We’re into it, and you should be too

Here’s the thing: Even though the hair that comes out of your head is essentially dead protein cells, it doesn’t mean you’re powerless to improve how it looks and grows. Hair that looks dull, or is fine, shedding, brittle or damaged is that way partly because of things that are going on inside, like stress, or hormonal imbalances or nutritional deficiencies in iron, zinc or biotin. The good news is that’s something that’s very solvable.

So let’s start with Biotin. Here’s a rundown on what it is, what it does and how you can make sure you’re getting enough.

What is Biotin?

Also known as vitamin B7 or vitamin H, Biotin is a water-soluble vitamin that helps convert nutrients into energy.

What are the benefits of Biotin?

Biotin can help improve the health of your hair, skin, and nails, and can promote scalp health, which is pretty much the bedrock for healthy, luscious hair. It also aids in relieving irritation and flaking, which can hinder hair growth. 

In a nutshell? Biotin supports hair health and can help promote stronger and healthier hair.

How to get more of it

The good news is that Biotin is in a lot of the foods you may already eat - eggs, fish, meat, nuts, wholegrains, even avocado and bananas. Because it is so prevalent in many everyday foods, it’s quite rare to be deficient in it. Rare, but absolutely not impossible. And given that deficiency in Biotin can contribute to brittle nails and hair loss, upping your intake with supplements can help in the hair growth and strong nails departments.

AÉDE’S Hair Activist is a daily hair supplement designed to support natural, healthy hair growth (as well as boost collagen production and reduce free radical damage) with a blend of potent vitamins, minerals and antioxidants including - you guessed it - Biotin for longer, stronger and shinier hair. But it’s not your average hair, skin and nails supplement, because it’s packed full of active ingredients like zinc, riboflavin, marine collagen, silica, selenium and iron (and more) to work their butt off for you to help you achieve your wellness goals and make the change from within.

Just remember: Consistency is key!
