Biotin supplementation may be crucial in hair growth. Studies show that deficiencies in biotin, Zinc, folic acid and vitamin B12 are associated with male androgenetic alopecia (2) and premature canities (1) in Asians. Scientific opinion published by the European Food Safety Authority (EFSA) concludes that a strong correlation exists between the biotin supplementation and healthy hair (3).
