What is biotin?
Biotin used to be referred to as vitamin H and was first discovered as a growth factor in microorganisms. In the early 1940s, they succeeded in isolating biotin from the liver. Biotin is water-soluble and can withstand heat to some extent, although the level of biotin in foods is reduced with heating. We produce biotin in the body through intestinal bacteria and it is absorbed throughout the small intestine.
Biotin is found in much of what we eat, but absorption of biotin may be prevented in those who often eat raw egg whites. This is because egg white contains avidin, which inhibits the absorption of biotin. During times of stress, intense exercise, or dieting, the amount of biotin in your body can also decrease, simply because it is consumed at a higher rate.
