When it comes to how much of each vitamin do you need for hair growth, that is when I like to discuss proper vitamin testing. (see below)
What B Complex is Good For Hair Loss?
The B Complex I like the best for hair loss is one with activated levels of B Vitamins. It also contains a spectrum of B vitamins to support adrenal, neurological, and stress-related functions.
A good B complex will also include folate as Quatrefolic, which has more excellent stability, solubility, and bioavailability over calcium salt forms of 5-MTHF.
An activated B complex will also support your nervous system and metabolism. This will help you to metabolize food better and have more energy and mental clarity.
B vitamins deliver oxygen throughout your body, supporting healthy hair growth.

Can a Blood Test Detect Hair Loss?
As a general rule when I run blood tests on clients with hair loss, these are the ones I run.
- Comprehensive, metabolic blood tests including thyroid, iron levels, pituitary, inflammation and much more.
- Saliva Hormones and Adrenals: tests the free or bio-availability of your true hormone levels.
- Intracellular Vitamin and Minerals: tests the functionality of your vitamins, not just the static levels in the blood.
BONUS: All test results come with a personalized protocol, so you know what to do.
You may be asking – when will my hair grow back? The answer may be simple – when your thyroid, hormones, and nutrient levels are working again.
