HEALTHY HAIR GROWTH WITH BIOTIN


Hair growth is a natural process and is genetic. The blood flowing in your scalp goes to the follicle and supplies oxygen and other nutrients to the hair root, resulting in hair growth. Who would not love beautiful and thick hair? In this post, we would cover how biotin helps in hair growth. Let us first understand the factors that affect hair growth.



✅ Diet- Focus on having a healthy diet and avoid restrict-dieting. Restrict-dieting can not only affect your body but your hair as well. When your hair stops getting the required nutrition, it may start shedding or can lose the shine and can get dry as well.

✅ Prefer a Protein-rich Diet- Include a minimum of 50 gm protein intake in your daily diet. In case if you are vegetarian, take pulses, sprouts, kidney beans etc. Non-vegetarians can take fish as a source of protein.

✅ Other Nutrients- Not only protein but include other nutrients in your food plan as well. Other nutrients for a healthy hair-growth can be-

 

* Biotin

* Iron

* Vitamin C, D, and E

* Zinc

* Omega-3 and Omega-6

 

✅ Massaging your Hair - It is necessary to massage your scalp with a good oil regularly. A good massage not only relieves stress but increases blood flow and helps your hair grow faster. It thickens your hair and provides a healthy amount of nutrition to your hair. Choose essential oils to fasten the process even more. Various essential oils like rosemary oil, peppermint oil, pumpkin seed oil, jojoba oil, may increase your hair count as well.

✅ Watch-out the Heat- Hair-Straightening or Hot Iron Hair-Curling, Blow Drying are the Modern Era’s fashion statement. But watch-out while doing these activities or at least do not overdo these. Regular heat may damage your hair and can affect hair growth as well. Try decreasing the temperature of the heating device such as Hair-Straightener, Curling Iron or Hair Dryer. Although there are heat protectants available in the market which can be used to protect the hair from getting damaged.

✅ Avoid colouring your hair on a regular basis- Putting hair-dye or colour into your hair scalp on a regular basis can cause hair breakage. The chemicals used in hair colour products give stress to your hair, hence hair-fall persists.

 

Why Biotin is important for Hair-growth?

Who does not want to have those picture-perfect shiny and lengthy hair! And why is the market flooded with Keratin smooth shampoos or why do they ask you to have Keratin smooth hair?

What is Keratin and how it is related to Biotin?

Keratin is a basic protein that maintains good hair, skin, and nail health. While Biotin helps in producing Keratin in the body and improves Keratin infrastructure. Keratin reduces the fizziness, works on split ends reduction, and helps to bond the hair back together.

Biotin is basically a water-soluble vitamin. Biotin is found in various veg and non-veg foods. It is also called vitamin B7 or Vitamin H.

Biotin is on the top of the list when we talk of Hair-food. Following are some Biotin Rich Foods-


* Cucumber

* Eggs

* Whole Grains

* Organ Meat especially Pork Liver.

* Walnuts

* peanuts

* Almonds

* Cauliflower

* Broccoli

* Spinach

* Mushroom

* Dairy products such as Milk, Curd, or Cheese.

* Chicken

* Bananas

* Apples

* Tomatoes

* Potatoes

* Carrots

* Legumes such as peas and beans

* Lettuce and a lot more.

 

The above pointers summarize the fact our daily food intake has the required amount of Biotin.

But in this busy life of today, we often skip meals and miss to get the daily nutrition need of our body. Supplements have become a part of life. But while taking supplements we usually focus on Iron, Calcium, or Multi-vitamin, not on Biotin.

If you are facing any Biotin Deficiency issues, along with trying Biotin-rich shampoos and conditioners for your hair, your doctor can advise you to take Biotin Supplements which will have a positive effect on your body as well as on your hair.

According to a Case study 2015, Biotin is good for Hair Growth. Taking an adequate amount of Biotin is good for hair strengthening. The study says that after using Biotin supplements for around 80-190 days, there tends to be an increase in hair in men and women.

It is to be noted that, no supplements should be taken without any medical supervision. It is better to have a nutritional diet and save yourself from malnutrition. Keep a check on what and how much are you eating. Keeping a scale might lead to less health, hair, or skin problems.

This will help you in resolving your issue of Hair-growth and how you can add Biotin to your diet to have a healthy Hair-growth!

Stay healthy! Stay happy!

Literia Insight tries to produce short films on various societal themes and PARCHHAI is not an exception.”

The film is being produced by Nitish Raj. Mr. Raj has also produced the award-winning short film, Zindagi which was based on one of the stories of his debut Short-Story collection, ‘Love In Modern Times’. In the words of Nitish Raj, “The job of a producer is to not just ensure the quality of the work but also have a look at the other aspects which could infuse a sense of positivity. We need to understand the demarcation between good and bad. We are constantly trying to make films on such themes which could leave a long-lasting impact on the minds of the viewers.”

PARCHHAI tries to make us aware of the basic traits of an individual which makes us a complete human being as we shouldn’t mock a person in adversity. As unwanted circumstances can happen in anyone’s life, so it becomes imperative that we focus on our strengths in order to grow in life.

Expectations vs. Reality

 

✅ Expectation: Healthy Eating Will Increase Your Grocery Bill

While the facts demonstrate that a pack of Ramen noodles will be less expensive than, maybe a stacking sack loaded with new products that are not exactly a reasonable correlation. Better nourishments can be extended to last more than a solitary comfort supper and there are a lot of minimal effort sound alternatives.

 

✅ Reality: Healthy Eating Doesn't involve a lot of money

How might you eat well without spending more? You're presumably used to seeing packs of oily nibble nourishments on sale, yet you're similarly prone to get an extraordinary arrangement on new produce, genuine meat, and solid titbits. Investigate strategies for safeguarding produce so you can load up when it's on sale and use it for quite a long time or months to come.

It's completely conceivable to eat well without beginning any preparation consistently. Truth be told, a few plans let you abstain from cooking altogether.

 

✅ Reality: Healthy Eating Can Be Convenient and quick as well

You may have been eventually told that frozen or canned foods grown from the ground aren't as great as the new forms. Frozen or canned produce actually packs huge loads of sustenance and is simpler to throw into plans. Try not to preclude other canned merchandise, all things considered. There are a lot of solid, super-quick suppers you can make with a basic container of fish. Yoghurt can be matched with different fixings (like frozen foods grown from the ground) for a morning meal that requires minimal movement such as opening a holder. Stowed or boxed things like beans (which are stacked with protein and fibre) and quinoa (which is anything but difficult to match with different elements for a sound, good feast) offer a lot of wholesome advantages and are anything but difficult to cook with.

A little care will help you ensure you're actually eating well when you're not at home.

 

✅ Reality: It is easy to eat healthy food at a restaurant

Most eateries post their menus on the web, so look at their determination before you actually take off from the house. Arranging what you're venturing out in front of time kills the pressure of picking rapidly once you're finding a seat at the table.

Try not to be reluctant to pose inquiries or solicitation replacements. Pick solid other options (like steamed vegetables) to normal contributions like fries. Stick to water rather than pop or other sweet beverages. Consider fish as a low-fat, low-sodium option in contrast to different meats. On the off chance that a menu depiction leaves you with waiting concerns, ask the server or server to portray how the dish is readied. Adhere to these tips and the outcome will be a fantastic, peaceful night out.

They do fasting thinking that they will become slim very soon which they expect and the reality comes up with eating favourite food that the person mostly craves after fasting.

The social story of compassionate and beneficent Doctor Govathi Nikhila

It was a moment of pride for Dr Govathi Nikhila when she received the prestigious Best Young Researcher Award at the National Gratitude Awards ceremony in March 2020. Her consistent hard work, grit, and determination were finally recognized. But she had never done it to fetch awards and popularity all that the motivated woman wanted was to articulately and holistically describe the reasons behind dysphagia. 

Apart from being a competent medical professional, Nikhila is a kind-hearted lady who believes in the power of social work and feels that no human being should be deprived of medical facilities because of their economic and social backwardness. Her magnanimous personality has come to the rescue of many people in need during the treacherous Coronavirus Pandemic, technically called Covid-19.



Helping during the pandemic

Days after she received the award, the Covid-19 pandemic began making inroads into India, and a Nationwide Lockdown was imposed to curb its menace. A sense of panic, disquiet, and fear prevailed across the nation. The novel nature of the virus had even experts stumbling for possible solutions. There was a scarcity of beds, ventilators, ICUs, oxygen cylinders, etc., and patients were running helplessly from hospital to hospital in search of vacancies. At that time, Dr Govathi was in Hyderabad and was approached by the families of many Covid patients for help. They were in dire need of oxygen cylinders and had her as their last hope. Though the lady doctor was not very influential, her determination to help was strong enough to fetch successful results. She rummaged through her contacts and, somehow, managed to get the required number of cylinders for the seekers. The experience moved her a lot, and she decided to assist the patients in need. Govathi purchased some oxygen cylinders with her own money and distributed them free of cost to the patients hailing from a poor financial background. She also provided PPE kits to nurses and other members of a nearby hospital. Her knack to be at the forefront in times of crisis made her travel to rural areas and conduct Covid tests free of cost. The benevolent woman has since then been trying to reach out to as many affected people as possible. With meals, clothes, and other necessary things, she has regularly been available to those without proper shelter. Her aim has always been to bring positivity in such trying times when people need to be overt with the humane values they carry.


 

Tips to stay afloat until the pandemic wanes

When the entire world is waiting for an effective vaccine for the virus, Nikhila feels people should take responsibility and adopt a healthy lifestyle. It is imperative to focus on the prevention of the spread of the virus, which is only possible with the use of masks, sanitisers, and good hygiene habits. One must include a diet that can help in boosting immunity and avert future ailments. Though it is mentally tough to stay afar from loved ones, one must always maintain physical distancing until the situation improves. Only the advent of a vaccine won’t help the initiative has to come from the general public. We, as a society, need to take the task into our hands and complement the efforts made by the government, security personnel, and the Corona Warriors, as the medical fraternity has come to be popularly known. Only then could we overcome this disaster and do justice to the sacrifices made by them.


 

Intelligent, polite, selfless, and altruistic are the words to describe the personality of Dr. Govathi Nikhila. She has not only come out as a leading young researcher but also as a social pillar that the country needed in Corona times. Her benignant efforts have saved many lives while further motivating others to help those in need. She has created an opportunity out of adversity and reached out to the people at the last thread of our social structure. Moreover, her attitude has remained positive while dealing with difficult situations and limited resources. Surely, we need more people like the gracious doctor to keep the values of humanity alive.
