Biotin 250 Dietary Supplement 20 Tabs

  is a form of vitamin B, present in many foods and available as a supplement and helps to maintain Hair, Skin and Nails

  • Biotin works by breaking down food into sugar that your body can use for energy.
  • Biotin is important for healthy skin and nails, and it also keeps your eyes, liver, and nervous system working properly.
  • During pregnancy, biotin is important for normal fetal development.
  • Biotin is not stored in the body. Because of this, you can become low on biotin if you don't get enough in your diet.
  • Although biotin deficiency is rare, it can develop during pregnancy or in people who have poor nutrition or experience rapid weight loss.
  • Symptoms of biotin deficiency include hair loss, dry skin, a scaly rash around the eyes or mouth, dry eyes, fatigue, and depression.
  • Many people take biotin supplements in hopes of treating hair loss, cradle cap in infants, and brittle nails.
  • Some people also take biotin supplements to treat diabetes and nerve pain associated with diabetes, although there is not much evidence to support this type of use.
  • Some research also suggests that a deficiency in nutrients that include biotin could contribute to the development of type 2 diabetes.
  • Two 2012 studies found that biotin improved the blood sugar and insulin levels of people with type 2 diabetes when they took it along with chromium supplements.
  • The researchers concluded that taking biotin supplements may be beneficial for both people with diabetes and those who are obese.

Biotin for Hair

Biotin is a popular supplement for hair, skin, and fingernails, though there is little evidence to suggest that taking biotin supplements can stop hair loss or stimulate hair or nail growth. 

Similarly, using biotin shampoo or other hair products is unlikely to produce any benefit.

There is some evidence that taking biotin supplements with other medications may help control hair loss that's associated with childhood alopecia. 

Biotin Warnings

Always check with your doctor before taking any supplement. Some conditions and medications can cause low levels of biotin.

Tell your doctor if you are:

  • On dialysis
  • Smoke cigarettes
  • Eat two or more raw egg whites daily
  • Take medications for seizures
  • Have been on a long-term course of antibiotics
  • Biotin is a safe vitamin that is unlikely to cause side effects.

Nonetheless, before taking biotin supplements, tell your doctor if you are pregnant, may become pregnant, or are breastfeeding.

Do not give biotin to a child without talking to your doctor first.

Also, ask your doctor if biotin might interact with any other medications you take.

Biotin Side Effects

Biotin is a safe and nontoxic vitamin. It has not been associated with any serious side effects, even in large doses.

The FDA reports that biotin is safe and well tolerated when taken by mouth in recommended doses.

Pregnancy and Biotin

Biotin is likely safe if you are pregnant or breastfeeding.

Nonetheless, you should always let your doctor know about any supplements you are taking if you are pregnant, breastfeeding, or may become pregnant.

Always check with your doctor before giving biotin to a child.

Biotin Drug Interactions

Whether any medications interfere with the way biotin works is unclear.

There are no known interactions between biotin and herbal medicines or other supplements.

Nonetheless, always talk to your doctor before using any new drug or supplement.

There are some drugs that can lower biotin levels in your body. These include:

  • Antibiotics taken for a long time
  • Anti-seizure medications such as carbamazepine, phenobarbital, phenytoin, and primidone.
  • Other Biotin Interactions
  • Smoking may lower biotin levels.

Raw egg whites can prevent the body from absorbing biotin. Eating two or more raw egg whites every day for more than a few months could cause biotin deficiency.

Biotin Overdose

Biotin is usually safe, even in larger-than-recommended doses.

You can still experience an allergic reaction to inactive ingredients in any supplement, including biotin.

Missed Dose of Biotin

Take biotin only as prescribed by your doctor or as directed on the label of the supplement you are using.

If you miss a dose of biotin, take the missed dose as soon as you remember.

If it's almost time for your next dose, skip the missed dose. Don't double your dose to make up for the missed dose.
