Premature white hair

I am a 25 years old boy who is vegetarian but eats eggs and I am noticing plenty of white hairs on my head and beard lately. I heard that it is due to the deficiency of vitamin B12 which is not found in any vegetarian diet. A doctor said Cobadex czs is a good supplement for Vitamin B12 but according to the ingredients of it , the tablet contains more of folic acid than cobalamin. Is this tablet enough for my daily B12 intake to prevent white hair?

It may be genetical if your father had white hair.

White hair at young age can be genetic. There are claims to treat or prevent white hair. B12 and folic acid is  a general  viamin preparation. You cannot be sure of the result.You may have to try several treatments to achieve your goal. No one can forecast the duration of time to achieve the cure..
