Dermatologists often prescribe this B vitamin, important for cutaneous health, as a supplement for patients with hair loss. Found naturally in yeast, liver, and egg yolk, biotin is a major component of the natural hair manufacturing process, essential not only to grow new hair, but also for skin and nail health. Benefits of the biotin may result from its ability to improve the metabolism of scalp oils. Biotin penetrates the hair shaft directly, making it expand and thicken the cuticle. Biotin may also promote growth of new hair, since it is used by cells generally. It also helps with the production of fatty acids and the metabolism of fats and amino acids. It plays a key role in the Krebs cycle — the sequence of reactions in which oxidation of acetic acid provides energy for storage in phosphate bonds, such as in adenosine triphosphate. Biotin plays a key role in hair and skin health, helping to keep it thick and strong.
