Biotin, also known as Vitamin B7 or Vitamin H and can be found mostly in foods such as eggs, milk, whole grains, nuts, and bananas. This vitamin helps produce enzymes and carries them throughout the body. Meaning biotin assists the body in converting proteins, fats, and carbohydrates into energy.
Your body needs biotin to keep your hair, skin, and nails healthy. If you are not getting enough biotin, you may have hair loss and or fragile nails. As we age, this may become more noticeable. Hair loss is very common in most men and women over the age of 50. Common causes of hair loss besides aging can also be genetic or from stress or even depression. If you are lacking biotin, meaning that you are not getting enough from foods that you eat. Taking a supplement or using products that contain biotin will help ensure the body has enough of this vital nutrient so that possibly hair loss or thinning and brittle nails can be a few fewer things to worry about.
Numerous clinical studies have proven that patients receiving any biotin supplementation experienced an increase in hair/ nail growth. Cases were categorized by age, a dose of biotin, symptoms, and length of total treatment. The time toward improvements varied among cases; however, the average time that improvements were recorded was between 2-3 months for most cases.
How does biotin work?
Biotin stimulates keratin production in hair and increases general follicle growth. Biotin cannot be stored in your body for long, so it is important to make sure that you are eating foods that are rich in biotin on a daily basis. You will find that there are many products such as shampoos, conditioners, and topical products that contain larger yet safe amounts of biotin.
Here at GOGOHAIR, we have the perfect solution for you! We offer a special laser helmet that has 272 medical-grade lasers and zero filler LEDs. This safety helmet is a great way to tackle hair loss issues at home, in your free time. Our company also produces more products if you want to take it to the next level and get even quicker results. We offer a special biotin shampoo, conditioner, and hair growth serum.
In addition to all of the products mentioned above, there are supplements that you can take on a daily basis. We like to look for supplements that contain biotin alone or a B-complex in a multivitamin form. The recommended amount of biotin for an adult is 2-5 mg daily. There is no danger in overtaking biotin because it is a form of vitamin B, and it is very difficult to overdose on that. With that being said, men and women do usually need separate amounts of biotin daily.
Here at GOGOHAIR, we have a supplement for men and women separately. Women usually need more biotin, so it is already adjusted in the capsule. We recommend starting with four capsules a day with food, preferably in the morning. For men, it is the same amount of capsules per day but there is a smaller mg per capsule.
This formula is made with only all-natural, medical-grade ingredients. You may start to see results in 2-4 months.
