The following is our review of Swanson Biotin. It is a dietary supplement that is supposed to help you grow strong and healthy hair and nails while also keeping your skin looking radiant and youthful. Biotin is considered “the beauty nutrient”. Biotin is a key cofactor of enzymes involved in fatty acid metabolism. For that reason it should also enhance the uptake of energy to your cells which should improve your metabolism.

What’s in Swanson Biotin?
The only main ingredient in this supplement is 5000 mcg of biotin. Other similar product offer twice that amount of biotin. With such a low daily dose of biotin, you may not see the results that you were hoping for. This product is not suitable for vegans and vegetarians.
How Do You Use Swanson Biotin?
It is recommended to take one capsule a day with a full glass of water. Since each capsule contains only 5000mcg, it may not be enough to provide you with the full benefits of a biotin supplement. You should consult your healthcare practitioner before using this product if you are pregnant, nursing, taking any medications or have any medical condition. Discontinue use and consult your healthcare practitioner if any adverse reactions occur. Keep out of reach of children.
Swanson Biotin can be purchased directly from the manufacturer’s website for $1.46 for a bottle of 30 capsules. It is currently on sale and is usually sold for $3.09. Even thou this product is very cheap, it makes us wonder if it’s cheap in its quality as well.
Is There a Guarantee?
It does say on the website that if you are not satisfied for any reason with your purchase, you will receive a full refund. There are no other details provided which really doesn’t give the customer much confidence in this products effectiveness.
The Conclusion of Our Swanson Biotin Review
There are a couple of positive things about Swanson Biotin. This product is extremely affordable since it costs only $2.09 for 30 capsules. The manufacturer’s website offers 10% off and free shipping if you spend over $50 when signing up for recurring orders. There were a few things that were causes for concern as well. There were no other details regarding a guarantee or return policy. This sows that the manufacturer doesn’t have much confidence in their product’s effectiveness. It also doesn’t give the customer much confidence or a risk-free buying experience. This product also contains only 500mcg of biotin which is much lower than its competing products. This makes us question its effectiveness as well. To get free shipping, you will need to buy a lot of this product. The fact that it is so cheap makes us question if there is actually anything in the capsule or if you are just paying for a placebo. We feel you are better off looking for a similar product elsewhere.
