Most are impatient when it comes to seeing results, especially when it relates to beauty and the condition of our hair. However, hair, skin and nails are constantly undergoing internal change from the state of our health to the type of nutrition that we follow daily. For that purpose, this is why something as simple as beefing up nutrition to ensure hair is fed the vitamins, notably biotin (B7) and minerals such as zinc that it needs can be all it takes to stop breakage, thinning and often hair loss.

Of course, other health conditions could be blamed for hair loss, thinning and breakage. Among these are ones such as a variety of problems with your endocrine glands, the menstrual cycle and loss of monthly blood to conditions like an auto-immune disorder such as rheumatoid arthritis or lupus. Even though hair loss from an autoimmune disease may not be common, it can still be the culprit because the medication to treat it can often be responsible.

You may be thinking that you tried eating a healthier protein rich diet. Perhaps, you even went so far to take supplements such as biotin without any success. Nonetheless, the body needs time to process that nutrition and adapt for those starving hair follicles to benefit. Three months of supplying the body with that essential nutrition that it lacked can do more than you know to help the hair. The reason increasing this vitamin matters so much is due to how it controls inflammation that can be the possible center of those hair troubles.

Another point to keep in mind is that aging also contributes to the look and health of the body and how nutrition is utilized. After all, aging causes hair follicles to slow down production while some others stop. Some people getting older also may gain weight easier so they eat less of the right foods for nutrition such as biotin to speed up the hair growing cycle. This is why supplementing with it and fortifying inadequate nutrition could help toward healthier hair.

Where should you look for your this nutrient? Naturally, it is always best to get vitamins and minerals through diet. A great source is egg yolk with 5 micrograms of this particular vitamin, cooked beef liver (31 micrograms) to others such as dairy, nuts and seeds, etc.

Just the same, each body has a different system to break down nutrition that can influence how much of it remains. You may find it helpful to reinforce that enriched diet by using a vitamin B7 supplement. The recommended dose is typically three milligrams. Regardless if this is water-soluble vitamin that won’t linger in your body, you also don’t want to overdo. I can’t stress the importance of only buying a supplement with some industry standard on the label before trusting it to your body. You may want to read my personal nightmare from what a supplement did to me.

The information shared here about biotin and strengthening nutrition is not meant to diagnose hair loss or thinning, but to guide you in the right direction.

    I will have to look into Biotin since I feel my hair is thinning a lot lately. I am glad I do eat nuts and eggs.
