The wonders of one vitamin for your overall health.
THE HEALTH BENEFITS OF BIOTIN FOR YOUR HAIR, SKIN & NAILS
Niacin is a B vitamin that has many beneficial implications for skin and hair health. The water content of the skin can increase greatly with application of a niacin based cream, nicotinamide. For those suffering from rosacea or other red skin irritations niacin can help bring youthful beauty back to the skin. Niacin is often a primary ingredient in vitamins for skin. Much the same as biotin, foods that contain niacin are great for overall health. Peas, brown rice, peanuts, tuna, sweet potatoes, avocado, and turkey are just a few popular niacin rich foods.
4 WAYS THAT BIOTIN CAN HELP INCREASE YOUR OVERALL HEALTH
1. It helps boost your metabolism
If you are eating all the right foods but your body is not able to properly break down foods, you can not only suffer from vitamin deficiencies but also weight gain. When you get enough biotin, your metabolism can speed up, resulting in weight loss, because you body can more effective break down the substances mentioned earlier like carbs, fat, and protein.
In order to have a healthy weight loss plan, you should not only rely on taking biotin to act as a weight-loss supplement, but incorporate it into a healthy meal plan as well as exercise regimen. Healthy foods that can be included in your diet such as eggs, walnuts, and whole grains are filled with biotin!
2. It can help regulate your blood sugar
If you are diagnosed with diabetes or deal with hypoglycemic attacks every so often, then including foods that can help you get more biotin can help regulate your blood sugar. In a Chinese study conducted by scientists in 2015 that took three different groups of rats and gave them each a different level of biotin in their feed (low, medium, and high dose), it was concluded that biotin could help synthesize glycogen in the body and reduce gluconeogenesis. Therefore, it can help regulate the spikes and dips that many people with blood sugar disorders endure daily.
Blood sugar disorders can cause individuals to face uncomfortable symptoms like dizziness, shakiness, irritability, nausea, and fatigue. If you incorporate more biotin into your diet or supplement with high-quality biotin, you can help give yourself natural relief from these symptoms.
3. It has to potential to help keep your heart healthy
In a study conducted by a team of researchers and published by Elsevier in 2006, it was concluded that supplementing an individual’s diet with biotin can lead to lowered levels of fat (triglycerides) in the blood. Hypertriglyceridemia can increase an individual’s risk of heart disease, but with the right therapeutic lifestyle changes such as following a healthy diet, decreasing alcohol consumption, quitting smoking, getting regular aerobic exercise, and adding both high doses of omega-3 fatty acids (such as from fish oil supplements) and biotin, it can be controlled.
4. It can help you look younger
As we age, our skin loses its elasticity, which can cause fine lines, wrinkles, and sagging skin. Biotin is often found in many women’s vitamins and in “beauty” vitamins that help women maintain health hair, skin, and nails. While biotin’s role in keeping skin healthy is still a bit mysterious, many researchers agree it is most likely tied to biotin’s ability to metabolize fat in the body, which helps keep skin feeling vibrant.
In fact, biotin plays such a big role in skin health that when someone has a biotin deficiency, they may suffer from patchy red rashes, and fungal skin infections. Foods rich in biotin such a egg yolks, salmon, and whole grains can help keep your skin supple, moisturized, and free of skin irritations.
