Biotin for beautiful hair, skin and nails…unless you are me.

22 Jul

Biotin, also known as vitamin H or coenzyme R, is a water-soluble B-vitamin (vitamin B7).

Biotin is necessary for cell growth, the production of fatty acids, and the metabolism of fats and amino acids.  It may also be helpful in maintaining a steady blood sugar level. Biotin is often recommended as a dietary supplement for strengthening hair and nails, though scientific data supporting this usage are weak.

Anna has been taking 5,000mcg of Biotin a day and she looks amazing.  So I was sold.  I bought a bottle of 1,000 mcg Biotin but it turns out it gives me cystic acne.  Gross!


I guess this can happen to some people.  But don’t let me stop you from trying it for yourself. Most people don’t have the sad acne reaction and end up with long flowing hair, glowing skin and strong nails.

Do you take Biotin supplements? What have your results been like?
