It is known for helping maintain a healthy gut, but now scientists have found kimchi could be used to reverse hair loss.

But research shows a kimchi drink sold in South Korea helps thicken existing hairs and grow new ones within weeks.

但研究显示,韩国销售的一种泡菜饮品能在几周内使现有的头发变得浓密,并长出新头发。

Researchers at Dankook University near Seoul studied 23 men, some in the early stages of hair loss and others visibly thinning on top.

They were told to have a kimchi drink before breakfast and at bedtime.

研究人员要求他们在早餐前和睡前各饮用一杯泡菜饮品。

After a month, the average number of hairs had risen from about 85 per sq cm of scalp to 90, and then 92 after four months of drinking the liquid.

The scientists said this was a significant increase that appeared to have reversed hair loss in most of the men.

科学家表示,发量出现显著的增加,似乎逆转了大部分参与研究男性的脱发。

In a report on the findings, published in the World Journal of Men’s Health, the researchers said: ‘Current drugs can have adverse effects so their use is usually temporary.

研究结果发表在《世界男性健康期刊》上,研究人员指出:“目前的药物可能有副作用,所以通常只是短期使用。”
