What is a Biotin deficiency?
Biotin is a water soluble vitamin. This means it dissolves in the water inside the body and cannot be stored. Biotin is available in small amounts in some foods but pregnant women, people that don’t eat a well-balanced diet, consume alcohol or smoke are at risk of developing this deficiency. Symptoms of a biotin deficiency are thinning hair, red rashes, conjunctivitis, seizures, skin infections, brittle nails and neurological problems, such as depression, lethargy, hallucinations, and paresthesias (pins and needles) in the extremities.
Will Biotin tablets help my hair grow?
Absolutely! Biotin is essential for healthy hair. Biotin tablets can help grow stronger and healthier hair, nails and skin. It is responsible for improving the keratin structure of one’s hair and also helps retain hair lustre and thickness. Biotin prevents skin cells from degenerating, thereby, keeps hair follicles in place. The result is voluminous, shiny and thick hair. If you are suffering from patchy beard or slow beard growth, then biotin will help with that as well. No surprise that Biotin is also known as the best hair vitamin supplement.

Taking more biotin tablets will not help in growing more hair. Ingesting too much biotin can lead to problems like skin rashes, digestive upset, problems with insulin release and kidney problems. Therefore, take the recommended or prescribed amount only. Our 30 mcg is the required daily intake of Biotin as recommended by FSSAI and the body does not need more than this amount of biotin if there is a deficiency.
Biotin Gummies Vs Biotin Capsules?
There have been a lot of hair vitamin gummies which have been launched in India, why we do not suggest them is because of the sugar content which is added to make the gummies taste sweet. Even if 2 grams of sugar is added to each gummy, there is 180 grams of sugar in 90 gummies which is equivalent to consuming 42 teaspoons of sugar. Our Biotin vitamin is 100% sugar free and comes with Zinc which is also not available in gummies as it is a trace mineral and is vital for hair growth.
