Biotin 8 mg

Biotin 8 mg by Douglas Laboratories is also known as vitamin B7, a critical water soluble vitamin that is an essential co-factor for a number of metabolic carboxylation reactions, including carbohydrate, fat and protein metabolism. Biotin may provide support for healthy glucose metabolism, nerve function and nail strength.

Functions

Biotin forms a covalent bond to the following carboxylase enzymes: pyruvate carboxylase for glucose metabolism, acetyl CoA carboxylase for fatty acid oxidation, and propinonyl-CoA carboxylase and β- methylcrotonyl-CoA carboxylase for amino acid metabolism.

It is thought that biotin supports healthy glucose metabolism by stimulating glucose-induced insulin secretion in pancreatic beta cells and by accelerating glycolysis in the liver and pancreas. Biotin also enhances muscle insulin sensitivity by increasing guanylate cyclase activity. In a Japanese study, oral supplementation of 3 mg biotin three times daily for one month supported healthy fasting glucose levels by 45%; no effect was observed in subjects taking placebo.

Indications

Biotin 8 mg is a dietary supplement indicated for insulin sensitivity, nerve support and nail strength.
