Biotin is a water-soluble B-complex vitamin which is composed of an ureido ring fused with a tetrahydrothiophene ring, which attaches a valeric acid substituent at one of its carbon atoms. Biotin is used in cell growth, the production of fatty acids, metabolism of fats, and amino acids. It plays a role in the Kreb cycle, which is the process in which energy is released from food. Biotin not only assists in various metabolic chemical conversions, but also helps with the transfer of carbon dioxide. Biotin is also helpful in maintaining a steady blood sugar level. Biotin is often recommended for strengthening hair and nails. Consequenty, it is found in many cosmetic and health products for the hair and skin. Biotin deficiency is a rare nutritional disorder caused by a deficiency of biotin. Initial symptoms of biotin deficiency include: Dry skin, Seborrheic dermatitis, Fungal infections, rashes including erythematous periorofacial macular rash, fine and brittle hair, and hair loss or total alopecia. If left untreated, neurological symptoms can develop, including mild depression, which may progress to profound lassitude and, eventually, to somnolence; changes in mental status, generalized muscular pains (myalgias), hyperesthesias and paresthesias. The treatment for biotin deficiency is to simply start taking some biotin supplements. A lack of biotin in infants will lead to a condition called seborrheic dermatitis or "cradle cap". Biotin deficiencies are extremely rare in adults but if it does occur, it will lead to anemia, depression, hair loss, high blood sugar levels, muscle pain, nausea, loss of appetite and inflamed mucous membranes.
Mechanism of action
Biotin is necessary for the proper functioning of enzymes that transport carboxyl units and fix carbon dioxide, and is required for various metabolic functions, including gluconeogenesis, lipogenesis, fatty acid biosynthesis, propionate metabolism, and catabolism of branched-chain amino acids.
What is Biotin?
Biotin is a form of vitamin B, present in many foods and available as a supplement. Biotin is sold under many names, including Appearex, vitamin B7, vitamin H, biotina, biotine, and coenzyme R. Many multivitamins and B-vitamin supplements also contain biotin. Biotin works by breaking down food into sugar that your body can use for energy. Biotin is important for healthy skin and nails, and it also keeps your eyes, liver, and nervous system working properly. During pregnancy, biotin is important for normal fetal development. Biotin is not stored in the body. Because of this, you can become low on biotin if you don't get enough in your diet. Although biotin deficiency is rare, it can develop during pregnancy or in people who have poor nutrition or experience rapid weight loss. Symptoms of biotin deficiency include hair loss, dry skin, a scaly rash around the eyes or mouth, dry eyes, fatigue, and depression. Many people take biotin supplements in hopes of treating hair loss, cradle cap in infants, and brittle nails. Some people also take biotin supplements to treat diabetes and nerve pain associated with diabetes, although there is not much evidence to support this type of use. Some research also suggests that a deficiency in nutrients that include biotin could contribute to the development of type 2 diabetes. Two 2012 studies found that biotin improved the blood sugar and insulin levels of people with type 2 diabetes when they took it along with chromium supplements. The researchers concluded that taking biotin supplements may be beneficial for both people with diabetes and those who are obese.
Biotin for Hair
Biotin is a popular supplement for hair, skin, and fingernails, though there is little evidence to suggest that taking biotin supplements can stop hair loss or stimulate hair or nail growth. Similarly, using biotin shampoo or other hair products is unlikely to produce any benefit. There is some evidence that taking biotin supplements with other medications may help control hair loss that's associated with childhood alopecia.
Always check with your doctor before taking any supplement. Some conditions and medications can cause low levels of biotin.

Nonetheless, before taking biotin supplements, tell your doctor if you are pregnant, may become pregnant, or are breastfeeding. Do not give biotin to a child without talking to your doctor first. Also, ask your doctor if biotin might interact with any other medications you take.
Biotin Side Effects
Biotin is a safe and nontoxic vitamin. It has not been associated with any serious side effects, even in large doses. The FDA reports that biotin is safe and well tolerated when taken by mouth in recommended doses.
Pregnancy and Biotin
Biotin is likely safe if you are pregnant or breastfeeding. Nonetheless, you should always let your doctor know about any supplements you are taking if you are pregnant, breastfeeding, or may become pregnant. Always check with your doctor before giving biotin to a child.
Whether any medications interfere with the way biotin works is unclear. There are no known interactions between biotin and herbal medicines or other supplements. Nonetheless, always talk to your doctor before using any new drug or supplement. There are some drugs that can lower biotin levels in your body.
