One chief sign of zinc deficiency is hair loss
There are many reasons why we need zinc in our bodies. These reasons include:
- Building healthy cells
- Regulating hormones
- Aiding in the absorption of other nutrients
Of course, too much of a good thing is not always good either, and this holds true with zinc. It is a common fear that too much zinc in the body can raise levels of DHT. It may seem strange, because even though DHT levels are raised, production is limited. Using zinc as a DHT blocker is not effective. Zinc helps to keep hormone levels regulated, which is one of the reasons why it is so effective in preventing and treating hair loss.
