Natural Factors Biotin
Biotin is popular for many hair product formulas as it has a positive effect on hair follicles and is reputed to help baldness. It promotes strong nails, healthy hair and may help seborrheic dermatitis. Biotin is involved in the metabolism of protein, fats and carbohydrates. One clinical study showed that 2.5 mg of biotin per day strengthened the fingernails of two-thirds of people with brittle nails. Although it seems to help with cradle cap in infants, the whole B complex is of more value in adult seborrheic dermatitis than biotin alone.
Biotin is produced by intestinal bacteria, so a biotin deficiency is rare. However, people using antibiotics on a long-term basis or who eat large amounts of raw egg whites can develop a deficiency, because the protein in raw egg whites inhibits biotin absorption.
