Biotin is a water-soluble B vitamin, otherwise known as vitamin B7 or Vitamin H. Because humans and other mammals cannot synthesise biotin, it must be derived from dietary sources and through endogenous synthesis by normal healthy intestinal flora. Dietary sources include liver, eggs, nuts, sardines, legumes, whole grains, bananas and soya beans.
Generally a lack of biotin is rare, however, certain conditions may increase biotin requirements, including, genetic disorder of biotin deficiency, surgical removal of the stomach/gastric bypass, cigarette smoking and excessive alcohol consumption.
Introducing SOLGAR BIOTIN 5000µg Vegetable Capsules:
Biotin has important metabolic functions as it works as a co-factor in enabling a variety of enzymes to work efficiently – thereby helping regulate the health and integrity of the skin, intestinal tract (and other mucous membranes), and contributes to normal functioning of the nervous system, including normal psychological well-being.
Biotin, contributes to normal macronutrient metabolism as well as energy-yielding metabolism, helping to transform fat, protein and carbohydrates in food to glucose, needed by the body in order to decrease insulin resistance whilst improving glucose tolerance.
Taking biotin orally is being tested for a number of cosmetic uses and it is reputed for its ability to promote increase healthy growth and strength in both hair and nails. Many nutritionists agree that biotin is one of the important vitamins for supporting healthy hair growth. A deficiency of biotin may cause hair to become frail and unhealthy, and hair breakage, which may result in hair loss. In addition, researchers have found that biotin supplementation may be supportive for digestive health issues such as candidiasis (yeast overgrowth), and certain skin conditions.
