Great hair food: turmeric

Turmeric, a spice derived from the east-Asian plant, has been used in Ayurvedic medicine for centuries. 

When consumed, the spice stimulates the body’s natural steroids, corticosteroids, to reduce inflammation and swelling.

Some hair loss can be associated with inflammatory conditions.

Additionally, the MPB Research Labs in Korea conducted preliminary research that concluded a component in turmeric, curcumin, promotes hair growth by inhibiting a hormone that causes follicles to age and eventually die.
