Doctors Best Biotin 5,000mcg is a high potency biotin formula that supports healthy hair, skin and nails.
Belonging to the B-Vitamin family (B7), biotin is also called ‘Vitamin H’, named from the German words "Haar (hair) and Haut (skin). A biotin deficiency can lead to many skin issues including redness, itchy skin, acne and cradle cap (in babies).
