In this video, we’re going to talk about the importance of vitamin D for your hair. In particular, I want to show you the connection between vitamin D deficiency and hair loss.

Right beneath your skin, you have follicles. These are like the roots of your hair. On the root area, you have sebaceous glands, which produce an oily, waxy substance that protects your hair.

Both the sebaceous glands and the follicles have vitamin D receptors.

There are various hair growth stages. One of these stages is called anagen—this is the new hair growth stage.

The anagen phase is dependent on vitamin D.

Your hair follicles are like small organs. Each is made up of 20 different cell types that regulate the growth of the hair. Hormones, immune cells, and proteins also play important roles in the hair growth process.

In cases of both alopecia and general hair loss in women, research has found that a mutation of the vitamin D receptors (VDR) could be the cause of the problem. This VDR mutation blocks your ability to absorb vitamin D into your hair follicles.

The key is to get more vitamin D. It’s ideal to have at least 10,000 IUs of vitamin D daily.

Bile salts can also help improve your absorption of vitamin D.
