What is Biotin?
Biotin is a water-soluble vitamin, once called coenzyme R and vitamin H - the H stood for Haar und Haut, meaning 'hair and skin' in German. Today it is more commonly known as Vitamin B7. Although Biotin is found in small quantities in a range of food products, the micronutrient is naturally produced by some bacteria in the gut. Food sources containing Biotin include those from animal origins, such as eggs, pork and dairy products, and plant-based foods, such as oats, rice, mushrooms, spinach, carrots, apples and tomatoes.
Benefits of Biotin
Biotin contributes to the maintenance of normal hair, skin and mucous membranes, as well as both a normal energy yielding metabolism and macronutrient metabolism (carbohydrates, protein and fat). The nutrient also contributes to the normal functioning of the nervous system, alongside normal psychological function. It is often suggested that Biotin should be supplemented when Biotin dietary intake is low. For instance, those who have undergone rapid weight loss may have rapidly reduced their food consumption, limiting their Biotin intake.
