Many of us are told that we’re stuck with what we’ve got. If baldness runs in the family, get ready. If you’ve always had brittle nails, get used to them. There’s something to that of course, because we do spend our lives in our bodies and it is important that we learn to accept the parts of us that aren’t going to change.

But what about the parts that can change? Sometimes, it’s not only a matter of genetics but also a matter of how you treat yourself and if you’re willing to take the extra step in working towards what you want.

One such way we might take control is by taking biotin supplements. Biotin strengthens and thickens hair, in addition to promoting healthier skin and nails. What’s not to like? Biotin is sold as a supplement in grocery stores and pharmacies, and many people claim that they actually do find that they’re able to significantly change the hair, skin, and nails they were born with by taking it daily.

But you don’t have to take our word for it. Here’s one supplement review by Dr. Neda:
