    Just picked up a bottle of these from a holland barrett shop (UK)

    It says on the label:

    Mega Vitamins for the hair provides essential nutrients to help your hair be its healthiest. The B vitamins are involved in the energy metabolism which is needed to maintain healthy hair. Biotin plays an important role in hair growth. Choline and Inositol are essential components in cell walls and therefore play a role in maintaining the growth and function of hair cells.

    You take 3 tablets a day, one with each meal.

    3 tablets contain:

    Beta Carotene 6mg
    Vitamin c 1000mg
    Thiamine (vitamin B1) 84mg
    Riboflavin (vitamin B2) 100mg
    Niacin 100mg
    Vitamin B6 81mg
    Folic acid 400mg
    vitamin b12 100mg
    biotin 2mg
    zinc 5mg
    l-cysteine 334mg
    PABA 100mg
    Inositol 500mg
    Choline 500mg
    Copper 2mg

    Seems a good package to me :D I will keep you posted on my results

    High five Lizzad!

    Yeah i took these for awhile, they wont do much of anything, no better whatsoever than taking a good multi-vitamin and you can take that to bank and deposit it!

    I take these H&B multi-vits if youre curious (i got them half-price):

    Sup zim, ty! I used to take Super One, now i just take ABC Plus, as i think most of the Super One just gets pissed away. I got 500 ABC Plus for £8.99, from H & B. :)

    Those vits for the Hair do have 2mg of Biotin which may help the hairs appearance. But vitamins will not prevent dht from kicking the ass of your hair follicles Turbo.

    You notice that Holland and Barret seemingly has a half price sale on every day of the bloody year now, except for stuff that you actually want to buy.

    There's some kind of sale on most of the year at the moment, switching products each time. I got 65% off the ABC Plus. Got some Tea Tree Shampoo half price too...it's ok. Whats the stuff you actually want tho?

    Vitamins for hair loss is junk science don't be fooled by these con artists like Shen min who say that it will stop and re-grow hair.

    Watch these people.

    If you order over the net or via phone thay send you leaflets every couple of months with offers that aren't in the shops.

    I've seen MSM half price (but H&B is expensive for msm anyhow). I've never seen l-arginine half price tho. As i said tho, the booklet you get in the post has more offers.

    Amen to that. Only vitamins that can really have benefit (but not stop hairloss) are MSM and Biotin.

    I smell a classic Lizzad/Zimmy thread hijack brewing.


    Zimmy those babies are fine, know them personally, but you really don't want to be pissing around with 150mg of vitamin C, that's for bummers and small women, 1-3g is more the daily figure you want to be going for, for health benifits, and C is best taken away from meals, same with zinc, same with selenium, whilst A, E and D are best taken with food, so you will always be choosing one group to compromise when deciding on when you take them, these sort of multis are always going to be a trade off, but H&B stuff is a world above those little multi things you get in boots and supermarkets.

    I personally 'hold no truck' (always wanted to use that phrase) with time release multis, What would drive any self respecting neurotic into spending extra money (they're generally more expensive) on time release A, D and E when, being fat soluble, these are stored in the body anyhow!!! whilst some people can utilise 2000mg of C in one go, trickling 150mg over a time release period would provide little benifit, I also can guarantee the Lysine in that pill will not get any futher than the inferno of the gastric swamp, but shockingly the Vit E is the rather expensive water solube 'succinate', swings and round abouts....

    oohhh, I could go on...
