Happy Monday friends! We know Friday can't come quick enough...but let's hope we can help take you through the days leading up to the weekend.
To start off your week, we have your health and beauty tip.
Biotin also known as part of the B-complex (Vitamin B7), is necessary for cell growth, the metabolism of fats & amino acids etc. Biotin is key for growth and strength of hair and nails and beautiful skin that has a nice tan glow.
Your body requires about 3500mcg for new hair growth; taking Biotin along with other healthy hair practices will result in effective hair growth.
In addition to a Biotin supplement, you will see high traces of the vitamin in foods such as:
- Swiss chard and other green leafy veggies
- Egg yolks
It is important to note that excessive consumption of egg whites (2 or more daily), can result in a Biotin deficiency. This is due to a component known as avidin and may result in Alopecia (hair loss), dermatitis and other illnesses.
The vitamin has been found to assist persons with diabetes in several areas.
