Hair Loss May Be a Result of Biotin Deficiency
by Jhon Williwart
of nails and new skin cells as well as strengthening bones and muscles so if an
individual has a deficiency the reverse happens that is cell growth slows. It is actually
a nutritional disorder although healthy individuals who have been on a long course of
antibiotics can also experience it.

Hair loss and dry skin are the early symptoms of this deficiency; hence thank your
lucky stars if you have found out about this at this stage where it can be controlled
and not allowed to cause any neurological disorder. A simple blood test will confirm
the problem and your dermatologist can prescribe some supplements for you; do
not exceed the recommended dose.

Will taking supplements be enough for promoting hair growth?

It will help to a great extent but you must add or increase intake of food like egg
yolks, beef liver, cheese, fruits, milk, nuts, oatmeal etc. Stop having egg whites alone
immediately if you have been diagnosed with this condition as the avidin in whites
bind with biotin and limits the absorption of the vital nutrient in your body.

Apart from the dietary factor there are genetic considerations also for which
supplements become necessary. As far as hair growth is concerned some external
supplements like biotin shampoo can prove useful, although there are some critics
who say that it is purely a marketing gimmick and that it does not help but then it
causes no harm also; they are not harsh as the controversial chemical used in
almost all the shampoos- SLS or sodium laureth sulfate so why knock it till you try it
especially if you have nothing to lose?
