Biotin 1% (Vitamin B7)
What is Biotin?
Biotin, also known as vitamin B7, is a water-soluble vitamin that plays a vital role in metabolism, gene regulation, and cell signaling. It’s a type of vitamin called a co-factor, meaning it helps enzymes break down fatty acids, glucose and amino acids so your body can function properly. While biotin gained fame as a beauty booster, it does more than keep your hair, nails and skin healthy.
Biotin 1% is a combination of both dicalcium phosphate and biotin.
Biotin is well-known for its benefits on hair, skin, and nail health and is commonly found in anti-aging creams and lotions. When taken orally, it may promote hair growth and support healthy hair. Biotin may also help support healthy glucose levels and contribute to cardiovascular health. It also helps fortify the brain, support cognitive ability and mood, and promote feelings of well-being.

Serving Size & Timing
About 100mg of Biotin supplement is the recommended dosage per day. However, the FDA recommendation is for 300 mcg per day, which is notably lower in dose. Because the mixture contains 1% Biotin, only 1mg of the solution is actual Biotin. There are about 1,000 mcg in every milligram, so 100mg amounts to approximately 333% of the daily value of 300 mcg.
CONCENTRATION OF BIOTIN 1%
This particular mixture of Biotin 1% contains 99% DiCalcium Phosphate, which serves as a carrier. The powder is very fine and should be kept in a cool, dry area away from heat and light.
BIOTIN 1% SIDE EFFECTS
No specific side effects have been associated with Biotin, and even overuse results in very few reports of problematic symptoms. Because it is part of the B-Vitamin complex, any excess is excreted through the urinary tract.
This B vitamin can be found naturally in the human body in small quantities. It is usually located and stored in the brain, muscle and liver. Biotin can be found in dishes that include egg yolk, liver, nuts, grainy cereals, beans and legumes. While processed foods may still contain some level of Biotin, the heat involved in cooking and maintaining freshness of these processed food items may inadvertently kill a lot of the Biotin available in these sources. The fresher the foods are, the higher the levels of Biotin that will be found in them.
Biotin 1% dissolves easily in water, coffee, juice, and most other drinkable liquids that are water based. However, it is most efficient when it is taken with other B vitamins, so try to find a B-vitamin-rich drink to dissolve it into.
