Brief Answer: All queries addressed sir Detailed Answer: Hello sir and welcome. Thank you for writing to us. I have gone through your query with diligence, and I would like to say that whey protein is good for bulking up, increasing stamina, and is good for increasing muscle mass and increasing weight. But, this is something that should be used for a short duration of time (approximately 6-12 months). 1. Yes, it is fine to use this once a day, but as mentioned earlier it should not be used for a long duration of time. Best for 6-12 months 2. I have gone through the contents of the supplement and I do not think any of these contents could cause hair fall. But in the long run, whey protein may lead to a change in consistency of hair, and result in hair fall, but only if used for a long duration of time 3. I have gone through the contents of 'Hair skin and Nails' and this is also a good supplement, that helps in building and development of muscle mass, improve absorption of the supplements, and correction of nutrients that can result in exhaustion, lethargy and laziness that you have been experiencing. As for the iron supplement, this is prescribed to help in promoting absorption, helps in preventing fatigue, provides you with increased energy levels, and also helps in maintaining good hair growth and health of your hair. I hope you find my response helpful and informative. Please feel free to write back to me for any further clarifications, I would be more than happy to help you. Best wishes.
