FRIDAY FAVORITE: Hercules Biotin

Hercules Biotin Vitamin Supplement
Ever since I was young I have always had thin & fine hair.  That’s just the way it is.  Now as I got older and learned about Biotin, the virtuous vitamin promising faster hair growth and reduced hair loss, I made it my mission to find the best of the best on the market.  On this quest It feels like I tried every “miracle supplement” out there. Viviscal, Hairfinity, Maxi Hair, Phyto Phytophanère...you name it I've tried it in attempts to aid my limp locks.  Well I'm here to tell you Hercules Biotin is the best of the best and is a worthy recipient of this week's Friday Favorite.

Now let’s get down to the nitty gritty here for a second.  How does Biotin work?  Well, vitamins basically aim at patching up any nutritional deficits in our diet.  Biotin is considered to be an important part of the B-complex group of vitamins and is necessary for cell growth, the production of fatty acids, as well as the metabolism of fats and amino acids. When used daily this vitamin has been linked to cosmetic benefits such as stronger nails, clearer skin, and faster hair growth.  But not all vitamins are made the same.  The potency of the supplement, the process it goes through to be manufactured, if natural or synthetic compounds are used; all these factors have a big impact on the vitamin’s effectiveness.  All of Hercule’s Vitamins come with a potency guarantee meaning you’re actually getting what you pay for and their supplements are made with only raw ingredients and exhaustively tested by laboratories certified by the (FDA) to confirm that the ingredients listed on the label are actually in there.  Score.

There are two main reasons I love Hercules Biotin.  First, these vitamins actually work.  I have been using these on and off for the past four years and every time I step out and think there’s something bigger and better out there I come back.  I really do notice that my nails are stronger, skin clearer, eyelashes longer, and my hair grows like a weed on this stuff.  Second is this product doesn’t break me out.  When you get into the realm of affecting fatty acid production and all that with biotin this can lead to break outs and I learned that the hard way.  Most of the “hair, skin and nails” supplements I tried broke me out and left my face feeling oily.  (If you don’t believe me read some of the horror stories from reviews on Viviscal and Phyto Phytophanère of individuals badly breaking out from using these pills.)  So if you’re looking to stop hair loss, or simply give your luscious locks a boost this supplement by Hercules Vitamins is for you.  These vitamins can be purchased online and the site always has great deals where the products are buy one get one free with gratis shipping.  (Right now each bottle of Biotin is retailing for $7.99 on the Hercules Vitamins site.)  Each bottle of biotin contains 60 supplements, each capsule containing 5000 mcg of biotin, and instructions encourage to take two capsules a day for optimal results.  This is my take....I would start out with taking two a day for a couple months, but after that you're really just in maintenance phase and can get away with taking one. 

Ok so if you got to the end of this lengthy post you are a rock star.  What can I say I’m loyal and passionate about my Biotin!  I hope this post was helpful to you and I strongly encourage you to forgo generic supplements at the drugstore and check out Hercules Vitamins, their products are such high quality and I’m simply obsessed.  I just know I’m gonna be a doppelganger for Rapunzel in no time. #goals  I hope you all have a wonderful weekend and thanks so much for stopping by Brazen Brunette!!
