The Facts About Biotin and Hair Loss

Updated on September 17, 2009

If your hair is thining or disappearing, you need to read this!

Hair loss is a big concern for both men and women. You are about to discover the facts about biotin and if it could be a part of your problem! You may be able to avoid going bald or having a receding hair line.

Let's start with what biotin is. It is a B vitamin that is needed for the formation of glucose and fatty acids. It also helps with the metabolism of fats, proteins, and carbohydrates. Biotin is found in such foods as mushrooms, legumes, sardines, egg yolks, carrots, bananas, peas, salmon, cauliflower, liver and brewers yeast to name a few. It mostly makes up the hair and nails.

Biotin is not made or stored by the body. Therefore you must have a daily intake. If you eat raw eggs or take medication for heartburn, this could cause you to have a deficiency. Also people with blood type A have a harder time absorbing it.

If you have a biotin deficiency you may notice a skin rash, hair loss, high cholesterol, or even heart problems.

If you fall into these categories, you should take a biotin supplement. Our recommended supplement for hair loss is Provillus. It not only has biotin, but many other things that are needed for natural hair growth.
