Default Biotin

Is this a good to use or is it a scam?

Hi, its recommended to be taken by most surgeons post HT, so I would probably go with the opinion of these doctors and say it is useful.

I have been taking it for nearly 7 months post FUE, can't be 100% sure whether its made the difference but I went by the recommendation of the doctor.

I've been taking it for a couple months,I can notice my nails growing faster so that to me means it's working as far as hair that's something I'm looking at each day so to notice a change is tough but I do believe it has helped the hair in someway..you can get a years supply of biotin for like $10 on Amazon def worth a try

Biotin is a water-soluble B vitamin also known as vitamin B7, vitamin H, or coenzyme R. It plays an important role in cell growth and the metabolism of fats and amino acids, which make up protein
Advantages of using Biotin
1.Healthy hair: Biotin has been proven to make hair grow faster, thicker, and stronger for those with biotin deficiencies. You can actually see the results in a month or two. There’s also evidence showing that biotin can improve the health of your hair even if you’re not deficient.
2.Strong nails: It makes your nails grow faster and stronger as well.
3.Stretch marks removal: Biotin makes your skin healthier and helps get rid of stretch marks.

Disadvantages of using Biotin
1.Acne and Breakouts: Biotin may cause acne and breakouts. The results on your skin may be terrible, but the following precautions will reduce the risk of this happening.

Biotin is far from scam. It is the number one vitamin that helps your hair growth. I have actually heard little proof for any other minerals or vitamins that are supposed to help hair.

I take it as well and I like to believe that it works. My hair/nails do grow really fast. Also, it's super cheap, so I figure why not....

I take a couple other vitamins as well and my opinion with vitamins is that it's really hard to know how much they're actually helping you. I have no idea if my hair would look the same if I weren't taking it, and there's no way to actually know that, either.

Some people swear by vitamins, and some people think they're a ripoff. Personally, I believe the hype. So if you're of the belief that vitamins are helpful, healthy supplements to our bodies, then go for it. You've got nothing to lose, and Biotin is definitely one of the frontrunners.
