Receding hairline has become a common sight among the youth. Various factors can lead to hair loss and hair thinning. Lifestyle and stress are the major reasons causing hair problems among the youth. Dealing with hair loss and other scalp issues can be very stressful. 

People often look for herbal treatments and natural supplements options to reduce or reverse hair problems. 

One of the supplements that is often promoted as a natural treatment for hair loss is Beta-Sitosterol. 

What is beta-sitosterol for hair loss?

Beta-Sitosterol is a plant-based substance found in vegetables, fruits and nuts. It is a phytosterol whose chemical structure is similar to that of cholesterol. This plant-based substance is often used to make medicines to treat heart disease and high cholesterol. It can also boost the immune system and can also combat headaches, asthma and even hair loss

Beta-sitosterol is said to effectively treat male pattern baldness and prevent hair loss as it restrains the production of androgen DHT. DHT leads to progressive thinning of hair and ultimately hair loss. Therefore, restraining the production may stop or slow the rate of hair fall. The anti-inflammatory,  anti-microbial, anti-bacterial, anti-viral and anti-fungal properties of Beta-Sitosterol, when topically applied directly to the scalp, can soothe the scalp. This will further reduce itching and dryness in the scalp reducing hair loss. Few studies have suggested an improvement in the hair quality after consumption of supplementary dietary medication of  Beta-Sitosterol. However, there is still a derth of studies to prove it.

A supplementary diet for hair problems should only be taken after consultation from a dermatologist. A good hair doctor does a proper hair test and analysis to understand the causes of hair loss. If required to take beta-sitosterol for hair loss, your hair doctor can suggest the right dosage.
