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. Taking carbohydrates and making glucose is one of the main jobs for Biotin, it’s not stored in the body though so you need to keep it topped up. The word ‘Biotin’ is actually derived 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, and with the Good Vitamin Co. Biotin Gummies, you can get your daily dose of without having to cook a biotin-rich meal.

Which Foods Contain Biotin?
