Biotin is an important vitamin for your body. Your metabolism‚ which controls the chemical reactions and processes in your body that convert food and other substances into energy‚ relies on biotin to function properly. In addition‚ it supports the nervous and cardiovascular systems. Biotin supports healthy and shiny nails‚ hair‚ and skin.
Potential symptoms of a biotin deficiency include dry skin‚ brittle nails‚ hair loss‚ and muscle cramps after exercise or physical exertion. It can also cause seborrheic dermatitis—flaky skin found that can occur anywhere on your body and scalp)—along with muscle weakness and an inflamed bowel.
You may be able to reverse or prevent these symptoms when they’re caused by a lack of biotin through by eating a balanced diet that contains chard and other vegetables‚ egg yolks‚ and meats (especially organ meat). A biotin supplement can also help you‚ especially if you don’t consume animal products.
Biotin 8 mg is a good way to boost your biotin levels. Each vegan capsule provides eight milligrams of the B complex vitamin.
