1. Vitamin D in Baldness

No scientific studies have yet to show any direct relationship between hair growth
and vitamin D. But observations suggest that a deficiency in it results in rickets which
can lead to baldness. In addition, lab studies with mice deprived of vitamin D result in
complete body hair loss.

Some experts believe that a deficiency in the vitamin when coupled with deficiencies
in the fatty acids that convert cholesterol into useful "good" cholesterol, baldness can
occur. While lack of vitamin D has not be proven to result in hair loss, having the right
levels can help maintain normal hair growth which is what is needed to neutralize
excessive hair loss.

2. Vitamin D Risks

Vitamin D is another fat-soluble vitamin that is not easily excreted by the body when
there's too much of it. It is fat-soluble and gets stored together with excess fat and
is known to exhibit toxicity levels that can harm the health of adults. Weight loss can
result and even hair loss. Vitamin D over production can get phosphate and excess
calcium deposited in some organs like the kidneys and other soft tissues that can
result in calcinosis.

It is rare that a person gets to overdose on vitamin D unless he eats a lot of cod liver
oil. Even over exposure to the sun doesn't result in vitamin overproduction in the skin
since the skin's melanin content regulates vitamin D production.
