Iron Deficiency and Hair Loss

It has been documented on such websites as that iron deficiency can cause telogen-effluvium or hair loss.  I wrote an article in March 2011 on this blog about how stress and trauma can cause telogen effluvium as well.  Please see my article on Hair loss due to stress.

According to the website listed above, your iron storage level needs to get above "70" for the hair to regrow.

Other websites have mentioned Vitamin C assists with iron absorption; yet, drinking tea can interfere with iron absorption.
