How bad is biotin ?

How bad is biotin ?

Post  niff1250 on Sun Oct 21, 2018 12:06 am

I have been using biotin for almost one month.

I used to think it's just for making hair grow faster, helping women losing hair after childbirth but not for MPB.

Nothing could be further fromthe truth. I do have MPB (diffuse adn vertex balding) and it looks like the magic vitamin. My hairloss almost stopped and new hair are growing. This is really impressive.

But the biotin I'm taking is pretty potent and high dosage (10,000mcg). It looks a lot and can cause potential sides, it seems, I'm not sure.
Are results sustainable in the long run with biotin ? Do I have to keep for the rest of my life ? How bad is it for health ?

Here is the biotin I'm taking :

Normally we make plenty of biotin in the intestines....however, that may no longer be the case anymore because of
pervasive herbicides such as glyphosate (Round-up) via Monsanto (now Bayer). This herbicide is ubiquitous, even found in organic foods, breast milk, just about everything has it now.

Acetyl-CoA carboxylase (ACC) is a biotin-dependent enzyme that is the target of several classes of herbicides.

Here's is what biotin does for us:

The basic explanation: Biotin is important for energy production. For example, several enzymes need it to function properly.

These enzymes are involved in carbohydrate, fat and protein metabolism. They initiate critical steps in the metabolic processes of these nutrients.

Biotin plays a role in:

Gluconeogenesis: This metabolic pathway enables glucose production from sources other than carbs, such as amino acids. Biotin-containing enzymes help initiate this process.

Fatty acid synthesis: Biotin assists enzymes that activate reactions important for the production of fatty acids.
The breakdown of amino acids: Biotin-containing enzymes are involved in the metabolism of several important amino acids, including leucine.

Summary: Biotin assists in energy production. It supports a number of enzymes involved in the metabolism of carbs, fats, and protein.

More technical explanation:

Biotin is an essential metabolite in all known free-living organisms. It functions as a CO2 carrier in carboxylation and decarboxylation reactions catalyzed by a small family of enzymes, the biotin carboxylases. Biotin carboxylases participate in central metabolic processes such as gluconeogenesis, lipogenesis, amino acid metabolism, and energy transduction. Bacteria, plants, and some fungi can synthesize biotin de novo from a pimeloyl-CoA
precursor, but other organisms acquire biotin from their diet or environment. Regardless of how biotin is acquired, a dedicated ATP-dependent biotin ligase, or holocarboxylase synthetase (HCS), is required to catalyze the covalent attachment of biotin to a specific lysine in the target carboxylase.
