Does Biotin Gold™ contain anything other than the active ingredient?
In addition to the active ingredient, each vegetarian capsule of the Biotin Gold™ product contains some non-GMO, gluten-free Rice Concentrate. Because natural extracts can vary from batch to batch in terms of consistency, moisture (or stickiness) and particle size, it is sometimes necessary to add Rice Flour during the manufacturing process to help ensure product integrity without compromising product safety or effectiveness.

Biotin Gold™ is verified free of wheat, peanut, soy, shellfish, egg, and milk by an independent, third-party lab. It is currently pending GMO-free verification by the Non-GMO Project™.
Is Biotin Gold™ suitable for Vegans / Vegetarians?
Biotin Gold™ does not contain any animal-derived ingredients and is, therefore, suitable for both vegans and vegetarians.
Is Biotin Gold safe for long-term use?
Biotin Gold™ should be safe for both short-term and long-term use when taken as directed and under the guidance of a licensed pharmacist or healthcare professional.
Is Biotin suitable for individuals with a medical condition?
Individuals with a known or suspected medical condition should always talk to a licensed medical professional before beginning any form of supplementation. It is never advisable to self-diagnose or self-treat a medical condition.
What are natural food sources of Biotin?
Some natural food sources of Biotin include beef liver, roasted peanuts, chocolate, eggs, dried peas, cauliflower, mushrooms, and lima beans.
Are there any known toxicity issues with Biotin supplementation?
There have been no reported toxic effects even at large doses of Biotin. In fact, although the RDA for Biotin has been set at around 30-35 mcg per day, most people take between 5000 mcg and 10,000 mcg of Biotin in supplement form. However, it is always best to consult with your healthcare provider regarding safe, daily dosages prior to taking the supplement.
What are the side effects, contraindications, and/or drug interactions, if any, associated with Biotin?
Sulfa drugs, Estrogen, and Alcohol consumption may raise Biotin requirements. Prolonged use of anticonvulsant drugs may lead to biotin deficiency, requiring supplementation. Long-term use of antibiotics can affect the balance of the digestive system and reduce or stop the production of biotin by intestinal bacteria, making supplementation from food sources or dietary supplements necessary. As always, please talk to your healthcare provider before supplementing with Biotin if you pregnant, breast-feeding, and/or taking any OTC or prescription medications for a health condition.
