Pathway Biotin

Posted on by Paula Gallagher

There is only week left to take advantage of Village Green Apothecary’s sale on Pathway products, including Pathway Biotin. Biotin is a water soluble, sulphur-containing member of the B complex. Biotin is most well known for its promotion of healthy hair and skin. Essential to human nutrition, it is also involved in the biosynthesis of fatty acids, energy production and metabolism. Deficiencies may occur with excessive consumption of alcohol, refined foods and raw egg whites. Raw egg whites contain a protein called avidin which inhibits biotin absorption. Here are three reasons to take biotin: 1.Skin, Hair and Nails: Studies have shown that taking supplemental biotin may increase the strength and thickness of fingernails. 2. Diabetes: Biotin deficiency results in impaired utilization of glucose. Supplementing with biotin has been shown to support healthy blood glucose levels. 3. Elevated Triglycerides: Clinical studies have shown that biotin can significantly lower elevated triglycerides and very low-density lipoproteins (VLDL).
