by andMe Bioactive Beverage 01 Oct 2021

[article]

Biotin is a water-soluble vitamin which comes under vitamin-B family and it’s named as B7.

 “BIOTIN” word is derived from Greek word “BIOTOS”, which means life giving. It is Sulphur containing vitamin complex which mainly participates in carboxylation reaction.

What is carboxylation reaction?

A chemical reaction in which a carboxylic acid group is formed by treating substrate with carbon dioxide. Pyruvate carboxylase enzyme is mainly involved this reaction along with ATP and biotin.

Basically, biotin convert carbohydrates, fats, proteins present in the food you take to energy.

What are vitamins?

Vitamins are the essential ingredient needed by the body to carry out various metabolic functions. They are required in very less quantity by body. Few vitamins are atypical, meaning synthesized by body itself; some are formed by flora of gut and some has to be taken in diet.

How Biotin is formed?

It is formed by flora of gut; all good microorganisms in the gastrointestinal tract. If you are taking a lot of antibiotics because of any chronic disease, then the gut florae get suppressed resulting in declining of B7 levels in body.

This may cause crisis in the levels and may be seen as certain deficiencies in the body like split ended hairs or thinning of hair and hair loss, loss of appetite and nausea, skin inflammation accompanying red rashes around eyes, nose, mouth.

These symptoms appear shows decline in the B7 level and the biggest problem of this vitamin is – “It is not being stored inside the body”, therefore consumption of balanced diet enriched with vitamins is often recommended.

There are many factors responsible for hair loss or poor hair texture.

  • The main factor is genetic disorder, which is unavoidable and has to appear sooner or later.
  • Auto immune disorders like thyroid dysfunction, hormonal imbalance, improper diet and the very common factor is stress.
  • Hair loss can also be a side effect of medicines you are taking for any sickness that you have

What is Lorem Ipsum? Lorem Ipsum is simply dummy text of the printing and typesetting industry. Lorem Ipsum has been the industry's standard dummy text ever since the 1500s, when an unknown printer took a galley of type and scrambled it to make a type specimen book. It has survived not only five centuries, but also the leap into electronic typesetting, remaining essentially unchanged. It was popularised in the 1960s with the release of Letraset sheets containing Lorem Ipsum passages, and more recently with desktop publishing software like Aldus PageMaker including versions of Lorem Ipsum. Why do we use it? It is a long established fact that a reader will be distracted by the readable content of a page when looking at its layout. The point of using Lorem Ipsum is that it has a more-or-less normal distribution of letters, as opposed to using 'Content here, content here', making it look like readable English. Many desktop publishing packages and web page editors now use Lorem Ipsum as their default model text, and a search for 'lorem ipsum' will uncover many web sites still in their infancy. Various versions have evolved over the years, sometimes by accident, sometimes on purpose (injected humour and the like).
