Biotin (B7)

Be the first to leave a review
Vitamin B7, more commonly known as biotin, is part of the B complex group of vitamins. All B vitamins help the body to convert food (carbohydrates) into fuel (glucose), which is used to produce energy. These B vitamins, often referred to as B complex vitamins, also help the body metabolize fats and protein. B complex vitamins are needed for healthy skin, hair, eyes, and liver. They also help the nervous system function properly.

Your body needs biotin to metabolize carbohydrates, fats, and amino acids, the building blocks of protein. Biotin is often recommended for strengthening hair and nails, and it's found in many cosmetic products for hair and skin. Additionally, biotin is important for normal embryonic growth, making it a critical nutrient during pregnancy.

Like all B vitamins, it is water soluble, meaning the body does not store it. Even though bacteria in the gut can make biotin, people with conditions like Crohn's disease are more likely to be deficient in biotin.
