Biotin Supplements

Biotin is present in our skin, hair, nerves and bone marrow. Biotin is a Vitamin B that is needed for the formation of fatty acids and glucose, which are essential for the production of energy in our body. Biotin gets its name from the Greek word “bios,” which means “life.”

Biotin is found naturally in foods that include cauliflower, carrots, mushrooms, legumes, bananas, brewer’s yeast, nutritional yeast, liver, salmon, egg yolks and sardines.

Biotin also aids in the body’s production of enzymes and with the proper use of other nutrients and vitamins. A healthy nervous system depends on sufficient levels of vitamin B. Biotin is beneficial for the maintenance of healthy skin, the hair and nails. Biotin deficiency may lead to skin rash, hair loss, high cholesterol, heart problems, muscle pain, depression and loss of appetite. Using prescription antibiotics for a long period of time may interfere with biotin production in the digestive system. People with a history of seizures shouldn’t use biotin unless under the supervision of a doctor.

Biotin supplements are beneficial for those who are deficient in Vitamin B as a result of illness or the use of prescription drugs. Biotin supplements may provide more therapeutic benefits at a higher dosage than the amount of Biotin available from foods.

Biotin works very well as a helper vitamin along side other vitamins, herbal extracts and minerals. Therefore, supplements that include a great variety of other nutrients may be more beneficial than a supplement that only contains biotin.

DrugNaturalâ„¢ offers a variety of biotin supplements that contain the water soluble B vitamin.
