Biotin the Myth

There are a number of herbal supplements available that claim to work as a hair loss treatment.   Biotin has not had any clinical studies on human beings showing that it combats hair loss or regrows hair. Biotin is a nutritional supplement  that has been around for years and is taken orally. There is some preliminary evidence that hair loss can be reduced when biotin is taken by mouth in combination with zinc while a cream containing the chemical compound clobetasol propionate is applied to the skin. But the finding is not conclusive.

Currently there are only 3 hair loss medications on the market: finasteride (marketed as Propecia), which you take orally, Revivogen and Tricomax, which are applied topically

    Biotin is an important component of enzymes in the body that break down certain substances like fats, carbohydrates, and others.There isn’t a good laboratory test for detecting biotin deficiency, so this condition is usually identified by its symptoms, which include thinning of the hair (frequently with loss of hair color) and red scaly rash around the eyes, nose, and mouth. Nervous system symptoms include depression, exhaustion, hallucinations, and tingling of the arms and legs. There is some evidence that diabetes could result in biotin deficiency.`::.

      Thank you for your input. There is no clear evidence that biotin will improve hair growth, some studies indicate that it improves elasticity.
