Study Shows Broccoli And Cauliflower May Help To Combat Hair Loss

They may not be your favourite vegetables, but they’re definitely on the road to becoming one of the most popular vegetables now, after a new study revealed that the organic compound sulforaphane, that’s found in broccoli and cauliflower actually helps to prevent hair loss and even promote hair growth.

In a study conducted by South Korean company Gragem Co., Ltd., a team of scientists had developed a gel prototype containing four active ingredients of dexpanthenol, biotin, L-menthol and sulforaphane, and conducted a clinic trial among 23 male and female participants aged 18 to 54 with androgenetic alopecia.

The researchers then observed the participants’ hair loss symptoms after using the gel for over 18 weeks, and the results showed that the product was able to induce up to 7% of hair growth for most individuals, who saw their “parietal lines and bangs visually improved” after using the product.

Therefore, the authors of the study stated that their findings “strongly suggest that sulforaphane may be an active ingredient that significantly alleviates hair loss symptoms.” And although the study focuses on extracting the organic compound and formulating it into a gel form, the same results can probably be achieved by eating fresh broccoli and cauliflower that already contain the same natural ingredient.

Maybe it’s time we show more love to these vegetables, not just because they taste amazing, but also to protect our luscious locks.
