Biotin – a vitamin many think of for helping with skin, hair and nails – is a water-soluble vitamin which is critical in helping your body convert food to energy.
The body is unable to store water-soluble vitamins therefore it must be replenished on a regular basis.
Foods which contain biotin include organ meats, nut butters and nuts, mushrooms, cauliflower, egg yolks, cheese, peanuts, leafy greens, soybeans and yeast. The bacteria in your gut also produces a certain amount of biotin.
Who Needs High Dose Biotin?
Just about anyone can take low doses of biotin to help with hair, skin & nails. But many people have higher biotin needs and seek out higher dosages to assist with specific nutritional deficits.
Alcoholics are at a high risk of biotin deficiencies as biotin absorption is inhibited by alcohol.
Those with Crohn’s disease as well as those taking anti-seizure medications or antibiotics for an extended length of time are also at risk of biotin deficiencies.
Additionally, scientists have recently discovered that those who suffer from neurodegenerative diseases such Multiple Sclerosis (MS) may also have a biotin deficiency and could benefit from biotin supplementation.
Understanding Biotin Labels
Many people are unaware by the fact that biotin is typically sold in micrograms (mcg) rather than milligrams (mg).
Five mg = 5,000 mcg, and the amount of biotin supplementation needed by the average person will correspond to their age, although those with nerve health deficiencies may benefit from higher doses of biotin.
Get Your Biotin From Myetin®
High-Dose D-Biotin is a naturally occurring form of Biotin that assists numerous functions of the fibody.
When administered in high doses over time, it acts as a nutrient that supports the production of the myelin sheath. That’s the layer around nerves that allows for easy transmission of electrical impulses provided that there is enough cellular energy. NAD+ enhances energy and fatty acid production that help the cells in the body optimally function.
NAD+ provides the energy and Biotin-D delivers the nutrients. Together they make Myetin work.
Avior Nutritionals combines high dose biotin and NAD+ in one formula, known as Myetin®. We believe the body can heal itself with proper help and strongly believe in the science behind NAD+ and high dose biotin.
