Biotin is part of the B vitamin family: a group that consists of many essential nutrients for the body.
Biotin is also known as Vitamin H. Why H? It comes from the German phrase haar und haut, which means hair and skin. So it shouldn't come as a surprise that Biotin helps support hair, skin and nail health.
Healthy-looking hair, skin and nails—what's not to like about that? Beyond looking your best, Biotin helps you feel your best as well. Biotin, like all the B vitamins, plays a role in energy metabolism. It aids in converting food into energy and assists in protein and fat metabolism. It also promotes carbohydrate metabolism, making them available for oxidation and energy. Biotin is an essential part of the intermediate metabolism of carbohydrates, proteins and fats.
