1. can biotin be overdosed?

Many people wonder if biotin can be overdosed. It is not possible to overdose on foods rich in biotin. Biotin in the form of dietary supplements can also not lead to an excess of biotin. Biotin belongs to the water-soluble vitamins, an excess in nutrients is quite unlikely, because an excess is excreted again via the kidneys.

    2) How can I increase my biotin level?

    Once it has been determined at the doctor's office that your biotin levels are too low, you should increase your biotin levels. This works by changing your diet to foods rich in biotin or by taking supplements. Here, one can choose between biotin capsules and biotin tablets. Both forms are easy to handle and get into the circulation quickly. It is important to carry out another test at the doctor's after the change in order to detect possible changes in the iron value at an early stage.

    3. How can I cover my biotin requirements through food?

    The daily biotin requirement can be well covered by the consumption of biotin-rich foods. Biotin-rich foods are found primarily in plant products, as well as in animal products. These include beef and veal liver, eggs, carrots, oatmeal and sardines.

    The German Nutrition Society (DGE) recommends a daily intake of approx. 30-60 µg of biotin for adults. The daily intake of biotin for an adult corresponds to about 100 g of peanuts. For children, the value is between 15-30 µg. In certain life situations, such as pregnancy, more biotin is needed.

    4. food supplements containing biotin

    If you want to increase a low biotin level with a dietary supplement, you should pay attention to the form of the active ingredient and its origin. Biotin capsules are particularly suitable for increasing the biotin level. They are very well tolerated and are utilized by the body to a high degree. The preparation should also not contain any chemical additives such as microcrystalline cellulose. If you buy a preparation from Germany, you can be sure that the product has also been produced safely and is of high quality.
