Biotin for Healthy Skin, Hair, and Nails: Does it Really Work?

We are seriously head over heels for two things:

  1. Witnessing your beyond belief results; and

  2. Sharing natural health and beauty tips with you

Last year, we launched our signature skincare line. Included in the lineup is a strong supplement called Biotin.

But what is does it do? Does it really work? Let’s talk about it.

Also known as B7, biotin is a water-soluble B vitamin important for energy levels, building healthy tissue and digestion.

5 key benefits of Biotin

  1. Healthy Hair, Nails & Skin

Studies show that taking high doses of biotin can help treat weak hair and nails. It’s proven to improve the firmness, hardness and thickness of nails. It also keeps your skin smooth, firm, and healthy.

Supplementing with biotin was effective! Vitamin B7 biotin can also help to protect skin from acne, fungal infections, rashes, and severe dryness and cracking.

Fun Fact: These benefits of biotin were first discovered when treating horses to correct brittle and cracking hoofs.

  1. Supports a Healthy Digestion, Metabolism & Nutrient Absorption

B vitamins are needed to convert food into usable energy. Vitamin B7 does this in several ways:

  • It converts glucose from carbohydrates and sugar sources into useable ‘fuel’ that is the body’s preferred source of energy

  • It helps the body use amino acids to carry our multiple body functions.

  • It activates fatty acids from fat-containing foods like oils or animal fats.

  1. Supports Adrenal Function and Thyroid Health

The thyroid and adrenal glands are responsible for many bodily functions and states like hunger, sleep, pain perception, mood, and energy.

A deficiency in B vitamins can result in thyroid and adrenal complications that can result in symptoms such as fatigue, weight gain or loss, trouble sleeping, and more! 😵

  1. Supports the Nervous System and Protects Brain Function

Vitamin B7 benefits the nervous system because of its role in nerve signaling and neurotransmitter activity. B vitamins are important for memory function and protecting your brain against age-related cognitive impairment, such as neurodegenerative disorders like Alzheimer’s disease or dementia.

  1. May Helps Manage Type II Diabetes

This is such good news. Biotin, especially when combined with chromium, has been shown to help lower blood sugar in people with diabetes.

As we learned earlier, biotin facilitates the activity of insulin, which is the crucial hormone needed to bring blood sugar back to a balanced state.
