Biotin is a water soluble vitamin in the B family, sometimes referred to as Vitamin B7 or Vitamin H. As with all our vitamins, it’s essential for the everyday running of our health.
Particularly, biotin plays roles in the metabolism of our carbohydrates, proteins and fats, allowing for proper energy production and use. Important for immune function, it is required for white blood cell formation. Biotin is one of the select nutrients that crosses the blood brain barrier, so therefore plays a part in neurological roles like mood, emotions and memory. In its roles in pain and sensation, biotin makes our myelin sheath, the fatty protective insulator surrounding our nerves.
Biotin is naturally found in food in a protein-bound form, as well as produced by our intestinal bacteria. In general, a biotin deficiency is rare. But even a mild deficiency can have some big consequences. Symptoms can show as thinning hair, brittle fingernails and conjunctivitis of the eye. As skin cells require healthy fat metabolism to protect against damage and water loss, this can contribute to skin issues like facial rashes. Again with its role in fat metabolism, a biotin deficiency can contribute to cardiovascular health, diabetes and metabolic syndrome symptoms. Even a mild deficiency can contribute to symptoms of depression, hallucinations, tingling in the arms and legs and an overall lack of interest.
A person may be biotin-deficient if they have issues digesting and absorbing (particularly proteins as biotin is bound to a protein in food sources), have dysbiosis of their gut bacteria, have a higher internal need for biotin or maintain a lifestyle habit that accelerates the breakdown of biotin in the body. Supplementing with Organika’s Biotin might be just the trick to help you overcome these hurdles.
