    The Benefits of Biotin IV Therapy

      |  Nov 29, 2023

    Browse any supplement aisle, health food store, or beauty blog and you’re sure to encounter a much loved ingredient among the health and wellness crowd: biotin. The vitamin, also known as B7 or Vitamin H, has been touted for its ability to improve the health and strength of hair and skin. In fact, its name derives from the Greek word “biotos” — meaning sustenance or life-giving — and the H in Vitamin H stands for hair. 

    Biotin’s popularity has made it ubiquitous as an ingredient in wellness supplements. You might find it combined with other nutrients, like zinc or folic acid, or on its own as a once daily supplement. But pills or gummies aren’t the only way to add biotin to your diet – in fact, they might not even be the most effective. Enter: IV therapy. 


    What is biotin?

    Let’s start with the basics. Biotin is a water-soluble B vitamin: the body doesn’t store biotin naturally, so we must ingest it on a regular basis through our diet. It’s likely that your current diet contains an adequate amount of biotin, which is found in foods including eggs, sweet potatoes, avocados, nuts, and seeds. 

    How does biotin work? Biotin helps create energy for the body by aiding in the processing of glucose, fats, and proteins. These processes result in enzymes, which assist in the formation of fatty acids that nourish skin and keep it smooth and hydrated. Biotin is also necessary for the production of keratin, which maintains hair growth and strength. 

    People who don’t consume an adequate amount of biotin might experience symptoms ranging from thinning hair to dry skin and even depression. Biotin deficiency is rare in developed countries, but patients without a diagnosed deficiency can still benefit from its effects. The powerful vitamin has been shown to support hair health and prevent hair loss, while maintaining healthy skin and combatting signs of aging.

    Biotin in IV Therapy

    Biotin supplements have become a popular product for supporting hair, skin, and nail health, and are widely available online and in stores. Like most supplements, biotin must be taken once or twice a day, and can take up to 4 months to see results

    If you’re not interested in taking a daily pill, IV therapy with biotin might be right for you. IV therapy allows essential nutrients and vitamins (like biotin) to bypass the digestive system and enter straight into the bloodstream. This provides you with the highest concentration of the vitamin possible, and takes only 45 minutes. Plus, biotin can be combined with other ingredients to boost performance and drive results. Modern Age’s IV for Skin & Hair Health combines biotin and vitamin C to nourish your skin and hair from the inside out.
