Biotin, also known as vitamin H, is one of the B complex vitamins and helps the body convert food into energy. The word ‘biotin’ actually comes from the Greek word ‘biotos’ and means ‘life’ or sustenance’. B vitamins (especially baton) can help promote healthy skin, hair and eyes whilst maintaining a healthy nervous system. Biotin is also crucial during pregnancy as it supports embryonic growth.
Many people get enough biotin with a healthy diet, however, it’s also been said that getting more biotin (not to an excessive amount) can help maintain our blood sugar levels, support those with diabetes and overall, keep our bodies healthy and functioning correctly.
