Vitamin B7 (Biotin, Vitamin H)

Vitamin H carries out CO2 transfer in many metabolic pathways, as a cofactor of the enzyme pyruvate carboxylase. It is essential for growth, synthesis of fatty acids, antibody synthesis, synthesis of digestive enzymes and B3 metabolism. Like all B group vitamins, vitamin H helps the body convert carbohydrates into energy, metabolise fats and proteins, and maintain skin, hair, eyes, and liver health. It also helps the nervous system to function properly.
Interpretation:Although rare, vitamin H deficiency causes fatigue, depression, nausea, muscle pain, hair loss and anaemia. It is also associated with scaling of the scalp, onset of diabetes and peripheral neuropathy, nerve damage in the feet, hands, legs, or arms. High levels have not been shown to cause any harm, but may cause false results in some laboratory tests, including measurements of hormones such as thyroid hormones.
