Biotin -- also known as Vitamin B7

Biotin is also known as vitamin B7 and it is a water soluble vitamin which helps in the metabolism process. Apart from support in metabolic activities, biotin is crucial for cell growth and also for the prevention of hair loss.

Hence, many dermatologists emphasize on having food products that have vitamin B7 that would help us get good amount of biotin inside our body which would eventually resolve our hair loss problem naturally. Women who are pregnant and lactating would also require biotin that would help their body by maintaining the cell growth inside the body.

Biotin and hair growth
People suffering from problems like alopecia and other hair loss problems need to have biotin in their diet and therefore they should opt for food products like liver, meat, egg yolks and green vegetables.

This would help them recover from biotin deficiency and promote hair growth without any medical help or using synthetic medicines. Hair loss does not sound like a deadly problem but it has a more sociological effect. People who suffer from bald spots on their head often lose the confidence they had in themselves and start shirking away from people.

Biotin rich foods
  • Nuts (peanuts, almonds, etc…)
  • Tuna
  • Swiss Chard
  • Egg
  • Pork
  • Salmon
This will not only help you to get back your hair but also help you with other problems like acne and brittle nail.

Biotin is also used in various products related to hair like shampoos, conditioners, hair gels and hair styling creams.

Biotin and diabetes
Individuals with type 2 diabetes should also look into taking a biotin supplement. Consuming biotin in combination with chromium picolinate, a mineral found in certain foods, may help improve blood sugar levels.”
