Health Tip of The Week

The Use of Oral Vitamin Supplements to Promote Hair Growth

It should be noted that the use of nutritional supplements and herbs to treat not only hair loss, but a variety of medical conditions has become increasingly popular. There are a multitude of such products on the market today. Numerous reviews, both positive and negative, can be found. While some oral supplements have positive reports in social media and the lay press supporting their use to promote hair growth, it is important to note that many of those ingredients have not undergone clinical testing to prove their effectiveness. The FDA regards nutritional supplements as foods. Unlike FDA approved drugs, nutritional supplements do not have to prove their effectiveness and safety before becoming available to consumers.

A recent article in the medical journal, Dermatology (January, 2021) looked at the effectiveness of popular oral nutritional supplements on hair growth. The take-away message was that the researchers found no clinical evidence that biotin, niacin, vitamin A, vitamin D, selenium, curcumin or capsaicin were effective in treating hair loss. The review reported “mild evidence” to support the use of vitamin E, zinc, and the herb, horsetail. While the use of vitamin C and iron supplements appeared to be beneficial in patients with known iron deficiency, there was evidence that showed pumpkin seed oil and saw palmetto was helpful in the treatment of androgenic alopecia. Most importantly, the authors noted that the use of marine based nutritional supplements was effective in treating hair loss. They noted that AminoMar showed the strongest evidence to support increased hair counts. In comparison, the marine-based nutraceuticals Synergen Complex and Nourkrin also increased hair counts, but to a lesser degree.

In May 2018, researchers reported in the Journal of Drugs and Dermatology on a 6- month randomized, double-blind placebo-controlled study evaluating the effectiveness of the nutraceutical, Synergen Complex (Nutrafol). Their studies showed some effectiveness in promoting hair growth in women.

Researchers reported in the Journal of Cosmetic Dermatology (April, 2018) on the beneficial effects of a marine protein dietary supplement for treating hair loss. Their randomized, double–blind study reported that the oral marine supplements increased hair growth, increased diameter of hairs, and decreased hair loss in both men and women.

The medical journal, Clinical Aesthetic Dermatology (2012), reported a study where women with hair thinning took an oral nutraceutical consisting of proteins derived from sharks and mollusks, twice daily for 180 days and noted positive results.

In 2015, researchers reported in the journal, Dermatology Research and Practice on a 3–month randomized, double–blind, placebo–controlled study looking at the use of a marine-based protein supplement taken orally for hair loss. The proprietary blend of shark and mollusk powder was the key ingredient in this product (AminoMar). Other ingredients added to the AminoMar included horsetail, biotin, zinc, and acerola cherry (vitamin C). The authors reported that taking the proprietary supplement (Viviscal) twice daily showed positive results in increasing the diameter of hair shafts, increasing the number of hairs, and decreasing the number of hair lost in the women involved in this 3 month study.
