1. how does a biotin deficiency manifest itself?
Anyone who eats a balanced diet should not actually develop a biotin deficiency. However, since nowadays many people do not eat enough vegetables and fruit, biotin deficiencies are becoming more and more common. A deficiency of the vitamin is often due to a congenital enzyme defect. This prevents the release and absorption of biotin. In this case, more biotin is excreted through the urinary tract and the rest of the biotin becomes very limited in absorption. People with a congenital intestinal disorder also have great difficulty absorbing and utilizing biotin properly. Prolonged artificial feeding can also lead to an undersupply. Common symptoms of biotin deficiency are nausea, weakness, cracked mouth corners and brittle hair. A deficiency can usually be remedied by a change in diet. It is also advisable to change to biotin-rich foods and possibly to supplement biotin in the form of food supplements.
2 How much biotin should one take in daily?
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.
3) How does a biotin surplus manifest itself?
An excess of biotin cannot be caused by eating too much biotin-rich food. Excess develops from overdosing on biotin in the form of supplements. Side effects of excess are often nausea and vomiting. Changes in supplementation should always be discussed with a physician for this reason.
4) Meeting biotin requirements with biotin supplements
If you eat a balanced diet, do a lot of sport or do not manage to ensure your daily biotin supply through your diet, you can alternatively take biotin capsules or biotin tablets. Biotin tablets are often sold in local pharmacies, drugstores and supermarkets. However, in many cases these are produced with artificial additives or manufactured abroad. Biotin capsules, on the other hand, often contain the active ingredient in a vegetable cellulose shell and can be produced without fillers. It is also important that the biotin preparation is produced in Germany to ensure consistently high quality.

5. conclusion: How does a biotin deficiency show?
