For as long as I can remember I have had a love hate relationship with my hair. But like most women, when it comes to our hair, it can either be our crowning glory or just another bad hair day. However, once I found two great secrets to success. My current hair stylist Michelle Johnson of Favor Hair Salon in Mint Hill, NC and one of my favorite hair supplements Biotin, I have been having more of a love affair with my hair then before.
Although I have heard people say that too much of anything can be a bad thing, including Biotin; however, a nutritionist told me that with this particular supplement, what our bodies do not need it will be disposed of naturally through our digestive system. I also read the same thing on the internet “excess biotin is believed to be excreted in the urine”. I can’t speak for others but I will share with you my positive experiences and what I know about this supplement.
Biotin also known as vitamin H, is wonderful hair and metabolism booster that was recommended to me over five years ago and I have taken it every day since then to promote hair growth and keep my metabolism supported. Primarily Biotin is known for:
- Healthy Hair: It will make your hair grow faster and thicker, you can actually see the results in a month or two.
- Strong Nails: It makes your nails grow faster and stronger. So, you can get rid of those brittle & thin nails.
- Boosting the Metabolism: Of carbohydrates, fats and proteins for energy
- Healthy Skin: Promotes smooth silky and healthy skin
When considering taking Biotin, factors that may be important are mcg’s per day, age, sex, and if you are pregnant. You can purchase Biotin at any health food, nutrition or drug store.
