Pathway Biotin

There is only week left to take advantage of Village Green Apothecary’s sale on Pathway products, including Pathway Biotin.

Biotin is a water soluble, sulphur-containing member of the B complex. Biotin is most well known for its promotion of healthy hair and skin. Essential to human nutrition, it is also involved in the biosynthesis of fatty acids, energy production and metabolism. Deficiencies may occur with excessive consumption of alcohol, refined foods and raw egg whites. Raw egg whites contain a protein called avidin which inhibits biotin absorption.

Here are three reasons to take biotin:

1.Skin, Hair and Nails: Studies have shown that taking supplemental biotin may increase the strength and thickness of fingernails.

2. Diabetes: Biotin deficiency results in impaired utilization of glucose. Supplementing with biotin has been shown to support healthy blood glucose levels.

3. Elevated Triglycerides: Clinical studies have shown that biotin can significantly lower elevated triglycerides and very low-density lipoproteins (VLDL).

Best Organic Shampoo

Last time I reviewed the chemicals you don’t want in a shampoo. What ingredients do you want for safe and effective results, and which brands are best?

The best ingredients are “certified organic,” next best are ‘organic.” Most top-performing organic shampoos provide a combination of ingredients that cleanse and moisturize. If you have dry hair, use a conditioner—and leave it on for 3-5 minutes, so you get the benefits. There are organic formulas targeted for all hair types; I test all the safe, new ones that come to my attention. Continue reading “Best Organic Shampoo”
