If you want to make your hair grow faster, you can speed up your hair growth with biotin. It has been scientifically proven that biotin deficiency can impact hair growth.
While studying the effects of biotin, scientists discovered that mice with biotin deficiencies developed dermatitis, alopecia (hair loss), and other health problems. When the mice were given biotin supplements, their health and hair growth drastically improved.
Unfortunately, biotin levels in food are reduced by preserving, and due to an increase of packaged foods and fast food, many of us aren't consuming as much biotin as we once were. This lower level of daily biotin intake has resulted in slower and weaker hair growth. Symptoms of biotin deficiency can include hair loss, brittle nails, exhaustion, or scaly red skin around the eyes, nose, or mouth.
Men and women who take a hair supplement that contains biotin can also notice a difference in their hair growth. Biotin is just one of the vitamins needed for healthy hair growth, though. Since biotin aids in the metabolism of amino acids and other nutrients, it is best to take a vitamin for hair that contains biotin as well as amino acids and zinc.
