Sea Kelp for Hair Loss: Does it Really Prevent and Treat it?

Sea kelp for hair loss? Really? It’s the question on everyone’s lips!

Sea Kelp for hair loss appears to be one of the most googled hair loss treatment. Sea Kelp is commonly thought to prevent hair loss and boost hair growth, but does it actually work, or is it just an old wives tale? 

Unfortunately, an old wives tale, Sea Kelp does not directly promote hair growth. It is thought to support normal Thyroid function but I have yet to see any patients thyroid improve from taking Kelp.

Many people take Sea Kelp before visiting a Trichologist and book their appointment as self prescribing vitamins hasn’t worked. Other vitamins frequently self prescribed for hair loss include Biotin and marine collagen.’

Sea Kelp Minerals

Sea kelp is thought to be beneficial to hair strength due to the vitamins and minerals it contains. It is a source of vitamins A, B1, B2, C, D and E, plus zinc, iodine, magnesium, iron, copper and potassium. It also contains a 10 times more calcium than milk.

Sea kelp supplements have been linked to weight loss and anti-ageing. Although critics warn against high iodine levels and potentially high levels of toxic heavy metals. 

If hair loss is your main concern, consult a registered Trichologist. They will spend time exploring all potential causes of hair loss and will often use blood tests to aid a diagnosis.

Your GP is the best person to diagnose and treat a thyroid problem.  Herbs and supplements will not correct it so mid you think your thyroid has become lazy, book an appointment to discuss it with your Doctor. If you have an under active thyroid gland, it cannot be treated with Sea Kelp!
