Biotin is essential to many critical bodily functions. During pregnancy, biotin deficiency is common affecting 33% – 50% of expectant women due to acceleration of degradation which occurs mostly during late pregnancy.
Evidence suggests that pregnant women require biotin intake that is 2−3 times larger than the recommended pre-pregnancy. This highlights the importance of biotin supplementation during pregnancy and why Her.9 includes a generous daily dose.
Additionally, biotin is often known as the ‘beauty vitamin’, as it offers advanced support for the skin and hair. Since it is common for the health and appearance of the skin and hair to change during pregnancy, biotin is a key nutrient for maintaining a healthy glow.
