I am wondering if there any current links between supplementation of Vitamin D and potential hair issues. I am looking to try to minimize my acne and supplement with 2000 IU Vitamin D daily.
I also found an old study dating to 1937 entitled “Vitamin D in Acne” [PDF file]. In the study, I noticed a mention that “Three patients with alopecia areata grew their hair without other treatment” except supplementation with Viosterol (pre-Vitamin D). Is this method ever used today to ever treat hair disorders??
The thing about alopecia areata is that even with NO treatment, the hairs usually grow back in a substantial number of patients, so I really cannot comment on the 3 patients that grew their hair back.
I do not know of any vitamin or pre-vitamin treatments for hair loss that works, and I suspect that in the 74 years since that study was conducted, if there was some actual evidence that it worked, it would be a common treatment by now.
