Biotin 5 by Seeking Health provides a potent 5 mg dose of biotin for those who have greater needs for this important B vitamin or those who cannot obtain adequate amounts from their diet. Biotin is an essential water soluble B vitamin that plays a key role in normal metabolism of protein, carbohydrates, fatty acids and cholesterol, synthesis of hormones, DNA replication, nervous system function, and healthy skin and hair growth. Biotin is needed as a cofactor in important carboxylase enzymes required for fatty acid synthesis and oxidation, the citric acid cycle and leucine catabolism. Because these enzymes are needed for healthy fetal development, the body’s biotin requirements increase during pregnancy. As part of a healthy diet and lifestyle, biotin is an important nutrient for supporting a healthy pregnancy.*
Beneficial probiotic bacteria in the gastrointestinal tract can synthesize biotin, but not in amounts sufficient to meet the body’s daily demand for this nutrient. Biotin must be obtained from the diet or from dietary supplements. Dietary sources of biotin include yeast, egg yolk, liver, salmon, and avocado.*
