Biotin Helps to Keep us Looking Young
Did you know?
Biotin (B7) is a nutrient that plays a major part that helps us keep a young, attractive appearance. It also helps in maintaining the health of our hair, nails and skin.
Biotin can be found in foods like organ meats, eggs, avocado, cauliflower, berries, fish, legumes and mushrooms. Biotin is a water-soluble vitamin that’s a part of the vitamin B complex – a group of key nutrients needed for healthy metabolic, nerve, digestive and cardiovascular functions.
Biotin acts as a co-enzyme in the body that’s needed for the metabolism of fatty acids, amino acids and glucose. This means that when we eat foods that are sources of fats, proteins and carbohydrates, vitamin B7 biotin must be present in order to convert and use these macronutrients for bodily energy, to carry out physical activities and for proper psychological functioning.
