Today we review Nature Made Biotin. These softgels claim to have the maximum strength of Biotin for people diagnosed with low levels of this B vitamin. Not only will this help your metabolism break down carbs, proteins, and fats, but biotin helps to keep your hair, skin, and nails looking healthy!
The only main ingredient in this supplement is 5,000 mcg of biotin. While the manufacturer claims this is the maximum dose, we know that the daily dose recommended by doctors and proven through clinical trials is 10,000 mcg. That leaves these softgels with only half of the effective maximum dose.
The recommended daily dose of this supplement is one softgel daily. Each dose should be taken with a meal and a glass of water. For easier digestion, you should drink water before and while taking the softgel. Again, as stated above, by only taking one softgel per day, you will be missing half of the necessary dose of biotin to see optimal results.
Possible Side Effects
It is clearly stated on the packaging that you should not exceed the maximum recommended dose of this product. Also, the manufacturer warns of possible drug interactions when beginning this supplement. This supplement may diminish the absorption of other medications and supplements you are already taking. You should speak with a doctor before beginning this supplement to discuss your risks and see what is best for you.
This supplement comes in both a 50 count bottle and a 120 count bottle, neither of which are available for purchase direct from the company’s website. They do list third party sellers where their products are available. According to their website, the price of the 50 count bottles vary in price from $6.99 to $39.16 and the 120 count bottles range from $12.94 to $24.79. It is strange that the smaller bottle costs more than the larger ones in some locations, which makes it imperative that you do your own research to make sure you receive the best price.
Guarantee & Feedback
The company does offer a money back guarantee, which is unusual for companies that do not sell directly to the consumer. In order to start the refund process, you must fill out their online form or call their customer service telephone line.
The product does not have any reviews on the company website, but did have good reviews on other third party sites. While they do have mostly 5 star reviews, some of the comments stated that while it does work, people’s hair still grew quite slowly.
Our Conclusive Review About Nature Made Biotin
There are a few things we liked about Nature Made Biotin. If you are able to find the best price for this supplement, it is relatively cheap when compared to its competitors. Also, the manufacturer offers a money back guarantee.
Unfortunately, there were still many things that concerned us about this product. The amount of biotin per softgel is only half of the clinically proven optimal dose. Also, this product could affect how well your other medications work. Lastly, many of the reviewers commented that while this product did work well for them, it worked quite slowly. For these reasons, we are not able to recommend this supplement for healthier skin, hair, and nails.
