Today we review Now Biotin. These capsules contain enough biotin to help boost protein synthesis, which will help your hair, skin, and nails grow healthier and stronger. This vitamin also helps with your metabolism and immune health!
What’s in Now Biotin?
These capsules contain 5,000 mcg of biotin. Each capsule is also made in a 100% vegan capsule and is also kosher and free of almost all allergens. Unfortunately, the optimal daily dose for this vitamin is 10,000 mcg, so these capsules only provide half of that amount.
How Do You Use Now Biotin?
The recommended daily dose for this supplement is one capsule per day. The dose should be taken with a meal. However, as stated before, by only taking one capsule daily, you will only be getting half of the optimal dose of biotin. It is also not stated if there is a prime time during the day to take this supplement to have the best absorption of the nutrient into your body.
This supplement comes in both a 60 capsule and a 120 capsule bottle. The manufacturer’s suggested retail price for the smaller bottle is $9.99, while the larger bottle retails for $17.99. For the amount of supplements in each bottle, this price is cheaper than some of its competitors, but the company only offers free shipping after $75, and there are no discounts available. With the discounts and free shipping options from other competitors, this may no longer be as cheap as it seems.
Is There a Guarantee?
This company does not offer any kind of money back guarantee on their products. If you decide to request a refund, you can only return new, unopened containers within 60 days to receive a refund, minus any shipping and handling fees. Also, refunds are subject to a 15% restocking charge, so even though they are unopened and unused, you will automatically be losing some of your money.
Also, while this product did have various positive customer reviews, we also found some negative ones to be aware of. One review stated that they received their supplements within 2 months of the expiration date, therefore they were unable to actually use their entire purchase. Others stated that the capsules were much larger than they expected, so they were not as easy to take.
The Conclusion of Our Now Biotin Review
There are a few things we liked about Now Biotin. These capsules are not only vegan and kosher, but they are free of many of the most common allergens. Also, they come in an easy to take, once a day dose.
Unfortunately, there were many things that raised our concerns regarding this supplement. Each capsule only contains half of the best daily dose of biotin, meaning these capsules may not be as effective as others. Also, there are no available discounts listed for this supplement if you buy them direct from the manufacturer. Lastly, the company offers no guarantee and their return policy is filled with stipulations, including the fact that you can only return unopened bottles. For these reasons, we cannot recommend this supplement to help you grow longer, healthier hair, skin, and nails.
