Biotin, which is also known as Vitamin H, B7 and B8, is part of the B-complex of vitamins that help your body convert the food you eat into energy for your body to use. In other words, it helps with your body’s metabolism. These B-complex vitamins help with keeping your skin, hair, eyes, liver and your nervous system healthy. Biotin is also found in a variety of foods such as whole grain cereal or bread, eggs, dairy products, peanuts, salmon and chicken.
