Biotin is an essential nutrient for numerous enzyme systems in the body and is vital for the breakdown of carbohydrates, fats, and protein into energy. Biotin is a vital nutrient for the prevention of nail brittleness and splitting, helping to promote strong, healthy nails while encouraging thicker, healthier hair.
In addition to reducing nail brittleness and splitting, Biotin has been shown to improve the appearance of nails by increasing nail thickness by approximately 25%. An estimated one in five people have brittle nails, which can cause nail splitting and pain, embarrassment over nail appearance, and may even interfere with work and daily life.
Biotin also encourages the growth of strong, thick, healthy-looking hair. It can help reverse hair loss and changes in hair colour that may result from a biotin deficiency. Some dry skin conditions can also benefit from biotin supplementation as this nutrient supports the production of fatty acids essential for skin health.
