Vitamin B7 supplement: Biotin, not just for hair and skin.

by andMe Bioactive Beverage 01 Nov 2021

[article]

Biotin is a water-soluble vitamin also known as Vitamin H and B7, that helps the body metabolize fats, carbohydrates and protein. Being a water-soluble vitamin, it is not stored in the body so daily intake is essential.

Most biotin-rich foods include liver, yeast, egg yolk, whole wheat bread, avocado, salmon, cheese, bananas and nuts. Many People who are healthy receive adequate amounts of biotin through their diets. Pregnant and lactating women, though, may need an upsurge in biotin due to their bodies breaking it down at a much quicker rate.

Biotin not only improve the strength and resilience of fingernails and enhance hair and skin health but it also helps in improving many bodily functions.

1. Maintaining a healthy pregnancy

Slight biotin deficiency is often noticed during pregnancy. It can lead to irregular development in the fetus. Folic acid supplementation is suggested both the year before and during pregnancy. It is sensible to obtain a multivitamin that provides at least 30 mcg of biotin on per day basis, in addition to folic acid, to reduce the risk of deficiency.

2. Lowering blood glucose

Several studies have showed biotin’s ability to lower blood glucose in people with type 1 and type 2 diabetes and the results have been promising.

Biotin was shown to arouse the secretion of insulin from the pancreas and then to lower blood glucose.

3. Controlling neuropathy

Biotin also help decrease nerve damage in people who have diabetes or who are undertaking dialysis for kidney disease. In 1990, scientists found that three patients who took a high dose of biotin for 1 to 2 years saw an improvement in symptoms.

Biotin is necessary for the activity of pyruvate carboxylase. Deprived of this, high levels of pyruvate and aspartate may arise, and this can badly affect the nerves.

4. Treating multiple sclerosis

Studies have proposed that high-dose biotin therapy help improve symptoms in people with multiple sclerosis (MS), an autoimmune disease that affects the nervous system, leading to muscle weakness and a range of other problems.

To meet your daily Biotin requirement, we’ll suggest you to try andMe’s Biotin Powder. It has ingredients such as Omega 3, Hair Vitamins, DHT blocker, 7 unique herbal extracts and Amino Acids that act as a building block for the hair.

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).
