Supports soft, clear skin, and strong, healthy hair and nails. Conditions such as brittle nails and alopecia have been linked with biotin deficiency or seen clinical benefit with its supplementation. Biotin is a water-soluble, rare food nutrient that can also be produced by bacteria in a well-functioning digestive system.
Also known as vitamin B7, biotin plays a key role in the development and maintenance of soft, clear skin, and strong, healthy hair and nails. Issues ranging from brittle nails to alopecia have either been linked with biotin deficiency or seen clinical benefit with its supplementation.
Research also shows that biotin aids in a number of important digestive and metabolic processes. It supports the regulation of glucose levels, contributes to fatty acid synthesis, and promotes the breakdown of the branched-chain amino acids, leucine, isoleucine and valine.
Most recently, clinical evidence is suggesting a neuroprotective effect with biotin, potentially supporting healthy brain and nervous system functioning.
