More often than not, we associate the importance of Biotin with promoting healthy skin, hair and nails; however, this underrated vitamin actually does a lot more and is super beneficial for the eyes, liver, and keeping the nervous system healthy too! Consequently, it’s a no-brainer that The Natural Beauty Salon should include Biotin injections as part of their new range of injectible Vitamins so you can keep your hair, skin, nails and body in tip-top condition!
What is Biotin?
Biotin or B7 is one of the B Complex vitamins. It’s also a water-soluble vitamin which means the body doesn’t store the nutrient, making it essential for people to obtain it from a balanced diet or through supplementation. Biotin rich foods include tomatoes, carrots, almonds, salmon, eggs and walnuts. But if you find yourself not eating enough of these foods daily and thus lacking the essential vitamin, then Natural Beauty’s Biotin injections are the straightforward and efficient solution. Your body requires Biotin to help convert food into energy, manage blood sugar levels, and play a vital role in amino acid synthesis. This process is essential for maintaining, strengthening and repairing skin, hair and nails, making our vitamin shot a simple, efficient way to maintain optimum Biotin levels!
Biotin B7 Deficiency
If you have health conditions or are on certain medications that impact how your body absorbs nutrients, you can be at risk of Biotin deficiency. For example, conditions such as Crohn’s disease makes it hard for the gut to absorb nutrients, and long term use of anti-seizure medication can lower the body’s Biotin levels. Similarly, Biotinidase deficiency or BTD is the most common cause of B7 deficiency, which is where the body simply isn’t able to use Biotin. Not consuming B7 rich foods in a balanced diet can also lead to deficiency in this nutrient.
Symptoms of Biotin deficiency tend to start gradually, building up over time with symptoms varying from person to person but can include one or more of the following:
|Thinning hair, brittle hair or hair loss||Dry skin, skin rashes, skin infections||Brittle nails||Enhanced ageing|
|Pins and needles, numbness||Loss of appetite||Nausea||
Benefits of Injectable Vitamin B7 Biotin
Vitamin B7 injections can offer immediate health benefits, supporting and helping general wellness, promoting stronger, healthier hair growth and thicker nails and protecting against dry skin, rashes and skin infections, including acne.
A pilot study also indicates that people living with Multiple Sclerosis had some degree of clinical improvement when using high doses of Biotin. Biotin is understood to have a role in producing myelin sheath, the protective material of nerve fibres in the spinal cord, eyes and brain that becomes damaged or destroyed in those living with MS. Trials are ongoing, but it looks super positive so far!
Natural Beauty Biotin Injectibles
Our Biotin shots for general health and wellness directly deliver a 0.5% 2ml dose into the muscle for fast and effective absorption. We recommend regular treatments every week for eight weeks for the best results. However, these can be delivered less due to time and budget if required. After that, we recommend a monthly maintenance top-up, which can continue as long as needed. Our B7 anti-ageing booster injection can be combined alongside our B-Complex, B12, Vitamin D and Vitamin C injections for additional health and wellbeing.
