The German Nutrition Society (DGE) recommends a daily intake of about 30-60 µg of biotin for adults. The daily intake of biotin for an adult corresponds to about 100 g of peanuts. For children, the value is between 15-30 µg. In certain life situations, such as pregnancy, more biotin is needed.
3 Biotin in combination with other supplements
Biotin is ideal for promoting hair growth. To completely benefit from its positive aspects, it helps to combine it with other hair strengthening ingredients. Selenium also participates in hair production. In doing so, selenium supports the hair roots so that strong hair growth can be achieved. If hair becomes thinner and more brittle, there is often a selenium deficiency. Vitamin C blocks free radical damage and increases collagen formation. Zinc inhibits sebum production and keeps the scalp healthy. Vitamin D helps for stimulating hair growth and thus counteracts hair loss.
4. biotin in the form of food supplements
If you want to increase a too low biotin level with a dietary supplement, you should definitely pay attention to the form of the active ingredient and its origin. Biotin capsules are particularly suitable for increasing the biotin level. They are very well tolerated and are utilized by the body to a high degree. The preparation should also not contain any chemical additives such as microcrystalline cellulose. If you buy a preparation from Germany, you can be sure that the product has also been produced safely and is of high quality.
