Herbal Supplements That Help Men Grow Thicker Hair

Updated on June 6, 2016

Remedies For Thinning Hair

Hair Loss In Men - A Common Problem As We Age

It's well known that as men age, there is more of a likelihood that they may experience hair thinning or hair loss. It's a very scary feeling, especially if you are currently experiencing thinning of the hair. But the good news is that there is hope for those that are losing their hair, and there are herbal supplements and vitamins that can encourage healthy hair growth and ultimately prevent hair loss. I started experiencing hair loss and a receding hair line at the age of 25 years old, and I tried so many things to stop it. Ultimately, I found out that things like rogaine and prescription medications did not do the trick and the side affects for prescription methods are not worth it when it comes to the health risks. So I started to look into natural supplements and herbs that help you grow healthier hair. I learned a lot and I am proud to say that I actually have thicker hair than I did 6 months ago before I started doing the research.

I learned that there are actually a lot of nutrients that the body needs to grow healthy hair and if you are experiencing hair loss, it may be possible that you are deficient in some of these nutrients. Sometimes people will see their doctor about thinning hair and they will find out that they could be deficient in one of these nutrients or vitamins.

  • Biotin, Biotin is a B vitamin that is absolutely essential for healthy hair.
  • Not enough protein can be a cause for hair loss
  • Not getting enough iron
  • Not enough vitamin A and vitamin E in your diet

There is also a correlation between hair loss and poor circulation and the best way to combat that is to make sure that you are exercising regularly and eating a healthy diet with limited fats. There is also research that indicates that having too much stress can cause thinning of the hair, premature aging and hair loss as well.

In addition to these critical nutrients and factors, there are also some chinese supplements that have been proven to help you grow thicker hair and prevent hair loss.

      Thanks for your comment BNadyn, Well I can only hope he see's results with the supplements and foods that I mentioned. If you can find a shampoo that has keratin or biotin in it. That definitely will help, sometimes I run into shampoos that make your hair look thicker too.. They worked well for me as well.

      Great info that I need to pass along to my hubby. He was thinking about trying Rogaine but I didn't think that would work either. He may be lacking some of the nutrients you pointed out and I know he gets pretty stressed every now and then so I will work with him to eat better and relax more! Thanks for sharing this =)

      Hi Entourage,

      I think that supplements are great.

      for growing hair, I've been using Biotin and it

      has been wonderful. the only downfall is that it can

      give you really bad acne and your blood is thicker and you

      have to drink alot more water. thanks for the info.

      Voted up.
