Biotin Hair & Nail Support
"Stress, sleep deprivation and hormonal imbalance are the largest drivers of hair loss, and these underlying issues must be addressed first. At the same time, it can be linked to biotin deficiencies, so I also recommend considering supplementing biotin if nothing else is working. This product contains pure biotin, unlike many of the sugary gummies out there, which do more harm than good. Remember that the hair cycle is 3 months long, so it may take up to 3 months to reap the benefits of your efforts today." - Jiying
Thorne Biotin-8 | 60 capsules
- Supports healthy skin, hair and nails*
- Biotin-8 offers a high concentration of biotin, a B vitamin that promotes fingernail strength and supports skin, hair, and nerve health, as well as healthy blood sugar metabolism.*
Suggested use: Take 1 capsule one to two times daily or as recommended by your health professional.
Biotin-8 provides a high amount of biotin (also sometimes called vitamin B7) per capsule. Biotin's benefit for fingernail strength was demonstrated in a clinical trial, where 45 patients with brittle nails received oral supplementation of 2.5 mg biotin for 1.5-7 months. Ninety-one percent showed "definite improvement," exhibiting firmer, harder fingernails after an average of two months of supplementation.* Biotin also supports healthy skin, hair, and nerve function.* Biotin in a higher amount, like in Thorne's Biotin-8, promotes glucose metabolism by stimulating glucose-induced insulin secretion in pancreatic beta cells and by accelerating glucose metabolism in the liver.* Similarly, biotin can enhance muscle insulin sensitivity by increasing the uptake of glucose by muscle cells.*
WARNING: Biotin supplementation can interfere with certain lab tests. Consult your health-care professional prior to having your blood drawn.
