Description Instructions Ingredients
Biotin is one of the B family of vitamins that functions in the manufacture and utilization of fats and amino acids.  The functioning of the human body would be seriously impaired without this little discussed vitamin.  Biotin is not a hot topic of discussion because it is made by intestinal bacteria.  Vegetarian and vegan diets alter and improve the intestinal bacterial flora in such a way as to enhance the synthesis and absorption of Biotin.  Good vegetarian sources are soybeans, cauliflower, mushrooms, peanuts and whole wheat.  Egg whites contain a substance called avidin that binds Biotin and prevents its absorption.

The main function of Biotin in the human body is that of the formation of four carboxylase enzymes.  These enzymes add a CO2 group to another molecule to form a carboxyl group.  Biotin-dependent carboxylases are involved in the metabolism of sugar, fat and amino acids; no small job here!  More specifically, Biotin is involved in the utilization of glucose, the break-down and utilization of fatty acids in energy metabolism, the removal of an amine group in the metabolism of amino acids and cell growth and replication.  Why don’t we hear more about Biotin?

In infants, a deficiency of Biotin can first appear as “cradle cap” or seborrheic dermatitis of the scalp.  In adults, a Biotin deficiency is characterized by nausea, loss of appetite and/or dry, scaly skin (seborrheic dermatitis).  

Biotin is extremely safe, and there have been no reported side effects with Biotin supplementation.  Working synergistically with the other B-vitamins, CoQ10 and Carnitine, Biotin can be used for the promotion of strong hair and nails, the control of seborrheic dermatitis and it enhances insulin sensitivity in diabetics.  People taking antibiotics may demonstrate a decrease in Biotin levels due to destruction of Biotin producing intestinal bacteria.
