I’ve started taken Biotin. Biotin is a coenzyme and a B vitamin, also known as vitamin H. It’s a supplement for healthy skin, hair and nails. Being a natural girl, I figured I’d add this vitamin in my diet to improve the health and length of my hair. It supports the health of the skin, nerves, digestive tract, metabolism, and cells. Biotin is most often thought of as the “hair growth vitamin.” Biotin has come to be known for its role in the health and beauty of Hair, Skin and Nails. It promotes healthy hair growth and protects against dryness. It also increases the elasticity of the hair’s cortex, thus preventing breakage. In addition to my current hair regimen and my biotin intake… my hair should be strong and down my back right? *giggles* It’s still important to manually take care of your hair, skin and nails. You can mistreat these areas and take a pill and think its all going to be okay… You must put in work and time to nurture your skin, your hair and your nails to see the best benefits from any method.
Biotin can be found in food sources such as beans, breads, cauliflower, egg yolks, fish, kidney, legumes, liver, meat, dairy products, nuts, oatmeal, oysters, peanut butter, poultry, and whole grains, so there isn’t a need to take biotin supplements if your diet is already rich in these foods.
