Pumpkin seeds a special mention for your good hair

I have repeatedly discovered during my hair research a link between prostate cancer studies and hair loss remedies. I was somewhat surprised when I stumbled upon research linking the humble pumpkin seed, otherwise known as pepitas, as a simple remedy for hair loss.

The Facts: Pumpkin seeds are a good source of protein and unsaturated fatty acids. They have long been an ancient Egyptian and Eastern European folk remedy for men’s health issues.57

Many health professionals claim that pumpkin seeds are effective against hair loss. A recent study found that pumpkin seeds lower testosterone levels, which can be helpful in reducing hair loss.57

The humble pumpkin seed affects the levels of androgen production and inhibits DHT.44 Androgen is the male hormone that plays a very important role in hair loss and hair growth. Increases in DHT can be responsible for shrinking the hair follicle. When the hair follicle gets smaller and finer, the hair then falls out. DHT also creates a wax-like substance around the hair roots and it is this accumulation of DHT in the hair follicles and roots that can give rise to male and female pattern hair loss.58
