Biotin is sometimes referred to as “vitamin H” or “coenzyme R.” It was first discovered as a factor that protected against the toxicity of raw egg whites. It is destroyed when eggs are thoroughly cooked.
Biotin is required in the process of energy production in the cells of the body. It may help prevent premature graying and balding.
In adults, inadequate biotin consumption can lead to a scaly dermatitis and hair loss. Deficiency is more commonly seen in infants in whom the scaly dermatitis is described as “cradle cap.”
Those Who may need to supplement
REQUIRED NUTRITIONAL INTAKE
The COMA report of 1991 suggested daily intake of biotin from 10 to 200 mcg. The range described is very wide because not enough is yet known about biotin to be more specific. Actual dietary intake of biotin has been found to be between 10 and 58 mcg daily.
Best food sources
Having been reportedly given to young infants at doses of up to 40 mg without problems, biotin is regarded as a safe vitamin.
INTERACTIONS & CONTRAINDICATIONS
Biotin, as one of the B-complex vitamins, is best taken as part of the group of B vitamins, although single supplementation is safe as part of a nutritional therapeutic program.
Beets, (Beta vulgaris L) also called beetroot, have been consumed and believed to be a nutritious vegetable. Beetroot is a dark red vegetable which has been linked with so many health benefits including better stamina, improved blood flow and lowering blood pressure. Rather than drinking beet juice, isolated molecules from Beet Juice in capsule form alone has many health boosting benefits. Beet Root isolated compound from beet juice increases blood flow to the brain in older people, which may be able to fight the progression of dementia and acts as a good neurotransmitter.
Beet Root Extract is a natural organic nitric oxide which helps lower blood pressure and it is a nutrient that acts as a vasodilator. Vasodilators are agents that widen the blood vessels, therefore, cause a decrease in vascular resistance and an increase in blood flow. Vasodilators are used to treat hypertension, angina and congestive heart failure.
Beet Root Extract contains phytopigments called betalains. The two types of betalain compounds, betanin and vulgaxanthin, are high in anti-oxidant properties. These compounds help to detoxify the body. These betalain compounds can suppress cyclooxygenase enzymes, which can contribute to tumor growth. Beet Root is a rich source of folate, manganese and also contains thiamine, riboflavin, vitamin B6, pantothenic acid, choline, betaine, magnesium, phosphorus, potassium, zinc, copper and selenium as well as nitrates. Beet Root tends to contain Inorganic Nitrate (NO3-), as the main bioactive for cardiovascular and endurance exercise interactions
Carbohydrates, Protein and Fat in beet root: In addition to being low in calories, the Beet Root supplement is also much lower in carbohydrates, but the juice is a better source of protein. Carbohydrates provide energy, while protein supports muscle mass, immune system and body repair.
