How much biotin do you take on a daily basis?
I started taking 5000 mcgs per day. Is this too much?
I don't think so. I take this amount as well.
I take 5000mcg as well, you should be okay
Hmm.. what does mcg stand for?
Never seen that before...
I'm taking 1500 mg of MSM
not sure what mcg stands for. that's what my bottle says.
I'm going to look it up, LOL, sounds metric but I've never come across it, and now it's going to bother me.
OK, mcg is the improper abbreviation of microgram, which is properly written as ug.
Which means if you're taking 5000mcg, that's 5mg.
So I'm taking a heap of MSM... 1500mg... DAMN
I take 10,000 mcgs... from Freeda.
i started off taking 6,000mcg and my face broke out in kind of a rash. It went away as soon as I stopped but just a warning. But my nails did grow fast and strong within a week
Honey, what are the results from taking 10,000 mcgs. Is your hair growing faster or getting thicker?
Thanks for researching that for me.
Is there a limit to how much I should take?
I take 2 5000 mcgs of Puritin's Prides super Biotin.
I take 5000 mcg of biotin along with my other vitamins and I do not get breakouts. I do not drink as much water as I should. I drink maybe 1 or 2 glasses a day...If that much to be honest and my hair is growing fast. Now, don't get me wrong water IS the key...it's just that I have a hard time drinking water and I'm in the process of making myself drink more but if I drink alot of water at work...I'm constantly going to the bathroom every 20 minutes and my boss office is right behind me so she sees me constantly getting up. I try to drink 1 16oz of bottle water at work and them drink the rest that is required at home...that should be cool...but I honestly hate water
To be honest, my nails grow superfast when I'm taking them. As far as my hair goes, I am always doing so many things to encourage growth that I cannot isolate the biotin. I am sure there is a positive contribution though.
Now I didnt notice thicker stronger hair when I started msm. eta: this was when I first started doing things for hair growth so it was easier to tell...
I noticed faster hair growth when I was Surging and doing 40 minutes of cardio activity 4 days a week.
Sorry I know you didnt ask me all that ...
Did you see quick results?
Water is a struggle for me also in the winter months. I usually get in 64 oz. a day, but I really want to increase this. Try to drink a bottle when you get up. This will help to increase your intake. You can also get propel water and other things to add to it.
Just an idea.
I need to step my Biotin game up...I'm only taking 2 600mcg GNC tablets so 1200mcg in all. Yall takin almost 5 times as much as me. I just couldnt afford the 2500mcg when I got them (broke college student). I dont think its too much if all these people are takin that or more.
right, right, right, I can drink the hell out of some propel water so I will rack up on some but at work when I was trying to drink water regularly, I was drinking 16 oz bottle water every 30 minutes or so and that had me running to the little girls room every 20 minutes but I'm going to drink a bottle when I get up in the morning, as you suggested. Thanks
I started off taking 5000 mcg, but I was inconsistent. Now I take 2 1000mcg every morning.
Thanks for answering my ? honey
I take 5 mg (5000 mcg) biotin, 1 a day. I take the vitamin shoppe brand. It's only $4.19 for 120 capsules right now. After taking it for about 1.5 months, my hair growth took off.
This sounds good. started taking 5mg January 4th. Prayerfully, I'll see results by March. I have the GNC brand. They're 2500 mcg's each and come 120 per bottle, for $2 and change. I'll try the Vitamin Shoppe Brand next time.
$2!!! I just went there Saturday and the 2500 mcg was like $17 so i got the 600 mcg for $6.99...I need to go back!
I just ordered 5000 mcg of Biotin.from Puritans Pride.. Some other fine haired ladies on the board take this doseage, and states it helps thicken the strands and promote faster growing. Their hair is gorgeous.I will take them about 3 mos. and watch for the changes in my hair also
I know this T-up has gotten me more growth than I normally get, but I'm not sure if the Nioxxin is the main culprit. My hair is definately comming in thicker and my nail need to be cut like every 2 wks.
that's how much i take...hopefully i'll start seeing some results really soon...
I'm going to start taking biotin (Puritan's Pride) because of you ladies! I hope all goes well.
I take 2 5000 mcg pills a day. I haven't experienced any problems.
They have two different kinds of biotin. Look for the one in the blue/gray bottle.
Have you experienced any growth?
