Proponents of biotin supplements claim that boosting your biotin intake can help with the following conditions:acne,brittle nails,diabetes,eczema,hair loss,mild depression,skin rash in infants.But I do not take the biotin.It seems that it also speed up metabolism and—in turn—promote weight loss.

Im taking 10,000mcg of biotin, (2 5000mcg pills), 4000 mg MSM, and 1500mg of garlic daily for my hair. I instantly saw a difference in my nails, and a good side effect of the MSM is that all the scars i have on my body from breast implants, gettng my tubes tied, and 2 c sections, are flattening and trying to go away a little! That alone is enough for me, whether it works for my hair or not. I want to add B complex and bee pollen to this daily cocktail.

I saw a spurt within the first 2 weeks after I started taking Biotin.
I take three 5,000 mcg pills a day, and my hair grows FAST. I also take a BComplex and I drink orange juice or take liquid vitamin C.

Yes, you can get breakouts from Biotin but you can manage it easily by drinking lots of water and by taking a B vitamin.

Thanks for this info, Flw!

I will take a B-Complex and vitamin C (will add this today) with my Biotin.

I have been taking it a little over a week and my nails are growinggg!! They have been paper thin and hardly growing without flaking and shredding off instantly. And they are the longest they have been in some years right now. My hair is about a centimeter from BSL and I don't flat iron anymore so its' a little hard to map small hair growth on my hair. I guess I'll measure it in another 2 or 3 weeks. I guess I was nauseous recently but I didn't even think it could have been the biotin. Maybe. Haven't had any particular side effects tho other than a little energy. I take it with fish oil.
