Do you know biotin is great for your hair?
 
I just want to share this great information to all of you. Yes, you read it right. Biotin has positive effect to our hair. Biotin is actually vitamin H which is part of the B Complex vitamins. When taken regularly, biotin helps you achieve a healthy and shiny hair. In addition, biotin helps repair brittle nails and helps you maintain a healthy-looking skin.

just a little fact about biotin:

This supplements when taken daily provides the nutrients necessary for cell growth, fatty acid production and improved metabolic reactions. Biotin is also recognized for promoting blood sugar stability and is an important component of nutritional health. When used daily, Biotin is a key component in maintaining healthy blood sugar and has been linked to cosmetic benefits such as reducing hair loss and repairing brittle nails.*

Biotin Vegetarian Capsules:

- Part of the vitamin B Complex vitamins
- Biotin name is taken from the Greek word "Bios" meaning "life"
- Promotes healthy Hair, Skin and Nails
- Supports proper metabolism
- Promotes healthy blood sugar

Definitely, biotin offers cosmetic benefits to all of us and has a big impact in our overall health.

On my stylist's advice, I have been taking Biotin for many years and think it's a wonderful thing

Great to hear that Pookarina. But do you also know that biotin helps you have a healthy skin and strong nails? I'm taking biotin from Hercules Vitamins and everyday I'm getting great results. Health-wisely speaking, biotin helps me maintain a healthy blood sugar level and boosts my body metabolism. Biotin is definitely an amazing supplement that each one of us must take for us to have a healthy life, both inside and out.

I've just recently started taking biotin consistently and my nails have been growing like crazy. It feels stronger and breaks less too. I haven't taken it long enough to comment on hair growth but I've heard it helps. However, just warning you guys that some people have had breakouts from this... But I haven't at all. Maybe it's because I take it with the b-complex, which I heard helps, but sometimes I take it by itself and I still haven't broken out. If you do get pimples, try to drink lots of water, take it with a b-complex, or take a lower dose.

Living a healthy lifestyle really helps a lot. Biotin can't do it alone. I myself take multivitamins with energizing ribose from (from Hercules Vitamins) and not only I absorb the full nutrients that my body needs but it also keeps my immune system strong. Back to biotin, we all aknow that biotin is vitamin H, part of the B complex family. I think it's really wise to help biotin with b complex vitamins to fully get the benefits of the effects of biotin.

I had a bad reaction to Biotin. Some ppl can tolerate it and unfortunately I am not one of those ppl.

Oh I see. That's why it's really advisable to ALWAYS consult a health professional before taking any supplements.
