One of the most well-regarded vitamins for physical appearance is Biotin! Naturally produced, biotin plays an important role in a wide variety of bodily functions. Especially the health of hair, skin, and nails. Keep reading to learn about the benefits of biotin, and how Vida-Flo can help you to incorporate this vitamin into your beauty routine.
What is Vitamin B7?
The Biotin vitamin, also referred to as vitamin B7 or H7, helps the body metabolize protein, fats, and carbohydrates – essential for maintaining healthy hair, skin, and nails. Since the body does not store water-soluble vitamins, you must ingest them every day. Fortunately, bacteria in the body produce it, and certain foods contain it. It can also be consumed via Biotin supplements, which is the most recommended method of obtaining it for those needing to increase their Vitamin B7.
At Vida-Flo clinics around Middle Tennessee, we can administer Biotin through an IV drip in as little as 30 minutes. This is the most effective way to obtain high doses of Biotin, as it is immediately absorbed. Our highly trained staff will guide you through the right add-ons for your next drip and customize it to your goals.
Biotin for Hair, Skin & Nails
B vitamins help create amino acids that produce a form of keratin (which our hair and nails are mostly comprised of). Obtaining it in small doses or eating biotin-rich foods can help maintain your hair’s health and slightly improve its strength. As well as assist with less shedding and a faster growth rate. For this same reason, it can help those struggling with brittle nails, by increasing nail thickness by up to 25%! Making it a great treatment option for anyone who bites their nails, as well as those using acrylic nails.
Biotin for the skin works slightly differently. In addition to Keratin, Biotin also produces fatty acids that nourish the skin to maintain a clear complexion. When the outer layer of the skin is unbalanced, you can experience dryness and dehydration. Taking Biotin will help with the production of new cells and boost the function of oil glands, resulting in healthier skin. It can also be beneficial for those with acne-prone skin, assisting with smoothness and overall appearance. This makes it a popular anti-aging treatment among those who are seeking to achieve more youthful and radiant skin.
