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.
