Overview
Biotin is a member of the B-complex family although it is not actually a vitamin; it is a coenzyme that works with vitamins. Biotin gets its name from the Greek word bios, which means "life" and was initially isolated in 1936. Biotin is necessary for the metabolism of fats, carbohydrates, and protein. As a coenzyme, it is involved in a number of processes and is utilized by every cell in the body. Biotin is involved in energy metabolism, and plays a role in enabling the body to use glucose. It is essential for cell growth and replication and also helps form and maintain chemical structures in keratin (the major protein found in hair and nails). Biotin is water-soluble, so any excess will be eliminated in the urine. Our Biotin is available in 500 mcg vegetarian capsules.
