Description: Biotin is a simple monocarboxylic acid. It works as a coenzyme to break down carbohydrates and fats into energy and helps the body utilize protein. Biotin is essential for healthy hair and skin.
Infants can develop a deficiency from poor absorption of Biotin. In these cases, infants develop seborrheic dermatitis or ‘cradle cap’, characterized by a dry, scaly scalp. Deficiency is rare in adults because intestinal synthesis is a significant source of Biotin. However, antibiotics, sulfa drugs, saccharin and the ingestion of large quantities of raw egg whites will produce deficiency symptoms.
