WHAT IS YOUR EXPERIENCE WITH BIOTIN FOR FEMALE HAIR LOSS? ## I've no experience with it, but I can fill you in on the details. Biotin is a water soluble B vitamin and one of the signs of a deficiency in it is severe hair loss that progresses to include the loss of eyelashes and eyebrows in those that are severely deficient. Therefore, when looking for a reason for someone's hair loss and a way to rectify the situation, it is often the first therapy tried.

Biotin Tablet

hello sir i want to know about Tablet Biotin... ## Biotin deficiency is rare because, in general, intestinal bacteria produce biotin in excess of the body's daily requirements. Regardless, in the rare situation of deficiency, a supplement is not needed since you can get all the biotin you need and more in whole foods. NOTE: the list below is not a complete list of foods that contain biotin. Avocado is one of the richest fruit sources of biotin. Also swiss chard, bread and yeast, salmon, liver, halibut, pork, raspberries, cauliflower, tomatoes, carrots, onions, cabbage and cucumber are other good sources of biotin. Surely one or more of these foods could be easily incorporated into one's dietary regime. Furthermore an egg yolk is a very dense source of biotin. It is noted that re... ...
