Been taking for about 3-4 months and I love it! I am 75 and my nails have been peeling and cracking for the past few years. Now I have to get a manicure so they don't get TOO long. I take 1000mcg a day. May reduce the amount soon.

Comment:
As I've gotten older my hair has naturally thinned a bit. A stylist told me to take biotin. I'm not sure if it's helped that but I was having a horrible time with peeling, fragile nails. That was a new development for me. After I'd been taking the biotin for a couple of months, I noticed that my nails were much stronger and stopped peeling.
