The Benefits of Biotin: how this humble vitamin can revitalise your hair and more

Discover how biotin can help to improve your health, beauty, and overall wellbeing.

B Vitamins, especially Biotin, play a vital role in keeping your skin, hair, eyes, liver, and nervous system healthy.

Biotin is involved in the breakdown of carbohydrates and production of glucose, which is needed for cell energy and tissue growth.

This is important for your hair because hair is the second fastest growing tissue in the body (right behind bone marrow), meaning it needs a lot of energy to grow stronger and longer.

Added to the benefits for your hair itself, biotin also boosts the activity of enzymes that break down fatty acids in sebum, a dandruff causing substance. In doing so, biotin targets scalp irritation and promotes a healthy scalp, which is essential for hair rejuvenation. In some cases, hair loss is a sign of a vitamin B deficiency, particularly a lack of biotin.

B vitamins are very helpful in improving your body’s response to stress and are particularly important for people who struggle with hair pulling. Biotin also improves your body’s keratin infrastructure and enhances collagen levels, both of which contribute to stronger hair, nails, and skin.

Biotin deficiency

Biotin deficiency can be caused by inadequate dietary intake or inheritance of one or more genetic disorders that affect biotin metabolism.

Whilst deficiency is rare, low biotin levels can negatively impact hair health, causing hair to be brittle, thin, and more prone to breakages.

It can also cause skin rashes, typically on the face, and weak nails. 

Biotin-rich foods to eat

Biotin-rich foods to eat

Biotin is water-soluble, which means the body doesn’t store it and you need to consume it daily to top up your required amount.

Fortunately, there are many different foods that are high in biotin. These include:

  • Dark leafy greens
  • Soybeans
  • Nuts, like almonds, pecans, and walnuts
  • Wholegrains
  • Bananas
  • Mushrooms
  • Egg yolks
  • Salmon
  • Organ meats like liver

Because food-processing techniques can render biotin ineffective, it’s important to eat these foods raw or with as little processing as possible for optimum benefits.
