Biotin (Vitamin B7)
Biotin is a water-soluble member of the Vitamin-B Complex necessary for the proper function of other vitamins such as Folic Acid (Vitamin B9) and Pantothenic Acid (Vitamin B5).
Studies suggest Biotin is necessary for cellular processes at a genetic level, such as DNA replication and gene expression.[1,2]
Biotin has been investigated for its role in proper metabolism of essential fatty acids (“EFAs”). Insufficient biotin results in impaired synthesis of long-chain EFAs, even with adequate consumption of essential fatty acids.
Biotin is an important ingredient in essential metabolic reactions and energy release at the cellular level.[5,6] A healthy balance of biotin in the body is crucial to normal organ functioning, especially in the brain and heart.
Each serving of Elebra contains Biotin, and is manufactured in the USA at a cGMP facility that has an "A" rating (the highest possible) from the National Nutritional Foods Association. We stand behind our product and offer a 100% Money Back Guarantee.
