Signs of biotin deficiency are hair loss and scaly, red, itchy skin. Deficiency cases are rare because our daily diet provides us with the benefits we need.
No one said you can’t have extra biotin to increase the benefits. Or increase the pace of the benefits you are already getting. For those interested, read the article to find out how biotin works. And how can you add more to daily intake.
Our hair, nails and skin are made of a protein called keratin. Biotin is known to make/reconstruct keratin structures. Other than this, there is ongoing research on what else does biotin do.
Research data on effectiveness of biotin for hair is limited. There is limited proof that more biotin means faster hair growth.
In a 2015 study, some women were given marine protein supplements. That had biotin and placebos in them. After 90 days of supplements and hair washing to count the fallen strands. It was concluded that the women with extra supplements in their diet regrew hair.
Biotin has two key roles. First is that it helps to convert food into energy. When we digest properly, we will receive the nutrients we need for growth. Second is the synthesis of amino acids and production of new proteins.
As we mentioned earlier, hair is made from the protein keratin. Biotin makes new protein via amino acids. They damaged cells and other protein structures. The binding makes your hair stronger and last longer.
Proper digestion ensures delivery of nutrients and minerals. When your follicles receive iron, zinc, oxygen, proteins and vitamins, they become healthier. This prevents the production and/or inhibition of DHT.
Every nutrient and mineral contributes to hair and follicle health. This is done either directly or indirectly. Biotin starts chain reaction in your body that releases essential nutrients and energy.
Since biotin deficiency is rare, the Food and Drug Administration never published a precise intake amount. Recommended Dietary Allowance varies person to person. Based on factors like age, gender and fitness/health status.
Nutritionists suggested a safe guideline that you can follow. Anyone between the age of 10 and 30 can have 100mcg daily. After 30 you can ask your doctor for a portion increase.
Pregnant women and feeding mothers need a higher dose. Talk to your doctor about taking biotin. The will tell you how much you need and for how long.
And they will guide you on how to safely increase the dosage. This way you will receive the maximum benefits.
The maximum potential of biotin is still being explored. But this does not mean the known benefits are any less important. Here is a list of things that happen from taking it
Normally we can get biotin from the food we eat. But if you want to boost your intake, you can add these foods to your diet.
Ask anyone for ways to get more biotin and they will say “food”. You dont need to be a medical expert to suggest that. Eating more biotin and letting it work from the inside is the best way.
To boost progress from the outside, use a biotin based hair product. We advise you use the biotin conditioner from Regenepure. It gets better, there are other potent ingredients that work to make biotin more effective. Use the DR and NT shampoo in alternate with the conditioner. The shampoos nourish and clean the scalp. So biotin can start working directly. We have the 90 days supplement in the complete hair restore kit for both men and women.
