Do you also think your hair is thinning, nails are getting brittle, and you feel fatigued and tired too? Well, a significant reason for this could be the lack of vitamin B7. This vitamin, also known as Biotin, is essential for the body's metabolism and functioning. It is a necessary component made of a number of enzymes that are responsible for several critical metabolic pathways in the human body. Even though the deficiency of this vitamin is rare, it can affect you in many ways. Recently, celebrity nutritionist Nmami Agarwal shed light on how this vitamin deficiency can affect your body.
In a video Nmami shared on Instagram, she begins by first saying that Biotin is required to convert food into energy. Although the deficiency of this vitamin is very rare, common symptoms include hair thinning, splitting of hair, brittle nails, tiredness, fatigue, muscle pain, and paining sensation in hands and feet.
Further, she tells what all foods can help with overcoming this deficiency. This list includes eggs, fish, meat, cauliflower, dairy, nuts, sweet potato, and yeast! Check out her full post here:
