Although the beneficial bacteria in the human intestine can help to produce biotin, the human body mainly needs to supplement it from food, and biotin is mainly absorbed directly from the small intestine, and can also be absorbed through the large intestine because some bacteria in the large intestine can produce biotin and pass through the large intestine. Absorbed, the excess biotin is excreted in urine.
