Details

Description

Biotin (Vitamin H) is an essential water-soluble B vitamin. The name biotin is taken from the Greek word bios meaning "life". Without biotin, certain enzymes do not work properly and various complications can occur involving the skin, intestinal tract, and nervous system. Metabolic problems including very low blood sugars between meals, high blood ammonia, or acidic blood (acidosis) can occur.

Why support with Biotin?

Biotin is an essential coenzyme for a variety of carboxylation reactions, and is involved in the metabolism of fats, sugars and amino acids. Biotin is crucial for the utilisation of glucose for energy, the breakdown and utilisation of fatty acids in energy production, and the removal of the amine group in amino acid metabolism, thereby assisting amino acid synthesis into protein and the formation of DNA and RNA. As early as 1940, biotin was being researched for its effectiveness in promoting healthy hair and nails.

Supportive Recommendations

Avoid obvious sources of pollution, toxins and fumes. Air your house. Consume whole, fresh foods, and minimise all forms of refined sugar and carbohydrates and processed foods. Drink adequate quantities of filtered water.

Cautions & Contraindications

High-doses of pantothenic acid can lead to malabsorption of biotin in the gut and can lower levels of biotin in the body. Caution is advised.

Biotin may increase the effects of lipid-lowering herbs or supplements.

Eating raw egg whites on a regular basis increases the risk of biotin deficiency.

Keep in a cool, dry place, tightly capped and stored out of reach of children.
