Biotin is a B-complex vitamin and an important component of enzymes in the body that break down fats, proteins and carbohydrates. Biotin plays a significant role in the metabolic pathway of all cells including brain and nerve cells and is crucial for the normal functioning of the nervous system.
Involved in the synthesis of keratin, a protein responsible for hair, nails and skin surface strength, Biotin is a vital ingredient of all vitamin and mineral beauty formulas.
A lack of Biotin is rare. However, an occurrence may lead to a skin rash, loss of hair, high levels of cholesterol and heart problems.
