Well, there’s very little solid evidence to prove that it helps reverse hair loss, but asparagus DOES contain plenty of useful nutrients that may contribute to healthy hair growth…


  • Asparagus is rich in silica, described in 1939 by Nobel Prize winning chemist Adolf Butenandt as “…an important component of hair… and adequate intake (of which) is thought to prevent baldness and stimulate hair growth.”
  • These tasty green spears also contain iron, an often overlooked mineral in the battle against hair loss. In fact, the UK’s Cotswolds Trichology Centre cites iron deficiency as one of the most common causes of hair loss.图片1
  • Asparagus tops the list of alkaline foods. Some experts put hair loss down to a diet overly rich in acidic foods, recommending alkaline foods to restore hair and promote overall well-being.
  • Asparagus contains lots of vitamins C and E, both of which are important for healthy hair, nails and skin.

So it’s certainly worth trying to include more asparagus in your diet. There’s no doubt it’s a nutritious food that’s good for your health in general…

…and if consuming it also improves the growth of your hair, then that’s a tremendous bonus!
