Brain and Cognitive Function
The human brain is dependent on a constant supply of glucose for energy. Under normal circumstances the brain exclusively uses glucose as a fuel source, and unlike other tissues brain cells cannot use fat for energy. Biotin has a key role in producing glucose form other substrates, and so contributes to the proper functioning of the brain. Deficiency of biotin has been associated with depression, lethargy, and hallucinations.
