To prevent alopecia, we have to make our body strong enriched with nutrients.  We have to add Vitamin A, C and E in our daily diet to make our body immunized and help fighting alopecia.

 

 

Vitamin A - Alopecia

 

Vitamin A:

Vitamin C:

Vitamin C - Alopecia

Vitamin C is very important for your immune system & your hair.  You’ll find Vitamin C in lemons, but I always suggest if you need Vitamin C then use gooseberries.  You’ll never find the most natural Vitamin C in any other products than in gooseberries.  Gooseberry is the only fruit that you can convert it into any forms and it never looses its Vitamin C in it.  Even if you dry it or boil the gooseberry, it stores its Vitamin C in itself.  In other fruits, the Vitamin C can be found in natural ways, but if you process or dry them, they loose their Vitamin C property.  You can have gooseberry powder, juices, or you can have fresh gooseberry fruit itself; this way you’ll get Vitamin C.  Your immune system will get strong, and you’ll be free from alopecia too.

 

Vitamin E:

Vitamin E - Alopecia

You’ll get Vitamin E from walnuts, almonds and also soya products.  Soya products are rich in healthy proteins along with Vitamin E.  Soak the soya beans in water overnight; boil & mash it well in the morning and use it any ways. Try to consume all these on a regular basis.  Whenever or wherever you go, make a habit of having at lease any one from the above Vitamins.  It will definitely help you out free from alopecia If you are already suffering from alopecia, even that will start getting healed because your body must have become strong from inside to fight with alopecia.
