Hello I take the vitafusion gummy vitamins. It has 3000 mcg of biotin. Is that too much.

No: Biotin is a water-Soluble B-Vitamin. If you eat more than your body needs it will be excreted in your urine. Taking 3000 mcg of biotin should be safe for most people. Best wishes!

If you take biotin with a multi vitamin is it dangerous?

If you take biotin with a multi vitamin is it dangerous?

None: Both are probably unnecessary at your age unless you have a known deficiency. You should eat a wholesome diet rich with fruits, vegetables, nuts, beans, whole grains and some wild fish like salmon and cod, and get at least 15-30 minutes of sun each day. If you do that, you don't need any extra vitamins.

Is it okay to take biotin, iron and a multi vitamin daily?

Is it okay to take biotin, iron and a multi vitamin daily?

Yes but why iron?: This is safe in terms of not having excessive doses of any but few men need to take iron- iron is a pro-oxidant. Other than young children, I only advise iron supplements to menstruating women. Generally men can get adequate iron from diet and excess iron intake increases risk of heart disease and cancer so unless you know you are deficient in iron I would not supplement with it!

Listen to your body: Every one is different. Many factors can influence acne breakouts. Biotin can aggravate acne in some people. Pantothenic acid can help some people with acne prone skin. Start with lowering stress, a good night sleep, eating healthy fresh vegetables and fruit, and getting good exercise through the day.
