Vitamins are low-molecular compounds that act as activators of all types of biochemical reactions occurring in the human body. To understand how important vitamins play in the vital activity and normal functioning of all human organs and systems, it is necessary to know that absolutely all processes in the body at the molecular level occur precisely in the form of biochemical reactions. That is, absolutely all functions and processes are provided precisely by cascades of various types of biochemical reactions. For example, the process of respiration, namely the combination of oxygen with the hemoglobin of erythrocytesand its transfer into tissue with subsequent transfer to cells is carried out by a strictly defined cascade of biochemical reactions. Similarly, the transfer of nutrients and their use for the needs of the cells is carried out by chemical transformations. And it is vitamins that are necessary components for the normal course and activation of all biochemical reactions in the human body. Thus, it becomes obvious that vitamins ensure the normal functioning of all cells in the body.

Hair is an appendage of the skin, that is, are parts of the epidermis. Each hair consists of a long fiber that feeds on a follicle located in the skin on the head, body or face. Actually, the hair fiber is dense, as the top is covered with numerous horny scales. For the normal functioning and preservation of hair, their bulb (follicle), located in the deep layers of the skin, must receive an adequate supply of nutrients and oxygen. In the hair follicle a variety of biochemical reactions take place that support health.the entire hair and prevent it from falling out. Naturally, all the biochemical reactions necessary for the sustenance of hair are maintained and activated only in the presence of vitamins coming from outside. Thus, it becomes clear why a lack of vitamins can provoke enhanced hair loss . It is also obvious that in such cases, in order to stop hair loss, it is simply necessary to compensate for the deficiency of certain vitamins, which play the greatest role in maintaining the normal functioning of hair follicles. Consider the various aspects of vitamins and stop hair loss.

Hair Vitamins - Definition and Physiological Meaning


Every hair on any part of the body - the head, body or face - starts from the hair follicle or bulb, located in the structures of the skin. From the follicle begins to grow fiber, which is our usual hair. Gradually, the fiber length increases, and the hair becomes longer. However, regardless of the length of the hair, its nutrition is carried out only through the bulb. This means that the substances necessary for the vital activity of the hair are brought to the bulbs with blood flow. Then from the follicle, these substances are transported along the entire length of the hair fiber - from the root to the very tip. Thus, in order for the hair to have enough of all the necessary substances for normal life, a sufficient amount of bio-organic compounds (oxygen, proteins, fats, carbohydrates, etc.) must be supplied to the bulb with blood flow.

Of the substances received by the hair follicles, all the hair's needs are met - nutrition, respiration, growth, etc. If the hair is “supplied” well, then it is smooth, durable, resilient, shiny and well growing. Externally, such hair looks very good and can be described as gorgeous. Beautiful, thick and long hair suggests that its owner has excellent health and an adequate amount of vitamins.

If the hair is deficient in vitamins, then their appearance becomes unattractive - they lose their smoothness, shine, elasticity and strength, begin to fall out, cross, quickly become dirty, dandruff appearsetc. This is because vitamin deficiency leads to an insufficiently intensive flow of normal biochemical reactions that ensure the proper functioning of hair cells. In fact, the cells of the hair fiber begin to starve and suffocate, because the low metabolic rate due to a lack of vitamins does not allow them to receive adequate amounts of oxygen and various nutrients.

Since strictly defined cascades of biochemical reactions take place in the hair, certain vitamins are also needed to activate them. The fact is that each vitamin is able to activate and maintain the normal course of any particular type of biochemical reactions. For example, vitamin A activates reactions that provide the synthesis of collagen fibers in the skin, nails, hair and connective tissue, etc. If these vitamins are not enough, then the hair will fall hard and look bad.

What vitamin deficiency can cause hair loss


Hair loss can be triggered by a deficiency in the following vitamins: Vitamin A;

Vitamin B 5 ;

Vitamin B 6 ;

Vitamin C;

Vitamin E;

Vitamin F (F).

Vitamins for hair loss


In principle, so that the hair does not fall out, the human body needs all 13 known vitamins. However, some of them are especially necessary, since they ensure the normal course of life processes in the hair structures. These vitamins can be considered as "vitamins from hair loss."

So, the following are among the effective anti-hair loss vitamins:

Vitamin B 2 (riboflavin);

Vitamin B 3 (PP, nicotinamide, nicotinic acid);

Vitamin B 5 (pantothenic acid, panthenol);

Vitamin B 6 (pyridoxine);

Vitamin H (biotin);

Folic acid;

Vitamin C (ascorbic acid);

Vitamin A (retinol);

Vitamin E;

Vitamin F (F).

To stop hair loss or significantly reduce the speed of this process, you need to take all the listed vitamins in the average daily dosage. It is best to take specialized vitamin and mineral complexes. However, if there is no such possibility, or a person wants to take vitamins separately, then you should start with the "most important" among those listed. The "most important" vitamins for hair are biotin, panthenol, E, A and C. Consider the properties of vitamins, due to which they are able to stop hair loss.

Vitamin b2Necessary for maintaining active blood flow to the hair follicles. Intensive blood supply ensures the inflow of a sufficient amount of nutrients and oxygen to the hair follicles, from where they penetrate all the cells of the hair itself, making it beautiful and durable. Good nutrition of the hair bulb prevents hair loss. If a person is deficient in vitamin B2 , then the hair becomes greasy at the roots and dry at the ends.

Vitamin B3 (PP) improves the nutrition of the hair follicles and normalizes the metabolic processes in them, thereby preventing and preventing hair loss. A deficiency of nicotinic acid (vitamin PP) provokes dry and slow hair growth.

Vitamin B5 able to penetrate directly into the hair follicle, improving blood circulation, nutrition and metabolic processes in all its cells. From the hair follicles, this vitamin penetrates into all the hair cells, also normalizing their metabolism. Consequently, pantothenic acid strengthens both the hair and its root from the inside, making them strong and beautiful, and stopping the loss. In principle, panthenol is one of the most important vitamins that can stop hair loss and restore their normal structure. If the human body is deficient in vitamin B 5 , then its hair grows slowly and turns gray quickly.

Vitamin B6 for hair is a very powerful metabolic stimulator. Vitamin B exposure6 dandruff and itching of the scalp disappear, and hair loss stops. Against the background of the deficiency of this vitamin, the hair becomes dull and falls heavily.

Vitamin H is considered the main vitamin for hair, since it is it that ensures their strength and beauty by maintaining an optimal metabolic rate and regulation of the sebaceous glands. Vitamins H and B 5 are rightfully considered the "main" in stopping hair loss and returning beauty to them. With a deficiency of vitamin H, human hair first becomes greasy, then begins to fall out. Folic acid enhances the effect and effects of vitamin B 5. If these vitamins are taken in combination, then hair growth will significantly accelerate, and their loss will stop. This effect is achieved due to the fact that folic acid activates the process of synthesis of new, full-fledged cellular structures that replace the old and worn out. With folic acid deficiency, a person's hair will turn gray very quickly and at an early age.

Vitamin C normalizes the tone of the capillaries, in which blood is brought to the hair follicles. Under the influence of normalization of the capillary tone, microcirculation improves, which increases blood flow to the hair follicles, and, consequently, improves their nutrition. It is due to the improved nutrition of the hair follicles that hair loss stops. With a deficiency of vitamin C there is a moderate hair loss.

Vitamin A provides normal hair density, improves the flow of metabolic processes in the roots, improves elasticity, thereby reducing brittleness, and also accelerates the growth of hair fiber. In addition, vitamin A normalizes sebum production, eliminating excess fat or seborrhea . With a vitamin deficiency, hair falls out and becomes dull and brittle.

Vitamin E normalizes the nutrition of the hair follicles, as well as regulates sebum secretion. It seems to activate all the hair cells that are in a depressed, sluggish state. Due to the optimal nutrition, the supply of oxygen to the hair follicles, as well as the activation of all cells to active work, vitamin E stops hair loss. With a deficiency of this vitamin develops moderate or severe hair loss, as well as seborrhea.

Vitamin F (F) gives hair strength, making them resistant to various negative effects. In fact, vitamin F strengthens the hair, thereby stopping its loss.

Hair loss - which vitamins to drink in different situations Hair can fall out under the influence of various causal factors that may not have anything to do with vitamin deficiencies. For example, against the background of an imbalance of thyroid hormones or genital organs, in diseases of the digestive tract or skin, etc. However, the most common cause of hair loss in men, women and children is hypovitaminosis, which has developed under the influence of certain reasons. Depending on gender and age, hair loss can be a deficiency of various vitamins that are most intensively used by the human body during this period. Consider exactly which vitamins are most appropriate to take with hair loss in men, women and children.
