Biotin Definition
What Is Biotin?

A vitamin of the B complex found especially in yeast, liver, and egg yolk and active in growth promotion. Biotin is also known as vitamin H or B7, has the chemical formula C10H16N2O3S (Biotin; Coenzyme R, Biopeiderm), is a water-soluble B-complex vitamin which is composed of an ureido (tetrahydroimidizalone) ring fused with a tetrahydrothiophene ring. Biotin is a cofactor in the metabolism of fatty acids and leucine, and in gluconeogenesis. Biotin is an essential compound for cell growth, the production of fatty acids, and the metabolism of fats and amino acids. It plays a major role in the Citric acid cycle, which is the process by which biochemical energy is generated during aerobic respiration. Biotin not only assists in various metabolic reactions, but also helps to transfer carbon dioxide. Biotin is also helpful in maintaining a steady blood sugar level. Biotin is often recommended for strengthening hair and nails. Consequently, it is found in many cosmetic and health products for the hair and skin. Biotin deficiency may lead to skin rash, hair loss, high cholesterol and heart problems.
