What is Swanson Ultra Time Release Biotin?

Biotin is a vitamin-like nutrient, which belongs to a category of vitamins known as the B-complex. Where this gets confusing is that it is often also referred to as vitamin H. Like so many of its nutritive compatriots in the B-complex, it is actually a fairly recent discovery and so understanding just how it works has taken years of research.

First discovered in 1927, Biotin took 40 more years until, in 1967, it was finally established as a vitamin. Again, like so many other B vitamins, it is also an essential nutrient on account of the fact that, as humans, we cannot synthesise it internally, we have to get it from our diet.

Biotin is normally found in

  • cooked eggs, especially egg yolk
  • brewer's yeast
  • nuts (peanuts, almonds, pecans, walnuts)
  • sardines
  • soybeans, whole grains, bananas and mushrooms.

You would imagine that getting plentiful supply would be easy. However, unfortunately, Biotin shares one more trait with its B-complex family, it is water soluble. That means, while it will pass through your body readily and easily, it cannot be stored in your fat like other nutrients.

That's where Swanson Ultra Time Release Biotin comes in. Because it is encased in slow release enteric capsules, you only need to take one tablet each day and your body will enjoy all the benefits of Biotin over the course of the next 24 hours.

What is Swanson Ultra Time Release Biotin used for?

Biotin works in a number of ways but perhaps the best way to describe it is by another one of its common names, ‘the beauty vitamin'. So called because of its ability to strengthen, replenish and revitalise your hair, nails and skin. Biotin has long been held in high regard by the cosmetic industry.

Much like every B vitamin, Biotin's principle role in the body is to help metabolise food into energy. This is important not just to keep that pep in your step all day long but also because as we metabolise carbohydrates, fats and amino acids, we create the foundations of protein.

Biotin is also considered vital to anyone who is pregnant, as it plays a very important role in embryonic development.

  • Hair and Nail strength - May help improve thin, splitting hair and nails. As well as potentially improving thickness and lustre.
  • Embryonic development - It is regarded as being essential that anyone who is pregnant gets a proper supply of Biotin. Without it, babies can suffer from growth problems both in the womb and following birth.
  • Diabetes - There is preliminary research which suggests that combining Biotin with Chromium could improve sugar control in people with type II diabetes.
