Health Notes

Biotin

Biotin
This nutrient has been used in connection with the following health goals
  • Reliable and relatively consistent scientific data showing a substantial health benefit.
  • Contradictory, insufficient, or preliminary studies suggesting a health benefit or minimal health benefit.
  • For an herb, supported by traditional use but minimal or no scientific evidence. For a supplement, little scientific support.

Our proprietary "Star-Rating" system was developed to help you easily understand the amount of scientific support behind each supplement in relation to a specific health condition. While there is no way to predict whether a vitamin, mineral, or herb will successfully treat or prevent associated health conditions, our unique ratings tell you how well these supplements are understood by the medical community, and whether studies have found them to be effective for other people.

For over a decade, our team has combed through thousands of research articles published in reputable journals. To help you make educated decisions, and to better understand controversial or confusing supplements, our medical experts have digested the science into these three easy-to-follow ratings. We hope this provides you with a helpful resource to make informed decisions towards your health and well-being.

This supplement has been used in connection with the following health conditions:

Type 2 Diabetes
Dose: 9 to 16 mg daily
Biotin may improve glucose levels and reduce pain from diabetic nerve damage.(more)
Type 1 Diabetes
Dose: 16 mg daily
Biotin may improve glucose levels and reduce pain from diabetic nerve damage.(more)
Pregnancy and Postpartum Support
Dose: Use a prenatal supplement that includes biotin
Biotin 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 Dermatitis
Dose: Refer to label instructions
Biotin injections either for the infant or the nursing mother may be an effective treatment for cradle cap.(more)
Pregnancy and Postpartum Support
Dose: Use a prenatal supplement that includes biotin
Biotin 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 Dermatitis
Dose: Refer to label instructions
Biotin injections either for the infant or the nursing mother may be an effective treatment for cradle cap.(more)
Brittle Nails
Dose: 2.5 mg daily
Biotin has been shown to improve nail firmness and thickness and to reduce splitting in several studies.(more)
Type 2 Diabetes
Dose: 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.

Pregnancy and Postpartum Support
Dose: 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.

Seborrheic Dermatitis
Dose: 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.

Brittle Nails
Dose: 2.5 mg daily

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.
