Biotin 500 mcg

What is Biotin Vitamin?

Good4Life Biotin is available in 500 mcg Vegetarian Capsules, available in quantitis of 60 in post-consumer recycled brown bottles.

Biotin is a member of the Vitamin B family although it is actually a coenzyme that works with vitamins.  Biotin gets its name from the Greek word bios, which means "life".

Biotin is necessary for the metabolism of fats, carbohydrates, and proteins. As a coenzyme, it is involved in a number of bodily processes and is utilized by every cell in the body.

Biotin is involved in energy production, and plays a role in enabling the body to use glucose. It is essential for cell growth and replication and also helps form and maintain chemical structures in keratin (the major protein found in hair and nails).  Biotin has been shown to be important in the treatment of brittle finger nails, acne, hair fragility and alopeca.  Biotin is sometimes recommended to sufferers of Candida albicans as a preventative measure.

Biotin is water-soluble, so any excess will be eliminated in the urine making it very safe to supplement.  Biotin deficiency can result in hair loss.
