The Secret of Healthy Hair: Biotin

Filed Under: Vitamins and Minerals at 6:06 pm | By: Mauricio Matusiak, Senior Editor
Healthy HairPeople take biotin supplements for many reasons but the most frequent use of this form of vitamin B is for strengthening of hair, skin and nails.

Biotin, or vitamin B7, is a water-soluble B-complex vitamin very important for the human body. Biotin deficiency leads to hair loss and may progress in severity to include loss of eye lashes and eye brows.

Natural hair loss products normally have high amounts of biotin, which in combination with an herbal blend, provide the most potent ingredients proven to strength and support hair growth. Similar formulas are used skin and nails supplements as well as cosmetic products.

Some companies use biotin in formulations of shampoos and conditioners. However, it’s debatable whether they would have any useful effect, as biotin is not absorbed well through the skin.

Natural sources of biotin include yeast, milk, chicken breasts, salmon, liver, egg yolk, and some vegetables, such as cauliflower and spinach. Most multi-vitamins carry biotin in their formulas, and the majority of B-Complex supplements will have a reasonable amount of biotin, (100-150 mcg) approximately 33%-50% of your daily needs.

In addition, biotin (also known as Vitamin H) promotes cell grown and helps with the metabolism, breaking down carbohydrates, proteins and fatty acids, maintaining steady blood sugar levels. Biotin is also a very reliable energy booster, minimizing stress and fatigue.

    I have thin and rare hair and I eat millet porridge for breakfast every day for about 1 year now, because millet contains Vitamin B and silica which is essential for strong hair and nails. And I have to say that my hair is stronger and thicker now.
