Are You Getting Enough Vitamin H?
Some vitamins are household names by now.
If I mention nutrients like vitamin D, C, or B12, not only have you likely heard of them, but you probably also know a little about why they’re good for you. You might already have them in your “medicine” cabinet.
However, I’m guessing you’ve never heard of vitamin H.
But if you’re dealing with dry eyes, hair loss, or dry skin, you’ll want to read more about this lesser-known nutrient that’s essential for healthy hair, skin, and eyes.
It’s called vitamin H, but it’s actually a member of the B vitamin family. And if you’ve heard of it, you likely know it by the name biotin.
You only need a small amount of biotin. But a deficiency can have BIG unwanted effects on your health.
Biotin assists enzymes in metabolizing glucose, fats, and protein. It promotes healthy hair, skin, and nails.
It’s involved in the proper development and functioning of the brain. And it’s also part of the protective myelin sheath that covers your nerves.
A biotin deficiency can lead to loss of appetite, depression, and fatigue. And it’s been linked to hair loss, cracks in the corner of your mouth, dry skin, and dry eyes.
Lack of biotin can also contribute to poor learning and memory. Plus, it could impact your nervous system and its functions.
Fortunately, you only need about 30 micrograms of biotin daily for your body to function properly. And you can get ALL of it from some of your favorite foods.
Here are the top 5 sources of biotin:
- Nuts and seeds
- Cooked sweet potato
Eating more of these delicious foods should provide you with plenty of this vital vitamin.
P.S. Researchers have identified a link between low levels of another B vitamin and dementia. CLICK HERE to discover what you need to know to slash your risk.
