Biotin from basil leaves
GSE uses natural biotin from biological basil leaf powder for the product Biotin Compact. Basil (Ocimum basilicum), also known as royal herb, is a spice plant from the genus basil of the same name (Ocimum) in the family of labiates. In the Near East, basil was already cultivated around 1000 BC as a spice, medicinal and ornamental plant. The wonderfully fragrant spice plant is one of the most popular herbs in the kitchen. Biotin - also called vitamin B7, more rarely vitamin H - belongs to the water-soluble vitamins and is involved in numerous metabolic processes in the organism, such as the conversion of fatty acids, carbohydrates and proteins. It also contributes to the normal functioning of the energy metabolism, the nervous system and normal mental function. However, the "beauty vitamin" is known above all for its contribution to maintaining normal hair and skin. Especially rich in biotin are foods of animal origin such as egg yolk, liver, kidney or lean meat. But biotin is also found in soybeans, nuts or wheat germ, for example. As the body cannot produce biotin itself and it is not stored by the body, or only stored for a short time, it should be supplied regularly through food. If the supply of biotin via the normal diet is not sufficient, supplementation in the form of a high-quality dietary supplement may be useful.

The biotin for Biotin Compact is obtained from biological basil leaf powder. In addition to the naturally occurring vitamins and minerals, the biological basil leaf powder used also contains secondary plant substances that occur naturally in the plant.
