BIOTIN


THE BREAKDOWN
  • Draws energy from food source
  • Breaks down protein
  • Keeps hair from falling out
  • Strengthens the immune system


IN THE BODY
Biotin is taken out of digested food and bacteria stored in the intestines.


WITHDRAWALS
Without the proper amount of Biotin in the system, you might suffer from abnormal hair loss, pain in the joints and bones, depression, derangement and the lowering of the immune system.


NATURAL FORMS
Natural forms of Biotin can be found in yeast, nuts, fish, beans and even Oatmeal!


DAILY DOSE
  • Men and Women 30 mcg
  • Breast feeding women 35 mcg



OVER DOSAGE
Have as much as you like. There are no negative effects of too much Biotin.


FIGHTING AGENTS
If you are taking Sulfa, narcotics, drinking heavily or taking estrogen, you may not be receiving the proper amount of Biotin. Also, if you have been taking antibiotics for an extensive period of time, you may have to step up your intake of Biotin to retain sufficient functionality.


SUPPLEMENTS
Biotin is often used to speed up the body's metabolism for weight loss. Supplements are also used for hair loss and significant skin problems. It is also thought to be a major deterrent for muscular dystrophy.
