Is Pure Naturals Biotin Vegan?

I

Pure Naturals sells a fairly popular and highly rated biotin supplement.

But is it vegan?

Let’s find out…

This is a pretty simple one: Pure Naturals’ biotin is not suitable for vegans.

A quick look at the ingredients lists reveals why:

Cellulose, gelatin, magnesium stearate, and silica

Gelatin is always derived from animals (their collagen to be more specific).

The good news is that there are plenty of alternatives that are vegan and just as effective. As long as you avoid soft gel supplements you’ll typically avoid gelatin.

If you have trouble swallowing other types of pills there are dissolving tablets and gummy options available as well.

I’ve put together a guide to the best vegan biotin supplements if you’re interested, it contains 4 different options, at least one of which will fit what you’re looking for.
