What is Biotin and Why Should I Take It?

Question: What is biotin and why should I take it?

Biotin is a water-soluble vitamin and a member of the B-complex group. Biotin, also known as Vitamin H, is essential for the normal metabolism of fat, protein and carbohydrates. Biotin works with your body to produce energy by helping to break down the proteins in your diet. Biotin also helps your body obtain energy from other foods that you eat. While this is a great reason to take biotin, this is surprisingly not the main reason people choose to take it.

Biotin is known more for its ability to provide nutritional support for healthy hair, skin and nails. This product is known for making hair less brittle, skin brighter and nails thicker. What you put into your body shows on the outside. Clearly, biotin is a good choice for your supplementation routine. Swanson Premium Brand Biotin provides 5 mg per serving, which is just one capsule per day with water. By taking Swanson Premium Brand Biotin, you will enhance your energy and appearance, benefits important to everyone.
