Vitamin H, otherwise known as biotin, is essential to, normal growth, development and overall health. It also reduces symptoms of zinc deficiency, it helps in the formation of fatty acids and it could relieve muscle pain and depression.
It plays a special role in enabling the body to use blood sugar (glucose), a major source of energy for body fluids. Biotin also helps produce certain enzymes.
Bacteria in the intestines produce enough biotin for the body so that most people would not need an additional supplement of vitamin H.
However, additional great sources of vitamin H are found in egg yolks, fish, nuts, oatmeal,chicken, cheese, peas bananas and beans.
