Poor digestion, upset stomach, and other digestive maladies are tell-tale signs of a poorly functioning gut. But have you ever stopped to consider that your gut’s health is impacting more than just your digestion?
Your gut can tell you a lot about your health in general, and it can even lend insight into your hair loss woes.
This is why I strongly advocate for a healthy, varied diet in my own hair loss treatment program and to the followers of my Facebook group.
In this article, I’m going to introduce you to the proven link between gut health and hair loss. This will include a look at the scientific studies.
Even more importantly, I’m going to show you how to improve the balance within your gut’s microbiota so you can experience better health and perhaps even increased hair growth.
Let’s jump right in!
A Brief Introduction to the Gut’s Biome
According to Shreiner, Kao, and Young the human microbiome is “composed of bacteria, archaea, viruses and eukaryotic microbes that reside in and on our bodies (1).” The gut microbiome, then, is the collection of microbes that exist within the gastrointestinal tract. This includes everything from the mouth and esophagus to the stomach and colon.
But what exactly is a healthy biome, and how does this contribute to our overall health?
In short, a healthy gut biome is one that contains vast quantities of ‘good’ bacteria (known as probiotics) in order to keep the ‘bad’ bacteria at bay. When this balance is achieved, it contributes to a functioning metabolic and immune system and protects against harmful pathogens such as viruses and bacteria (including Salmonella enteritis) (1).
However, the benefits of a healthy gut go further than that. One way it does so is by helping to promote hair growth.
How Can Gut Health Help with Hair Growth?
While it may seem far fetched that changes within the gut can impact your hair, there’s proof to show this to be true. Let’s take a closer look.
1. It Reduces Inflammation
Inflammation is a natural process which occurs either in the short term (acute) or long term (chronic). Acute cases of inflammation are generally beneficial, as they help to protect injured bones and muscles and can attack foreign invaders such as viruses and bacteria.
But when inflammation becomes chronic – whether due to an allergy or overactive immune response – is when it can cause trouble for the hair.
