A well-balanced diet is very essential for healthy body and healthy mind. As we all know that protein is known as “building blocks of the body”. This essentially means that for growth and repair of tissue, we need protein.

Let us see what happens if protein deficiency happens. Protein deficiency generally leads to loss of muscle mass, skin becomes flaky & dry, brittle nails and dry or brittle hairs.

All tissues require proteins to grow and hair shaft is essentially made of protein called keratin. So, in severe protein deficiency one can notice hair thinning or hair loss.
