The following review is for a product called Now Foods Biotin Veg Capsules. It is a dietary supplement that is specially designed to support the metabolism of amino acids and for promoting normal immune function. It is also designed to promote a healthy immune system and to enhance the synthesis of some proteins.
This product contains 5000 mcg of biotin, which is the main ingredient.
Biotin is responsible for the breakdown of fatty acids and amino acids. It also helps in energy production and improving the immune system, which then leads to a healthy skin, nails and hair. We have noticed that the daily intake of the biotin in this product is 16.666% (833.3 mcg), which is much higher than the suggested allowance of 30 to 35 mcg per day for an adult. This is concerning as biotin can have some side effects on some individuals.
Inactive ingredients: Rice Flour, Silica, Cellulose and Vegetable Magnesium Stearate.
The recommended dose is one capsule taken daily with a meal.
You can purchase this product online for $9.99 from the manufacturer’s website, and for $6.09 to $7.00 for a 5000 mcg bottle from online retailers.
The manufacturer states that returns are only granted to customers who purchased this product through their website, and not from other retailers. New unopened products can be returned to the manufacturer within 60 days. Empty bottles or less than half full will not be refunded unless there are rational conditions. This is not very clear because the manufacturer does not state that bottles that are more than half full can be returned for a refund. A customer would need to seek for clarification from the manufacturer in order to understand the return policy, or the money-back guarantee in other words.
Conclusion – Now Foods Biotin Veg Capsules
Now Foods Biotin Veg Capsules has a potential to be beneficial for improving one’s immune system, metabolism of amino acids and for improving healthy skin, hair and nails. We like that this product is not manufactured in a facility that contains soy, milk, wheat, egg, shellfish, tree nuts and gluten, because this makes it suitable for people who are allergic or are intolerant to these ingredients. The price is affordable for even those that do not have much money. However, this could be a disadvantage as low prices are normally associated with low quality. The amount of biotin per daily serving is more than a suggested allowance of 30 to 35 mcg for an adult. This is a concern because some individuals may experience side effects from taking too much biotin. We are also concerned about the money-back guarantee. It is not clear, and we are uncertain about the protection of the customer. One last thing that concerns us are some of the critical reviews where some customers state that the product did not bring any change to the hair and nails, and the one where they say they found out that the product is not real biotin. We recommend that you rather look for a product that has safe amounts of biotin, one that has clear information on money-back guarantee, and one with positive reviews.
