Biotin‚ a water soluble B vitamin found in foods such as oatmeal and soy‚ assists in energy metabolism in cells. Biotin is essential for the metabolism of carbohydrates‚ proteins and fats. In addition‚ Biotin helps to support healthy skin‚ hair and nails.
Biotin is involved in the metabolism of both sugar and fat. In sugar metabolism‚ biotin helps move sugar from its initial stages of processing on to its conversion into usable chemical energy. For this reason muscle cramps and pains related to physical exertion‚ which may be the result of the body's inability to use sugar efficiently as fuel‚ may signal a biotin deficiency.
Synthesis of Fat (Fatty Acids)!
Many of the classic symptoms of biotin deficiency are skin-related problems and the reason may be biotin's role in fat synthesis. Biotin is required for function of an enzyme in the body called acetyl Co-A carboxylase. This enzyme puts together the building blocks for the production of fat in the body. Fat production is critical for all cells in the body since the membranes of all cells must contain the correct fat components to function properly. Fat production is especially critical for skin cells as they die and are replaced very rapidly‚ and serve as a selective barrier to the outside environment. When cellular fat components cannot be made properly due to biotin deficiency‚ skin cells are among the first cells to develop problems.
Support of Nervous System Activity!
Because glucose and fat are used for energy within the nervous system‚ biotin also functions as a supportive vitamin in this area. Numerous nerve-related symptoms have been linked to biotin deficiency. These symptoms include seizures‚ lack of muscle coordination (ataxia)‚ and lack of good muscle tone (hypotonia).

The proof is in my hair
I started taking Biotin for my hair and can attest that it is growing in thicker now. Even the bald spot at the top of my head is much less noticeable after taking this for about 4 months.
√ I would recommend this item to a friend.
