    With their study published in the World Journal of Men’s Health, the researchers revealed that using a special kimchi drink on a regular basis actually reversed hair loss and promoted hair growth in the test subjects.

    “Current drugs can have adverse effects so their use is usually temporary. We found kimchi could promote hair growth and reverse baldness. It is a safer treatment strategy for patients,” the researchers reported.

    Methodology and results

    Kimchi is a Korean dish comprised of fermented cabbage with spices, fish sauce, onions, and garlic. The reddish food item might not be appealing to many, especially because it is spicy, but it is a popular side dish in South Korea.

    A total of 23 men participated in the study, with varying stages of hair loss from the early stages to those with visibly thinning tops.

    At the baseline, the researchers counted an average of 85 hairs per square inch of scalp. After 1 month of regular intake of the kimchi drink, the researchers noted a visible increase in the subjects’ hair count to 90 hairs per square inch of scalp.

    After 4 months of continued regular intake, the hair count grew to 92 hairs per square inch of scalp.

    Considering that current hair loss drugs have side effects, the researchers claimed that kimchi would be an excellent alternative because based on their study, the kimchi drink significantly increased the hair count with regular use but the subjects did not report adverse effects.
