According to the Mayo Clinic:
"Biotin is necessary for formation of fatty acids and glucose, which are used as fuels by the body. It is also important for the metabolism of amino acids and carbohydrates.A lack of biotin is rare. However, if it occurs it may lead to skin rash, loss of hair, high blood levels of cholesterol, and heart problems."

WHAT IS FOLIC ACID?
According to National Institutes of Health (NIH):
Folate is a water-soluble B vitamin that is naturally present in some foods, added to others, and available as a dietary supplement.
Folate functions in the synthesis of nucleic acids (DNA and RNA) and metabolism of amino acids. One of the most important folate-dependent reactions is metabolizing homocysteine. Without this metabolization homocysteine would rise and is associated with an increased risk of cardiovascular disease. Another folate-dependent reaction is required for proper cell division. An impairment of this reaction initiates a process that can lead to megaloblastic anemia, one of the hallmarks of folate deficiency.
About 85% of supplemental folic acid, when taken with food, is bioavailable. When consumed without food, nearly 100% of supplemental folic acid is bioavailable.
Isolated folate deficiency is uncommon; its symptoms include weakness, fatigue, difficulty concentrating, irritability, headache, heart palpitations, and shortness of breath.
Women with insufficient folate intakes are at increased risk of giving birth to infants with NTDs. Inadequate maternal folate status has also been associated with low infant birth weight, preterm delivery, and fetal growth retardation.Reference: NIH Folate Fact Sheet for Consumers https://ods.od.nih.gov/factsheets/folate-healthprofessional/
