I have tried everything! garlic in polish, soaking nails in vinegar/H2O, strengthening nail polish and cuticle oil. I was shocked that after 1.5 months my nails did not split. I just took one a day 1,000mcg. Bought them at Walgreens on sale :) Can't remember which brand though.

I started taking biotin because my nails became brittle after menopause. It didn't help my nails much but I started getting frequent compliments on my skin. My facial skin has become much smoother and the blotchiness I've had since I was a child is gone.

I am 64, and have always had thin brittle nails. I have been using biotin for 6 months, and my nails are strong as nails :) Love the English language :) In addition, my thin white hair has thickened!! Love it!!
