Soy, Another Natural Hair Growth Remedy

  2. 2.  Hair loss is a slow process that begins with the degradation of the quality of the hair and scalp. Basically, a gorgeous mane relies on how well- conditioned the hair follicles are. The hair follicles are where the biochemical activity of the hair begins and ends. Like any other minor or major biological process in the body, hair growth can be influenced by a number of factors that determine the health of the hair itself and, sometimes even, the entire body system. This is why hair is often regarded as a health meter. When hair loss occurs, it can make a person look sick, weak, and aged. There is a variety of treatments for baldness including medications, surgeries, herbs, and light therapies. In addition to these conventional treatments, soy was shown to be an effective natural hair growth remedy as well. In a research published in the journal Biology of Reproduction, soymilk was able to minimize hair loss due to dihydrotestosterone (DHT). Isoflavones from soy products can be converted into the compound equol. Equol inhibits DHT, hence an ideal component of a hair growth remedy. http://www.1300hairloss.com.au
  3. 3.  DHT has the tendency to form in excess around the follicles, altering the manner by which the latter absorb nutrients. This causes hair loss and excessive hair fall. Apparently, soy products can be compared to the synthetic hair growth remedy finasteride (Propecia). Finasteride is an oral prescription medication that blocks 5-alpha reductase enzyme from converting testosterone into DHT. Soy products such as tofu, tempeh, miso, and soymilk would definitely be a great help for people with DHT- induced hair loss. Besides the fact that they come cheap and easily accessible, soy products have other health benefits. http://www.1300hairloss.com.au
  4. 4.  Because it influences the metabolism of sex hormone and biological activities, soy isoflavones can decrease the incidence of breast cancer and other common cancers. The recommended serving dosage of soy protein is 25 g. Increasing the dosage (more than 30 mg) could lead to health risks. Unfortunately, soy can have side effects including infertility in men since soy has estrogen-like isoflavones. It can also have adverse effects on the thyroid glands. http://www.1300hairloss.com.au
