About Biotin

Biotin is a water-soluble B-complex vitamin, also known as vitamin B7. It is a necessary vitamin for cell growth, the production of fatty acids, and the metabolism of fats and amino acids. This article will discuss the benefits of biotin, as well as the symptoms of biotin deficiency. Biotin can help to reduce hair loss, and it also can help prevent and treat cradle cap in children. It also is beneficial for both insulin dependent and non-insulin dependent diabetics. It helps to control blood sugar levels as well as fasting blood glucose levels, and can help prevent neuropathy. It also has been known to help strengthen hair and fingernails. Biotin deficiency is very rare in most people because intestinal bacteria produces an excess amount of the body's daily requirement for biotin. For that reason, there is no prescribed recommended daily dosage of biotin intake. However, if a person does suffer from biotin deficiency, they can take biotin supplements, eat liver. Also, raw egg yolks contain a large amount of biotin, but raw egg whites will minimize the amount of biotin in the body. Pregnant women have a high risk of biotin deficiency which can cause congenital malformations such as cleft palate. Symptoms of biotin deficiency include hair loss, conjunctivitis (swelling or infection of the membrane that lines the eyelids), dermatitis in the form of a scaly red rash around the eyes, nose, mouth, and genital area. Biotin deficiency can also cause depression, lethargy, hallucination, and even numbness and tingling of the extremities.
