Hair loss impacts self-esteem and quality of life, with causes including genetics and environmental factors. MAGISNAT researchers have identified genetic variations in the androgen receptor gene (AR) as contributors to androgenetic alopecia, affecting up to 80% of men and 50% of women. Nutritional deficiencies also play a role, such as iron deficiency impairing oxygen transport to hair follicles and vitamin D deficiency affecting hair follicle cycling. Zinc deficiency and biotin deficiency can lead to hair loss and weakened hair structure. The Mediterranean diet, rich in fruits, vegetables, whole grains, legumes, nuts, seeds, and healthy fats, addresses these deficiencies. Antioxidants protect hair follicles, omega-3 fatty acids improve hair thickness, and biotin supports keratin production. Iron-rich foods sustain healthy hair growth. The Mediterranean diet is an ideal dietary pattern to promote overall health and hair health by preventing hair loss and fostering healthy hair growth through its nutrient-rich composition.
