Fact or Myth. Does Biotin Really Help With Hair Growth?

If you haven’t heard of the vitamin supplement Biotin then you must have been living under a rock for
the last several years. If you are unfamiliar let me get you up to speed. According to webmd.com “Biotin
is a vitamin. It is found in small amounts in many foods such as eggs, milk, or bananas. Biotin is
commonly used for hair loss, brittle nails, nerve damage, and many other conditions.” Biotin is also
referred to as B complex vitamins or vitamin H.

Many doctors claim that the vitamin can be used to help one grow healthier and stronger nails, hair and
skin. Dr. Richard Scher, a dermatologist, known for his expertise on nail care and disorders. Proclaims
that it isn’t totally clear what role biotin plays or how much it effects the body. However, he has stated
that taking the vitamin does improve the keratin infrastructure, which is a basic protein that is found in
our hair, skin and nails. That close enough for me lol I’ll take it.

While we cannot turn to Biotin as some kind of miracle fix, taking Biotin can help you with maintaining
healthier looking hair, skin and nails. Taking Biotin has been known to prevent your hair and nails from
becoming, dry, dull and brittle. They also claim that taking this nutrients on a regular bases can help to
promote thicker and fuller hair. And who doesn’t want that? I know I do!

 

Fact or Myth. Does Biotin Really Help With Hair Growth?

Although this may sound like a dream vitamin, you still should be careful of the usage or dosage of the
supplement. To get the full effect the recommend amount is to take at least 240 mcg of Biotin for hair
growth daily (80% of the recommended daily allowance). The last thing we need on our hands is a biotin
supplement overdose. Which can result in side effect such as skin rashes, high blood sugar levels, slower
release of insulin, and lower vitamin C and B6 levels.
As with any new supplemental regimen you should consult with your doctor before diving in. Especially
if you have any medical conditions such as diabetes, heart problems or pregnancy / breast feeding.
If you have used biotin to help with hair and/or nail growth, let me know how its working out for you.
