Can Protein Shakes Cause Hair Loss?

While protein is actually linked to hair growth, it is most likely not responsible for being the cause of balding. This doesn’t necessarily mean that the more protein you have the healthier you and your hair will be. You just need to get the recommended daily value of protein, which actually isn’t much. The average diet for a healthy adult includes around 50g of protein daily, which is very easy to obtain. Most people do not have to worry about having a protein deficiency. However, if you are using protein shakes you may be consuming too much protein at the detriment to the other nutrients your hair and body needs. Although this is highly unlikely, an unbalanced diet over time can cause medical issues and hair loss.

If you are experiencing hair loss, it is most likely due to something other than your protein shakes. Any drugs that increase your hormone levels for example may be to blame. First and foremost, you should seek your physician to rule out any medical causes to your hair loss. In any case, if you would like to go about restoring your hair, Bosley Medical can help.
