What is biotin?

At TEA+, our teas are specifically formulated for function. We combine a blend of tea, natural ingredients, vitamins and minerals all in one tea bag- this means every time you have a TEA+, you’re one step closer to reaching a specific health goal.

Biotin is a B vitamin (B7). It helps the body produce fatty acids. Biotin can be found in a wide range of foods, but only in small amounts.

Biotin is great for a number of things (no really)- that's why we include it in our tea blends. Our teas are proven to give functional aid to specific areas of concern, and biotin is key to the body’s needs.

Biotin for energy

Biotin plays its part amongst a handful of other B vitamins which work to convert the food you eat into glucose - giving you energy.

This means biotin is great for combatting fatigue, giving you the resources to make the most of your diet.

Biotin for hair

If our bodies are not getting the right nutrients that they need to thrive, then this can start to show.

Biotin is not a miracle vitamin that will help you grow inches of luscious locks overnight. But with consistent biotin supplementation, it will strengthen and protect your hair. Biotin stimulates keratin production in hair (the thing that makes our hair strong). It can also increase the rate of follicle growth. 

In addition to great hair care and a healthy routine, biotin can be great for hair and will support you in your journey to Rapunzel worthy dos.

Biotin for skin

We’re not the only ones who advocate for biotin for the skin- numerous scientific studies have found biotin to be a contributing nutrient to healthy skin.

Biotin contributes to the maintenance of normal mucous membranes, which are responsible for lubricating bodily tissues, such as the skin’s subcutaneous tissue. The subcutaneous tissue is the deepest layer of your skin. This layer is the barrier between skin and your muscles and organs. The majority of your body fat is stored here, the subcutaneous tissue acts as a layer of insulation. Biotin protects this skin barrier from particulate matter and various pathogens by contributing to the maintenance of normal mucous membranes (it really is an all rounder, isn’t it?!)

Biotin in TEA+ Energy

Along with its energy boosting properties, biotin contributes to support the body’s metabolism, normal psychological function and contributes to the normal functioning of the nervous system.
