OSTEOPOROSIS CAUSES

What Is Osteoporosis

Bones become weak because of "bone loss." If you are "losing bone," it means you are losing some of the material that makes up your bones, so there is a drop in density, or thickness. The density of bone makes it strong - when the structure thins out and becomes less dense, the bone is more likely to break.

USES FOR MERIBIN

Biotin supplements are used to prevent or treat biotin deficiency.

A lack of biotin is rare. However, if it occurs it may lead to skin rash, loss of hair, high blood levels of cholesterol, and heart problems.

Some conditions may increase your need for biotin.
