The Benefits of Biotin for Hair Loss

The Benefits of Biotin Supplements for Hair Loss and Thinning

Being uncomfortable or unhappy with your hair can make day-to-day life difficult or even impossible. Hair loss, thinning hair or hair which simply doesn’t have the bounce it used to have can be detrimental to your wellbeing. Finding hair loss treatments, supplements for hair and perhaps changing your lifestyle can make all the difference. Living with hair loss or dull, lifeless hair can knock your self-confidence. Still, here we’re looking at just how beneficial Biotin supplements can be for your hair and how to incorporate Biotin into your vitamin routine to support hair growth.


What is Biotin?

Biotin is the common name for Vitamin B7 and is an essential b vitamin for its health-encouraging and immune system building properties. Including additional Biotin in your diet can be achieved via food alone, but it has become a lot more common to reap the benefits of a Biotin supplement too. Biotin is in a range of foods, including liver, cauliflower, salmon, carrots, bananas, soy flour, yeast, wheat germ, whole-grain cereals, whole wheat bread, eggs, dairy products, nuts, Swiss chard, and chicken. It is also found in the bowels. The main role of biotin in our bodies is to metabolise the carbohydrates we take in and transform them into energy. It also helps the function of the central nervous system.  We’ve discussed the science behind biotin for hair and its make-up more in-depth here.

A well-managed and varied diet can ensure you get the 150mcg recommended daily allowance you require, however many people like to take Biotin in supplement form, particularly those with biotin deficiencies, to help ensure you always meet these levels and give the reassuring dose of Biotin daily to keep your hair in peak condition. Biotin’s reputation for promoting hair health, growth and strength means keeping your RDA up is vital.



How Does it Work & How Can Biotin Help with Hair Regrowth? 

A water soluble vitamin, Biotin stimulates keratin production in hair and can also help increase follicle growth rate. There are more and more products produced for topical application, including biotin, but for it to be properly effective, it needs to be consumed.

Hair and nails are formed primarily from keratin. This is why biotin effectively increases hair strength and volume and helps to boost hair growth. Biotin can make your hair grow by stimulating the body’s natural keratin production. An integral part of the Vitamin B family, Biotin also helps to support scalp health and nourishes the hair follicles to promote hair growth.

Other types of hair loss biotin can help with;

Benefits of Biotin for Male Hair Loss

Biotin deficiency can be a cause of male hair loss. Finding the right hair loss supplements can help prevent or reverse the impact of biotin deficiency and therefore hair thinning.  Biotin for hair loss in men can help give your body a boost in vitamin intake and promote improved keratin production. While you may be looking for an instant solution, hair growth is a slow process, and biotin can be used to help encourage healthy growth for long-lasting results. However it is a better choice for improving the hair’s condition or improving damaged or thin hair. For significant hair loss prevention, we’d always recommend Ginkgo Biloba B+.

Benefits of Biotin for Thinning Hair

People whose hair is thinning and weaker than they’d like can certainly benefit from the Biotin Hair Care Plan. Taking biotin supplements helps strengthen your existing hair and encourages further hair growth. Biotin supplements may also help to improve protein protection which can help boost and maintain keratin levels in the body. As we age, keratin leaves our bodies much more quickly, and our hair can become brittle and thin. Biotin supplementation can help to minimise the impact of ageing on your hair.

Benefits of Biotin for Coloured Hair

Anyone who colours their hair regularly knows how brittle and dry it can become. Finding ways to combat this dryness is vital if you want to avoid your hair snapping and losing even more condition and life. Biotin not only triggers hair growth but promotes hair health and strengthens the follicles and hair itself. Coloured hair looks fantastic but needs to be well-maintained, and this means considering your hair’s condition as well as regularly topping up your colour.


What Are the Other Health Benefits of Biotin?

Biotin is a great addition to your vitamin intake for your hair, but it also has many other health benefits that make it worthwhile.

Other benefits of biotin include:

Promotes healthy immune system

Biotin is vital for generating the body’s white blood cells. White blood cells are known to boost the body’s immunity; a vitamin b and biotin deficiency can lead to problems with your immune system.

Improves Energy Levels

An essential vitamin, the main role of biotin is to improve the body’s metabolism and metabolic rate. Biotin uses the fats, carbohydrates, and proteins your body intakes in the metabolic process and converts it into the energy you need.

Alleviate eczema, dermatitis and other skin conditions, including scalp

Research has yet to confirm exactly how biotin improves skin health, but people with biotin deficiencies often experience scaly rashes, sore scalp and dry skin conditions. Increasing their biotin levels can help to alleviate these problems.

Improving nail health

Brittle nails can split or crack without notice. As biotin is known to improve keratin production and our nails are made of keratin, it can be instrumental in improving nail health.




Improves brain functions and memory

Our brains need biotin to form the myelin sheath, vital to protecting our brains from various problems. Regular levels of biotin are also crucial for regulating brain function.


What Other Things Can I Do to Help with Hair Regrowth?

Biotin for hair growth will make a difference, but there are other things you can do to promote hair regrowth and improve your hair’s condition. If you are looking for ways to improve your hair’s condition, consider:

Following a Healthy Diet & Regular Exercise

Following a balanced diet and getting regular exercise does wonders for all aspects of your health, including your hair. Improving your body’s intake of important nutrients such as healthy fats like omega-3s will positively impact your hair’s health and even kickstart hair growth.


Reduce Stress & Anxiety

Stress is one of the leading causes of hair loss, so finding effective ways to alleviate the stress and anxieties in your life is important. Finding ways to relieve stress and pinpoint your triggers and stressors can positively impact your hair health. Daily meditation and looking into mindfulness and other activities can help to actively reduce the stress in your life, and your health may reap the rewards.
