Biotin has been widely praised within the beauty industry and beyond for its ability to improve and strengthen our hair, skin and nails. But before adding it to your shopping cart, let’s have a look at how it works, its overall benefits, and how a biotin supplement can help you get your hair, skin, nails + looking their best.
Intro to Biotin
Biotin is a part of the B vitamins family and is essential for our metabolic and nervous systems; it helps our bodies process sugars, fats and proteins - converting them into usable energy. It’s also a water-soluble vitamin that our body cannot store, which is why we need to consume it regularly in our diet to properly account for it in our system.
Thankfully, biotin can easily be found in everyday foods like eggs, meat, fish, nuts and seeds as well as in over-the-counter supplements like our Haitian Moringa Vitamins & Supplements Powder + Mask.
Biotin and our Skin
Because our skin is both our largest organ and vulnerable to environmental pollutants, it constantly needs to regenerate and shed those toxins. - Biotin aids in the formation of fatty acids which participate in this needed skin cell regeneration. Therefore, when there is a biotin deficiency, we are more likely to experience acne, pimples, and blackheads, exhibit dry skin, or even break out in a rash. On the flipside, with sufficient daily consumption of biotin, the skin will be softer, healthier and appear more youthful.
Biotin and our Hair
Our hair is made up of a protein known as keratin. When our hair follicles are weak or damaged, or when we have a vitamin or mineral deficiency, our hair follicles will inevitably become weak and produce less hairs. Biotin improves the body’s keratin infrastructure and, as you already know, it also helps convert proteins into energy; this process can help stimulate hair growth by strengthening
the hair follicles. Therefore, if we treat our bodies to a balanced diet, with the right nutrients and minerals, including this ever-important and impactful biotin, we can experience healthier and more voluminous hair growth.
Biotin and our Body
Biotin’s health impact goes beyond just beauty and our skin, hair and nails – our entire body reaps the benefits from maintaining sufficient daily consumption of biotin.
- helps break down carbohydrates more readily, which can help in weight loss
- ensures our immune system is functioning as it should
- is a crucial nutrient during pregnancy, important for embryonic growth
- can balance out our blood sugar levels
