View Full Version : Folic acid ?

November 1st, 2009, 01:31 PM
While studying what vits are best for hair growth, I came across some folic acid info. I know folic acid is recommended for pregnant women, but didn't know it was good for growing hair. Hmmmn.

Has anyone here ever taken folic acid? What results did you get with it? :)

I've been taking prenatals for 3 months now and I *think* they are increasing my hair growth. Not sure if that is the folic acid or the other vitamins and minerals though. :)

Yeah I've been on folic acid. I'm not sure if it did anything for my hair though, because this was back in my "dye blonde" period, since I didn't like that it darkened.

I personally haven't tried folic acid. My mother teaches Lamaze-type classes, and she always warns her moms that they may notice their hair "thinning" once they stop taking their prenatal vitamins. She says the extra vitamins and minerals will make your hair thicker. Don't know how true it is, since I have a hard enough time remembering my allergy pills, let alone a vitamin or biotin...*g*

I take folic acid as it's in my Veg1 daily supplement for vegans, but I can't say I've noticed any difference.

I take folic acid, but have never noticed anything... Still, the amounts in multi vits and the like aren't particularly high.
