Biotin High Potency by Country Life

Country Life High Potency Biotin 5 mg. - 120 Vegetarian Capsules

Country LifeHigh PotencyBiotin is an essential water-soluble B vitamin. The name biotin is taken from the Greek word bios meaning "life." Without biotin, certain enzymes would not work properly and various complications would occur in part of the body including:

  • the skin
  • the intestinal tract
  • the nervous system.
Metabolic problems including very low blood sugars between meals, high blood ammonia, or acidic blood (acidosis) can also occur with a lack of biotin in your diet. Death is theoretically possible, although no clear cases have been reported. Recent studies suggest that biotin is also necessary for processes on the genetic level in cells (DNA replication and gene expression) as well as in carbon dioxide transfer and therefore essential to the metabolism of carbohydrate and fat.

In the metabolism of fats, proteins and carbohydrates, Biotin functions as a critical component of several enzymes (where it functions as a coenzyme) involved in energy metabolism (such as pyruvate carboxylase). Biotin helps in the synthesis of fatty acids, in energy metabolism, and in the synthesis of amino acids and glucose. Biotin is also involved in making glucose, some amino acids and in energy production. Vitamin H, another name for Biotin, plays a special role in enabling the body to use blood sugar (glucose), a major source of energy for the body. Biotin supplements may improve thin, splitting, or brittle toe and fingernails as well as hair health. Biotin has also been used to combat alopecia (partial or complete loss of hair) in both children and adults. Biotin is typically included in most multi-vitamin supplements. 

General Benefits of Biotin:
  • helps in the synthesis of fatty acids, in energy metabolism
  • promotes normal health of:
  • sweat glands
  • bone marrow
  • male gonads
  • blood cells
  • nerve tissue
  • skin
  • hair
