Biotin is an essential nutrient that is required for cell growth and for the production of fatty acids. Biotin is necessary for the metabolism and release of energy from carbohydrates, proteins and fats and is essential for the proper utilization of the other B-complex vitamins. Biotin contributes to healthy skin and hair, and may play a role in preventing hair loss.  Biotin is essential for gluconegenesis and fatty acid synthesis.  Diabetics may also benefit from Biotin. Besides hair loss, a deficiency of Biotin may also cause eczema, dermatitis, skin disorders, heart and lung problems, anaemia, fatigue, mental depression, muscle pain, conjunctivitis, high blood cholesterol, loss of appetite and nausea. Skin rashes and acidosis can develop in infants.
