Know More About Biotin and Other Supplements

Oh how much we adore those long luscious hair and skin glowing to the Gods! But the times we live in are tense, traumatic, and tedious (all of them Ts thought). Also the super unhealthy and incomplete diet we binge on does nothing but makes matters even worse. Not straying from the topic, all of them take a toll on our wellness. A quick fix solution? Supplements. Allow Hints of life to introduce you to the miracle of a supplement called Biotin.

What are Supplements?

Quite plainly put, supplements are your daily dose of everyday vitamins, minerals, enzymes, herbals, botanicals, amino acids, and a lot more. Obviously, our daily diet and hectic schedule won’t be adequate to fulfill all of them on a regular basis. For this purpose only, supplements come in handy. 

Whether you visit your nutritionist or hear any celebrity talking on an interview, they all will recommend taking supplements. Supplements are the supplies that you lack. The most popular supplements that you would come across sometimes are Vitamin E, D, K supplements, Calcium, Iron, Folic Acid, Amino Acids, Cod liver Oil, Ashwagandha, Garlic, Tulsi, Neem, Amla, etc. Supplements come in all forms like tablets, powder, bars, injection shots, and drops.

It is wise to consult your doctor before starting any supplements. Also, make sure to be regular to see results and go with trustworthy brands. Refer to the label of ingredients behind your supplement bottle or packet before making a purchase. Check for any possible ingredients you might be allergic to. After all, you are what you eat. Always reach for an FDA approved Biotin or any other supplement. 

Supplements for People on a Diet

The urgency of taking supplements on a daily basis is high already when you are not cutting down on food of any sort. When on a diet this need doubles by a hundred. You may miss out on some particular vitamins, minerals, or enzymes when on a diet. For this reason alone, supplements got your back. Even on a diet, you can let your hair down and relax because without extra eating or putting on weight, you will still be able to get the goodness of the food items you are restricted from. 

1. Biotin

One such supplement that has become a basic necessity after being tremendously recommended by doctors and beauty gurus alike is Biotin. For simple understanding, Biotin is Vitamin H and one of the B complex vitamins. Biotin majorly is used to get those healthy hair, skin, and nails, by pregnant women during pregnancy for healthier fetal development and to cure diabetes and kidney disorders. However, no studies are conclusive enough to show that Biotin solely positively impacts all of the above. 

2. Natural Sources of Biotin

Biotin is a combination of everything healthy and can be found in egg yolk, bananas, cauliflower, nut butter, organ meats, whole grains, and mushrooms. It is said that cooking food over a certain temperature, kills the biotin-yielding enzymes present in it. Any natural source of Biotin is best found in its raw state in unprocessed food items. Since our diets won’t be able to comply with the daily dose of Biotin which is 30 to 100 micrograms (mg), a Biotin supplement can work wonders. 

Biotin for Hair, Nails, and Skin

The reason why people especially women have begun to use Biotin is because it is allegedly claimed to give you glowing skin, strong nails, and long hair. Separate biotin is sold to circulate among the feminine target audience that especially claims to improve hair, nail, and skin wellness.

Studies have shown that in case of a biotin deficiency, people suffer from hair fall, breakouts, and brittle nails. To revert the effects of this deficiency, biotin can be helpful. Although, no studies are conclusive enough to prove that it is solely with the help of Biotin that you get this all in three packages. Whichever biotin you buy, a description for the purpose it serves will be given too. Read that carefully.

Popular Biotin Brands and From Where to Shop For It?

There are many brands that sell biotin and it is readily available in online stores and in drugstores as well. Do an in-depth research and see for yourself which biotin brand has received the maximum number of positive feedback. Moreover, you can refer to your doctor too regarding which brand of biotin would he she suggests. I personally use the biotin by MuscleXP and have seen a tremendous improvement in my hair and nail quality. For sure biotin has worked for me at some level.
