Biotin is an important nutrient for the body. The benefits of biotin are very diverse, ranging from keeping blood sugar levels stable to maintaining healthy hair. To find out more about the benefits of biotin, see the explanation in the following article. 

Biotin or also known as vitamin B7 is a type of vitamin B complex. Vitamins that are classified as water-soluble vitamins function as enzymes that can convert fats and carbohydrates in food into energy and produce the protein needed by the body. Biotin is also known to have various benefits for body health and beauty.

The following are some of the benefits of biotin for health and beauty:

Prevent congenital abnormalities in the fetus
While in the womb, the fetus needs a lot of nutritional intake for the formation of its organs and tissues. These various nutrients include folic acid, carbohydrates, protein, and biotin. Several studies have shown that lack of nutrients during pregnancy, including biotin, can increase the risk of the fetus developing congenital defects (congenital abnormalities) and low birth weight. 

Therefore, it is important for pregnant women to meet their nutritional needs, including biotin intake. If necessary, pregnant women can consult a doctor to get additional biotin supplements during pregnancy.

Keeping blood sugar stable 
Biotin is a type of nutrient that can support the work of the insulin hormone in regulating blood sugar levels and preventing insulin resistance. Several studies have also shown that adequate biotin intake can prevent type 2 diabetes and nerve damage due to the disease. 

Increase good cholesterol levels 
Apart from being good for preventing and controlling diabetes, biotin intake accompanied by a healthy diet and lifestyle can also increase levels of good cholesterol or high-density lipoprotein (HDL). However, further research is still needed to prove the benefits of this one biotin.

Maintain nail strength
Are your toenails or nails brittle and break easily? If so, you can take biotin supplements as one way to overcome this. The reason is that biotin is known to support the growth of nail tissue and keep it strong.

Overcoming hair loss 
Several studies have shown that using supplements or hair care products that contain biotin is beneficial for nourishing hair. Biotin is also said to be able to thicken and make hair shinier and prevent hair loss. Unfortunately, some of the claims for the benefits of biotin above still need further investigation.  However, there is nothing wrong with meeting the needs of biotin from a nutritionally balanced diet or biotin supplements according to doctor’s recommendations.

So, for adults over the age of 18 are recommended to meet a biotin intake of 30–100 micrograms per day. This vitamin can be obtained from several types of food, such as bread and wheat cereals, beef liver, nuts, salmon, chicken, eggs, and dairy products.

However, you still need to pay attention to the following symptoms of biotin deficiency such as thinning hair, hair color is fading, red rash around eyes, nose, and mouth, itching or tingling in the hands and feet, depression and hallucinations.
