Apollo’s Hegemony Biotin is a dietary supplement helping to maintain healthy skin, hair and nails. The preparation contains as much as 10 000 mcg of biotin, which is not only the vitamin of beauty, but also the substance positively influencing the efficiency of the nervous system and carbohydrate metabolism.

Biotin is a substance soluble in water, belonging to the vitamins from the group B. It plays the function of a cofactor for four carboxylases (pyruvate, acetyl-CoA, propionyl-CoA and β–methylcrotonyl-CoA) – enzymes playing a key role in catalyzing many reactions essential for the proper course of metabolic processes. This vitamin takes part in the process of gluconeogenesis, fatty acid synthesis and amino acid metabolism and also it has the influence on the proper growth and development of the organism and the appearance of skin, hair and nails. 

The need for biotin
The need for biotin is varied and is dependent among other on age and physiological state. Moreover, it is believed that the need for this ingredient increases in case of pregnancy, taking anticonvulsant medications, in people fed parenterally for a long period of time and those with low sensitivity of the organism to insulin. Due to the fact that biotin is partially produced by the microflora of the digestive tract, the need for this ingredient also increases in case of digestion and food absorption disorders.

Consequences of biotin deficiency
Excessively low level of biotin in the organism manifests itself in the form of skin symptoms – psoriatic changes of hands, legs and shoulders, skin discoloration, inflammations, graying, excessively fatty hair, hair loss, fragility and brittleness of nails. 

Vitamin deficiency may also be related to nerve-muscle disorders, which may lead to excessive weakness and apathy, muscle pain, lower well-being and the appearance of depression and anxiety states. As a result of biotin deficiency, such symptoms as lack of appetite, nausea, vomiting and increased cholesterol concentration in blood may also appear.

Vitamin of beauty
Biotin is also called vitamin H (haut means “skin” in German) or vitamin B7. Biotin plays a vital role in the proper functioning of skin, its appendages and mucous membranes – by providing sulfur molecules it takes part in the synthesis of creatine and other ingredients responsible for bonding horny layers of skin, hair and nails, it supports differentiation of epidermis cells and inhibits the function of sebaceous glands as well as stabilizes lipid balance of skin.

Biotin improves hair elasticity, gives shine and thickness and strengthens their protection against the activity of environmental factors, such as hair styling, smoke and UV radiation. Moreover, it strengthens nails plate and increases its thickness, supports the processes of regeneration and counteracts their radiation. By inhibiting the activity of sebaceous glands, it counteracts seborrhea and supports the treatment of juvenile acne.

Glucose homeostasis
The properties of biotin are especially vital in case of people suffering from diabetes. This vitamin takes part in many biochemical reactions which have the influence on glycaemia, among others by controlling the process of gluconeogenesis and maintaining proper level of glucokinase – an enzyme taking part in the synthesis of glycogen. It was proven that biotin increases organism’s sensitivity to insulin and stimulates glucose transformations, thanks to which it strengthens protection against hypoglycemia. 

Proper work of the nervous system
Proper level of biotin in the organism is essential for the proper functioning of the nervous system. This vitamin influences energy transport to working nerve cells, thanks to which it is responsible for well-being, vitality and mental efficiency and its deficiencies appear as, i.a. oversensitivity, depression, anxiety states, sleepiness and apathy.

Summing up, Apollo’s Hegemony Biotin is a dietary supplement effectively complementing biotin deficiencies, especially beneficial for people with lipid disorders and diabetes, decreased concentration and skin problems.

The preparation is recommended in case of observing the symptoms related to biotin deficiency – hair loss, its weaker structure and lack of shine, fragility and brittleness of nails and disorders of their growth, graying, skin exfoliation and inflammations mainly around mouth, eyes and nose. The supplement is also recommended in case of lowering the efficiency of nervous system, worse mood and depression-anxiety symptoms.
