Biotin

Introduction to Biotin

Biotin, a water-soluble B vitamin, acts as a coenzyme in the metabolism of protein, fats, and carbohydrates.

Sources of Biotin

Good dietary sources of biotin include organ meats, oatmeal, egg yolk, soy, mushrooms, bananas, peanuts, and brewer&rsquos yeast. Bacteria in the intestine also produce significant amounts of biotin, but evidence is conflicting as to whether biotin produced by intestinal bacteria is present at a location or is in a form that permits significant absorption by the body.

Known Side Effect of Using Biotin

Excess intake of biotin is excreted in the urine no toxicity symptoms have been reported. Biotin works with some other B vitamins, such as folic acid, pantothenic acid vitamin B5, and vitamin B12. However, no solid evidence indicates that people supplementing with biotin also need to take these other vitamins. Symptoms of pantothenic acid or zinc deficiency have been reported to be lessened with biotin, though people with these deficiencies should supplement with the nutrients in which they are deficient. Researchers have speculated that biotin and alpha lipoic acid may compete with each other for absorption or uptake into cells but little is known about the importance of these interactions in humans. There is one report of a 76-year-old woman who developed a life-threatening condition eosinophilic pleuropericardial effusion while taking 10 mg of biotin per day and 300 mg of pantothenic acid per day. However, it is not clear whether the vitamins caused the problem. Certain medicines may interact with biotin. Refer to drug interactions for a list of those medicines.

Supportive Formulas

Many years have been spent creating the Phytobiophysics formulas that are made from carefully researched combinations of essences from many flowers and plants. We believe that essences enable the body to heal by dealing with the underlying causal emotional trauma so encouraging the body’s own healing process.
