Biotin, vitamin B7 or vitamin H, is a water-soluble vitamin that’s a part of the vitamin B complex, a group of key nutrients needed for healthy metabolic, nerve, digestive and cardiovascular functions.
🅱️7️⃣Biotin acts as a coenzyme in the body that’s needed for the metabolism of fatty acids, amino acids and glucose.
🅱️7️⃣The human body cannot synthesize biotin. Only bacteria, molds, yeasts, algae, and certain plants can make it, so the diet needs to supply it.
🅱️7️⃣Vitamin B7 is a water soluble vitamin, which means it dissolves best in water and any excess is mostly flushed away in urine.
1️⃣supports a healthy metabolism
2️⃣may improve glucose intolerance and balance blood sugar
3️⃣maintains healthy hair, skin, and nails
4️⃣protects brain function and fights cognitive decline
5️⃣helps maintain a healthy cardiovascular system
6️⃣supports thyroid and adrenal function
7️⃣needed to build and repair tissues and muscles
Best Sources of vitamin B7:
Avocados, salmon, egg yolk, liver, raspberries, cauliflowers, whole grain bread (yessss!), cheese, peanuts, yeast and more.
There are actually 8️⃣ different forms of biotin, but only 1️⃣ is naturally occurring, the kind found in food sources.
This type is called “D-biotin” and is believed to be the only type that has full vitamin capabilities.
This is why it’s always best to get your vitamins and minerals from real food sources whenever possible, since they include nutrients just as nature intended for the body to use.
➖ Deficiency ➖
❗️A scaly red rash around the eyes, nose, mouth, and genitals
❗️Cracks in the corner of the mouth
❗️Sore tongue that may be magenta in color
❗️Loss of appetite
❗️Neurological symptoms in adults, such as depression, lethargy, hallucination, and numbness and tingling of the extremities
➕ Excess ➕
‼️Although toxicity is very rare, certain medications, including the skin medication isotretinoin (Accutane) that is prescribed for acne, may reduce the activity of vitamin B7. Abnormally high doses of other B vitamins like pantothenic acid can also lower levels of vitamin B7 biotin in the body.
Just hit another deer in the white b7. Luckily it did a lot less damage than last time, which required me to replace both doors, headlights, a side mirror and the front left fender. Still broke my grill and rolled the hood a bit :( #deer#angry#audi#b7a4#b7
Happy Father’s Day to all the dads out there!!
