Biotin-8 - Thorne
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.* High-dose biotin, such as the 8 mg in 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.
