Let’s go back to the intro. Remember how important it is to consider safety and efficacy when deciding to take two nutritional or bioactive supplements together? Well, biotin and collagen go on both fronts.
âCollagen and biotin are both safe and well-tolerated cosmeceutical bioactives that support healthy hair, skin and nails,â said Ferira. âBut they have their own unique and individual mechanisms for doing this structurally and functionally, hence the reasonable potential for synergy in combining them. Foods and supplements containing collagen and biotin provide key nutrients or building blocks for our health. body. Collagen provides macronutrients. âproteins â nutrition and essential building blocks of amino acids. Biotin provides an essential water-soluble vitamin B (B7), which acts as a versatile cofactor in a variety of bodily functions. “*
Research shows it too. While biotin has not been studied as well on its own, there is a decent amount of clinical research studying the two ingredients together. For example, this study shows that taking both has a positive impact on skin hydration, elasticity, smoothness and density. * Another clinical intervention found improved collagen structure in the skin. facial via objective microscopy results, as well as positive subjective results for skin appearance (elasticity, wrinkles and texture) on hands, neck, legs, stomach and dÃ©colletÃ©. *
