Living with a medical condition that requires extra biotin? Biotin 5 by Seeking Health offers a potent dose of biotin for those who cannot obtain adequate levels from their diet. Biotin is an essential water soluble B complex vitamin that plays a key role in many functions throughout the body. Some medical conditions and other factors, such as cigarette smoke1, can deplete your body’s supply of biotin.
Biotin 5 by Seeking Health may be beneficial in cases of:
- Bariatric surgery
- Malabsorption Syndromes
High potency doses of biotin have been reported to favorably influence glucose metabolism in a variety of ways. Studies show that biotin supports glucose tolerance and insulin sensitivity and may also induce enzymes that inhibit release of glucose by the liver into the bloodstream. Added benefits of biotin on cholesterol and triglyceride metabolism have also been reported in some studies.
The physiological roles of Biotin include:
- Protein and Carbohydrate metabolism
- Synthesis of hormones, fatty acids and cholesterol
- DNA replication
- Nervous system function
- Healthy skin and hair growth
Beneficial probiotic bacteria in the gastrointestinal tract can synthesize biotin, but this amount is not sufficient to achieve adequate levels. Biotin must be obtained from the diet or from dietary supplements. Biotin deficiency symptoms include seizures, hypotonia, ataxia, dermatitis, hair loss, and biotin deficiency may also result in fetal malformations.
Biotin 5 by Seeking Health can be used whenever a need for supplemental biotin exists. Biotin has no known toxicity and large amounts can be safely taken as any excess is readily excreted in the urine. Biotin 5 is formulated to be free from flow agents, preservatives, colors, flavors, or allergens such as milk/casein, eggs, fish, shellfish, tree nuts, peanuts, wheat/gluten, corn, and soybeans.
