Biotin… The ‘Hair Growth’ Vitamin

As you get older, are you noticing your hair is thinning out? Here may be a solution to help. Biotin is most often thought of as the “hair growth vitamin.” It is an essential water-soluble B vitamin. Biotin has come to be known for its role in the health and beauty of hair, skin and nails. It promotes healthy hair growth and protects against dryness. It also increases the elasticity of the hair’s cortex, thus preventing breakage. However, biotin also has other uses. It is involved in carbon dioxide transfer and therefore essential to the metabolism of carbohydrate and fat. Biotin can be found in beans, breads, cauliflower, egg yolks, fish, kidney, legumes, liver, meat, dairy products, nuts, oatmeal, oysters, peanut butter, poultry, and whole grains. If you are deficient in biotin, you can also take a supplement.
