Biotin 8mg 60‘s is available by Pure Encapsulations.
is a water-soluble B vitamin that is an essential co-factor for a
number of metabolic carboxylation reactions. Biotin forms a covalent
bond to the following carboxylase enzymes: pyruvate carboxylase for
glucose metabolism, acetyl CoA carboxylase for fatty acid oxidation,
and propionyl-CoA carboxylase and â- methylcrotonyl-CoA carboxylase for
amino acid metabolism. A clinical study reported that high dose
administration of biotin helped promote healthy glucose metabolism. A
number of animal studies support this claim. Biotin may also act to
promote transcription and translation of glucokinase, an enzyme found
in the liver and pancreas that participates in the metabolism of
glucose to form glycogen. Studies have also indicated that biotin is
supportive of nervous system health and function. A clinical study
revealed that biotin promotes nerve cell health. In addition, a
double-blind study reported that biotin supplementation may promote
healthy lipid metabolism. Furthermore, clinical studies have indicated
that biotin may adjust the cellular arrangement of the nail bed,
helping to reinforce the keratin structure, promote strength and
thickness, and reduce splitting. Recent studies have expanded biotin‘s
metabolic role, claiming that the vitamin maintains healthy genetic
expression of the many enzymes for which it is a cofactor. One study
suggested that this gene modulation is supportive of healthy immune
system function, stating that biotin may be involved in the
transcription of some immune cells.
Promotes healthy glucose metabolism and nerve health; helps support healthy nails
Biotin provides potential support for healthy glucose metabolism, nerve function, and nail strength.
