The American Academy of Dermatology Association (AAD) noted that being low on biotin, iron, protein, or zinc may be contributing to hair loss. Which foods are rich in these ingredients? “If you’re not getting enough of one or more of these, you can have noticeable hair loss,” said the AAD.

“Most people should be able to get all the iron they need by eating a varied and balanced diet,” said the NHS.

Taking iron supplements can lead to undesirable side effects, such as:

  • Constipation
  • Feeling sick
  • Being sick
  • Stomach pain

“Very high doses of iron [supplements] can be fatal, particularly if taken by children,” warned the national health body.

Signs of an iron deficiency manifests as anaemia, and can lead to the following symptoms:

  • Tiredness and lack of energy
  • Shortness of breath
  • Heart palpitations
  • Pale skin

The reason being that some high-protein foods can also be high in saturated fat, which increases your risk of cardiovascular disease.

Zinc

You can find zinc in oysters, which are the best source of the nutrient, said the NIH.

Other good sources of zinc include: crab, lobsters, red meat, and poultry.

“Zinc is present in almost all multivitamin/mineral dietary supplements,” added the NIH.

Those at risk of a zinc deficiency include vegetarians, those who had gastrointestinal or weight loss surgery, or those with Crohn’s disease.
