Biotin is also necessary for the metabolism of carbohydrates, fats, and amino acids (the building blocks of protein). It plays an important role in the Krebs Cycle (the process in which energy is released from food). Biotin assists various metabolic chemical exchanges, and aids in the transfer of carbon dioxide. Biotin may also be helpful for maintaining healthy blood sugar levels that are already within the normal range. Health Functions:

As a dietary supplement, take 1 Vcap 1 to 2 times daily, preferably with meals. Consider taking this product in combination with B-Complex Vitamins. Caution:
Long-term anticonvulsant (anti-seizure) and antibiotic therapies may increase the need for biotin. Large doses of the nutrient pantothenic acid have the potential to compete with biotin for intestinal and cellular uptake due to their similar structures. Very high (pharmacologic) doses of lipoic acid have been found to decrease the activity of biotin-dependent carboxylases in rats, but such an effect has not been demonstrated in humans. Store in a cool, dry place, away from direct light. Keep out of reach of children. Disclaimer:
