What Is Biotin?
Support for healthy hair, nails, and much more!
Biotin is one of the most popular supplements for supporting hair, skin, and nail health. Biotin encourages a radiant appearance by nutritionally supporting the skin from the inside out. Biotin is also important for a healthy metabolism because of its role in converting fats and carbohydrates from food into energy.
The Top 5 Reasons You Need Biotin
1. Nutritionally Support Hair
Biotin is included in many hair products like shampoo and conditioner. However, it’s much more effective when it’s consumed within the diet rather than applied on the outside of the hair. Biotin can help improve the hair you have and can make it appear fuller by supporting hair follicle bulb size.
2. Promote Stronger Nails
Weak nails are fragile, brittle, and can be easily split or cracked, which is often attributed to dryness and dehydration of the protein keratin. Biotin may help support your body maintain both nail strength and thickness through its function as a coenzyme support for protein synthesis.
3. Support Hair Growth
Waiting for your hair to grow can feel like an eternity. Unlike topical hair products, ingesting biotin helps you receive all of its benefits in a fast and effective way.
4. Encourages Radiant Skin
Biotin supports glowing, radiant skin by helping your body fight against dry, cracking skin. By addressing these skin problems at a cellular level, you may see a difference in the appearance of skin on your hands and face.
5. Supports Metabolic Function
Biotin supports several metabolic functions of the body. It helps convert glucose from food into usable energy and helps the body use amino acids from proteins. All of this helps maintain a healthy metabolism.
