The Importance Of Biotin

The Importance Of Biotin

Can biotin contribute towards having beautiful hair, glowing skin and strong nails?

Biotin belongs to the B vitamin family. Biotin is a B vitamin that helps your body turn food into energy and supports many vital functions. Whilst most people can get adequate amounts of biotin through the diet, others may require supplements to avoid deficiency. 

One thing we know for sure is that biotin is definitely a key player. Hair, skin and nails have a high cell turnover, meaning new cells are constantly needed to replace old ones. Biotin plays an important role in cell reproduction and is known to increase the rate of hair follicle growth and stimulate the production of keratin, an essential protein for building strong, healthy hair, nails and skin. 

A lack of biotin in the diet can lead to biotin deficiency, which can often cause hair loss, brittle nails and a red scaly rash. One study shows that supplements containing biotin help improve the infrastructure of keratin and increase hair growth in women with hair thinning. As biotin helps form essential fatty acids and provides energy for cells, it can also help improve skin hydration, smoothness and appearance, as well as nail strength and growth. 

In addition to contributing towards overall skin, hair and nail health, biotin also plays an important role in the nervous system, it is also believed to help regulate blood sugar levels in people with diabetes, and contribute towards brain health.
