Today we review Biotin manufactured by Swanson. Biotin is often referred to as the “beauty nutrient” because of its ability to nourish the skin, nails and hair. Biotin acts as a coenzyme and is part of the B-vitamin complex family. It claims to help metabolize fatty acids and proteins thereby helping to supply the cells in your body with enough energy. If you regularly experience brittle or broken nails, or your hair has lost its shine you may be able to benefit from a biotin supplement. Read our review below for more information.
Each Biotin capsule contains 5000 mcg of Biotin. Other secondary ingredients include rice flour, acacia gum and gelatin. Biotin is usually taken to prevent biotin deficiency that is associated with pregnancy, tube feeding, malnutrition and fast weight loss. People that suffer from hair loss, skin rash, diabetes or thin and brittle nails can also benefit from using biotin. Unfortunately, we could not find any information stating if this product is vegan-friendly or not.
It is recommended that you take 1 dietary capsule per day with water.

Our Conclusive Review About Biotin
We like that this product is relatively affordable and that it offers a balanced dose of biotin per capsule. We also like that you can find it just about anywhere online and that it has a 30-day guarantee policy. However, we are very worried about the multiple negative reviews this product received online. A lot of people claimed that they have returned their product because it didn’t work at all. We are also disappointed that Swanson doesn’t mention if this product is vegan-friendly and they also do not state if any artificial ingredients have been used in the making of this product.
