Biotin is a vitamin, also called vitamin B7. Like all B vitamins it’s water soluble, which means your body can’t store any extra.

As one of the B-complex vitamins, biotin plays a role in converting food into energy in the body. Getting enough biotin on a regular basis is an important part of maintaining a healthy metabolism.

Biotin, weight loss and digestive health

Biotin is needed both for production and function of enzymes that metabolize carbs, fats and protein. Biotin both supports metabolic function and can elevate your resting metabolic rate (causing food to break down faster) when consumed.

While biotin on its own isn’t considered a weight-loss supplement, it’s an important part of a healthy diet and lifestyle to keep your metabolism humming (and love handles at bay). Staying hydrated is another important factor in any weight loss plan, meaning IV therapy for weight loss helps in more ways than one.

Biotin supports the health of your digestive system by helping regulate cholesterol and blood sugar levels.

Biotin for hair, skin and nail health

Biotin was once called vitamin H. The H came from Harr und Haut (hair and skin in German). Biotin has a reputation for helping improve the health of hair, skin and fingernails because it improves the structure of keratin. Keratin is the main protein hair, skin and nails.

Biotin is involved in the protein synthesis that forms keratin, which explains why it is associated with strong and healthy hair, skin and nails.
