Vitamin B7, also known as biotin, is often referred to as the beauty vitamin as it thickens hair, nails and beautifies skin. So much so, you are likely to find biotin added to many beauty products in your bathroom cabinet. There are in fact eight different types of biotin, but only one is natural with all seven others being synthesised. Don’t believe any company who tells you that the synthetics are just as good. Marketers who talk of vitamin H (for hair) or vitamin 8 are normally referring to synthetic versions of biotin. Vitamin B7 works as a coenzyme with other vitamin Bs to metabolise all three macronutrients.
