D-BIOTIN 10 000 µg + C - VEGAN

Biotin acts as a coenzyme in the body needed for the metabolism of fatty acids, amino acids and glucose. This means that when we eat foods that contain fat, protein and carbohydrates, biotin - also called vitamin B7 - must be present to convert and use these nutrients. Our bodies then get the energy they need to perform physical activities, for proper psychological function and for growth.

Biotin contributes to a young and attractive appearance as this vitamin plays an important role in maintaining healthy hair, nails and skin. 

 

BIOTIN - SKIN & HAIR

BIOTIN IS THE BEAUTY VITAMIN FOR HAIR, SKIN AND NAILS

Biotin acts as a coenzyme in the body needed for the metabolism of fatty acids, amino acids and glucose. This means that when we eat foods that contain fat, protein and carbohydrates, biotin - also called vitamin B7 - must be present to convert and use these nutrients. Our bodies then get the energy they need to perform physical activities, for proper psychological function and for growth.

Biotin contributes to a young and attractive appearance as this vitamin plays an important role in maintaining healthy hair, nails and skin. In fact, biotin is sometimes nicknamed vitamin H, which is derived from the German words "Haar och Haut", which means "hair and skin."

But does biotin work to increase hair growth? Thinner hair is a symptom that is linked to biotin deficiency. Vitamin B7/biotin is often found in the list of ingredients on beauty products for hair and skin, even if it is not absorbed very well through the skin. Some research suggests that you get the most out of the benefits of biotin if the vitamin is ingested through food or through supplements.

So what are the best sources to get biotin through the diet? Foods such as meat, eggs, avocados, cauliflower, berries, fish, legumes and mushrooms.

 

WHAT IS BIOTIN?

Biotin, or vitamin B7, is a water-soluble vitamin that is part of the vitamin B complex - a group of important nutrients needed for healthy metabolic, nerve and digestive and cardiovascular functions.

Vitamin B7/biotin deficiency is rare in countries where people generally consume enough calories and a varied diet.

 

PRODUCTS CONTAINING BIOTIN

Products that contain biotin are a trend among consumers who want longer, healthier hair and nails. If you want to take a biotin supplement for this purpose or for other health improvements, you have several options, for example: supplements with biotin, supplements that contain biotin together with other B vitamins, skin care serums and lotions that contain biotin and hair care products that contain biotin.

Vitamin B7/biotin is available as part of dietary supplements with vitamin B complex, which includes a complete spectrum of all B vitamins:

  • Vitamin B1 - thiamine
  • Vitamin B2 - riboflavin
  • Vitamin B3 - niacin
  • Vitamin B5 - pantothenic acid
  • Vitamin B6 - pyridoxine
  • Vitamin B7 - biotin
  • Vitamin B9 - folic acid
  • Vitamin B12 - cobalamin

 

Together, the B-vitamin complex helps activity in bodily metabolism, brain functions, nerve signaling and many other important daily functions. The B-vitamins also work with each other, so taking a vitamin B complex is always the best way to ensure you get the best possible results.

 

DOES BIOTIN HELP PROMOTE HAIR GROWTH?

There is some evidence to suggest that biotin may be helpful, although research focused on biotin for hair health and skin renewal is limited and somewhat deficient. We know that biotin helps build the proteins needed to maintain youthful hair and skin, including the protein keratin.

 

SOME OF THE BENEFITS OF BIOTIN

Biotin/vitamin B7 supports a healthy metabolism

Biotin regulates gene expression that is critical for performing the functions of metabolism. Vitamin B7, along with other B vitamins, is needed to convert the food you eat into useful energy that supports a healthy metabolism. Vitamin B7 does this in several ways:

  • Biotin converts glucose from carbohydrates and sugar sources into useful "fuel" which is the energy source that the body prefers.
  • The vitamin helps the body use amino acids from proteins to perform several bodily functions.
  • Biotin activates fatty acids from fatty foods such as oils or animal fats.
  • Without enough vitamin B7 in the body, symptoms such as a slow metabolism can manifest themselves as low energy levels, fatigue, weight gain, digestive problems, possible development of diabetes, appetite changes, bad mood and more.
  • Only when the body can use nutrients from food for energy will normal, healthy metabolic activity take place. Vitamin B7 also improves the metabolism and use of glucose, which provides some protection against insulin resistance, type 2 diabetes.

 

BIOTIN CAN IMPROVE GLUCOSE INTOLERANCE AND HELP BALANCE BLOOD SUGAR

Vitamin B7/biotin, especially when combined with chromium, has been shown to help lower blood sugar in people with diabetes. Biotin benefits blood sugar levels because it facilitates the activity of insulin, which is the crucial hormone required to return blood sugar to a balanced state. Better insulin response helps reduce large imbalances in blood sugar levels, which can lead to type 2 diabetes, weight gain and various forms of metabolic syndrome.

Biotin reduces the expression of enzymes that stimulate glucose production in the liver, therefore less sugar is released into the bloodstream. For this reason, vitamin B7 deficiency has been linked to impaired glucose tolerance and reduced utilization of glucose, which are risk factors for diabetes. Vitamin B7 can also help reduce the symptoms of existing cases of diabetes, including nerve pain.

 

BIOTIN PROMOTES AND MAINTAINS HEALTHY HAIR, SKIN AND NAILS

Vitamin B7 is needed for healthy skin, hair and nails, so when someone experiences a vitamin B7 deficiency, the symptoms can appear as thin and brittle hair, or as dry and irritated skin. Eating foods rich in biotin can help turn around. vitamin deficiency and support the production of proteins and enzymes needed for hair growth.

Biotin has been shown to help reduce hair loss in adults and improve the protein synthesis and "infrastructure" of the protein keratin, which is a protein that makes up hair, skin and nails. Research also shows that a lack of other nutrients, such as zinc, selenium and iron, can also cause thinner hair, not to mention that many health conditions such as hormonal imbalance / endocrine disorders can be another cause.

Something important to note is that although biotin is included in many cosmetic face creams, hair products and other beauty products, it seems to be much more effective when ingested and acts from the inside out, rather than being applied topically and acting from the outside in.

 

BIOTIN IS NEEDED TO BUILD AND REPAIR TISSUES AND MUSCLES

The benefits of biotin include helping the growth and maintenance of body tissues, including helping to repair and build muscle. When tissue or muscle is broken down, vitamin B7 helps to rebuild the strength of muscles and tissues that lead to growth.

B vitamins also help reduce inflammation that can lead to muscle or joint pain, pain or movement problems.

 

SOME UNDERLYING CAUSES OF BIOTIN DEFICIENCY

  • Pregnancy
  • Long-term use of certain medications, eg long-term use of antibiotics
  • A high alcohol intake
  • A high consumption of raw egg whites
  • Smoking
  • Problems with the absorption of nutrients in the intestines, or severe digestive disorders such as Crohn's disease, celiac disease or leaky gut syndrome.

 

FOODS RICH IN BIOTIN (VITAMIN B7)

There are actually eight different forms of biotin, but only one occurs naturally - the type found in foods. This type is called "D-biotin" and is believed to be the only type that has full vitamin capacity. This is another example of why it is always best to get your vitamins and minerals from foods whenever possible, as they contain nutrients just as nature has made them so that the body can use them optimally.

In 2004, when researchers examined 51 different foods to identify the amount of biotin available, they found a wide range of varying biotin levels in each food. For these reasons, authorities do not list the amount of biotin found in common foods. However, according to studies, the foods below were some of the highest tested on the amount of biotin, although the amount of biotin for each food still varies quite a bit.

 

FOODS RICH IN BIOTIN

  • Liver
  • Egg
  • Salmon
  • Cheese
  • Avocado
  • Raspberry
  • Cauliflower
  • Whole grain bread

 

In addition, other berries, mushrooms and other fish species are considered good sources of biotin.

Interestingly, vitamin B7 is only found in the egg yolk and is not found in the egg white at all. Some reports have shown that those who remove the yolk not only miss B vitamins when they only eat the egg white, but that the egg white actually has the ability to deplete the effects of the B vitamins - possibly even creating a vitamin B7 deficiency, if eaten raw.
