Lights, camera, ACTON: We find our sports hero adding multiple egg whites to a blender. The egg whites are raw like his brute masculinity. He chugs this concoction and prepares for the game. As he walks onto the field, we zoom in to see the ferocity in his eyes and, eew! They’re all red and inflamed and leaking fluid.
Our hero, in his fervor to seize the Eye of the Tiger, now has symptoms of BIOTIN DEFICIENCY because a protein a protein in raw egg whites grabs onto Biotin and doesn’t let go. Look up the definition for “avid”, that’s where Avidin gets its name. The Avidin-Biotin bond is the strongest bond of its kind in nature!
So how many egg whites does it take? Does this “DIY Biotin Deficiency” happen with cooked egg whites? What else happens when Avidin grabs Biotin? For those answers, my friends, you’re going to want to get a copy of my book – “Are You a Monster or a Rock Star: A Guide to Energy Drinks- How They Work, Why They Work, How to Use Them Safely” available as e-book, paperback, and hardcover from Amazon and wherever books are sold.
STAY TUNED every Monday (and sometimes Tuesday) for more book excerpts and the science behind energy drink ingredients as we continue our page-by-page exploration through the Energy Drink Guide.
