Why Should You Take Biotin?
Biotin also known as Vitamin H, is a water-soluble vitamin that is considered an ingredient in B complex. Biotin is essential for the metabolism of fats, carbohydrates, and amino acids. Biotin can be obtained from a variety of foods. It is also produced naturally in the body by intestinal bacteria.
Biotin is The Most Important Ingredient For Good Hair, Skin and Nails
Low biotin levels have been linked to many skin conditions. Signs of deficiency include dry skin, fungal infections, depression, generalized aches and pain, nausea and vomiting. Taking a biotin supplement has shown to prevent hair loss, premature graying, cradle cap, and brittle nails.
Low Biotin Levels are Extremely Common
Consumption of alcohol, refined foods, egg whites, and long-term antibiotic usage can deplete the biotin levels in the body. Egg whites are a problem because they contain a protein that inhibits absorption of biotin. This may be of importance to dieters who substitute for egg-white omelets in an attempt to reduce calorie intake. Epileptics requiring anticonvulsive medication may also have biotin deficiencies, as are alcoholics. Both groups would benefit from a biotin supplement.
The body requires regular daily intake of biotin. Excess amounts of biotin are harmless and excreted through urination. No toxicity or side effects have been reported.
- As a dietary supplement, adults take one (1) capsule daily, or as directed by a health care professional. Store in a cool, dry place and away from direct light.
