ok. so I am still taking Biotin, but just in a different “form” I got a prenatal vitamin…yes it is for pregnant women, and no I am not prego! It was recommended to me by a health professional. This is basically a multivitamin with everything you can imagine, but also with probiotics. 30 tablet for 10 bucks. From Whole Foods. On sale. Take one per day. There are mixed views on prenatal vitamins, so more on that to come maybe.
I really got this so that I could combine Vitamin D, biotin and B vitamins in one pill. It is really all about Vitamin D. I am really interested in how important it really is. Maybe this article will help. Also, when doing research on particular nutrients, or vitamins, try to look up some SCIENTIFIC papers on the subject, don’t just go with whatever I say. lol!

Sources — Biotin can be found in a variety of plants, but is found in highest levels in the liver, egg yolk, soybean products, and yeast. Biotin acts as a CO2 carrier on the surface of each enzyme. As a result, it has an essential role in many processes, including protein and DNA synthesis and cell replication.Biotin is a water-soluble B vitamin which is essential for the activity of many important metabolic reactions. Its activity is required for the maintenance of many tissues, including skin and hair, and is required for normal neuronal and hematopoietic function
But does it help to take supplements to increase hair growth? Comment if it has (or has not) worked for you!
I am taking 3 tablets a day (at meals). I will let you know if I see results!
