The Benefits of Biotin(B7)
Biotin (B7 vitamin) is a dietary component that is important for the metabolism of carbohydrates, fats, and amino acids. Biotin is a water-soluble B vitamin found naturally in some foods and used as a dietary supplement. It is found primarily in liver, kidney, and muscle. Biotin functions as an essential cofactor for five carboxylases that catalyze steps in fatty acid, glucose, and amino acid metabolism. Mammals must consume biotin to replenish stores. Sources of biotin include organ meats, eggs, fish, seeds, and nuts. As a dietary supplement, biotin has been promoted to be useful in the treatment of hair and nail problems, diabetes, peripheral neuropathy, candida infections, and high cholesterol. It has also been used in pregnancy, hemodialysis, and peritoneal dialysis, as biotin deficiency is more likely in these situations.
Biotin is considered quite essential for the healthy growth of the entire body. It is important to supply your body with the right amount of biotin through your diet and supplements. Oral supplements might not be optimal as nutritional absorption from oral pills is small and further affected by a number of factors – such as age, lifestyle, underlying health problems.
We recommend regular supplementation of biotin with intravenous IV therapy that delivers nutrients right into your bloodstream for maximum absorption and immediate bioavailability.
