Today we will go over some of the foods that block DHT, which is proven to be a major cause of hair loss. The foods are split into 3 different groups. Foods that are high in Zinc, foods that are high in Biotin, and foods that are high in Phytosterols.
Zinc is a mineral in our diet that provides an increase in the activity of around 100 different enzymes, which helps our cells develop and grow properly.
