 Biotin Made My Hair Grow!
 
What’s all the fuss about? People everywhere are saying “wow” I think my hair is growing. Biotin can be found in many products on the market today, you find it in health food stores or shampoo’s and conditioners. It can even be found in vitamin supplements. So what is it? Biotin is one of the B vitamins; it plays a role in a number of body processes. Its name comes from the Greek word bios-meaning life; this nutrient aids the body in metabolizing fats, protein, and carbohydrates from food. It has a special role in enabling the body to use blood sugar, a major source of energy for body fluids. Biotin helps produce certain enzymes.

Some adults have a deficiency of biotin, but this is rare because it’s found in so many foods, like whole wheat, soy products, and cauliflower just to name a few. How ever when low levels do occur, it causes problems like, brittle nails and lackluster hair can develop. Biotin supplements have help in some cases. Multivitamins and B-complex vitamins contain biotin, and it is also available as an individual supplement.

Biotin is a water-soluble vitamin that our bodies require due to its involvement in carbohydrate, protein, and fat metabolism. Biotin is a cofactor in a wide variety of enzymatic reactions. It also helps form and maintain chemical structures called crosslink, the main protein found in hair and nails. Crosslink’s helps to promote hair and nail strength.

Biotin contributes to healthy skin and hair, and may play a role in preventing hair loss. Diabetics can also benefit from Biotin. Besides hair loss, a deficiency of biotin can cause eczema, dermatitis, skin disorders, heart and lung problems, anemia, fatigue, depression, muscle pain, conjunctivitis, high blood cholesterol, loss of appetite and nausea.

Universities have researched biotin and have been found to block DHT. It can be taken orally,
