The One Supplement You Should Take Every Morning For Hair Loss, According To A Dermatologist

Hair loss is a common issue that affects both men and women of all ages. Thinning hair can be from a number of factors but the most common is genetics. While it’s often viewed as a natural part of aging, there are ways you can help combat it.

According to the American Academy of Dermatologists, “About 80 million men and women in the United States have this type of hair loss.” Other common causes of hair loss include stress, pregnancy, and poor diet. If you suffer from hair loss, a dietary supplement can help slow it down and even stop it completely.

The most recommended supplement for hair loss by dermatologists is biotin. Biotin is a B-vitamin that helps with your hair, skin, and nails. Research has found that a biotin deficiency can be linked to hair loss and thinning in humans.

According to Healthline, “B-vitamins help create red blood cells, which carry oxygen and nutrients to the scalp and hair follicles.”

Since hair loss and new hair growth starts at the scalp, you need these nutrients to for healthy hair. You can get B-vitamins like biotin in many of the foods you eat but for vegetarians or vegans, taking a supplement can be extremely helpful because animal foods are the main source of this vitamin naturally.
