Let’s talk Biotin
What is Biotin?
Biotin is a co-enzyme and a B vitamin and is also known as vitamin H or B7. As a supplement, biotin is sometimes used for hair loss, brittle nails, diabetes, and other conditions.
It also plays key roles in supporting the health of the skin, nerves, digestive tract, metabolism, and cells. It has been proven that biotin may also help to treat some types of nerve pathology, such as the peripheral neuropathy that can result from kidney failure or diabetes.
How do we get Biotin?
Biotin is naturally found in many foods like whole-grain cereals and breads, wheat germ, eggs, dairy products, nuts, and in meats like chicken and salmon. These are all good sources of biotin.
Did you know?
Even though we can get biotin in many of the foods mentioned above, the biotin in food is usually attached to protein, which is poorly absorbed. This is why people result to taking it as a supplement. Until now, it has only been offered in a pill form.
