Biotin is part of the large family of B vitamins. It's mainly involved in producing energy‚ but also assists in breaking down fats and proteins‚ as well as ensuring that your nervous system functions properly. Since it’s additionally believed to provide your nails and hair with added strength and a better appearance‚ biotin is often used as an ingredient in cosmetic products.
The bacteria that live inside of your intestines can manufacture biotin. Biotin can also be obtained through your diet; brewer's yeast‚ nuts‚ cooked eggs‚ sardines‚ soybeans‚ whole grains‚ mushrooms‚ cauliflower‚ and bananas all contain an abundance of this vitamin. Any biotin that’s eaten but not used in a short period of time is removed through your waste‚ because it’s a water-soluble vitamin you can’t store for future use. Due to its wide availability‚ biotin deficiency is relatively rare. Potential signs of low biotin levels include hair loss‚ dry eyes‚ dry skin‚ tiredness‚ a bad mood‚ and a loss of appetite.
If you’ve been fed through a tube for a long period of time‚ are taking a long-term course of antibiotics or anti-seizure medications‚ or have a health condition that makes it difficult for you to use the nutrients provided by your diet‚ you may need a supplement rich in biotin. Integrative Therapeutics’ Biotin Forte without Zinc 5 mg complements your diet with two essential vitamins: biotin‚ which strengthens your nails and hair‚ and ensures that you’re able to make the most of other nutrients; and riboflavin‚ which protects your cells from damage‚ supports energy production‚ and maintains your internal vitamin stores. These tablets don’t contain zinc‚ because the standard Western diet typically provides sufficient amounts of the mineral; this lessens its chance of interacting with other supplements.
It’s particularly important to avoid raw egg whites when you’re low on biotin because they contain avidin‚ a protein that’s known to prevent biotin absorption.
A 60-tablet container of Biotin Forte without Zinc 5 mg by Integrative Therapeutics should last for about two months.
