How does zinc deficiency cause hair loss?
Zinc deficiency also known as hypozincemia leads to hair loss. Considering this, zinc levels in the body should be maintained. Zinc deficiency leads to hair thinning. A research study including 312 patients with hair balding problems indicated that zinc deficiency was linked to alopecia areta (AA) and telogen effluvium. Here’s what zinc deficiency does in your body: The protein structure of the hair follicle is altered which weakens it and causes hair to fall out easily. Furthermore, zinc is associated with the formation of DNA and RNA. Both these substances induce efficient division of follicle cells. Steroid formation is also alleviated which is linked with causing baldness in males.
Can we take zinc in excess?
A high level of zinc in the body influences the uptake of other minerals by the body. It supports the production of testosterone and other hormonal imbalances that leads to hair thinning and increased hair loss. Outcome Zinc levels in the body should be regulated daily. Deficiency or high level of zinc has a bad impact on the body. Zinc deficiency can also occur during pregnancy, alcoholism, gastrointestinal disorder, and vegetarianism. An average male needs up to 11 mg of zinc daily while a female requires 8 mg. Zinc not only benefits hair but also physical growth, immunity, and wound healing.
