In this review of Nature’s Bounty 5000 mcg Biotin, the product is examined to see it the formulation is a proprietary blend that aims to support a number of various systems in the body, namely, digestion, energy production, skin health, and hair health. The manufacturer claims that this preservative and artificial-free product may help to prevent hair loss and also support strong nail growth.
Each soft gel serving contains:
This is actually Vitamin B, when concentrated in a supplement, having a deficiency of this Vitamin is known to have negative effects on the body such as the weakening and thinning of fingernails, alopecia (hair loss), dermatitis and even neurological symptoms such as depression. So, therefore having this as a dietary supplement may aid the health of nails, hair, and skin.
- Soybean Oil
- Vegetable Glycerin
- Yellow Beeswax
- Titanium Dioxide Color
The manufacturer’s website, as well as the all labeling on the product itself, fails to warn those suffering from soy allergen that soybean oil is a risk should they take the product. Soybean oil can moisturize the skin, while Vegetable Glycerin may soothe skin irritations, Yellow Beeswax is found to reduce swelling and Titanium Dioxide Color is purely an artificial coloring agent.
Administer one soft gel per day, together with meals. Should you find that your body reacts to the supplement with symptoms such as hair loss, digestive problems or fatigue, contact your doctor immediately. A doctor should be contacted before using this product if you are nursing, pregnant, those that are suffering any medical conditions or taking any medication.
The price for a 150 soft gel containing bottle varies from $11.07 to $23.99 available for online purchase. The manufacturer has an option on their website that brings up a map of all possible retailers of their products, however, when this tab is opened, the page states that no retailers have the product in stock.
After thorough research, no information was found regarding a money-back guarantee or a returns policy, which leaves us concerned as to whether or not the manufacturer believes in their product. Should the manufacturer be confident in their formulation, they would at least give the customer a 365-day 100% money-back guarantee.
Nature’s Bounty Biotin Review – Conclusion
We liked that Nature’s Bounty offers a reasonably affordable product and that the formulation may be effective as it is a concentrated active ingredient. But although the product might be free of artificial flavors, it is, however, not free from additives. The Nutritional Value Label on the product reads that Titanium Dioxide Color and Gelatin are listed as ingredients. Gelatin is sourced from animals which makes means that Nature’s Bounty Biotin will not be an option for vegetarians or vegans. Veggie capsules have shown to aid absorption and lower the risk of toxicity. Titanium Dioxide is an artificial coloring agent which may decrease the overall effectiveness of the supplement. Both of these products may alter the results of supplementing this product. Due to the lack of guarantee and presence of Gelatin as well as Titanium Dioxide, we are unable from suggesting that anyone invests in this product.
