What is Biotin Pure?
This product is a pure biotin with no additives or fillers and is the potent and essential vitamin B7.
Biotin is necessary for physiological processes of all organisms and plants, yet can only be synthesized by bacteria, yeasts, molds, algae and some plants. It is of great importance for the biochemistry of the human organism because it is directly involved in carbon dioxide transfer and therefore essential to the metabolism of carbohydrate and fat.
Known as vitamin B7 as well as vitamin H, biotin works as a part of the B vitamin complex to break down and utilize food for energy.
Biotin helps in the synthesis of fatty acids, amino acids and glucose. Biotin is also utilized to manufacture intracellular carboxylase enzymes and is needed for normal growth and the health of skin and hair. Biotin helps maintain healthy bone marrow, blood cells and nerve tissue. Biotin is found in low levels in the brain, liver and muscle tissue. The body also synthesizes small amounts of biotin in the intestines via bacteria, which may be absorbed and contribute to daily needs.
Among others, biotin activates acetylCoA carboxylase, a potentially key-enzyme in myelin synthesis.
A properly balanced diet can provide sufficient amounts of biotin. Typically found in liver, egg yolk, cereals, legumes and nuts, biotin can be characterized as relatively stable in heat, light and oxygen. However, food-processing techniques such as high heat can destroy biotin. As a result, less-processed versions of fresh foods will yield more biotin and subsequent health benefits.
The primary role of biotin lies in its ability to metabolize fats, proteins and carbohydrates. Biotin works as a vital part of several enzymes (where it functions as a coenzyme) involved in energy metabolism and activates acetylCoA carboxylase, a potentially key-enzyme in myelin synthesis. Aside from helping in synthesis processes, biotin also helps the body utilize blood sugar (glucose) for its energy needs.
Long-term antibiotic use may interfere with biotin production in the intestine and increase the risk of deficiency symptoms. Long-term use of anti-seizure medications may also lead to biotin deficiency.
