I sing the praises of Movember and my Oncologist tributes their education resources to my quick action and diagnosis. This lead to me kicking cancer in the nuts at stage 1 and not needing further treatment.
This year I am doing Movember again and Captaining The SXMoC. The team of champs from www.sxoc.com.

Here are some growing stimulating vitamins for you Mobros out there.
Vitamin A: This vitamin stimulates the production of sebum, which keeps your hair follicles and skin hydrated—important for keeping hair healthy looking. You can find it in eggs, meat, cheese, liver, carrots, pumpkin, broccoli, and dark green leafy vegetables.
Vitamin C: Not only is it good for boosting your immune system, it keeps your hair and skin healthy too. Citrus is the standby for natural vitamin C, and you can also find foods such as green peppers, dark green vegetables, potatoes, and tomatoes rich in vitamin C.
Vitamin E: This has long been recognized as key for healthy skin, and can increase blood flow—leading to an optimal environment for hair growth. Foods rich in vitamin E include oils, leafy vegetables, nuts, and beans, and most people get plenty of vitamin E when eating a normal diet. Topical applications can also be beneficial.
Vitamin B3: This also helps boost circulation, which may have a positive effect on hair grown. Reports find that B3 is even more effective when taken with biotin. You can find vitamin B3 in beef, chicken, fish, and wheat germ.
Vitamin B5: Also known as pantothenic acid, B5 not only helps the body use fats and proteins, necessary for healthy hair, it also has been reported to help reduce stress; and stress can definitely inhibit hair growth. It occurs naturally in brewer’s yeast, broccoli, avocado, egg yolks, organ meats, duck, milk, lobster, whole-grain breads, and more.
Folic acid. This vitamin can help promote thicker hair, and is necessary for the growth and repair of hair. It can be found in whole-grain breads and cereals, leafy green vegetables, peas, and nuts.
Biotin: Increase your biotin intake. Biotin is an important water-soluble B vitamin, necessary for the the formation of fatty acids and glucose, as well as for metabolizing amino acids and carbohydrates. A biotin deficiency can lead to hair loss, so making sure you are getting the recommended amount is well worth the effort. Normal recommended daily amounts of biotin range from 30 to 100 mcg.
