals for Beautiful Strong Hair One key factor in maintaining a growing protein on a part of one's biological body is obvious: one must maintain a healthy diet. Although certain factors have been definitely identified as contributors to hair loss, we must keep in mind that hair is part of the complete biological system of the human body. Being a system, dysfunctions in one part of the system can contribute to dysfunctions in other parts; chain reactions occur when one part of the body malfunctions, causing other parts
  • 13. within the system to falter. To maintain optimum health, it is best to maintain a healthy diet and regular exercise regimen. Principally, the main vitamins, minerals, and nutrients that one must ingest in some form to maintain healthy hair are vitamin A, all B vitamins-particularly vitamins B-6 and B-12, folic acid, biotin, vitamin C, vitamin E, copper, iron, zinc, iodine, protein of course, silica, essential fatty acids (EFA's, formerly known as vitamin F) and last but not least one must consume water. You can find all the vitamins and minerals needed for healthy hair in Vitol's Great Hair. Vitamin A is a key component to developing healthy cells and tissues in the body, including hair. Additionally it works with silica and zinc to prevent drying and clogging of the sebaceous glands, the glands vital to producing sebum, which is an important lubricant for the hair follicle. Vitamin A deficiencies commonly cause thickening of the scalp, dry hair, and dandruff. Air pollution, smoking, extremely bright light, certain cholesterol-lowering drugs, laxatives, and aspirin are some known vitamin A inhibitors. Liver, fish oil, eggs, fortified milk, and red, yellow, and orange vegetables are good sources for vitamin A, as are some dark green leafy vegetables like spinach. Be particularly careful if you take vitamin A supplements, as vitamin A is fat-soluble, allowing the body to store it and making it easy for the body to overdose on vitamin A. B-vitamins work interdependently and therefore all levels of B vitamins need to be sufficient in order to maintain proper health. Vitamins B-6, folic acid, biotin, and vitamin B-12 are all key components in maintaining healthy hemoglobin levels in the blood, which is the iron-containing portion of red-blood cells. Hemoglobin's primary function is to carry oxygen from the lungs to the tissues of the body, so if these vitamins were deficient in one's body, then hair and skin would indeed suffer. Vitamin C is responsible for the development of healthy collagen, which is necessary to hold body tissues together. A vitamin C deficiency can cause split ends and hair breakage, yet this is easily reversible with an increase to normal vitamin C levels. Vitamin E is necessary to provide good blood circulation to the scalp by increasing the uptake of oxygen. Copper is a trace mineral that is also necessary in the
  • 14. production of hemoglobin. Hemoglobin as mentioned earlier is vital to the process of carrying oxygen to tissues such as the hair, and obviously hair is alive cannot grow without proper oxygen, yet it does not breathe as other components of our body do, because the oxygen must get to the shaft of the hair. Another key mineral vital in the production of hemoglobin is iron. Iron is found in two forms, heme and non-heme; heme iron is much easier to absorb into the system. This is where the problem lies. Of course most people know that red meat is a good source of iron, however red meat is non-heme iron and is difficult for the body to absorb, as are many iron supplements. Good heme iron sources are green leafy vegetables, kidney beans, and bran. Additionally, one can increase the absorption of non-heme iron into the body by consuming non-heme food sources and vitamin C sources in the same meal. Zinc is another vital component to healthy hair, being that it is responsible for cell production, tissue growth and repair, and the maintenance of the oil-secreting glands of the scalp. It also plays a large role in protein synthesis and collagen formation. For this reason, zinc is important for both hair maintenance and dandruff prevention. Most Americans are deficient in zinc. Iodine is vital to the growth of hair. Sheep farmers long ago discovered that vegetation void of iodine due to iodine-depleted soil will adversely affect the growth of wool in sheep. Likewise, our hair needs iodine to grow. Iodine is synthetically added to table salt, however in this form it is not assimilated well into the body and can therefore cause iodine overload. An excess of iodine in the body can adversely affect the thyroid. It is best to use non-iodized salt and retrieve your iodine from natural food sources. These include seaweed, salmon, seafood, lima beans, molasses, eggs, potatoes with the skin on, watercress and garlic.As mentioned in an earlier lesson, one of the most difficult nutrients vital to hair growth to get in one's diet is the trace mineral silica. Silicon is a form of silicon and is the second most abundant element in the earth's crust, second only to oxygen. The Earth provides everything we need for health, and with silicon being so abundant, it would seem that there would never be a problem with silica deficiency. Unfortunately, trace minerals are rare in Western diets because our food is processed and our soil depleted by chemical treatments so often that trace minerals are lost. Silica is vital to the strength of hair, and although it will
  • 15. not necessarily stop hair from falling out from the follicle, it will stop hair breakage. It works by stimulating the cell metabolism and formation, which slows the aging process. Essential Fatty Acids (EFA's) are fatty acids that are needed by the body yet not produced by the body. EFA's are a key component to healthy skin, hair and nails. Common skin diseases, like eczema and seborrhea, are in part caused by deficiencies in EFA's. Including deep-water fish such as salmon, sardines, mackerel, trout, or herring approximately three times a week will provide sufficient amounts of EFA's. However, if for some reason you cannot eat deep-water fish or have an extreme dislike for it, it may be necessary to take a supplement to obtain the required amount of EFA's. Last but not least, make sure to include the proper amount of water in your diet. Water is vital to proper hydration, which is necessary in order for all nutrients to be utilized properly by the body, not to mention the proper function of every cell in the body including hair follicles. The suggested amount of water intake daily is eight 8-ounce glasses of water a day, or 64 ounces a day. Although nutritional remedies were those that were discussed here, supplements can be used if one feels they are simply unable to eat properly due to work schedule or dislike of certain foods. Nutritional supplements containing these same vitamins and minerals can be taken. There are some cautions to taking supplements of certain vitamins and minerals, particularly those that are fat-soluble because the body stores them. Vitamin A can be highly toxic and supplements of vitamin A should be avoided unless recommended by a doctor. It is best to achieve one's vitamin A requirements either by food or through a multivitamin. Also remember that smoking and second hand smoke can cause blocking of vitamin A assimilation, so it is best to avoid smoking and remove one's self from areas and situations where second hand smoke is present if at all possible. Zinc is one fat-soluble mineral that can cause harm if an overdose is taken. Zinc can rob the body of copper, mentioned above as a key nutrient in hair growth and health, not to mention in other functions of the body. Zinc supplements should be taken in low doses, such as 5mg at a time. There is a quot;trickquot; to tell if you are taking too much zinc. When the zinc levels in the body have surpassed the level that they can be used, a metallic taste begins to form.
  • 16. If you pay attention to the metallic taste, you will know when enough zinc has been consumed, and you can then stop consuming zinc immediately. Since there are so few foods to mention that are grown in North America and contain a good amount of silica, supplements may truly be needed. Nettle is also a good source of silica (and it is also a DHT blocker). Another great source of Silica is Biosil Liquid Silicon. Supplements of Essential Fatty Acids (EFA's) can be easily added to our daily routines. The best EFA and the one most recommended is Evening Primrose Oil. This oil is available in easy to take capsules. There are a number of foods and substances to avoid and limit the intake of. Substances such as alcohol, caffeine, sugar and nicotine can deplete the body of nutrients and raise adrenal levels, which will cause a chain reaction of producing more androgen and causing hair loss. High levels of saturated fat and cholesterol rich foods are also linked to increased DHT levels and their consumption should be limited. Additionally, common table salt has been linked to hair loss. And the average diet provides the recommended amount of sodium intake; therefore, salt should never be added to food. However, when using salt for seasoning during cooking, be sure to use salt with Iodine being that it is a nutrient that is vital to hair growth as well, unless you are a regular consumer of seafood, which contains high levels of Iodine. There are products like Vitol's Great Hair which contain all of these essential vitamins and minerals in the perfect balance to give your hair and your body all the nutrition that they need. The basic prescription for the ultimate nutritionally healthy hair would be: • Vitol's Great Hair supplement • Evening Primrose Oil capsules • Biosil Liquid Silica. You can get all of these products here: If you follow this prescription your hair will have all the nutrition it needs to grow strong, healthy, shinny and to be able to better fight the effects of any left over DHT.
  • 17. Please remember that if there is one thing that we have tried to make very clear in this e-course is that if you hope to have any impact on your hair loss, you need to be taking a DHT blocker. So don't forget to add a natural DHT blocker to the prescription above. We hope this e-course has given you a clear understanding of the causes of hair loss and the many options you have to fight it.
