Ah, got back from vacation and about a week and a half of digests awaited my
perusal. I'm responding to stuff from last week (sorry).
re: oyster sauce. This is really a misnomer as this brown sauce doesn't
contain oysters. I think it's always veggie. Someone please let me know if
Also, Efrat quoted from a book (I don't know what book that was) about hair
and nutrition. This particular book referred to Biotin as Vitamin H.
Biotin is a B VITAMIN, so I don't know where this H stuff is coming from.
Biotin is expensive, and therefore you will see it in diproportionately low
% to the other Bs in cheap supplements. Higher quality B complexes should
have the Bs more balanced (more Biotin = more expensive supplement). The %
of the RDI for Bs that are in the supplement should not vary more than 500%
between each other. Poor quality supplements will have something like 1500%
of the RDI for an inexpensive B, and 10% of the RDI for Biotin. Put that
back on the shelf!! (:
