Biotin Info

Biotin is one of the water soluble B group vitamins. It is sometimes called vitamin H or vitamin B7. Biotin has various essential roles in the body, as a coenzyme in fat and carbohydrate metabolism, for cellular growth and function, essential fatty acid conversion and regulating gene expression in blood sugar function.

Hair, skin and nails all require biotin for good health.

Biotin Benefits

Biotin is an essential nutrient in both preventing and treating diabetes. It can also help reduce high blood cholesterol levels.

In general it is rare for a biotin deficiency to occur, unless dietary intake is severely compromised or there is a genetic cause. An exception to this is in pregnant women, as recent studies show marginal biotin deficiency develops in a significant proportion of normal pregnancies. For this reason a B complex supplement containing biotin is recommended during pregnancy. Cradle cap in infants can result from biotin deficiency and may be alleviated by the breastfeeding mother taking a B complex supplement. Biotin may also help hair loss or brittle nails in cases where it is caused by a biotin deficiency.

Biotin Side Effects

Biotin should always be taken in conjunction with a B complex supplement, as all the B group vitamins need to be present in the correct ratio for optimal effect.

Product Reviews

  • Not strong enough

    star

    I tried these Thompsons 150mg tablets for hair loss for 6 months and nothing happened. My naturopath recommended I up my dose to a 10x stronger tablet (1500mg a day) only THEN I saw results. Within a few weeks I had baby hairs growing back, and all the thin patches growing back. After several years my hair is much thicker and nearly waist length. Whenever I switched back to the Thompsons weaker tablets I noticed my hair falling out again. They need to provide a more effective dose - its too expensive/difficult to swallow 10 tablets a day when other brands do the better tablets for the same price. Biotin is water soluble so it is very safe at higher doses and doesn't build up in the body like Iron does.

    Very good for milk production during pregnancy - easier in tablet form than powder form for me
