Why You Need THIS Supplement On a High-Protein Diet
Biotin's Game-Changing Effects Explained by a PhD
If you are eating a high-protein diet, you probably aren’t getting enough biotin.
This is especially true if you are a protein-fueled athlete and find your skin too oily, too itchy, or too red; if your blood sugar is getting out of control; or if you simply feel down in the dumps. And it’s especially true if you find your hands or feet tingling or get subtle sensations of something crawling on your skin.
Alternatively, if you’re pregnant or looking to conceive, this is something you really need to understand.
Nevertheless, most biotin supplements on the market have doses that are actually too high.
In fact, I myself once gave myself several weeks of clumsiness, short-term memory loss, and short temper by taking 10 milligrams per day of biotin.
Most people who supplement with biotin are are taking too much.
Almost everyone else is not getting enough.
Eating a high-protein diet, all the more with the extra stresses of athletic activity or pregnancy, pushes one from the “not enough to be optimal” territory to the “dangerously low” territory. And this isn’t something to put off fixing, because not matching your protein with sufficient biotin will lead to toxic byproducts of branched-chain amino acids that will cause slow and steady neurological decline over time.
And what is the point of taking all these detox supplements, getting lymph drainage massages, and hitting up the sauna to work up a sweat when the high protein-to-biotin ratio of your diet is generating new toxins every time you eat?
In this article you will learn just how much you biotin you need for a given protein intake, and how to get it from food and supplements.
