Biotin is a kind of vitamin, also known as vitamin H, vitamin B7, coenzyme R, etc. Biotin is a water-soluble vitamin, relatively stable to heat, the general cooking loss is not large. Biotin is the coenzyme of many carboxylases in the body and plays an important role in the metabolic process of carbohydrates, fats, proteins, and nucleic acids. Under normal circumstances, balanced dietary adults generally do not lack biotin. The anti-biotin protein in the raw egg white can affect the absorption of biotin. After the egg white is cooked, the anti-biotin protein is destroyed, and the biotin can be reused and absorbed. Biotin (vitamin H) refers to the parallel ring with urea and thiophene combined with a valeric acid side chain. Biotin belongs to the B vitamins and are water-soluble vitamin. Biotin is essential for the synthesis of vitamin C and is indispensable to the normal metabolism of fat and protein. Biotin is also a coenzyme of various carboxylases, acting as CO2 carriers in carboxylase reactions.
Our (Lyphar Biotech) Biotin (CAS:58-85-5) is 1%, 2% and 98% White crystalline powder, it is mainly used in skincare and hair care products, as well as the Medical field.
Main food source
Biotin is widely found in natural foods, relatively rich in cereals, nuts, egg yolks, yeast, animal guts, legumes, and certain vegetables. The content of biotin varies greatly in different foods and is affected by the season and processing mode. The biotin bound to protein in grain is not easy to degrade, and its utilization rate may be lower than that of animal food.
Biotin is the photoreceptor material in the optic sink cells and can maintain the integrity and perfection of the epithelial tissue structure. Biotin can also enhance the body’s immune response and resistance and maintain normal growth and development.
Clinically, biotin is used to treat diseases of arteriosclerosis, stroke, abnormal lipid metabolism, hypertension, coronary heart disease, and blood circulation disorders.
In cosmetics, it can improve the circulation speed of blood in the skin blood vessels, in the concentration of 0.0% range, 0.1%, easily mixed with the oil in the formula. It can be used in skin care cream, exercise medicine, foot pain relief cream, shaving beard, and shampoo.
The biotin of food exists mainly in free or protein-bound forms. Biotin bound to the protein forms the biocytostitin under the action of the intestinal proteases, and then it acts by the intestinal biotinidase to release the free biotin. The major site of biotin absorption is found proximal to the small intestine. At low concentrations, it is actively absorbed by carrier transport; at high concentrations. It is absorbed in a simple diffusion form. The absorbed biotin is circulated through the portal vein and transported to the liver and kidney for storage, and other cells also contain biotin, but in less amount. Human intestinal bacteria can synthesize biotin from dipolydiic acid to nonallelic acid, but as a direct source of human biotin is insufficient. Biotin in the human body is mainly excreted through the urine, and it is also excreted in the milk, but the amount is very small.

Safety precautions (use taboo)
With high doses of pantothenic acid (pantothenic acid, vitamin B5), a competitive effect may hinder biotin absorption.
Taking antibiotics or sulfonamides (Sulfonamideantibacterial) can destroy beneficial bacteria in the gut, resulting in a decline in biotin synthesis rates.
Long-term use of antiepileptic drugs and antispasticity agents (anticonvulsants) will reduce the absorption and reabsorption of biotin in the intestinal tract and renal tubules.
