As I have been with candida for two years, I already have experience with my symptoms.
One of them is severe hairloss. The only thing that stopped it in the pas was a full glass everyday of fresh juce made from carrots.
Now, after being in this forum, I understand the reason for this could be Biotin Defficiency.
I also understand I must not include carrots in my strict diet :((
As from yesterday I’ve started Daily Vits of NOW Foods and the label reg.
Biotin Contents shows: Amount Per Serving: 300 mcg, % Daily Value: 100 %
My question is if this is enough to stop my hairloss or I should take Biotin in addition
/and if so, in what dose ?/June 24, 2013 at 3:55 pm #106663

I don’t know how much biotin you’ll need to stop hair loss, but you should go easy with it at first, since it’s also an antifungal.June 24, 2013 at 7:29 pm #106677

I have hair loss and it has nothing to do with biotin levels from my experience. It has more to do with genetics and mineral levels.

Hair loss is a normal symptom of a Candida albicans overgrowth and not necessarily a biotin deficiency. However, most people who have a Candida overgrowth need to take extra biotin to fight the infection. Read the post below for more information.

Thanks for the comments.
I thought it’s biotin defficiency since carrot juice stops hairloss even when I am with Candida. And I’ve read Carrots are the natural source of Biotin.

I’ve been battling hair loss since I was a teen. Recently I went to a holistic doctor who recommended I take 500 mcg of Biotin daily. I’ve been on it for about 3 weeks, no results yet.
A few years ago I took Lexapro for anxiety and my hair was falling out in chunks! It may be your meds. When I weaned myself off the Lexapro the hairloss stopped.June 27, 2013 at 4:44 am #106824
I started taking Biotin maybe 4 days ago and already my hairloss significantly decreased.
The reason for your hairloss could be different from Biotin defficiency as you have no results for three weeks already.
