Now Foods Biotin is a dietary supplement containing 5mg of biotin per capsule.

Biotin – also known as vitamin B7 or vitamin H, it is an essential component of biotin-dependent carboxylases and a cofactor in many enzymatic reactions. It is known mainly for its positive effect on the skin, hair and nails, and commonly used by women. It affects energy metabolism, the functioning of the nervous system and the condition of mucous membranes.

Improved skin and hair
For years, biotin has been the most popular substance used to improve the condition of the skin and its derivatives – hair and nails. Smooth, healthy skin and dense, shiny hair are considered the markers of beauty by many people. Thanks to that, biotin enjoys special popularity among women, who pay much more attention to their appearance than men.

Using this vitamin can help to improve the condition of nails when they are thin and too brittle, limit hair loss, and make the skin look more smooth.

Regulating the biochemistry of the organism
As a component of numerous carboxylases, biotin participates in the migration of carboxyl groups from the hydrogen carbonate anion to other organic compounds. Biotin-dependent carboxylases include pyruvic carboxylase, alpha and beta acetyl-CoA, and methylcrotonyl-CoA carboxylase.

The vitamin also takes part in the processes of gluconeogenesis, amino acid metabolism (e.g. isoleucine and valine), and in fatty acid synthesis.

Regeneration of mucous membranes
One of the controversial subjects in the world of dieticians is the leaky gut syndrome. In theory, it is a condition when the intestinal barrier lets too many substances through to the circulatory system, including those that should not permeate. The problem can be caused by the degeneration of the mucous membrane covering the surface of the intestines.

As it turns out, biotin has the ability to help with mucous membranes. A good condition of intestinal mucous membranes can translate into more efficient digestion, the absorption of a larger amount of nutrients, the alleviation of gastric problems, and even an improvement of the immune system.

Those properties of vitamin H also prove interesting for people who struggle with ulcers and gastric erosions, as supporting the mucous membranes found on the walls of the stomach can reduce some painful symptoms.

Influence on the nervous system and psychological functions
The improvement of energy metabolism caused by biotin can cause an increase in the availability of useful energy, thanks to which the organism is able to function more efficiently. The right supply of energy for cells often results in decreased tiredness and more energy to carry out everyday tasks.

Thanks to proper supply of biotin, you can enjoy a more efficient functioning of the nervous system with a reduced probability of homeostatic disturbances and the high quality of psychological functions maintained.

Health of the circulatory system
Biotin accompanied by vitamin K can affect prothrombin synthesis. It is a glycoprotein circulating in the blood plasma that is responsible for its clotting.

Vitamin B7 has been shown to participate in the regulation of the lipid profile as well. Biotin can be particularly beneficial for the reduction of free triglycerides and the vLDL cholesterol fraction, characterised by remarkably high reactivity.

The consequences of a biotin deficiency
The main symptoms of an insufficient amount of the component in the organism are, not surprisingly, visible on the skin. Possible symptoms are a rash, and dermatitis, as well as increased hair loss, and thin, brittle nails.

Other symptoms can be inflammations of the bowel, conjunctivitis and disorders of the lipid profile, especially elevated total cholesterol and glyceride levels.

Adults have also been noted to suffer from neurological symptoms of the deficiency, such as depression, drowsiness, and the tingling and numbness of legs and arms.

The deficiency of the vitamin occurs particularly in people who eat raw eggs because of avidin found in their whites, in those who consume alcohol excessively, use epilepsy drugs, and have distorted intestinal microbiome, as bacteria can produce some amounts of biotin.

Now Foods Biotin is recommended for people who suffer from problems with their skin and hair quality, as well as those who have a diagnosed biotin deficiency. It can also be helpful in regulating the lipid profile, regenerating mucous membranes, and supporting the nervous system.
