Diet chart for Vitiligo patients:
The ascorbic acid in citrus fruits tends to reduce melanin pigmentation. So the vitiligo patients are restricted to take the citrus foods. Non vegetarian food is also to be avoided as they act as a foreign body to pigment cells & animal protein could reduce repigmentation rate. It is better to avoid even the milk and milk products to some extent as the milk protein may decrease repigmentation rate. Chickpeas (black/red gram or desichana), Greens and Red Radish, Beetroots, Carrots and Black dates may be taken. These are helpful in coverage of a white patch.
