Historically, hair loss has been experienced in men. However, over the years the illness has also been experienced in women. Hair loss is controllable and manageable but not curable. The various causes of hair loss have led to the establishment of a number of treatment options as well as prevention methods. One of the most effective treatment options is the consumption of the correct levels of vitamins that promote hair growth.

Vitamins are very essential in a number of activities in the body. Ideally, almost each and every metabolic activity in the body involves a given vitamin. Some vitamins are essential in absorbing necessary nutrients and supplements that the body needs to promote hair growth. Other vitamins are essential in controlling the levels of some given hormones in the body which have negative effects to hair growth when in excess.

The human body operates under given conditions; such conditions are associated with adequate and appropriate nutrients. The provision of appropriate nutrients is not achieved only from carbohydrates and proteins. Vitamins and minerals make sure that the required content of nutrients in the body are accessed and in right quantities. Hair growth involves a vast system of events in the body that bear close relations with a number of hormones as well as vitamins and minerals.
