Ok, this is a four months biotin hair growth report. In the last four months I have been taking biotin nonstop, one pill a day every day and I am seeing great results.
The reason why I am writing this is not only to tell everybody that biotin works but also I want to let you know one big secret that will help you see results with biotin: you need to be patient. This product does work, but it takes for it to get into your system and start to do what it needs to do for yourself.
I have been using biotin for the past four months and now I can say the biotin is actually working because I used to wear acrylic on my nails and I bite them off because I was tired of them and I didn’t want to go to a nail salon do take them off, therefore I ended up with really damaged nails.
Now I can say that I have watched my nails grow out to health, and that is the biotin. So it has worked and it has helped me. Now, the biotin is actually showing its results on my body.
I am looking forward to see how much mu hair will grow, how much stronger it will feel, because now the biotin started working and I can tell that by the health of my nails.
I will keep you posted!
- Biotin is also known as Vitamin H or B7
- Biotin is a co-factor in the metabolism of fatty acids and leucine and in gluconeogenesis
- Biotin helps in the citric acid cycle – a process by which biochemical energy is generated during aerobic respiration
- Necessary for cell growth
- Production of fatty acids
- Handles metabolism of fat and amino acids
- Helps to transfer carbon dioxide
- Helps in maintaining steady blood sugar levels
- Biotin is recommended for strengthening hair and nails.
Initial symptoms of biotin deficiency
- Dry Skin
- Seborrheic dermatitis
- Fungal infections
- Rashes including red, patchy ones near the mouth.
- Fine and brittle hair
- Hair loss or total baldness (alopecia)
- If left untreated, neurological symptoms can develop, including: mild depression, which may progress to profound lassitude and, eventually, to somnolence; changes in mental status; generalized muscular pains; hyperesthesia and paresthesia
- Biotin deficiency rarely occurs among healthy people, since the daily requirement of Biotin is low. Many foods provide adequate amount of it, intestinal bacteria synthesize small amounts of it, and the body effectively scavenges and recycles it from bodily waste.
The recommended adequate intake of Biotin
- Infants (under 12 months old) – 5 to 6 mcg/day
- Children (1 to 3 years old) – 8 mcg/day
- Children (4 to 8 years old) – 12 mcg/day
- Males and Females (9 to 16 years old) – 20 mcg/day
- Males and Females (14 to 18 years old) – 25 mcg/day
- Males and Females (over 19 years old) – 30 mcg/day
- Pregnant and lactating women – 30 mcg/day.
Biotin and Diabetes
- In several studies Biotin supplementation has been shown to enhance the performance of insulin
- The supplements can also increase the activity of the enzyme glucokinase, which the liver uses early in the process of sugar utilization
- Biotin supplementation may represent an effective adjudicative nutritional therapy to people with poorly controlled diabetes with the potential for improving lipid metabolism.
Biotin side effects
