NOW BIOTIN 5000MCG CAPSULES 60S
Biotin is a water-soluble vitamin necessary for normal growth and body function. Biotin functions as a key regulatory element in gluconeogenesis, fatty acid synthesis, and in the metabolism of some amino acids.Alongside its role in energy production, biotin enhances the synthesis of certain proteins. In addition, biotin promotes healthy immune system function and plays a critical role in skin health.Biotin is an important component of enzymes involved in metabolizing fats and carbohydrates, influencing cell growth, and affecting amino acids involved in protein synthesis.In addition, biotin is important for the health of your hair, skin and nails.
BENEFITS OF BIOTIN
- ?Macronutrient metabolism
Biotin is important for energy production. For example, several enzymes need it to function properly.
These enzymes are involved in carbohydrates, fat and protein metabolism. They initiate critical steps in the metabolic processes of these nutrients.
Biotin plays a role in:
- Gluconeogenesis: This metabolic pathway enables glucose production from sources other than carbohydrates, such as amino acids. Biotin-containing enzymes help initiate this process.
- Fatty acid synthesis: Biotin assists enzymes that activate reactions important for the production of fatty acids.
- The breakdown of amino acids: Biotin-containing enzymes are involved in the metabolism of several important amino acids, including leucine.
- Brittle nails
Brittle nails are weak and easily become chipped, split or cracked.Biotin may benefit brittle nails.
- Hair health
Biotin is often associated with increased hair growth and healthier, stronger hair.A a deficiency in biotin may lead to hair loss, which indicates that the vitamin is important for hair.
