I use biotin vitamin 5mg & I take one a day. I use it for having heathly hair & growth. How long will I start seeing difference?

Won't help unless...: Hard to say- maybe never! Biotin deficiency can cause hair problems but if you are not deficient it may not help you. Many vitamins are needed for healthy hair, including b3, b5, b6, B12 ; a, c, d ; e. Zinc ; silica are also important, as are omega 3 and 6 essential fatty acids. And vitamins are never a substitute for a healthy diet.

If I'm taking biotin, iron, calcium & acidillophus vitamins at the same time, is it effective & are there certain times to take each?

If I'm taking biotin, iron, calcium & acidillophus vitamins at the same time, is it effective & are there certain times to take each?

OK together but...: Minerals are best absorbed on an empty stomach as adequate stomach acid helps & our stomachs have the most acid when empty. However, stomach acid kills acidophilus, so it's far better to take it after a meal (for some strange reason many probiotic labels say take on empty stomach- they're wrong!). Biotin can be taken any time. Taking vit c with iron improves absorption. Consider vit. D in winter. ...Read more
