Men's Health: Hair Loss

Hair loss may be caused by nutrient depletion, certain disease states, medications, or just simply your genetics. Even though there are a few different types of alopecia the one that we may think of most often happens as we age and is usually based on your genetic predisposition. Men and women can both experience androgenic hair loss, but it’s more prominent in men. Good nutrition may help support the hair you still have.

Male pattern baldness has a lot to do with genetics, but focusing on good nutrition can help the locks you still have stay thick and healthy. Think about it; if your typical diet is full of sugar and carbohydrates then you’re probably not getting the essential nutrients your body needs to thrive, so your thinning hairline isn’t going to benefit. A good diet is good for so much more than just your hair so know that although great hair would be nice, it’s going to help you in so many other ways. If you want more support RegeneMax Plus by Xymogen is a supplement that may help support healthy hair, skin, and nails. Another product that may be worth a try is YoungLiving's Cedarwood oil.
