1. what do zinc and biotin do in the body?

The human organism needs sufficient vitamins, minerals and trace elements for the proper functioning of the metabolism. This is very easy to achieve through a healthy and balanced diet. In addition, these can also be supplemented in the form of food supplements. For some vitamins and trace elements a combination is worthwhile. A combination of zinc and biotin can be very helpful for hair, skin and nails. Both vital substances are essential for wound healing and cell renewal. Biotin promotes hair growth, provides shine in the hair and protects against hair loss. Zinc ensures that the hair is firmly anchored.

    2. the daily requirement of zinc and biotin

    Men should take in about 10 milligrams of zinc daily. Women, on the other hand, need only 7 milligrams of the trace element. Factors such as age, weight and size should always be taken into account. Furthermore, aspects such as diet and lifestyle should also be taken into account. The daily requirement of zinc can normally be well covered with a balanced and healthy diet. In the case of a zinc deficiency, the daily requirement of zinc can be well covered with the help of zinc as a food supplement.

    The German Nutrition Society (DGE) recommends a daily intake of approx. 30-60 µg of biotin for adults. The daily intake of biotin for an adult corresponds to about 100 g of peanuts. For children, the value is between 15-30 µg. In certain life situations, such as pregnancy, more biotin is required.

    What foods contain large amounts of zinc and biotin?

    Biotin, also called vitamin B7, is present in many foods. Animal foods contain particularly large amounts of biotin. These include offal, such as liver. Important sources of biotin also include cereal products, dairy products, tomatoes, carrots, and soybeans.

    Zinc from animal foods is generally more usable than zinc from plant products. Oysters, wheat germ, liver, poppy seeds and edamame contain the most zinc. Zinc should be absorbed daily by the body.

    4. vitamins and trace elements in the form of food supplements

    If you want to increase a too low value with a dietary supplement, you should pay attention to the form of the active ingredient and its origin. Dietary supplements in capsule form are particularly suitable for increasing the value. They are very well tolerated and are utilized by the body to a high degree. Likewise, the preparation should not contain any chemical additives such as microcrystalline cellulose. If you buy a preparation from Germany, you can be sure that the product has also been produced safely and is of high quality.
