November 10, 2019

A list of healthy food rich in Biotin Biotin is a very important water-soluble nutrient,
also known as Vitamin B7 or Vitamin H. It is used by the body to convert food into energy. Biotin breaks down the fats, carbs
and proteins that you eat, and uses them to build strong and healthy nails, hair and skin. Some people are at higher risk of being deficient
in Biotin, especially those who have taken antibiotics or anti-seizure medication for
a long time. Pregnant women, those who drink lots of alcohol or have Crohn’s disease may also be low in
biotin. In today’s video we share with you a list of 16 healthy foods that will boost biotin
in the body. Eating these regularly will help you to grow stronger healthier hair follicles. They will
also improve metabolic function, prevent brittle nails, boost energy levels, reduce muscle
aches and improve cognitive function in the brain. 1. Nutritional Yeast Nutritional yeast is by far one of the best
sources of the B Vitamin Complex. It is a rich source of biotin, and is well known or
boosting the health of the nervous system. This is a super food when it comes to treating
depression, low mood or low energy levels. 2. Egg Yolks Pasture raised Eggs contain all the building
blocks of life and are a wonderful source of biotin, along with Vitamin A for producing
healthy nails, hair and skin. Be warned however that raw egg whites contain a protein called
avidin, which can block biotin from being absorbed. This is why you should always cook
your eggs. 3. Chicken Liver Low levels of biotin in the body can lead
to scaly skin, a form of dermatitis. Chicken liver is a wonderful source of biotin, Vitamin
B6 and folate. These B vitamins work together to build new and healthy skin cells. They
also help with cellular function in forming DNA. 4. Walnuts
If you are trying to grow stronger healthier hair, then walnuts are one of the best foods.
Walnuts are packed full of omega 3 and protein which provides the raw material to build hair
follicles. They are also rich in biotin which helps to build keratin (hair protein) and
also help to prevent hair loss. 5. Cauliflower This low carb vegetable is a wonderful source
of B vitamins and also contains small amounts of biotin. This is in the cruciferous vegetable
family, all of which help to fight the effects of aging and free radical damage. The B vitamins
in cauliflower work together to ease anxiety, and make you feel happier. 6. Brewer’s Yeast
You can purchase brewer’s yeast as a tablet supplement from health food stores. This is
very similar to nutritional yeast and one of the richest sources of Biotin or Vitamin
B7. Taking this is an easy way to boost your biotin levels on a daily basis. 7. Salmon
Biotin is well known for helping the digestive system to break down healthy fats and proteins.
Wild caught salmon is an excellent source of omega 3 fatty acids, protein and biotin.
This is the perfect food for improving brain function and for repairing and building muscles. 8. Pecan Nuts
Although you will struggle to get all of your biotin from seeds or nuts, they are still
essential for the human diet. Pecan nuts contain small amounts of biotin but are also rich
in healthy fats which lower inflammation in the body. They are also high in Vitamin E
which works with the biotin to produce long healthy hair, and smooth youthful skin cells. 9. Camembert cheese
Both camembert cheese and blue cheese are shown to be some of the highest sources of
biotin. The biotin in this helps the body to process it’s fat soluble nutrients like
vitamin A. This leads to better overall health, especially if you follow a low carb diet such
as keto. 10. Cheddar Although this contains less biotin than camembert,
your standard cheddar will help to strengthen your nails in particular. Cheese provides
calcium, a key mineral for strengthening brittle nails. Always look for dairy from grass fed
cows, as these are the healthiest. 11. Tomatoes Tomatoes are considered one of the best fruits
for supplying biotin to the body. These red fruits are wonderful for stimulating faster
hair growth. They contain vitamins B, C, E and folate which helps to nourish the follicles. 12. Avocados
These are some of the healthiest superfoods on the planet rich in a wide range of nutrients.
They contain small amounts of biotin, yet this is here to help your body break down
the food properly. Nature provides foods with the right balance of nutrients so that your
body can absorb them all, when eaten raw and whole. 13. Beef Liver
Organ meats are some of the richest sources of Biotin, but are disliked by many people
due to their taste. To combat this, we recommend eating your beef liver ground and mixed with
regular minced beef. This hides the flavour and allow you to enjoy its combination of
biotin and other B vitamins. 14. Almonds We highly recommend eating a few almonds every
single day. These small nuts are ram packed full of health benefits and trace minerals.
These contribute to a strong and healthy body, especially in protecting the brain and the
heart. 15. Spinach It is important to be consuming lots of leafy
greens on a daily basis. Spinach contains one of the highest biotin levels in the cruciferous
vegetable family. You can freeze spinach to use whenever you wish and this will not affect
its biotin levels. 16. Natto This is a Japanese form of fermented soy beans
and contains biotin along with lots of vitamin K2. these can work together in the body to
make more energy in the mitochondria and at the cellular level. As you can see there are many foods that you can eat to boost your biotin levels on a daily
basis. We do not recommend taking biotin supplements as it should be part of the complex of B vitamins
which work together in nature. Biotin supplements alone can have side effects, so stick to taking nutritional yeast if you
want to bulk up on this nutrient. Deficiencies can cause rashes on the skin, brittle nails, heart problems and even make
you depressed, so ‘s important to get this into your diet. Remember that eating a mixture of whole foods
is the best way to get all of the different nutrients that we recommend in these videos. Processed foods like refined flour, sugar,
breads, cakes, and biscuits are not a whole source from nature, which is why they cause
health problems down the line. Natural foods provide complex formulations of minerals, vitamins and phytonutrients which
the body is adapted to using. To learn more about nutrition and healthy foods, please see our other videos. Thank you very much for listening, a like is always appreciated and remember to subscribe
