Vitamin of B7, vitamin of H, coferment of R 2936290000
Participates in the synthesis of glucokinase - an enzyme that regulates sugar metabolism.
It is a coenzyme of various enzymes, including transcarboxylases. Participates in the synthesis of purine nucleotides. A source of sulfur, which is involved in collagen synthesis for skin health. With the participation of biotin, reactions of activation and transfer of CO 2 proceed. Raw egg white contains a substance called avidin - biotin antivitamin. This substance binds biotin and prevents its absorption into the blood. When heated, the avidin in the egg white is denatured (irreversible structural breakdown), and therefore the cooked eggs do not interfere with the absorption of biotin. Alcohol impairs the ability to absorb biotin, and therefore chronic alcohol abuse can lead to a biotin deficiency. Oil fats that have been heat treated or exposed to air for a long time, slow down the absorption of biotin. Antibiotics, drugs containing sulfur and saccharin also affect the absorption of biotin.
