Also known as vitamin H, biotin is one of the B complex vitamins that helps the body convert food into energy, contributing to normal macronutrient metabolism. Biotin covers many different functions in our body, one of which is helping to look after our hair and skin. Some conditions, lifestyle habits and medications can cause low levels of biotin.
The hair life cycle depends mainly on the condition of the hair bulb, the skin and blood supply to the skin. Biotin contains sulphur atoms that make up part of keratin, which is a building block of hair. It has a beneficial effect on the hair bulb and root.
The Beautiful Hair supplement has also been enriched with bamboo extract, a source of silica. Silica is another name for silicon dioxide – a natural trace mineral. It occurs naturally in various plants e.g. leafy greens. If you can’t get enough silica in your diet, supplementation is a good way to make sure your body gets what it needs.
Vitamin B12 has a role in the process of cell division. The division and health of cells in the hair bulb affects the appearance and condition of the hair. Vitamin B6 contributes to normal synthesis of cysteine, a building block of keratin (the protein that makes up hair). Vitamin B6 also contributes to the regulation of hormonal activity, which impacts the appearance of your hair as well. Vitamins B12 and B6 also support red blood cell formation.
To maximise the health benefits for you, Beautiful Hair has also been enriched with thiamine. Together with biotin, vitamin B6 and vitamin B12, thiamine contributes to normal energy-yielding metabolism.
