Biotin, (Vitamin B7)

Biotin is a water-soluble vitamin, sometimes referred to as vitamin B7, vitamin H, or R factor. This vitamin naturally occurs in yeast, liver, egg yolk, nuts, lentils and other foods. In the human body, biotin serves as a cofactor of the carboxylase enzyme. Its deficiency is manifested by dermatitis, conjunctivitis, and abnormal activities in the central nervous system. According to the WHO, the recommended daily intake of biotin for a healthy adult is 30 µg per day.

It has been shown that the daily consumption of 22.5 µg of biotin contributes to normal energy-yielding metabolism, normal functioning of the nervous system, normal macronutrient metabolism and normal psychological function. Biotin further contributes to the maintenance of normal hair, normal mucous membranes and normal skin.

With the daily consumption of 5 servings of Mana Powder or Mana Drink, your daily intake is 55 µg.

Enjoy Mana as part of your varied and balanced diet and healthy lifestyle. Mana is suitable for all healthy adults.
