Biotin, also known as vitamin H, is a B complex vitamin that helps the body to convert food into glucose for energy. Biotin is an essential coenzyme for a variety of carboxylation reactions. It is involved in the metabolism of fats, sugars, and amino acids, the breakdown and utilization of fatty acids in energy production, and the synthesis of protein from amino acids.
B vitamins, and specifically biotin, also help to keep the skin, hair, eyes, liver, and nervous system healthy. Individuals who are deficient in biotin may have symptoms of hair loss or a scaly red rash on the skin.
