Getting enough Vitamin B5 and biotin is essential to prevent hair loss, and retard baldness in older men. The formula is also effective for women suffering from a loss of pigmentation and/or alopecia, and children with pelada.
Vitamin B5 is destroyed by alcohol and caffeine, so if you want to keep your hair you should reduce your intake of these substances. Certain medications (contraceptive and sleeping pills, sulfonamides) also destroy Vitamin B5. A deficiency will cause alopecia.
The recommended daily dosage is about 10 milligrams. Larger doses of between 10 and 100 milligrams can be taken in case of a deficiency.
Vitamin B8 (biotin) and B6 are both associated with the skin and hair. They are present in all foods containing B-complex vitamins, including brewer’s yeast, which is your best natural source of B vitamins.
