The sun helps your body produce vitamin D and in New Jersey, most people are vitamin D deficient. For most of us in NJ… the majority of our sun exposure occurs during the summer months. When it begins to get cold, we spend much more time indoors, away from the nourishing rays of the sun.
Vitamin D is essential for strong bones and a healthy immune system, but did you know that it aids in healthy hair growth?
There have been studies that show vitamin D deficiency is a risk factor for alopecia areata, which is an autoimmune disease that produces patchy hair loss in men and women.
There have been other studies that show that genetic hair loss may worsen in those men and women that are vitamin D deficient.
There have also been studies that show a specific link in women’s hair loss due to a lack of vitamin D.
If your hair is not as full as it used to be, we encourage you to do something about it immediately.
It is easier to hold on to the hair you have than regrow the hair you have lost. Early diagnosis and treatment are always your best bet.
