Bariatric Vitamins For Hair Loss

bariatric vitamins for hair loss

Hair skin and nails loss following bariatric surgery is common. It generally happens 3 – 5 months after surgery and is similar to the normal hair growth cycle. Fortunately, it is possible to minimize or prevent hair loss by ensuring your post-surgery diet is rich in protein and the right nutrients.

The most common deficiencies are low levels of folic acid (B9), zinc and iron which can lead to hair loss. A dietary supplement containing these nutrients and other essential vitamins can help reduce hair loss after surgery, especially if taken consistently.

How to Choose the Right Bariatric Vitamin for Your Hair Loss

Vitamins A, E and C are antioxidants that protect the scalp and promote regrowth. They also improve the absorption of iron – iron deficiency anaemia is another factor that contributes to hair loss.

Omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids are essential for the healthy growth of the cell membranes that surround the follicles. They also help to boost collagen production, which strengthens the hair and prevents it from breaking.

Other important vitamins that are associated with hair growth include B-vitamins, iron, folic acid and copper. A dietary supplement with all these nutrients can help to prevent hair loss after bariatric surgery and keep it looking its best.

Taking a bariatric multi-supplement and following your hospital’s nutritional prescription can help to minimize hair loss after bariatric surgery by helping your body to stay healthy and strong. Our bariatric program checks your nutrient status at the beginning of your surgery and we will continue to monitor your nutrient levels for a period after surgery, so be sure you are taking the supplements you need.
