Issue faced by customers using the product

  • The most frequent problem customers have faced is acne outbreak after taking the supplement. People with no acne also got acne and ones with existing acne had severe breakout. Some buyers mentioned that they were able to solve the issue by reducing the dosage of the supplement for example taking a capsule once in 2 days.

  • A few users mentioned that they feel excessive thirst after taking the supplement. They also started feeling urge to urinate much more frequently with the supplement.

While the dosage of biotin in this supplement seem to be very high but as it is water soluble vitamin it is not accumulated in body (just flushed out). Thus Biotin is generally considered safe even at very high levels.

Most users who bought Natrol Biotin seem to be satisfied with it. Even the ones who had acne outbreaks had improvement in their hair!  Overall, based on reputation of the company and positive customer feedback we recommend this product to people looking for biotin supplements especially for hair and nail related issues.
