All over the world, full and luscious well-groomed hair can be appreciated by both men and women. For those women and men who have an issue with their hair, they can always be on the lookout for tips and tricks for better hair growth.
However, many women and men can be oblivious to the fact that hair loss could be due to the interaction of testosterone, dehydroepiandrosterone (DHEA)-hormones, and the enzyme Dihydrotestosterone (DHT) whose actions can cause hair loss.
They may also not know that three major things are needed for hair growth. These are but not limited to proper and daily hair care, low-stress levels on the hair and person, and eating the right foods with the right vitamins. It is often found that these three factors are rarely ever in balance especially as some people have unhealthy eating habits and are under constant stress.
What then can be done?
Aside from the obvious tip that eating and diet should be monitored, you can now start eating foods rich in Biotin.
What is Biotin?
Biotin, also known as Vitamin B7 or Vitamin H, is a water-soluble B-complex vitamin which can be found and subsequently taken whether in food or as supplements. There has been evidence of hair improvement in men and women following biotin consumption.
Where can I find Biotin?
Apart from Biotin presence in supplements, it can also be found in an abundance of food such as: Baker’s yeast, banana, cauliflower, cheddar cheese, cooked eggs, cooked salmon, egg yolk, fish, mushrooms, nuts (peanuts, almond nuts, and walnuts), raspberries, soybeans and whole-wheat bread.
There is an abundance of biotin in nature. As such, those who incorporate a lot of these meals into their diets should have healthy hair, if other factors are also at par.
What if I’m not taking Biotin?
Although it doesn’t happen frequently, Biotin deficiency leads to alopecia (hair thinning) and hair discoloration. Although biotin deficiency rarely occurs in most people, nursing mothers and those who take a daily consumption of raw egg whites (which contain avidin, a protein that obstructs biotin absorption) experience biotin deficiency.
How does Biotin work?
Biotin is a vitamin that influences cell growth. It is vital to cell proliferation and helps in the synthesis of amino acids which is needed for protein synthesis. Your hair is primarily made up of keratin, an amino acid, it can be concluded that Biotin is needed for keratin production for natural hair growth.
Other benefits of Biotin usage include:
