Comment:
Perhaps I'm just a rare case but I started taking these again once a day for the past two weeks and noticed some annoying and bad side effects. I took these because I was hoping for stronger nails and clearer skin but my side effects have been blemishes, cramps, and no energy. I'll see how I go now that I've stopped with Biotin.

This stuff is Great! I take 2 a day and my nails grow faster and they are thicker. I Love this stuff and my hair grows faster and is not falling out. It almost looks like some of my grey hair is getting color back in it.

I have been taking 5000 mg of Biotin daily for several months and I have noticed my nails are stronger, not splitting or peeling, also, my hair has stopped falling out. This was the main reason I started taking this vitamin supplement. My hair was baby fine, very thin and weak. Now, my hair is thicker, more abundant and the oil has returned to make it shinier and healthier.
