Biotin, also known as Vitamin B7 is one of the essential vitamins involved in the significant process of metabolism, primarily related to the utilization and conversion of fats, carbohydrates, and proteins into energy. And therefore it plays a significant role in the process of metabolism and digestion.
Now because biotin deficiency or low biotin levels in the body can’t be identified by a clear laboratory test, but it is usually diagnosed by some symptoms and clinical signs including hair thinning accompanied by hair loss, red scaly rash around the eyes, mouth, and nose. Other symptoms include depression, tiredness, hallucinations, and tingling of arms and legs, etc.
Although its deficiency is rare and can be easily cured by eating biotin-rich foods and my motive here is not to scare you but to aware you that if you undergo or diagnose any of these symptoms or even in general, this “BIOTIN SMOOTHIE” can be a go-to recipe for you.

Because why not, after all, “PRECAUTION IS BETTER THAN CURE”!
