Biotin is a B vitamin that is sometimes referred to as vitamin H or vitamin B7. It is one of the eight vitamins in the vitamin B-complex. The B vitamins, in general, help in promoting healthy nerves, skin, eyes, hair, and liver.
Most diets contain foods that supply more than enough biotin to keep an individual healthy. Biotin may be obtained two ways:
- From food – Biotin is naturally present in many foods, such as meats, saltwater fish, cooked egg yolks, milk, poultry, legumes, whole grains, and brewer’s yeast.
- From our intestine – Biotin is one of the few vitamins that can be made in the intestine by intestinal bacteria.
However, there are medical conditions, such as biotinidase deficiency and mitochondrial disease that prevent patients from receiving adequate supplies of biotin through the typical diet or intestinal bacteria. When food or intestinal sources are inadequate, additional biotin may be helpful. Solace Nutrition’s Cyto B7 makes it possible to provide patients with biotin in a high-quality, highly concentrated liquid.
Biotin is Important in Metabolism and Energy Production
Biotin assists in the metabolism of carbohydrates, fats, and proteins by helping to activate certain critical enzymes called carboxylases. As a coenzyme, it is involved in how the cell creates new glucose from other sources. It also helps in regulating fat metabolism and the amount of fat that’s broken down to form energy. One more function of biotin is to assist in the manner in which cells break down certain building blocks of protein to create molecules for energy production.
Metabolic Disorders – Biotinidase Deficiency
Biotinidase deficiency (BTD) is not due to inadequate biotin. BTD is a metabolic disorder that is the result of a low concentration, or complete lack, of the enzyme biotinidase. Biotinidase deficiency is an inherited disorder in which the body is not able to properly process the vitamin biotin. Biotin is an essential vitamin to the metabolic process. One of the multiple functions of biotinidase is to allow biotin to become available for use by the body. Mutations in the BTD gene cause biotinidase deficiency.
Biochemical and clinical manifestation includes: ketolactic acidosis, organic aciduria, hyperammonemia, skin rash, feeding problems, hypotonia, seizures, developmental delay, alopecia, and coma.
As with all Solace Nutrition products, Cyto B7 is a top-quality medical food that contains only essential ingredients. It only contains scientifically researched ingredients, and all nutrients in the formulation have a daily requirement.
