Hair Loss (Definition)

Hair loss, otherwise known as alopecia, can be caused by different reasons, including damage to the hair shaft or follicles or fungal infections. There are two main types of alopecia.

I've started taking folic acid forte with b complex vitamins and vit c will this increase my chance of getting pregnant or am i wasting money?

I've started taking folic acid forte with b complex vitamins and vit c will this increase my chance of getting pregnant or am i wasting money?

More complicated...: It won't help you get pregnant, but it may help you be healthy so you are better able to sustain a healthy pregnancy. I recommend taking a supplement with activated folate (folic acid) rather than Folic Acid for trying to get pregnant.

Can I take 10,000 mcg biotin a day with stress b complex? Or not take the vitamin b complex

See below: The appropriate dose of biotin depends on several factors such as the user’s age, health, and several other conditions. At this time there is not enough scientific information to determine an appropriate range of doses for biotin. Keep in mind that natural products are not always necessarily safe and dosages can be important. Be sure to follow relevant directions on product labels and consult your pharmacist or physician or other healthcare professional before using. There is no recommended dietary allowance (RDA) established for biotin. The adequate intakes (AI) for biotin are 7 mcg for infants 0-12 months, 8 mcg for children 1-3 years, 12 mcg for children 4-8 years, 20 mcg for children 9-13 years, 25 mcg for adolescents 14-18 years, 30 mcg for adults over 18 years and pregnant women, and 35 mcg for breast-feeding women. ...Read more

I'm taking calcium with vitamin d in it, biotin, fish oil, daily multivitamin, power c, iron, and a birth control pill how should I properly take them?

I'm taking calcium with vitamin d in it, biotin, fish oil, daily multivitamin, power c, iron, and a birth control pill how should I properly take them?

See below: You can take these all together but iron is better absorbed on an empty stomach and C enhances its absorption so ideally take those on waking or near bedtime. The calcium/D, biotin, multivit. and BC pill can all be taken with or shortly after breakfast. While you could take fish oil with these it's ideal to take separately, perhaps with dinner. It is also ideal to take C 2x/day so take AM and PM. ...Read more
