20 – High protein diet, helps in hair growth
It is a recent misleading promotion to have high protein diet. Balanced diet with proper proportion of all nutrients is the best way to have healthy hair. All protein foods make the blood acidic. The raised acidity leads to reabsorption of calcium back into the blood to buffer this high acidity. Acidic blood does not favor hair growth. The calcium being bound in the blood is not available to the bones and hair for utilization. The liver and kidney too are over worked to clear all extra nitrogenous waste from high protein diet.
