DIY Biotin Shake for Healthier and Thicker Hair

Posted By Lovella Sitoy in Rapunzel on Sep 29, 2015

Bored with popping a pill? Drink biotin smoothies instead! It's a lot more enjoyable and more delicious. 

Listed below are fruits, vegetables, and other ingredients that you can incorporate in your biotin smoothie. They contain the highest level of biotin, including other crucial nutrients that your hair and nails need for strength and growth stimulation.  

Fruits

Deep colored fruits are packed with phytonutrients that help your body fight signs of premature aging such as hair graying, hair thinning, and wrinkles, as well as ward off certain diseases. Avocados, berries (raspberries, strawberries, cranberries, etc), bananas, and coconut are all rich in biotin. If you can make coconut water/milk as your shake or smoothie base instead of dairy milk or water, that’ll be an amazing option!

Vegetables

If you want to obtain tons of nutrients then add a vegetable or two in your morning smoothie. Vegetables such as lettuce, cucumber, spinach, cabbage, cauliflower and carrots contain high levels of biotin. Make sure that you add any of these in your everyday glass of hair shake for a stronger dose.

Grains

Whole grains such as oats, according to experts contain significant biotin levels. If you can mix in about a fourth cup of oats into your smoothie then that’ll certainly increase the hair-nourishing value of your drink.

Nuts and Legumes

These delicious snacking items are indeed beneficial for achieving naturally gorgeous tresses. Nuts especially almonds, peanuts, and pecans have a high biotin content. What's more they're rich in protein, which is crucial for keratin production. If you prefer to simply add a spoonful of peanut butter into your shake that’ll also be a yummy option. But if you’d rather have that natural nutty bits in your drink, go for whichever suits your mood! Other varieties of beans also have a good biotin content.

Dairy

Milk, yogurt, and other dairy products all naturally contain health essential vitamins and minerals including B complex vitamins that are great for your hair. For this purpose you can make low-fat milk or greek yogurt as your smoothie base instead of plain water. But if you’d rather have the almond milk that’s also fine.

You can freely choose from these ingredients and blend any combination together to make your own hair smoothie. Another tip by the way if you wish to increase the potency and strength of your everyday hair ritual, is to add a drop of liquid biotin into your smoothie.

Caring for your hair and body should be fun, enjoyable, and delicious - Just like a glass of biotin smoothie.

Can Smoothies Help Grow Hair?

Yes! A glass of hair growth smoothie that’s filled with fruit and vegetable combination can surely encourage healthy and thick hair growth. Fruits and vegetables are a rich source of nutrients you body needs to grow hair. Leafy greens, nuts, and avocados are some of the best ingredients to use due to their high nutritive value. They are loaded with antioxidants and Omega acids that your hair will absolutely thank you for!
