                    Purchased these to repair my nails after artificial/ acrylic damage to my nails that made them into paper thin, weak, cracking nails. My nails have always been weak, short and never grow long on their own :(. Acrylic/ uv gel nails made them so thin it hurt everytime I touched anything. They were so far down it really affected my work. AND OMG thank Goodness I found these!!!!!!!!

                    One month and my nails were not only back to normal but longer than usual! My hair also grew very fast which is weird because my hair barely grows. From a little past my shoulders to my mid back! So happy.

                    Also the capsuels seemed a little big for me at first but I got used it. I'd take one every morning with food but it wouldn't uset my stomach if I didn't take with food.

                    Buying two bottles now, one for my Mom and one for me! :D

                      Have an increasing in size bold spot in the back of my head. Was told Biotin would be good. So I started taking about two weeks ago. I trust Salgar products and hope it'll work in time. It's too soon to know the effects, but have a faith it will do help.

                        I wanted something to help my thin, non growing hair and peeling nails. Since taking biotin my hair grows so fast I have to color it (for the gray) a lot more often and I have to clip my nails.

                            Had a lot of stress and people very close to me pass away and noticed that I was seeing patches of hair missing on my scalp and that my already fine hair was thinning and straw-like feel. I read the reviews and decided to give this Biotin a try.
                            After 1 month I clearly have new growth on the sides of my hair line and the patches have started growing in! My hair is thicker and feels much better. No more straw hair.
                            I also have been using a clarifying shampoo once a month as my hair dresser said this could cause protein billed up.
                            1 month and have decided to keep going, must be very disciplined in taking every morning. Hair and skin have never looked this good!

                              This product does work... I had purchase biotin for my grandaughter because she had a habit of bitting her nails. Well all I can say is that the habit no longer exists and she is very proud of her beautiful nails.

                                  I started taking biotin upon a recommendation by my sister. I was complaining about thinning hair. I started out by taking 1 capsule a day. Approx. 1 1/2 months later and I really didn't see results. Than I started taking it twice a day, once in the morning after breakfast & once in the evening after dinner. I have to tell you it worked. It took about another month or so, but it did the job. Now I have hair growing, feels thicker and my hair stopped falling out. It is such a relief to see my hair coming back. Definitely recommend biotin!!!

                                      I take one each morning with food. I have used one bottle of 100 capsules and I have hair growing back on both sides and across the front. The new hair is about 1 inch long and sticks up from the rest of my hair so I have no problem seeing new growth. I am reordering today.

                                            Have always loved Solgar products. The quantity, strenghth and price of this product can't be beat. My dermatologist suggested I try biotin. It's helped stop my thinning hair immensely. Highly recommended.

                                            BTW...I never shop anywhere else for supplements except at The Vitamin Shoppe.

                                                My dermatologist recommended this product for my genetically thinning hair. I was loosing hair by the handful every day when I shampooed. After having started with one capsule per day, I worked my way up to three. The result is phenomenal!!! Am planning to try the Biotin shampoo as well.

                                                    Under enormous stress due to my husband's illness, I noticed my hair falling out at alarming rates. I prefer the natural approach to health issues, and I knew that Biotin is not only great for hair loss, but also skin health (blotchy skin and rosacea flare-ups are exacerbated by stress), so I added Biotin to my daily supplement regimen. I have noticed new hair growth and minimal hair loss within one month. My rosacea flare ups are milder too.

                                                            This was recommended by my dermatologist for my hair because I was having issues with thinning. The thinning stopped almost immediately and my hair is even healthier than before. I have always taken vitamins and such, but I was lacking this important vitamin in my daily diet.

                                                            I'm currently trying Solgar Biotin 1000 µg = 1 mg, one pill each morning. One week after starting with the following biotin product I realized and saw that there's a product with 4 times as much biotin. My question is, is there any major difference with the 1000 µg and 5000 µg in aspect to hair growth?

                                                            Is this product okay to take if you have a thyroid condition?
                                                            Michele-Ann D on Jun 14, 2014
                                                            Best Answer: Well, I have hypothyroidism and have had no problems. But it's best if you ask your doctor.

                                                            My dermatologist knows that I have a thyroid condition, yet she suggested I take the supplement.

                                                            You could also search the Internet using search terms "drug interactions with Biotin."

                                                            I certainly hope this helped.

                                                            Kindest regards.

                                                            Best Answer: I had no adverse effects from this product. It did seem to work to enhance the strength of hair and nails.

                                                            How much biotin should a person take?
                                                            A Vitamin Shoppe customer on Nov 22, 2014
                                                            Best Answer: The appropriate dose of biotin depends on several factors such as the user’s age, health, and several other conditions. At this time there is not enough scientific information to determine an appropriate range of doses for biotin. Keep in mind that natural products are not always necessarily safe and dosages can be important. Be sure to follow relevant directions on product labels and consult your pharmacist or physician or other healthcare professional before using.

                                                            There is no recommended dietary allowance (RDA) established for biotin. The adequate intakes (AI) for biotin are 7 mcg for infants 0-12 months, 8 mcg for children 1-3 years, 12 mcg for children 4-8 years, 20 mcg for children 9-13 years, 25 mcg for adolescents 14-18 years, 30 mcg for adults over 18 years and pregnant women, and 35 mcg for breast-feeding women.

                                                            My wife & I are taking 10000 mcg/ day because we were still having issues w/ hair loss & brittle, cracking nails

                                                            Best Answer: Yes it does nails also my hair is growing like a weed! It was brittle from all the blow drying, perms, and hair dyes. I didn't think I would ever have long hair again! Take it every day!

                                                            Best Answer: I started taking this because of hair loss. It took about two months of using Biotin to notice my hair was not falling out any longer.

                                                            Can this capsule be easily opened and added to water for bariatric surgery patients?

                                                            Does it cause hair growth on the head only or does do so on other areas (thinking of the face)? Thanks!

                                                            Best Answer: I have not seen any growth in my face. At my age I get the occassional hair that has to be tweezerd, but no spurts of growth. I would recommend the product but cannot vouch for women with darker hair who have thicker hair, mine is fine. Give it a try.

                                                            Did you experience hair growth elsewhere on your body or just on your scalp?

                                                            Best Answer: And I forgot to add that Biotin did not aid in the growth of hair on my scalp. It only helped to stop further hair loss.
