Biotin and hair
Biotin (vitamin B7) was initially called vitamin H, thanks to its effect on hair and skin, and today, you often find biotin as an ingredient in dietary supplements for hair and skin. Biotin helps maintain hair, skin, and nail quality and low levels of biotin can sometimes be seen in just that – the quality of hair and skin. Biotin is a popular vitamin and its effect on the hair is one of the main reasons for it.
Biotin also has other functions in the body, such as contributing to normal psychological function, nerve function, and metabolism. As a vitamin B, biotin is involved in the metabolism of energising nutrients and is important for the citric acid cycle, where energy is generated.
Biotin in food
Biotin is found in much of the food we eat and egg yolk, liver, and oatmeal are prominent sources of vitamin B7. Biotin can also, to some extent, be produced in our own intestines, if we have a well-functioning intestinal flora.
