Vitamin B7, also referred to as Biotin, is necessary for metabolism and hormone production.
The Vitamin B7 Blood Test works by collecting a blood sample and measuring the levels of vitamin B7 within that sample. Your body does not produce B vitamins on its own. Biotin, and other B vitamins, are ingested through foods such as meat, fish, eggs, seeds, nuts, and certain vegetables (such as sweet potatoes, spinach, and broccoli), or through supplements.
