High potency doses of biotin have been reported to favorably influence glucose metabolism in a variety of ways.* Studies show that biotin supports glucose tolerance and normal insulin sensitivity and may also induce enzymes that inhibit release of glucose by the liver into the bloodstream.* Added benefits of biotin on cholesterol and triglyceride metabolism have also been reported in some studies.*

- Protein and Carbohydrate metabolism*
- Synthesis of hormones, fatty acids and cholesterol*
- DNA replication*
- Nervous system function*
