Does biotin 5000 mcg make you gain weight?

Does biotin 5000 mcg make you gain weight?

No: There have been similar and occasional complaints such as yours however though not born out by science. Your dose is huge--recommended is only 30-100 mcg daily. Biotin, also vitamin h or b7, helps convert food to energy ; builds hair ; nails. Found in almonds, eggs, liver, pecans, sardines ; whole grains. Though biotin is nontoxic, try getting it in foods instead ; see what your weight does! ...Read more

Is 7500 mcg to much biotin to tske everyday?

Is 7500 mcg to much biotin to tske everyday?

Probably: Did you know that biotin is a "B complex vitamin" but it is also known as Vitamin H? Confusing I know, but beside the point. The adequate adult dose of biotin is 30 mcg per day, but up to 2500mcg per day for hair/nail health. I wouldn't recommend more than that. Too much biotin will cause slower release of insulin, skin rashes, lower vitamin C and B6 levels and high blood sugar levels. ...Read more

It depends: The recommended daily intake for biotin is 30 mcg but most people don't need to take any as it is fairly easy to get that amount via your diet. However. Some people benefit from larger amounts for conditions such as diabetes and brittle nails. Doses up to 16, 000 mcg/day have been used to treat diabetes and have been found to be safe. See http://lpi.

I just bought biotin 300 mcg including 100 tablets. But I heard it reccomended taking 3000 mcg a day which means 10 a day for me. Is that dangerous?

I just bought biotin 300 mcg including 100 tablets. But I heard it reccomended taking 3000 mcg a day which means 10 a day for me. Is that dangerous?

Very safe: Biotin is not known to be toxic. Doses of to 5000 mcg/day were well-tolerated for 2 years in a research study and up to 15, 000 mcg/day in shorter studies. While that sounds like a lot, 3000 mcg= 3 mg and many vitamins are safe in much higher amounts. See http://lpi. Oregonstate. Edu/infocenter/vitamins/biotin/ for more info. ...Read more

Can I take 10, 000 mcg of biotin? Is it safe? Are there any side effects?

Can I take 10, 000 mcg of biotin? Is it safe? Are there any side effects?

Seems very unnatural: Not a natural thing to do. Biotin deficiency is rare, but can occur in persons with genetic mutations, on long-term antibiotics or anti-convulsants, or who eat a lot of raw egg whites. There is no good evidence that this easily available, over-the-counter supplement is the magic potion for anything. Biotin is safe to take, but 10000 mcg per day is over 60 times the usual dose, so is not advisable. ...Read more

Is it ok for my daughter to take 10, 000 mcg biotin chews once a day? She's 12 years old.

Is it ok for my daughter to take 10, 000 mcg biotin chews once a day? She's 12 years old.

Why?: Why do you feel that she needs extra biotin beyond what she's getting in her nutrition? What does her Family Doc or Pediatrician say about this? Lack of biotin is rare such that there is no RDA or RNI. Normal daily recommended intake is 30mcg for 7-10yo and just 30-100mcg for adolescents & adults. Granted this amount is not intended to be optimal 4 all, but biotin isn't something typically measure ...Read more

I just increased my Biotin intake today from 5000 mcg to 10, 000 mcg. What can I expect from this big increase?

I just increased my Biotin intake today from 5000 mcg to 10, 000 mcg. What can I expect from this big increase?

Enough, Already!: You can expect more biotin in your urine and not much else I bet you're taking it for hair loss. Well, good luck.. Won't hurt, but you'll have to see if it works. But you really don't need that much. The recommended daily dose is around 30 or go mcg, so to think 10, 000 or even 5, 000 mcg will help seems like overkill. More is not necessarily better. How about 500 mcg? No? OK, 1, 000. No? OK 1500 mcg. Enough! ...Read more

IS 10, 000 mcg biotin too much? I want to grow my hair.

It's not too much: The recommended dose is generally up to 5000 mcg, but 10, 000 shouldn't be a problem. Remember, not everyone responds to Biotin. If that fails after 6 months or so, Consumers Reports recommends an alternate proprietary product sold by Whole Body Research. No product can guarantee results. Good luck ...Read more
