The Biotin 5000 mcg (5 mg) capsules available from Nature's Wealth Vitamins Health Food Store is a water-soluble vitamin, generally classified as a B-Complex vitamin.
Biotin is required by all organisms and essential to normal growth and development and overall health as it breaks down and metabolize fats in the body. In its active form biotin is attached at the active site of four important enzymes, known as carboxylases which create essential metabolic reactions. These enzymes are involved in the biosynthesis of fatty acids, gluconeogenesis (the formation of glucose from sources other than carbohydrates, such as amino acids and fats), energy production, the metabolism of the indispensable amino acids L-leucine, L-isoleucine, L-valine, and in the metabolism of other amino acids, cholesterol, and odd chain fatty acids.
Biotin is Essential for Healthy Skin and Hair
