Biton For beautiful Hair, Skin & Nails
Biotin is a water-soluble vitamin necessary for normal growth and body function. Biotin is a key regulatory element in gluconeogenesis, fatty acid synthesis, and in the metabolism of some amino
acids. Alongside its role in energy production, Biotin enhances the synthesis of certain proteins. In addition, Biotin promotes normal immunity and plays a critical role in skin health.

Biotin will keep you looking as good as you feel by encouraging healthy hair growth and radiant skin. Biotin is a water soluble, sulphur-containing member of the B complex. Biotin is most well known for its promotion of healthy hair and skin. Cradle cap in infants and male pattern baldness may be related to low levels of biotin. Biotin also helps the functioning of the sweat glands, bone marrow and nerve tissue.

It is a cofactor for chemical reactions that occur in the cell's engine, the mitochondria. Therefore biotin is an important vitamin in the production of fatty acids and the metabolism of food substances and B vitamins.

All of the B vitamins work together and are best used by the body in a B complex, which is why many B complex supplements include a small dose of biotin in them. If additional supplementation of biotin is needed it should be taken in addition to a good B complex. Most B vitamins are water-soluble and any extra from large doses is flushed out of the body easily, therefore it's best to take lower dosages of the B complex several times a day than one larger dose. Spray or sublingual forms of B vitamins are easily absorbed, as are capsules - if your digestion is healthy, then the tablet form is usually suitable for most people.

The absorption of biotin is inhibited by the consumption of raw egg whites because the egg protein avidin binds to biotin in the intestine. Rancid fats or oils, antibiotics, sulfa drugs, estrogen, alcohol, food processing and saccharin also inhibit the use of biotin in the body.

Hair Loss
We naturally lose 50 to 100 hairs everyday. New strands should replace them. When the hair is not replaced, thinning, and eventually balding, results. The most common type of hair loss is male pattern baldness. It is thought that the follicles are programmed to stop hair production when there are high levels of male hormones

Specifically, it is the hormone dehydrotestosterone (DHT) that can shut the hair follicles off. This is a highly active from of testosterone that some men make more of than others. In other cases, some men have more receptor sites for this hormone on their scalp, which increases the absorption of this hormone by the cells, and thus hair loss as well. The herb saw palmetto has been proven to slow the conversion of regular testosterone into DHT. While not a miracle, clinical evidence shows that this herb has made a difference for some. Dehydrotestosterone has also been linked to the development of prostate cell growths

Women can experience a similar type of hair loss due to hormone changes (i.e.: postpartum and at menopause) but it is usually not as extensive.

There are many factors, other than hormones, that contribute to hair loss. They include heredity, aging, poor circulation, acute illness, malnutrition, radiation exposure, skin disease, high fever, iron deficiency, diabetes, hypothyroidism, stress, fungal infection and chemical hair dyes.
