Re: Biotin shortage?

This is true, it has been  in short supply for more than 6 months.  I work
for a vitamin/mineral premix co and we have been rationing it for a long
time.  I don't know the  actual reason, but there isn't enough being
produced, which is also leading to higher prices.  Ballpark increase of 40%
in the last 1/2 year.
If I were you I would just shop around, different suppliers will have stock
at different times, depending on when they have received their pure biotin.
We have an excellent relationship with our Biotin supplier (mfg) and so far
we have not been 'out' just cautious.
Good luck.
