HairOmega® Supplements

How long do I have to take HairOmega™ before I will notice results?

Typically, a change in hair loss should be observed in 2-6 weeks and a change in hair growth should be observed between 2-6 months.

Is HairOmega® for women too?

HairOmega® is for both men and women! Women also have minute levels of testosterone in their bodies that can get converted to hair loss causing DHT. HairOmega® 3-in-1 has DHT Blockers as well as ingredients that help support hormonal balance in women as well as men.

Are there any side effects?

HairOmega® is well tolerated by most people. Please be aware that HairOmega® is a very comprehensive supplement and the main ingredient saw palmetto can sometimes cause indigestion. If that happens to you we recommend taking the product with food.


Why do you have so many B-vitamins in Hairomega® 3-in-1?

We have researched this issue extensively before formulating our products. B-vitamins are water soluble. This means that they are readily absorbed by the body and utilized or simply passed through the urine.


HairOmega® with provides you with the optimal amount of vitamins for hair growth. It is perfectly safe even though it has 400% of the Recommended Daily Allowance (RDA) of Vitamin B-6. According to the National Institutes of Health the upper limit (meaning maximum daily intake unlikely to cause adverse health effects) of Vitamin B6 in males is 100mg. HairOmega 3-in-1 has 8mg.


According to the University of Maryland Medical Center, no overdoses have been reported from B-1 or thiamin. For Vitamin B-2 the National Institutes of Health states that intakes of riboflavin many times the RDA have no observable toxicity.


If you have any further questions or concerns please don't hesitate to contact us.
