Your body needs biotin to metabolize carbohydrates, fats, and amino acids, the building blocks of protein. Biotin is often used for strengthening hair and nails and is an integral part of many popular cosmetic products. Like all B vitamins, biotin is a water-soluble vitamin and is thus not stored by the body – making it essential to consume it through diet and supplementation. Life Extensions does the work for you, delivering the ideal daily dose of pharmaceutical grade biotin in fast-dissolve capsules that provide long lasting support for sustained energy and outer radiance.
Biotin is used as a cofactor of enzymes involved in synthesizing glucose from noncarbohydrate sources to support energy production. In its coenzyme form, biotin plays an important role in metabolic functioning in fatty acid synthesis and breakdown – important steps in producing soft, clear skin and maintaining energy levels. Biotin helps to maintain balanced blood sugar levels to keep you steady and focused throughout the day.
Observation has revealed that those with low biotin levels often experience hair loss, scaling scalp, and uncombable hair. Biotin deficiency can also cause dry, cracked, uneven skin. With Life Extension Biotin, you can easily replenish your body’s vital biotin stores for thick, shiny hair, clear skin, and strong nails all in one go.
Support a radiant appearance and sustained energy that lasts throughout the day with premium Life Extension Biotin, the perfect daily nutrient support for better quality of life.

Biotin – Biotin, an unnumbered member of the water soluble B-complex family, is a cofactor of several enzymes involved in fatty acid metabolism, gluconeogenesis, and amino acid catabolism, and is essential in maintaining metabolic homeostasis. Biotin is an important nutrient for healthy skin and nails, and it helps to keep your eyes, liver, and nervous system working properly.
Q. How is Biotin Involved in Metabolism?
A. Biotin works by breaking down food into glucose molecules, which are the direct precursor needed for ATP (energy) production. Biotin plays an important role in metabolic functioning as a coenzyme carrier of activated carbon dioxide in the TCA cycle (also known as the Krebs cycle). It synthesizes and breaks down certain fatty acids and amino acids.
Q. What Role Does Biotin Play in Physical Appearance?
A. Biotin deficiency has been linked to uncombable hair syndrome, hair loss, and scaling of the scalp. Low biotin levels have also been linked to brittle nails and dry, scaly, cracked skin. Biotin supplementation may help to increase the growth rate of hair and eliminate scalp scaling. It may also increase moisturization and fat content of the skin to make it supple, soft, and smooth.
Q. How Often Should I Take Biotin?
A. Life Extension Biotin recommends that you take just 1 capsule daily with meals, or as recommended by a healthcare practitioner. If desired, you may safely consume up to 4 capsules of Life Extension Biotin per day. Because it is a water soluble vitamin, excess is simply excreted and dramatically reduces any risk of toxicity.
Q. Who is at an Increased Risk for Biotin Deficiency?
A. Biotin is not stored in the body. Because of this, a number of factors can cause you to become low in biotin. Biotin deficiency can develop during pregnancy or in people who have poor nutrition or experience rapid weight loss. Biotin deficiency can also occur in those who experience significant stress on a regular basis and those who exercise at high intensities.
