What is Biotin?

Biotin is the naturally occurring vitamin that falls under the B Complex umbrella of vitamins and can be found in many different food types. Also known as Vitamin H, it supports your body to convert food into energy. The very word ‘Biotin’ derives from the ancient Greek word “biotis”, which translates to “sustenance” or “life”. We think the Ancient Greeks are definitely onto something here! Biotin is a crucial nutrient that we often forget about, but it supports our skin, nails, hair, and overall health! Like all vitamins, there is a risk of not getting enough of Biotin from your natural diet - which is where we come in! Taking a natural biotin supplement is easy even when you’re on-the-go, so you can get your dose of biotin without a fuss! 


Which Foods Contain Biotin?

Many foods are rich with natural biotin, but the processing of said foods can reduce the natural levels or impede the absorption potential of the biotin by your body, which is why taking a supplement gives you the peace of mind that you are getting a healthy dose! Most naturally occurring biotin is bound to protein, so it can be harder for vegetarians and vegans to get their fair share of biotin into their diets, but there are alternatives to meat that also hold high levels of this crucial vitamin.

Biotin-rich foods:

  • Organ meats such as beef liver or kidney
  • Meats such as pork or beef 
  • Cooked whole eggs
  • Fish, particularly salmon or tuna
  • Sunflower seeds
  • Roasted almonds
  • Sweet potatoes (Kumara)
  • Spinach
  • Broccoli
  • Milk
  • Plain Yoghurt
  • Oatmeal
  • Cheddar cheese
  • Bananas
  • Apples
  • Whole wheat bread


Additional Benefits of Biotin

While useful for supporting naturally thick and luscious hair, biotin has a wide range of health benefits besides the wonders it can do for your scalp. 

  • Stronger Nails - Biotin is also a natural supplement to support long and healthy nails. 
  • Clear Skin - Support your skin for a clearer, fresher and youthful glow! 
  • Healthy Digestion - For healthy absorption of foods to support your energy levels and overall gut health!
