    vitamin D for hair loss?

    Anyone here read the article recently about Vitamin D being the "cure" for baldness? I'm just checking what's your take on this? I always thought vitamin D was for bones and so on. The article mentioned about possibly having a cure for baldness 2 years from now, and it's derived from vitamin D enzymes etc.

    I have not. I know Vitamin E is beneficial, which is why we usually recommend our toco8 for it.

    Taking vitamin D supplements isn't going to do shit for your hair line.

    I know Vitamin E to be for skin mostly. What is toco8?

    I originally saw the article on yahoo news about vitamin D. I lost it but looked it up and came across it on another website here:

    ok thanks for this. I hope to mix this with my protein shakes. I thought you were talking about plain vitamin E which I already do have in my multi vitamin, which is 200 IUs per 3 tablets. Not sure if that was enough. I tried a product called Superior Hair - http://www.bestvite.com/search.aspx?find=superior+hair

    I'm neutral about that product.

    Did some search about Folic Acid being good for hair as well. Not sure about dosing or if what came with my multi vitamin is good enough.

    Generally multis are rather low dose if you need a specific vitamin for a certain benefit. Vitamin E is the worst offender, because it consists of one isomer of vitamin E, and not the spectrum.

    I've been trying out the Toco 8 for the last few days. Not sure if this is causing some weird feelings, and some chest pains. I read vitamin E can onset problems, but so do everything else when overdosing. If I'm not mistaken vitamin E can cause a heart attack? Or is it way off? I thought I heard about it in the news a few years back. I googled some info. on vitamin E and found that it has no real benefits, not much greater than getting some sunshine. I'd like to continue to use Toco 8 product for the hair benefits that it promised though.

    Re: vitamin D for hair loss?

    Wasn't toco 8 debunked a long time ago?

    And as far as I know there is nothing in it known to combat hair loss

    What would be debunked about a vitamin supplement?
