Thorne Research Biotin 8 helps maintain blood sugar levels as well as improving the skin, hair, and nails.
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.
Suggested Use: Take 1 capsule one to two times daily or as recommended by a health-care practitioner.
