Allergy Research Group Biotin 5000 mcg 60 vegetarian capsules
Although biotin—also known as vitamin B-7 or vitamin H—is important‚ most foods only contain small amounts of it. If your diet is lacking in eggs and other rich sources of B-complex vitamins like organ meat and nuts‚ you may need to supplement with biotin‚ a water-soluble vitamin that contains sulfur. Biotin helps your body break down protein and fat for effective absorption. It also aids in converting sugar from carbohydrates into energy. Sufficient biotin levels also keep your hair and nails strong and healthy.
If you’re deficient in biotin‚ you may develop symptoms of malnutrition; these include thinning hair‚ loss of hair color‚ rashes‚ depression‚ arm or leg tingling‚ hallucinations‚ dry skin‚ and difficulty concentrating. Extra biotin in your diet may also help control diabetes; since the enzyme helps your body manage blood sugar more efficiently. Pregnant women typically require extra biotin in the form of dietary changes or supplements‚ as well. Individuals with illnesses that negatively affect the appetite—or who are being nourished through feeding tubes—frequently take a biotin supplement in order to regain energy and revitalize metabolism. Smokers may also suffer from mild deficiencies of the vitamin.
Allergy Research Group’s Biotin 5000 capsules contain 5000 mg of biotin that is of the highest available purity‚ free of preservatives or additives.
