You'd have to eat 500 hardboiled eggs to get 5 mg of biotin. (Photo by woodleywonderworks)
So far, there's been no change in my hair and nails after supplementing with 5 mg biotin daily. I think any difference in hair growth would be difficult to spot this soon, but neither nail strength nor nail growth have shown any change either.
My nails have always been quite brittle and short - perhaps in part due to the fact that I used to bite them - so anything that makes them stronger would be most welcome. On the other hand, it makes experiments like this easy, as any positive change would be noticeable.
I think I'll finish the bottle but I'm not expecting much.
