Biotin 8 mg - Biotin by Pure Encapsulations, is a water-soluable B vitamin essential for healthy skin, and nails. A recent clinical study also indicated that Biotin reportedly helped to promote healthy glucose metabolism. If you have questions on this or any of our products, please call us to speak with one of our vitamin specialists, we are happy to help.
 
Biotin is a water-soluble B vitamin that is an essential co-factor for a number of metabolic carboxylation reactions. Biotin forms a covalent bond to the following carboxylase enzymes: pyruvate carboxylase for glucose metabolism, acetyl CoA carboxylase for fatty acid oxidation, and propionyl-CoA carboxylase and β- methylcrotonyl-CoA carboxylase for amino acid metabolism. A clinical study reported that high dose administration of biotin helped promote healthy glucose metabolism.

What Is It? Biotin is a water-soluble B vitamin that is an essential co-factor for a number of metabolic carboxylation reactions, including carbohydrate, fat and protein metabolism. Biotin provides potential support for healthy glucose metabolism, nerve function, and nail strength.*

Uses For Biotin

Nutrient Metabolism: Biotin forms a covalent bond to the following carboxylase enzymes: pyruvate carboxylase for glucose metabolism, acetyl CoA carboxylase for fatty acid oxidation, and propionyl-CoA carboxylase and b-methylcrotonyl-CoA carboxylase for amino acid metabolism. One double-blind study reported that biotin supplementation may promote healthy lipid metabolism. Another clinical study reported that high dose administration of biotin helped promote healthy glucose metabolism. A number of animal studies support this claim. Biotin may also act to promote transcription and translation of glucokinase, an enzyme found in the liver and pancreas that participates in the metabolism of glucose to form glycogen. Recent studies have expanded biotin's metabolic role, claiming that the vitamin maintains healthy genetic expression of the many enzymes for which it is a cofactor. One study suggested that this gene modulation is supportive of healthy immune system function, stating that biotin may be involved in the transcription of some immune cells.*

Nerve Function: Optimal levels of biotin are supportive of nervous system health and function. A clinical study indicates that biotin promotes nerve cell health.*

Nail Health: Clinical studies indicate that biotin may adjust the cellular arrangement of the nail bed, helping to reinforce the keratin structure, promote strength and thickness, and reduce splitting.*

What Is The Source?

Biotin is synthetic. Hypo-allergenic plant fiber is derived from pine cellulose.

What Customers Are Saying

My hair used to be down to my waist. It was cracking off and falling out so badly I lost 8 inches of length even with taking pharmaceutical grade Folic Acid. I mentioned it to my Chiro and he handed me a bottle of Pure Encapsulations Biotin. After a week I noticed incredibly improved skin. My nails and hair aren't growing like a weed, by my husband agrees my hair looks better. It has stopped cracking and falling out like it was. With more time I hope to see more improvement. I have tried several other Pure Encap. products, all of which are working amazing so far. In my opinion they are the best manuf. in the USA. I'll use nothing else, ever again.
I tried Biotin a few months ago at the suggestion of a friend. I noticed results in just a few days with my hair feeling and looking fuller. After a few weeks, I noticed new growth. My daughter noticed, too, and tried it for herself. She's an RN and checked for any side effects (there aren't any). She's now using it and several of her co-workers as well. My nails are smooth with no more ridges, and my skin feels less dry. This far exceeded my expectations.
I am just so impressed with this company, the customer service was so helpful and so nice and then they told me I can talk to a doctor and you all have given me such a sense of peace, thank you so much. Keep up the good work!
