Biotin for hair – Benefits of the vitamin
Hair loss, thin or brittle hair can be quite stressful for the person concerned. Also, many women ask themselves: “How can I make my hair grow faster?” While numerous products for hair are advertised in the media, biotin is said to be a real miracle cure.
What is Biotin?
Biotin, also known as vitamin B7 or vitamin H, is a water-soluble vitamin and is responsible for many human metabolic processes. It helps the body to make keratin. Keratin is the main component of hair, which is why biotin is considered a beauty vitamin for hair. It should not only make the hair stronger and more beautiful, but also protect against hair loss and can stimulate hair growth.¹
Biotin is said to have other benefits that are important for health and appearanceare. Since nails are also made of keratin, biotin is supposed to provide the necessary strength. In addition, biotin is responsible for the normal functioning of the nervous system and numerous other mental functions .
Biotin for beautiful hair
Just shampooing and drying can put a lot of strain on hair. Hair is also exposed to numerous harmful environmental influences in everyday life. It is therefore advisable to be careful with the heat and to use light shampoos in small quantity. In addition, a head massage is not only good for the soul, but also promotes blood circulation of the scalp.
But that alone is usually not enough to have beautiful and strong hair. An optimal nutrient supply is also important and this can be achieved through a balanced diet and the supply of biotin as well as iron, zinc and folic acid. These substances are found, for example, in fish, fresh fruit and vegetables and other foods rich in vitamins. Dietary supplements such as the Biotin Complex with Zinc + Selenium from Casida can also help to supplement an unbalanced diet. It is the optimal combination for strong hair, beautiful skin and firm nails.

Hair loss means when more than 100 pieces of hair are lost daily. The causes of hair loss can be varie: medication, chemotherapy, diseases, irritation, stress, but also malnutrition or vitamin deficiencies often lead to hair loss. With the latter, a balanced diet already helps to supply the body with enough biotin, selenium and zinc.

If lack of necessary nutrients is the cause, biotin is the solution. Casida’s tabs could finally put an end to this problem – as biotin in combination with zinc and selenium is said to be particularly effective in working against hair loss and other hair problems.
