Basic Information of D-Biotin
Chemical Name: D-Biotin
Cas No.: 58-85-5
Molecular Formula: C10H16N2O3S
Biotin is a water-soluble B-vitamin, also called vitamin B7 and formerly known as vitamin H or coenzyme R.It is composed of a ureido ring fused with a tetrahydrothiophene ring. A valeric acid substituent is attached to one of the carbon atoms of the tetrahydrothiophene ring. Biotin is a coenzyme for carboxylase enzymes, involved in the synthesis of fatty acids, isoleucine, and valine, and in gluconeogenesis.
Biotin deficiency can be caused by inadequate dietary intake or inheritance of one or more inborn genetic disorders that affect biotin metabolism. Subclinical deficiency can cause mild symptoms, such as hair thinning or skin rash typically on the face. Neonatal screening for biotinidase deficiency began in the United States in 1984 and today many countries test for this disorder at birth. Individuals born prior to 1984 are unlikely to have been screened, thus the true prevalence of the disorder is unknown.
D-biotin is the naturally occurring, biologically active form of the B vitamin biotin. It's involved in lipid, protein and carbohydrate metabolism. Because biotin is relatively plentiful among foods and your intestines are even able to produce it, a deficiency is rare and supplements are usually unnecessary unless your doctor recommends them. Foods rich in biotin include eggs, dairy products, peanuts, almonds, walnuts, wheat bran, whole-wheat bread, wild salmon, Swiss chard, cauliflower, avocados and raspberries.
D-biotin is one of eight forms of the water-soluble vitamin, biotin, also known as vitamin B-7. It is a coenzyme -- or helper enzyme -- for numerous metabolic reactions in the body. D-biotin is involved in lipid and protein metabolism and helps convert food into glucose, which the body uses for energy. It's also vital for maintaining skin, hair and mucous membranes
