Vitamin B7 (Biotin)
Vitamin B7 is part of the B complex group of vitamins which help the body to convert food into fuel, which is used to produce energy. Biotin is needed for healthy skin, hair, eyes, and liver. They also help the nervous system function properly.

Converts macronutrients into energy

Biotin assists enzymes that activate reactions that are important for the production of fatty acids (fatty acid synthesis)
Biotin-containing enzymes are involved in the metabolism of several important amino acids, including leucine (amino acid breakdown)

Supports hair health
Boosts nutrient levels during pregnancy and breastfeeding

Your body needs biotin to metabolize carbohydrates, fats, and amino acids, the building blocks of protein. Biotin is often recommended for strengthening hair and nails. It is rare to be deficient in biotin. Symptoms include hair loss, dry scaly skin, cracking in the corners of the mouth (called cheilitis), swollen and painful tongue that is magenta in colour (glossitis), dry eyes, loss of appetite, fatigue, insomnia, and depression. People who have been on parenteral nutrition — nutrition given intravenously — for a long period of time, those taking antiseizure medication or antibiotics long-term, and people with conditions like Crohn’s disease that make it hard to absorb nutrients, are more likely to be deficient in biotin.
