Biotin is a water-soluble B vitamin that can have a beneficial effect on a number of structures and functions in the body. In a clinical trial, 45 patients with brittle fingernails 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 in a higher amount, such as Is present in Thorne's Biotin-8, supports glucose metabolism by stimulating glucose-induced insulin secretion in pancreatic beta cells and by accelerating glucose metabolism in the liver. Biotin also enhances muscle insulin sensitivity by increasing uptake of glucose by the muscle cells.

Take 1 capsule one to two times daily or as recommended by a health-care practitioner.

POTENTIAL INTERFERENCE WITH LAB RESULTS
Consumption of most daily multivitamins (30-60mcg biotin) poses NO risk to lab results.  However, daily consumption of 5mg Biotin or more (greater than 160 fold of the 30 mcg daily recommended intake) may cause inaccurate results in many immunoassays.  These include, but are not limited to, thyroid function tests, cardiac and tumor markers, serology tests and serum allergy IgE tests.
 
Although high doses of biotin may interfere with laboratory tests, biotin is quickly cleared from the body in most cases.  For patients taking 5mg of biotin daily, blood level of biotin will return to within normal limits for laboratory testing within 3.5 hours of intake.  
 
Biotin (Vitamin B7) is commonly found in over-the-counter multi-vitamins and supplements for hair, nails and skin improvement.
 
Laboratories recommend that supplements containing more than 5mg biotin should not be taken 8 hours prior to any lab tests.  Click here to see the list of lab tests that can potentially be affected by Biotin consumption.
