Japanese Nutritionist Claims Eating Curry Will Prevent You From Going Bald

Curry supposedly prevents baldness, according to one Japanese nutritionist.

According to a survey conducted by a popular Japanese wig maker, Japan ranks fairly low on the list of countries with the highest percentage of male baldness.

Many Western countries took the top spots, but Japan was number 14. Rocketnews24 reported that America’s baldness rate was more than double that of Japan’s.

Yoshiko Nakagawa, a Japanese nutritionist, believes Japan’s male baldness rate is so much lower as a result of the consumption of the popular Japanese curry dish. Nakagawa explained to Asagei that the mixture of spices found in Japanese curry helps to encourage hair growth (translated from Japanese):

“There’s a secret in the spices Indian people use to make their curry. By adding the mixed seasonings and spices into the curry, it increases your metabolism and hair growth. Especially turmeric, saffron, and nutmeg will enhance your hair growth.”

The spices in curry including turmeric, saffron, nutmeg and capsaicin, are believed to promote blood circulation and metabolism in the body.

While the theory isn’t proven, eating more curry doesn’t seem to be a bad idea.
