Does Biotin Make You Hair Thicker?

Biotin which is also known as vitamin H is a widely known natural remedy for hair loss. It helps process energy in your body and is responsible for a variety of bodily functions including hair growth. Biotin is part of many vitamins for thinning hair and can help stop or revert hair loss and also strengthen your nails.

Biotin Sources

Biotin can be found in many different food sources such as nuts, sardines and egg yolk. If you have trouble consuming enough Biotin the natural way, pills and supplements are easily available. 30mcg of biotin daily should be enough for a healthy adult. However, some doctors may believe that more biotin can help with your thinning hair and prescribe up to 1000mcg a day. Some sites online may suggest that you consume even more than that but exceeding the recommended daily dosage is certainly not a good idea. Biotin can have side effects in extreme dosages and self-medicating is not advisable under any circumstance. If you are unsure about taking biotin consult with a doctor to find out if you have a deficiency and if biotin could help your condition.

Does Taking Biotin Help In All Cases Of Thin Hair.

Biotin is known to help treat hair loss. However, not all cases are the same and there are exceptions. It is known to help people that lose hair due to stress, illnesses, malnutrition or lifestyle changes. Other reasons, especially genetic reasons for hair loss will most likely not be cured with a biotin treatment. If you suffer from male pattern baldness or thin hair runs in your family it is unlikely that taking biotin will cure your condition.
