5 Best Biotin Supplements
Last updated on August 20, 2012
There’s a reason why we gave biotin the #1 spot in our 10 Best Vitamins for Hair Regrowth article. Biotin is essential for the health of your hair and a deficiency is often linked to hair loss. Many people find that their hair begins to regrow and become stronger after supplementing with biotin, often after just a few weeks. Nails may also become stronger and less brittle.
Here are the 5 best biotin supplements according to Amazon reviewers to help you decide which brand and dosage is right for you.
1. Elon Matrix 5,000 – Vitamin for Hair 60 tablets
The best rated biotin supplement on Amazon is Elon Matrix 5,000 – Vitamin for Hair. It contains 5000 mcg of biotin and the label claims to promote hair growth and hair quality in 6 months. Reviewers said their hair looked “healthier and fuller,” was “easier to manage”, and that both their hair and nails and got stronger after taking these.
I personally would not use this product because it contains titanium dioxide, an ingredient that I prefer not to consume. However, because this supplement is so highly recommended by reviewers on Amazon who say that it really works to regrow hair, I am not going to edit it off the list – decide for yourself whether the benefits of these tablets are worth any concerns you may (or may not) have over the titanium dioxide they contain.
2. Natrol Biotin, Maximum Strength
Number two on the list, Natrol Biotin 10,000 mcg, Maximum Strength, is a much more natural option. It is a very high dose of biotin at 10,000 mcg. The only ingredients are biotin and calcium.
Reviews said it “is actually working,” “my hair is growing in,” “my hair feels thicker and fuller,” and it “has helped my nails.”
3. Swanson Biotin
Third on the list is Swanson Biotin 5mg. This one is the most affordable of the group.
Reviewers said that it “works great,” nails and hair “grow super fast,” and it was “truly amazing” to see the results. People said their hair and nails started to grow in stronger after a few weeks to a few months.
4. NOW Foods Biotin 5000 mcg
Next on the list is NOW Foods Biotin 5000mcg, another affordable option.
Reviewers said their nails stopped splitting and peeling, eyelashes and eyebrows thickened, and their skin cleared. People said, “this stuff is amazing,” “works like a miracle,” “easy to swallow,” and “shedding much less hair.”
