Increasing your intake of biotin may help make your hair stronger and more resistant to falling out, in other words, YES! 

 

Biotin, also known as vitamin B7, stimulates keratin production in hair and can increase the rate of follicle growth. It is not stored for long in the body - most of yours is from the foods you eat. In order to be effective, it needs to be consumed. In actual fact, there is little evidence that biotin reduces hair loss, but it remains a popular supplement for hair, skin, and nail growth. 

Biotin is added to some shampoos that claim to reduce hair loss, there is no evidence that externally using biotin really works. Consuming foods rich in healthy vitamins and minerals will help with overall hair health. The best natural sources of biotin are meat, eggs, fish, seeds, nuts, and vegetables. These will help your hair follicle by boosting your keratin.

By making your hair stronger, it will be less prone to falling out. Adults should consume around 30 mcg/day, and women who are breastfeeding should increase their intake to 35 mcg/day with physician support and guidance. Foods containing Vitamin E such as avocado can also support hair health. Lastly, ensure you’re getting enough omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids through foods like fish, walnuts, and chia seeds. Most people benefit from supplementing with 2,000mg a day of omega-3 fatty acids.

Common causes of hair loss include genetics, certain medications, as well as underlying conditions like depression and stress. If your hair loss is causing you concern, talk to a doctor. They may give you a physical exam and investigate whether your diet or hair care routine may be the cause. Additionally, you may be deficient in certain vitamins that give you the building blocks needed to regrow healthy hair.
