Should You Take Collagen And Biotin Together?

When perusing EverBella products, you may notice that my most popular supplements are Complete Collagen Plus and Complete Biotin Plus. If you’re looking for ways to slow skin aging, maintain thick and healthy hair, and grow strong nails, you may wonder which of these two you should choose. 

Both collagen and biotin are crucial for beauty. They play integral parts in the health of your skin, nails, and hair. But that’s just on the outside. On the inside, both of these nutrients offer several health benefits. Understanding these benefits may help you make a more informed decision as to which one of these you should take. 

Or, perhaps in this blog, you’ll learn why you want to be taking BOTH of these together.

Let’s start with collagen.

The Benefits Of Collagen

Collagen is the most abundant protein found in the human body. As such, ensuring you have healthy levels of it at all times is critical for not just the appearance of your skin but the structure and function of several organs. 

As such, when you take a collagen supplement, you can expect a wide range of positive health effects. These include:

✅ Improved skin health – Studies have shown that a good quality collagen supplement supports skin elasticity, locks in moisture for hydrated skin, and promotes a youthful texture. [1]

✅ Healthier hair – Collagen offers many amino acids needed to make keratin, the main protein that makes up your hair. [2]

✅ Stronger nails – One study found that supplementing with collagen every day led to better nail health after 24 weeks, including better growth rates, reduced breakage, and improved appearance. [3]

✅ Healthier gut – Research shows that collagen can support your gut health, mainly through strengthening the gut lining. [4]

✅ Protected joints – Collagen makes up a lot of your joint cartilage, and maintaining healthy levels in the joints can help you retain proper mobility as you age. [5]

✅ Supported muscles and bones – For the same reason that collagen protects your joints, it maintains the integrity, strength, and density of your muscles and bones, which both contain high levels of the protein. [6, 7, 8]

The Benefits Of Biotin

Biotin is one of the B vitamins – vitamin B7 – and is an essential nutrient. It helps keep your skin, hair, eyes, liver, and nervous system healthy. It also converts the food you eat into energy. 

It’s mostly recognized for its beauty effects as it is involved in the production of keratin, a protein that is one of the main components of hair and found in high levels within the skin. [9]

The benefits of taking biotin are mostly related to beauty, including:

✅ Thicker hair – Research shows that those with low levels of biotin tend to lose their hair in high quantities, and supplementing increases growth. [10, 11]

Protected skin – Your skin layers rely on keratin for protection and structural integrity, constantly needing to produce more as the keratin works through the skin layers and ultimately sheds on the outer layer. [12]

Stronger nails – Keratin is also a main component of your nails, which is why studies have shown that biotin can support the thickness and firmness of nails. [13]

Healthier pregnancy – Nearly 50% of pregnant women develop a biotin deficiency, as this vitamin is crucial for fetal development. This is why biotin supplementation for pregnant women is recommended. [14]

Lower blood sugar levels – Research has shown that taking biotin supplements may regulate insulin within the pancreas, stabilizing blood sugar levels. [15]

Collagen And Biotin Together

Individually, collagen and biotin offer you their own unique benefits, but also some similar benefits that complement each other. This is especially true for the health of your skin, nails, and hair. 

I tell most people who are set on choosing one or the other that they should take collagen if they want more focus on skin health and biotin if they’re more concerned about their hair. 

But taking both collagen and biotin together simultaneously is the ultimate combo.

This is especially true for your skin. And it isn’t just me saying this, but the scientific research.

For example, one study showed that combining both further improved skin hydration, elasticity, smoothness, and density. [16]

And another study showed that skin appeared more youthful in those taking both, with researchers noting an improvement in collagen structure within facial skin. [17]

If you want to be serious about turning back the clock on your skin and protecting yourself from signs of aging, it’s key to take two of the highest-quality beauty supplements on the market – Complete Collagen Plus and Complete Biotin Plus.
