Biotin Facts: Beautiful Skin and Healthier Hair

B complex vitamin

Recently biotin has been receiving a lot of attention, and its key ingredient vitamin H helps to promote lustrous hair, strong nails, and glowing skin.

Vitamin H, more commonly known as Biotin, is part of the B complex group of vitamins. All B vitamins help the body to adapt carbohydrates from the food into glucose by facilitating the metabolism of fats and then breaking down of proteins into amino acids, which is necessary for building new cells. Biotin’s ability to metabolize carbohydrates leads to cellular respiration support, which makes your hair and nails grow stronger and faster, skin gets a healthier glow and stays younger longer.

B complex vitamins are extremely important for healthy eyes and liver, very effective in maintaining the digestive tract and level of blood sugar, and also helps the nervous system function properly.

Since the B complex group of vitamins are water-soluble, the human body does not store them, so be sure you can get enough from dietary sources. Biotin can be found in brewer’s yeast, cooked eggs, especially egg yolk, sardines, nuts (almonds, peanuts, pecans, walnuts) and nut butters, soybeans, other legumes (beans, black eye peas), whole grains, cauliflower, bananas, and mushrooms. The best way to get biotin is from dietary sources, but most people still need to take biotin supplements.

Always follow your doctor’s advice before taking any new vitamin, and follow your doctor’s recommendations on the daily amounts. Fortunately, it is extremely difficult to overdose on biotin, because excess biotin is eliminated from your body. Biotin is non-toxic and 100% free of animal products ,and available in multivitamins and B-vitamin complexes, as well as individual supplements.  And remember that Biotin is just one of many important vitamins, so be sure to follow a healthy diet to get the right nutrition from fruits and vegetables.
