It helps the body convert food into energy and plays many other important roles in health. it keeps organs such as the nervous system, hair, skin, liver, and eyes healthy. Our body does not store water-soluble vitamins, so we need to absorb them from their diets. Biotin deficiency is fairly rare, but pregnant women and people who drink high amounts of alcohol — may develop it.


Natural sources of biotin include:

● Egg and Egg Yolk

● Beef Liver

● Pork Chop

● Catfish

● Nutritional Yeast

Biotin works on the keratin system and amplifies it, resulting in better hair, skin, and nails. Further, depression and lethargy caused by biotin deficiency can be resolved via supplementation.
