An intramuscular injection of Biotin (vitamin H)is given into the Deltoid muscle in the side of the upper arm. When injected into the muscle it passes quickly and easily into the blood stream. The procedure is very quick, you may feel a short, sharp pain during the injection.
The body does not absorb biotin when it is applied to the skin, this is why many individuals prefer biotin injections as the intramuscular injection increases biotin levels faster. These injections assist in the metabolism of fatty acids, carbohydrates, and protein. Its major benefit is strengthening hair and nails.
Biotin improves the protein that makes up hair, skin and nails. This protein is called keratin. Biotin deficiency can cause dry skin, brittle nails and hair, as well as hair loss.
Vitamin H deficiency can lead to significant problems with
- Skin (dry and itchy)
- Loss of hair
- Brittle nails
- Hormonal issues
Nourishing the skin from the inside is very important and can help with a multitude of problems. A biotin injection can correct these issues improving skin and helping to keep a youthful glow.
Higher doses of biotin have resulted in significant nail health improvement. Studies have shown that those who take a biotin supplement can thicken their nails by up to 25 percent and decrease the amount of nail splitting and breakage they endure.
