There are 5 mg of the active ingredient biotin in this product. Biotin is meant to help support your skin, amino acid metabolism, and promote normal immune function. It is a water-soluble vitamin necessary for normal growth and body function. The inactive ingredients are rice flour, cellulose magnesium stearate, and silica. It was produced in a GMP facility that also processes ingredients containing wheat, gluten, soy, milk, egg, fish, shellfish, or tree nuts.
It is recommended to take 1 capsule a day with a meal. It it only intended for adults. You should consult a physician before use if you are pregnant, nursing, taking medication, or have a medical condition. Keep this product out of the reach of children.
What is the Cost?
Now Biotin is sold directly from the manufacturer for $9.99 for a bottle of 60 capsules. They also sell a bottle of 120 capsules for $17.99. This is a very affordable supplement since you only need to take 1 capsule a day and you can purchase a 2 or 3 month supply.
The manufacturer gives their customers 60 days to return the product if they are not satisfied with it but only if it was directly purchased from them. A 15% restocking fee may be applied to some orders. Returns made after 120 days will not be accepted. The product should be new and unopened. If the bottle is empty or less than half full, you will not be credited unless there were reasonable circumstances. This guarantee is kind of all over the place. They first say you need to return the product withing 60 days to get a full refund and then say no returns will be accepted beyond 120 days. They also say only some orders will be charged a 15% restocking fee and then mention that an empty or mostly used bottle may be able to be returned under “reasonable circumstances”, which is extremely vague.
Our Final Review of Now Biotin
There are a couple of positives about Now Biotin. It is a very affordable product. It seems to have a pretty fair return policy allowing you to try the product a little and then return it, but then on the other hand the return policy really doesn’t guarantee the customer anything. It doesn’t mention their confidence in their product’s effectiveness. It also creates a lot of grey area regarding what qualifies for a full refund, which will allow them to give you any reason why your return won’t be accepted. This product is also processed in a facility that also processes many allergens which isn’t safe for most people. We feel you can find a safer and more effective product elsewhere.
