Will Biotin Help Hair Loss

Showing Topics 1 - 20 of 37


WHAT IS YOUR EXPERIENCE WITH BIOTIN FOR FEMALE HAIR LOSS? ## I've no experience with it, but I can fill you in on the details. Biotin is a water soluble B vitamin and one of the signs of a deficiency in it is severe hair loss that progresses to include the loss of eyelashes and eyebrows in those that are severely deficient. Therefore, when looking for a reason for someone's hair loss and a way to rectify the situation, it is often the first therapy tried. However, it will only help if a deficiency in it is what is actually causing the hair loss. It is also used in many over the counter products to strengthen the hair and nails.

Biotin Forte helped hair growth and repair

I have found that Biotin Forte is a good vitamin if you want your hair to grow and repair. They use this Biotin Forte on Cancer patients, after surgeries and so on. It is usually $12.50 over the counter, and I've tried the Vitaline brand - 30 capsules @ 5 mg. Seemed to have positive results. ## Hello, Jenni! How are you? Yes, Biotin has been found to help with some type of hair loss, depending on what has caused the hair loss. Some people that lose hair due to stress or a vitamin deficiency get great results with it. The price varies, but it is available fairly inexpensively in most health and vitamin shops. When it comes to cancer patients, their hair will usually return on its own, once they are done with their treatment protocol. Are there any other questions or concerns? ...

I need to know if it's true that it helps offset the loss of hair some people experience(1/3 of hair some need wigs) and what are the dosages 10,000 mcs or mls plus Vit B complex and what vitamins/mineral supple ments? ## Biotin may help, but the only way to find out is for you to try it. However, you should always check with your doctor to make sure that it's safe for you to do so. You shouldn't exceed the dosage suggested by your doctor or on the product packaging. There is no proven supplement protocol that I can give you, I'm sorry, I wish there were.

Amlodipine 10mg Hair Loss

How can I stop hair loss due to taking Amlodipine 10mg? ## I would personally recommend natural alternatives to counteract it, that way there is no risk of having even more side effects associated with another prescription medication. I found that supplementing with liver pills is a great source of iron, biotin, and B-vitamins which help to keep hair strong and healthy. Another reliable option is supplementing with fish oil or hemp seed oil; particularly the omega 3 and 6 fatty acids are great for hair. One last option I would recommend is ceedarwood essential oil for stopping the hair from falling out. I urge you to google information about these products for not just hair health, but many other benefits as well. Please post back if you have any other questions or concerns... ...

Viibryd side effects and hair loss

36 year old female, 2 kids(5 yrs. & 10 mos.) Had terrible post pardum depression and anxiety attacks.
