How do you take biotin capsules? This medication is best taken on an empty stomach 1 hour before or 2 hours after meals. Take with a full glass of water (8 ounces or 240 milliliters) unless your doctor directs you otherwise. If stomach upset occurs, you may take this medication with food.
What is the best way to absorb biotin? To maximize the intake of biotin and for safety reasons, always cook eggs before eating them. Raw egg white contains a protein called dietary avidin, which binds to biotin and makes it harder for the body to absorb it. Cooking separates the biotin from the avidin, helping the digestive tract to absorb the vitamin.
Can we apply biotin capsules on hair? A biotin supplement can help correct a biotin deficiency and restore hair health and growth. No strong evidence supports using biotin supplements or biotin-added hair products to promote hair growth in non-deficient people.
Do You Swallow Biotin Capsules
If you are taking chewable tablets, chew the tablet well and swallow. If you are taking extended-release tablets, swallow them whole. Do not crush or chew extended-release tablets. Doing so can release all of the drug at once, increasing the risk of side effects.
