General description

Biotin (vitamin B7 or vitamin H) is a water-soluble B complex vitamin, which consists of an uredo ring fused by a tetrahydrothiophene ring. It is available in various foods, like whole grains, nuts, legumes, unpolished rice and egg yolk. Biotin is also produced by the normal gut flora.

Biochem/physiol Actions

Biotin is a vital cofactor for carboxylase enzymes in several metabolic pathways. It also functions as a coenzyme in the metabolism of fatty acids, isoleucine and valine. Biotin assists the transfer of carbon dioxide and also sustains a steady blood sugar level. Biotin is implicated in gluconeogenesis and citric acid cycle. It is involved in keratin synthesis and hence is used as a supplement for skin, hair and nail growth. Biotin is required for cell growth, production of fatty acids and the metabolism of fats and amino acids.
