Quali®-B (Vitamin B7)

Your body needs vitamin B7 (biotin) to help convert certain nutrients into energy. It also plays an important role in the health of your hair and skin.

Vitamin B7 Overview

Due to its beneficial effects on hair and skin, biotin is often referred to as the “beauty vitamin.” A sufficient intake of biotin can also help convert food into glucose, produce fatty acids and amino acids (the building blocks of protein and lipids, respectively) and activates protein/amino acid metabolism within the hair roots.
