What Is Biotin?

Biotin, also known as vitamin H, is a member of the vitamin B complex family. Its primary responsibility includes turning the nutrients we ingest (i.e. proteins, fats and carbohydrates) into energy. This is important as many of our daily functions — think metabolic, digestive and cardiovascular — wouldn't happen without it!**

If you're someone who's thinking "I feel like I've seen biotin before" you probably aren't wrong! In general, biotin is a common ingredient behind supplements that work to support hair, skin and nails.** (Which is relevant, given our next question...)

Do Biotin Supplements Help With Hair Health?

This is one of the most popular asks when it comes to biotin and biotin supplements (and for good reason!). On top of the critical health functions we previously mentioned, biotin vitamins have been popularized due to their alleged beauty benefits. For example, some individuals who’ve increased their biotin intake have reported healthier hair, skin and nails.**

That said, as always, we recommend consulting your licensed healthcare professional to decide whether a dietary supplement will be a helpful addition to your regimen.

How Can I Add Biotin To My Diet?

The good news is there are natural sources of biotin. Egg yolk, almonds, nut butter, cauliflower, bananas and mushrooms, among other common foods, contain the vitamin. You can also add a scoop or two of any one of our biotin supplements listed below, for a refreshing (and beautiful!), start to your day.
