Description

What is biotin?

The name biotin comes from the Greek word for life (Bios), and is a water soluble vitamin also known as vitamin B7.

Why does it matter to me? 

It is critical in the catalysing of some amino acids that are in turn vital to the healthy arrangement and activity of our cells, tissues and organs.


Biotin along with folate appears to play a role in the regulation of inflammation (unregulated inflammation leads to diseases like rheumatoid arthritis)3,4.

Did you know?

It is needed by all living things
It plays a key role in the way our bodies get energy from fats, proteins and sugars1
It has been shown to be a vital part of the way our bodies regulate cell activity (irregular cell activity can lead to cancer)2

Biotin is required to prevent damage to DNA

Biotin research

Mounting evidence shows that biotin plays a key role in DNA replication and arrangement.

Research also suggests that pregnant women should ensure adequate intakes of biotin to protect their babies from potential defects5,6.

How much should I have?

We are using the EFSA’s AI (adequate intake) values for children, men, women, and pregnant women. The AI is set at a level assumed to be optimum to contribute to a reduction in the risk of chronic disease.
