1. weight gain through biotin capsules?
Many people wonder if weight gain can result from taking biotin in supplement form. Supplementation of biotin does not cause any gain. Biotin or also called vitamin B7 ensures healthy functioning of metabolism, digestion and circulation. In addition, biotin provides beautiful skin, hair and nails. However, a deficiency of the vitamin can lead to weight gain. A biotin deficiency occurs when the human organism can no longer be sufficiently supplied with biotin. This is often caused by an unbalanced diet in which the body no longer receives sufficient vitamins. Since the organism cannot produce biotin itself, vitamin B7 must be supplied daily. Risk groups that are more frequently affected by a biotin deficiency and thus have an increased risk of biotin deficiency are people with congenital digestive disorders and problems in the digestive tract. In addition, the risk increases with long-term use of antibiotics or use of anti-seizure medications.
2) What is the daily requirement of biotin and how can I cover it?
The German Nutrition Society (DGE) recommends a daily intake of about 30-60 µg of biotin for adults. The daily intake of biotin for an adult corresponds to about 100 g of peanuts. For children, the value is between 15-30 µg. In certain life situations, such as pregnancy, more biotin is needed.
The daily biotin requirement can be met by a balanced and varied diet. Vegetables, fruit and wholemeal products form the basis and should be eaten in abundance. This is the only way to obtain all vitamins, minerals and trace elements. Very good sources of biotin are eggs, nuts and oatmeal.
3 What does biotin do in the body?
Biotin is also known as vitamin B7. Because it is essential for skin and hair, it is also known as vitamin H. Biotin has a positive effect on the growth of nails. It positively influences the growth of nails and hair roots. Thus, the hair grows back stronger and the nail strength can be improved. Biotin participates in many metabolic processes in the human organism and plays an important role as a cofactor in the metabolism of fats, carbohydrates, proteins and cholesterol.
4. biotin in the form of food supplements
If you want to increase a low biotin level with a dietary supplement, you should pay attention to the form of the active ingredient and its origin.
