In certain kinds of salmon, especially farmed salmon, there is mercury. If you will type "mercury and hair loss" into the Google search bar, you will find many articles on this subject.when I consume salmon...I notice a lot more shedding.
People who are allergic to shellfish and red salmon are often allergic to Astaxanthin. Check out this web page - WebMD.Maybe salmon affects my thyroid, maybe I am allergic to astixantin.
Astaxanthin is one of the few supplements I take. I get the 5 mg softgels from Puritan's Pride. It's a powerful anti-oxidant and has many other health benefits too. Of course if you are allergic to it, don't take it or eat red salmon or shellfish.
On WebMD this is listed as a possible side effect: "Astaxanthin may hinder an enzyme called 5-alpha-reductase. As a result, it may keep testosterone from changing into the hormone DHT in the body." DHT is implicated in male and female pattern hair loss.
