Hair Loss is a global phenomenon. It affects millions of people around the world. Hair loss might be inherited from generation to generation. It may be caused by other factors such as uncontrolled diet that is high in saturated and trans fat that results in cholesterol clogging up the arteries causing reduction of oxygen delivered to the cells from the blood stream. Natural aging is a biological and pathological process. At the age of 40,the levels of the by-product prolactin of testosterone in men increases, stimulating the production of the enzyme 5-alpha reductase that causes the conversion of testosterone to gihydro-testosterones DHT causing our hair to grow back thinner or not grown back at all. There are many other factors that might cause hair loss such as mineral deficiency, and medication side effects.

Here are some daily foods that might help to prevent hair loss and promote hair re-growth

Yogurt and soy contain high amounts of protein that is needed to maintain hair growth. Study shows that soy protein reinforces hair and stimulates its growth.

2. Dark green vegetable

3.Whole grain products

Whole grain contains zinc which is needed to maintain healthy hair. Zinc deficiency can lead to dry hair and oily skin.

4. Essential fatty acid
