Thompsons Biotin 150mcg is a superior vitamin B supplement designed to support healthy cell functions. Biotin is important in carbohydrate (sugar), fat and protein metabolism in the body. Biotin, or vitamin H, is part of the important vitamin B complex family. Despite being needed by the body only in little amounts, Biotin holds important functions in many enzymatic processes for sugar, fat and protein metabolism. It acts as a cofactor for many enzymes and aids in proper cell growth and replication.
In addition to being present in food, Biotin is naturally occurring in the body since it can be synthesized by intestinal bacteria.
According to research, Biotin increases nail plate thickness by up to 91%, which is beneficial for those with brittle nails. As such, it is possible that the nutrient helps improve oil metabolism in the scalp. Furthermore, Biotin may aid in the treatment of seborrheic dermatitis, a condition manifesting as excess sebum and dandruff in the scalp; and in treating a similar condition in infants called cradle cap. Biotin also assists in carbohydrate metabolism for those with diabetes and diabetic neuropathy. In such cases, Biotin supplementation may be beneficial.
