What is the best brand and name of a prenatal vitamin for extreme hair growth?

You can buy any brand online. See http://drrandybaker.com/2014/01/ for more info on what to look for. My favorite multivitamin is UltraNutrient by Pure Encapsulations. ORAC Energy Greens is my favorite food supplement. ...Read more
