When it comes to hair and nails, I am pretty lucky in that my nails and hair both grow quickly – good genes definitely helps. I have never taken a Biotin supplement before Aviva (see my review here) and have heard of the benefits they offer, but really didn’t need much help in that department, so I dismissed the claims and just went ahead with my normal routines. Even after two months of taking Aviva, I still didn’t notice much change in the length and growth of my hair, so I just assumed that I was getting the necessary vitamins that it didn’t make a difference. Recently I have had the opportunity to test out Eu Natural’s Biotin 5000 MCG Hair, Skin & Nails and here are my thoughts and my experience on the product as well as a little background on it.
Eu Natural offers their Biotin supplement for $24.99 (currently on sale through their Amazon storefront for $19.95). You will receive 120 vegetarian capsules, enough to last you four months if taken according to the instructions provided – one capsule each day with food. The capsules are actually easy to swallow and not as big as other supplements I have taken in the past (like my daily vitamins or Turmeric Supplement) and they don’t have much of an after taste which I like. What I enjoy is that they do not have a funky smell like some supplements tend to have, which is a plus because that way it is easier for me to swallow.

A product that is made of vegetable capsules and contains zero fillers means that you are getting a great supplement for your money. Taken accordingly you should be able to see results in as little as 2 weeks, which is a shorter time frame than most “hair growth” supplements on the market. After using this product for about 2 months, I didn’t notice hair growth, anything additional than what my hair normally grows – however, I did notice that my nails grew faster than they had previously. I have cut my nails down super short at least 4 times in the last 2 months and noticed that my nails grew back very quickly. While my hair didn’t have any visible growth, I did notice that areas where I had patchy spots like near the temples of my head where I had small receding did fill in a little and is not as visible as before. But again – I didn’t notice anything with regards to actual length in my hair, though everyone is different and your experience with this product could be very different from mine.
My hair did get stronger with use which is a great deal to me… since having children (especially after the birth of my twins), my hair shed a lot and it has been hard to get it back to normal. While my hair is not necessarily back to what it was when I was in my teens, I do notice the added strength. Also – with the added growth of my nails, it also means that trimming them more often is important to keep them from ripping. Sometimes people don’t realize that they are actually weakening their hair or nails by allowing them to go without trims or manicures. So, even with the growth and strength from the product, without a hair trim or a nail trim or manicure, you may think the product is not working because the original damage that was there previously continues up your hair shaft or in your nails – into the nail bed, and therefore you are not seeing results. I have my “tips for growing healthy and long hair” video and blog post coming up soon that will touch base a little more on those areas soon.
Overall I’m impressed with this Biotin supplement. After reading a ton of reviews on other products similar as well as price points, the price of this product is pretty reasonable for the amount of product you are receiving. If you are looking for a little help with your hair, skin and nails – I would surely check out this particular brand and product and see if it is right for you. I do have a few notations for you… make sure you consume a good amount of water when taking your capsule and while I didn’t notice any adverse reactions with my skin or any benefits in general – I did get a pimple here and there. I have been told by my doctor that it could be the Biotin supplement as any supplement including Biotin could cause something similar. While it didn’t cause me acne or a bad break out – I did get one or two pimples now and then through the course of the treatment. And, last but not least – this post is my opinion, experience and results after taking this product and I am in no way a doctor or physician that can and is providing medical advice. I seen my doctor prior to taking this pill and suggest you do so too.
