Quick Overview

    Product Description

    Biotin is a water-soluble B vitamin that can have a beneficial effect on a number of conditions ranging from brittle nails to diabetes. In a clinical trial, 45 patients with brittle nails received oral supplementation of 2.5 mg biotin daily for 1.5-7 months. Ninety-one percent showed “definite
    improvement,” exhibiting firmer, harder nails after an average of two months of treatment.

    Biotin in high doses, such as are present in Thorne’s Biotin-8, improves abnormal glucose metabolism by stimulating glucose-induced insulin secretion in pancreatic beta cells and by accelerating glycolysis in the liver. Biotin also enhances muscle insulin sensitivity by increasing guanylate
    cyclase activity. In addition to blood sugar metabolism, human studies suggest poor biotin status can have an adverse effect on plasma lipid levels.
