B group vitamins act as coenzymes on different metabolic pathways and, in many biochemical reactions multiple B-group vitamins are involved at the same time. Their presence is fundamental for the normal functioning of the organism.
Biotin is a coenzyme essential for gluconeogenesis, lipogenesis and the elongation of essential fatty acids. It is important for the nomal functioning of the reproductive and nervous systems and of the thyroid and adrenal glands.
Trials show that all animals respond to supplementary Biotin which suggests that endogenous Biotin supply is sub-optimal. Biotin supplementation in dairy cows (2 mg/h/day) has been demonstrated to significantly improve milk yield.
Biotin reduces foot disorders in poultry and builds stronger hooves in pigs and ruminants.
