What is biotin? It’s a B vitamin, but it’s also known as vitamin H. Not to worry. Biotin benefits aren’t nearly as confusing as its name. This water-soluble vitamin supports the breakdown of fatty acids into energy and can help strengthen brittle nails.† In short: it’s essential for a healthy body head to toe.
There’s no recommended daily amount, but your body doesn’t store biotin. That means you must continually replace it. This is especially important if your diet lacks eggs, cheese and wheat. Paleo eaters and vegans may have a particularly hard time getting adequate amounts of biotin. So “B” mindful of the foods you eat and always supplement your diet as needed.
