-Supports Amino Acid Metabolism*
-Healthy Immune Support*
How it Works:
Biotin is a water-soluble vitamin necessary for normal growth and body function.* Biotin is a key regulatory element in gluconeogenesis, fatty acid synthesis, and in the metabolism of some amino acids.* Alongside its role in energy production, Biotin has been shown to support healthy serum glucose levels that are already within the normal range.* In addition, Biotin supports healthy immune function and plays a critical role in skin health.*
As a dietary supplement, take 1 Vcap® 1 to 2 times daily, preferably with food or as directed by your healthcare practitioner.
Cautions / Interactions:
Long-term anticonvulsant (anti-seizure) and antibiotic therapies may increase the need for biotin. Large doses of the nutrient pantothenic acid have the potential to compete with biotin for intestinal and cellular uptake due to their similar structures. Very high (pharmacologic) doses of lipoic acid have been found to decrease the activity of biotin-dependent carboxylases in rats, but such an effect has not been demonstrated in humans.
