Experts explain: How does Biotin work?

Biotin can be an effective daily supplement for those taking action on hair loss or encouraging regrowth, but it also helps to enhance the structure and quality of your hair. The vitamin is often combined with other hair loss treatment plans, but what exactly is Biotin, and how does it work? In this blog, we’ll answer those questions and more. Let’s get to it.


What is Biotin?


Often referred to as vitamin B7 or H, Biotin is a crucial B complex vitamin that assists the body in transforming nutrients into energy. The vitamin also plays a critical role in maintaining strong and healthy hair, skin and nails. Without it, hair and nails can become brittle and skin quality will lower.

You can find Biotin in a wide range of foods, including:

  • Eggs
  • Bananas
  • Milk
  • Tuna
  • Sunflower seeds
  • Spinach

While the vitamin is common, many still struggle to integrate it sufficiently into their diets and will see the negative impact on the quality of their skin, nails and hair as a result. That’s where supplementation can help.


How does Biotin work?

Biotin works by heightening the production of keratin, a key protein vital for the healthy upkeep of hair, skin, and nails. Some studies have also suggested that Biotin can target and stimulate hair follicles in your scalp to help them access crucial nutrients and stimulate growth. Like most supplements, Biotin comes in capsule form and is easy to integrate into your daily routine. For best results, consistency is key.

Does Biotin work for everybody?

Everyone needs sufficient Biotin in their daily diet to maintain good-quality hair, skin and nails. In this sense, Biotin works for everybody, but those with a deficiency would benefit most from taking daily supplements. Some guys see a significant increase in hair quality and, in many cases, improved levels of regrowth after introducing Biotin supplementation into their daily lives. There are also a whole host of studies that support Biotin as a supplement for hair quality. 


Can I use Biotin alongside other medications?

Yes. In fact, Biotin is often included as part of a comprehensive hair loss treatment plan, along with clinically proven medications such as Finasteride and Minoxidil. However, if you’re taking a medication unrelated to hair loss, it’s always worth contacting your doctor to double-check that Biotin is suitable. 



Remember: every guy is different, and Biotin may not have the same impact on you as others. However, if you’re looking to enhance your hair loss treatment plan or improve the quality of your hair, Biotin could be well-suited to you.
