Hair loss? Loss of hair color? Can it be caused by a Biotin deficiency? Some experts say it can. Although Biotin comes in a supplement (liquid and pill form) it is most effective when delivered directly from your diet. Ask your nutritionist what amount of Biotin she recommends for you and consider combining it with a Zinc supplement to increase its potency.
To encourage hair regrowth when hair loss and thinning are an issue consider adding the following biotin-rich foods to your diet:
FOODS RICH IN BIOTIN
Nuts (Almonds, Walnuts, Pecans & Peanuts)
BIOTIN-RICH SMOOTHIE RECIPE
1 cup raspberries (frozen)
1 t brewers Yeast
1 raw egg yolk
1 T almond butter
1 ½ cup unsweetened almond milk
Blend & enjoy!
