Vitamin H, also known as biotin and coenzyme R, is a water-soluble vitamin and also belongs to the vitamin B family, B7. It is a necessary substance for the synthesis of vitamin C and an indispensable substance for the normal metabolism of fat and protein. It is a nutrient necessary to maintain the human body's natural growth, development and normal human function and health.
Discovery of Vitamin H
In the 1930s, when researching yeast growth factors and rhizobia growth and respiration promotion factors, a factor found in the liver that can prevent hair loss and skin damage in rats induced by feeding raw egg protein.
Biotin is a member of the water-soluble vitamin B group. It is more abundant in liver, kidney, yeast, and milk, and is an important factor for organisms to fix carbon dioxide.
What is Vitamin H used for?
The physiological function of vitamin H
1. Participate in the body's lipid metabolism. Biotin participates in fatty acid synthesis. It is also an essential substance for long-chain unsaturated and normal fatty acid synthesis and fatty acid metabolism. In addition. Biotin is also related to the synthesis of acetylcholine and cholesterol metabolism.
2. Participate in the body's protein and nucleic acid metabolism. Biotin plays an important role in protein synthesis, amino acid deamination, purine synthesis, carbamoyl transfer, and catabolism of leucine and tryptophan. It is also necessary for the decarboxylation of various amino acid transfers.
3. Participate in the body's carbohydrate metabolism in carbohydrate metabolism. Biotinase participates in catalyzing decarboxylation and carboxylation reactions and is an essential component of the tricarboxylic acid cycle. It participates in and affects the metabolic process of pyruvate decarboxylation to oxaloacetic acid, malic acid to pyruvate, succinic acid and propionic acid, and oxalosuccinic acid to n-ketosuccinic acid.
4. Participate in the metabolism of other substances. Biotin is also used as a coenzyme component to participate in the metabolic processes of other nutrients such as methyl transfer reaction and sugar metabolism. At the same time, biotin is also related to the activation of lysozyme and the function of sebaceous glands; it is closely related to the metabolism of folic acid and pantothenic acid.
The efficacy of vitamin H
1) Participating in the metabolism of fatty acids and carbohydrates in the body, it is a coenzyme of many enzymes.
2) Promote protein synthesis, urea synthesis and excretion.
3) Improve the regulation of blood sugar, which is beneficial to the health and regeneration of cells.
What are the Vitamin H side effects?
Vitamin H deficiency symptoms
1. Lack of vitamin H causes increased dandruff, easy hair loss, and juvenile gray hair; 2. Lack of vitamin H can cause dull complexion, blue complexion and dermatitis; 3.

Toxicity of Vitamin H
The toxicity of vitamin H seems to be very low. The treatment of seborrheic dermatitis with high doses of vitamin H has not found abnormal protein metabolism or genetic errors and other metabolic abnormalities. Animal experiments also show that biotin is rarely toxic.
