Pure Encapsulations Biotin offers support for nail, nerves, and the metabolism. Is a water-soluble B complex vitamin, biotin is involved in many essential bodily processes. One of the main benefits of biotin is its potential to promote the bodys metabolism of nutrients. It serves as a co-factor for the metabolization of the proteins, fats, and carbohydrates you eat. As a result, it may help your body process energy and carry carbon dioxide throughout. The vitamin may also support certain immune cells, which may protect you from feeling sick. In addition, biotin can support the health of nerve cells. The nervous system is responsible for transmitting signals from your brain to different parts of the body, which perform voluntary and involuntary functions. Biotin also promotes outer beauty, because it may help keep your nails and hair strong due to its positive impact on keratin infrastructure. It works to reinforce the structure of this basic protein by affecting the arrangement of cells in the nail bed. As a result, you may have thicker, less brittle nails that grow more easily and are less likely to split and look unsightly. When it comes to your hair, biotin may promote some hair growth if the follicles are weak. Recommended use: 1 capsule, 1-2 times daily with a meal, or as directed by a healthcare professional.

Biotin is a water-soluble B vitamin that is an essential co-factor for a number of metabolic carboxylation reactions involved in metabolism. Biotin can help strengthen hair, nails, and skin as well as maintain a healthy nervous system.*
Promotes healthy glucose metabolism and nerve health; helps support healthy nails* Biotin is a water-soluble B vitamin that is an essential co-factor for a number of metabolic carboxylation reactions. Biotin forms a covalent bond to the following carboxylase enzymes: pyruvate carboxylase for glucose metabolism, acetyl CoA carboxylase for fatty acid oxidation, and propionyl-CoA carboxylase and ?-methylcrotonyl-CoA carboxylase for amino acid metabolism. A clinical study reported that high dose administration of biotin helped promote healthy glucose metabolism. A number of animal studies support this claim. Biotin may also act to promote transcription and translation of glucokinase, an enzyme found in the liver and pancreas that participates in the metabolism of glucose to form glycogen.
Studies have also indicated that biotin is supportive of nervous system health and function. A clinical study revealed that biotin promotes nerve cell health. In addition, a double-blind study reported that biotin supplementation may promote healthy lipid metabolism. Furthermore, clinical studies have indicated that biotin may adjust the cellular arrangement of the nail bed, helping to reinforce the keratin structure, promote strength and thickness, and reduce splitting. Recent studies have expanded biotins metabolic role, claiming that the vitamin maintains healthy genetic expression of the many enzymes for which it is a cofactor. One study suggested that this gene modulation is supportive of healthy immune system function, stating that biotin may be involved in the transcription of some immune cells.* Biotin provides potential support for healthy glucose metabolism, nerve function, and nail strength.*
