Vitamin H, also known as biotin or coenzyme R, is a water-soluble B-complex vitamin. It is a coenzyme in the synthesis of fatty acids, isoleucine, and valine, and it plays a role in gluconeogenesis.

Biotin is necessary for cell growth, the production of fatty acids, and the metabolism of fats and amino acids. It plays a role in the citric acid cycle, which is the process by which biochemical energy is generated during aerobic respiration. Biotin not only assists in various metabolic reactions but also helps to transfer carbon dioxide. Biotin may also be helpful in maintaining a steady blood sugar level. Biotin is often recommended for strengthening hair and nails.

Biotin is consumed from a wide range of food sources in the diet, however there are few particularly rich sources. Foods with a relatively high biotin content include Swiss chard, raw egg yolk, liver, Saskatoon berries, some vegetables, and peanuts. However, the consumption of egg whites with egg yolks minimizes the effectiveness of egg yolk's biotin in one's body, deficiency can be caused by the consumption of raw egg whites (eating two or more uncooked egg whites daily for several months has caused biotin deficiency that is serious enough to produce symptoms).Biotin deficiency causes dermatitis, hair loss, alopecia, neuromuscular dysfunction, and eurological symptoms in adults such as depression, lethargy, hallucination, and numbness and tingling of the extremities. And the deficiency can be addressed with supplementation.

We provide high quality biotin with a preferable price. Full-time quality control departments are utilized at each of our plants. Temperature, relative humidity control and other parameters were identified and controlled during the process. Perfect production system and complete quality monitor and control system are provided, thus ensures best quality.
