HEALTH NOTES: Egg scientists crack hair loss as medical experts believe compound stimulates protein and acts as a growth stimulation agent

An egg a day may keep hair loss at bay, according to dermatologists in Japan. A series of studies, in which human hair follicles were implanted into mice, found that egg yolk stimulated the growth of new human hair cells.

The research, published in the Journal Of Medicinal Food, revealed a compound in egg yolk which, when applied or taken orally, stimulated a protein called vascular endothelial growth factor, crucial for hair-cell repair and growth.

Study authors said the egg compound could be a ‘hair-growth stimulation agent’.
