Biotin can help grow healthier and stronger hair.
Biotin is vital to cell proliferation, which is why it is a valuable tool in hair growth. When ingested, biotin reacts with cell enzymes and plays a vital part in producing amino acids, which are the building blocks of protein. Hair itself consists of keratin, which is a form of protein and it is thought biotin improves the keratin infrastructure.
Consuming foods that contain biotin helps to contribute to hair growth.
Food sources with the most significant amounts of biotin include nuts (especially peanuts and almonds), egg yolks, soybeans and fish. Other sources include whole-wheat bread, cheddar cheese, pork, avocado, raspberries and cauliflower. These foods also are associated with other beneficial vitamins for hair growth, including vitamins A and B6.
The general daily recommended dosage of biotin is 2.5 mg (or 2,500 mcg)
