Biotin, also known as vitamin B7, is a water-soluble B-complex vitamin essential for the growth and development of all organisms. It is a coenzyme which is involved in the metabolism of fatty acids, amino acids, and carbohydrates and has been shown to be important for many health factors including boosting energy levels, supporting overall mental wellbeing and also helps in maintaining a healthy nervous system.

It is important to maintain adequate Biotin levels, as low levels can slow down the metabolism, which can lead to fatigue, digestive issues, and weight gain.

Biotin boosts energy levels, supports overall mental wellbeing, and plays a role in maintaining healthy hair, skin, nails and nervous system. Each 500mcg capsule provides a maximum strength dose, giving you 90 servings of great health.
