- Health Notes
BiotinBiotinThis nutrient has been used in connection with the following health goals
- Reliable and relatively consistent scientific data showing a substantial health benefit.
This supplement has been used in connection with the following health conditions:Type 2 DiabetesDose: 9 to 16 mg dailyBiotin may improve glucose levels and reduce pain from diabetic nerve damage.(more)Type 1 DiabetesDose: 16 mg dailyBiotin may improve glucose levels and reduce pain from diabetic nerve damage.(more)Pregnancy and Postpartum SupportDose: Use a prenatal supplement that includes biotinBiotin deficiency may occur in as many as 50% of pregnant women. A prenatal multiple vitamin and mineral formula that contains biotin may help prevent a deficiency.(more)Seborrheic DermatitisDose: Refer to label instructionsBiotin injections either for the infant or the nursing mother may be an effective treatment for cradle cap.(more)Brittle NailsDose: 2.5 mg dailyBiotin has been shown to improve nail firmness and thickness and to reduce splitting in several studies.(more)Type 2 DiabetesDose: 9 to 16 mg dailyBiotin is a B vitamin needed to process glucose. When people with type 2 diabetes were given 9 mg of biotin per day for two months, their fasting glucose levels dropped dramatically.1 Biotin may also reduce pain from diabetic nerve damage.2 Some doctors try 9 to 16 mg of biotin per day for a few weeks to see if blood sugar levels will fall.ReferencesType 1 DiabetesDose: 16 mg dailyBiotin is a B vitamin needed to process glucose. When people with type 1 diabetes were given 16 mg of biotin per day for one week, their fasting glucose levels dropped by 50%.1 Biotin may also reduce pain from diabetic nerve damage (neuropathy).2 Some doctors try 16 mg of biotin for a few weeks to see if blood sugar levels will fall.ReferencesPregnancy and Postpartum SupportDose: Use a prenatal supplement that includes biotin
Biotin deficiency may occur in as many as 50% of pregnant women.1 As biotin deficiency in pregnant animals results in birth defects, it seems reasonable to use a prenatal multiple vitamin and mineral formula that contains biotin.ReferencesSeborrheic DermatitisDose: Refer to label instructions
Preliminary studies have found that injecting either the infant or the nursing mother with biotin may be an effective treatment for cradle cap.1, 2 Studies of oral biotin have yielded mixed results in infants. Older preliminary studies and case reports suggest that 4 mg per day of oral biotin might be sufficient for mild cases of cradle cap, but 10 mg per day was required for more severe cases.3 Two more recent, controlled trials found that oral biotin (4 or 5 mg per day) produced no benefit.4, 5 Thus, the scientific support for using oral biotin to treat cradle cap is weak. The role of biotin in adult seborrheic dermatitis has not been studied.References

Biotin, a B vitamin, is known to strengthen hooves in animals. As a result, Swiss researchers investigated the use of biotin in strengthening brittle fingernails in humans, despite the fact that it remains unclear exactly how biotin affects nail structure. An uncontrolled trial of 2.5 mg biotin per day found improved firmness and hardness in almost all cases after an average treatment time of 5.5 months.1 In a controlled trial using 2.5 mg of biotin per day, women with brittle nails, who had their nail thickness measured before and at six to fifteen months after, found their nail thickness increased by 25%. As a result, splitting of nails was reduced. In an uncontrolled study of people who had been taking biotin for brittle nails in America, 63% showed improvement from taking biotin.2 Although the amount of research on the subject is quite limited and positive effects do not appear in all people, those people having brittle nails may want to consider a trial period of at least several months, using 2.5 mg per day of biotin.References
Biotin, a water-soluble B vitamin, acts as a coenzyme in the metabolism of protein, fats, and carbohydrates.
