1. Foods rich in vitamin C

One of the causes of vitiligo is the melanin pigment generating function degenerated. Vitamin C is a reducing agent, it can interrupt the synthesis of melanin; in addition to this, it also can influence our intestinal tract to absorb copper ion, decrease the copper oxidase activity in the blood serum and influence the tyrosinase activity. So this kind of food you should avoid to eat or try to eat less such as hawthorn, cherry, kiwifruit, grapefruit, strawberry and so on.

2. Too sour or too spicy food

Vitiligo patients need pay special attention to this kind of food, these foods on the one hand can influence the uptake of the medicine used to treat vitiligo, also will make the skin appear pimple and fat even worsen the vitiligo disease on the other hand, so you should pay special attention to.

In addition to what I mentioned above you should avoid to eat too much, vitiligo patients also should eat more foods contains tyrosinase and mineral materials such as lean meat, eggs, milk and so, supply some trace mental elements you lack, increase the tyrosinase activity in our body, increase the melanin metabolism, this is helpful to the vitiligo treatment.
