Product Description

About Biotin

Biotin is a water-soluble vitamin which was first isolated in 1936. Biotin is naturally produced in the body by intestinal bacteria and is an essential co-factor for several enzymes. Biotin is essential for carbohydrate metabolism and the synthesis of fatty acids. It is also implicated in the conversion of amino acids into proteins. In addition to its role in metabolism and synthesis of carbohydrates and proteins, Biotin is essential for cellular energy and helps support healthy hair and nails, which is one of the main reasons why it is a popular supplement among consumers.

Whole-Food Biotin

Whole food vitamins are vitamin isolates that are cultured in a blend of yeast, S. cerevisiae being the most common, and other vital nutrients like SOD, CoQ10, complex carbohydrates (beta-1,3-glucans and mannan), dietary fiber, SOD (superoxide dismutase) and glutathione (an antioxidant found in yeast that plays a major role in cellular defense mechanisms).

Because many vitamins do not exist in natural yeast, the appropriate vitamin, biotin in this case, is embedded into a food concentrate with close affinity towards that specific vitamin by a proprietary process. Complexation of the vitamin with the food concentrate renders the nutrient more bio-available and this helps direct the nutrient to appropriate sites in the cell. An additional benefit of culturing isolated vitamins in this food concentrate is that it is safe, natural, wholesome, and does not have the metallic taste associated with synthetic vitamin isolates and provides individuals who do not wish to take synthetic vitamin isolates a whole-food alternative.

An additional benefit of culturing biotin in this food concentrate is that it is safe, natural, wholesome, and does not have the metallic taste that is sometimes associated with vitamin isolates and provides individuals who do not wish to take vitamin isolates a whole-food alternative.

What are natural food sources of Biotin?
Some natural food sources of Biotin include beef liver, roasted peanuts, chocolate, eggs, dried peas, cauliflower, mushrooms, and lima beans.

Does Whole-Food Biotin GOLD™ contain anything other than the active ingredient?
In addition to the active ingredient, each vegetarian capsule of Whole-Food Biotin GOLD™ contains a food concentrate that the Biotin was cultured in, which includes S. cerevisiae and other vital nutrients like SOD, CoQ10, complex carbohydrates (beta-1,3-glucans and mannan), dietary fiber, SOD (superoxide dismutase) and glutathione (an antioxidant found in yeast that plays a major role in cellular defense mechanisms). To some extent, this food concentrate is considered an integral part of the active ingredient and does not qualify as an additive or filler in the truest sense of those words.

Is Whole-Food Biotin GOLD™ free of allergens and GMOs?
Whole-Food Biotin GOLD™ is verified free of egg, gluten, milk, peanut, shellfish and soy by an independent, third-party lab. Individuals who have an allergen or intolerance to yeast or any of the other ingredients in the food concentrate that the Biotin is cultured in should consult their healthcare provider before taking the product. The product is also verified free of GMOs by the Non-GMO Project™.

Are there any known toxicity issues with Biotin supplementation?
There have not been any reported toxic effects even at large doses of biotin. In fact, although the RDA for Biotin has been set at around 30-35 mcg per day, most people take between 5,000 mcg and 10,000 mcg of Biotin in supplement form. However, it is always best to consult with your healthcare provider regarding safe, daily dosages prior to taking the supplement.

What are the side effects, contraindications, and/or drug interactions, if any, associated with Whole-Food Biotin GOLD™?
Sulfa drugs, estrogen, and alcohol consumption may raise biotin requirements. Prolonged use of anticonvulsant drugs may lead to biotin deficiency, requiring supplementation. Long-term use of antibiotics can affect the balance of the digestive system and reduce or stop the production of biotin by intestinal bacteria, making supplementation from food sources or dietary supplements necessary. As always, please take to your healthcare provider before supplementing with Biotin if you pregnant, breast-feeding, and/or taking any OTC or prescription medications for a health condition
