Biotin, also known as vitamin H and coenzyme R, is a water-soluble vitamin and also belongs to vitamin B group, B7. It is an essential substance for the synthesis of vitamin C and an indispensable substance for the normal metabolism of fat and protein. It is a necessary nutrient to maintain human natural growth, development and normal human functional health.
Maintenance of Healthy Skin, Hair and Nails
Signs of biotin deficiency can include thinning hair, brittle nails and problem with the skin. Biotin cannot be absorbed though hair or skin, despite being added to products that are applied to these areas, and so must be ingested to have any significant effect. There is some research to suggest that a high dose of biotin can help to strengthen weak hair and nails and this property was first discovered when the vitamin was used to treat brittleness and cracking in the hoofs of horses. Biotin is also a popular supplement with people who want to protect against skin conditions such as acne and dermatitis.
As a dietary supplement for adults, take one capsule daily with water or juice after meal.
