Glucosamine, eg Dona, is allowed on the medical card when prescribed by a doctor.

Hair, skin, and nails
Nutritional deficiencies can contribute to increased hair loss by weakening hair shafts that cause breakage to the hair and slow regrowth. Hair problems caused by nutritional deficiencies can be corrected by a good diet. Of all nutrients that benefit hair growth, biotin has the biggest impact. It is found in food sources such as eggs and liver. If someone has thinning or damaged hair; a biotin supplement is a good choice.
