Unless you have discussed this with a physician, and have a deficiency, why would you want to?

Nih advises : appropriate dose of biotin depends on several factors: user’s age, health, et al.
Not enough scientific info now to determine appropriate range of doses. Natural products are not always safe & dosages can be important. Follow directions on product labels & consult healthcare pro b4 use. See comment:.

There is no recommended dietary allowance (RDA) established for biotin. The adequate intakes (AI) for biotin are 7 mcg for infants 0-12 months, 8 mcg for children 1-3 years, 12 mcg for children 4-8 years, 20 mcg for children 9-13 years, 25 mcg for adolescents 14-18 years, 30 mcg for adults over 18 years and pregnant women, and 35 mcg for breast-feeding women.
