on 2017-05-25 Very good biotin
Sports research makes a very good biotin at a reasonable price. The pills are easy to swallow and don't give me indigestion like some other biotin pills do. I took these for three months and definitely had some hair and nail growth from this biotin. But, if you can afford to spend a little more, a much more complete hair loss pills is Propidren Propidren DHT Blocker with Saw Palmetto to Prevent Hair Loss and Stimulate Hair Follicles to Stop Hair Loss and Regrow Hair
- it is a bit pricey but works much better than biotin alone, works better than even many prescription hair loss products I have tried.

This product is amazing!
This product is amazing! The pill is really small and easy to swallow and it has worked great for me! In the pictures you can see my progress in only one month. I would recommend this to anyone. :)

This stuff works!
A little over a month's difference. My hair feels thicker & is visibly longer! I didn't take it consistently. Thumbs up for sure!

I love this stuff
I have been taking these for two months with absolutely incredible results, I even stopped taking them to make sure the results I was seeing was purely from the biotin pills and everything below has been proven to me to be directly from this product.
I started taking Biotin to grow my hair long. While taking it, my hair grows about an inch per month. That's insane! My hair is normally at about .5 inches per month but since I bleached the living crap out of it, it had slowed to almost no growth per month.
My nails are like.. ridiculously thick.. it's actually kind of unreal. I already had pretty decent nails but now you cant even bend them at all. they feel like false nails. I usually have a nail biting problem but I literally can't bite them now.
I have no idea why, but this stuff does to my body what I usually use caffeine to do. I have looked online and there doesn't seem to be much research on this but I have seen very clear signs that my energy level increase is directly due to this product. I started waking up WAY earlier, and needing less sleep each night. I generally run cold and I get cold even when other people are warm but now I run quite warm and I am always the one who doesn't need a coat when everyone else does. I am also just generally more alive, awake, and driven. Like I just had a bunch of caffeine but without the jitters or weird caffeine tummy pains. It's kind of like that feeling you get right after working out a bit, where you're just super charged and ready to take on the world. This was a totally unintended result, and I have no idea whether this is just me or if anyone else has experienced this, but it's kind of changed my life. I started doing a lot more things that I never would have had the energy to do otherwise. I have done some research about this and no one links biotin to energy increase but Biotin does help your body break down food more efficiently and it's also super good for your liver so you're getting more nutrients and less garbage through your day. I also tend to have low blood sugar so this may have helped that a bunch and given me far more energy than I've used to. Either way.. I am super glad I found this stuff.
Okay so when I started taking these I read all about how people got acne, but I wanted to try it anyways because I was desperate for hair growth. I have super acne prone skin so I was very wary, and here's what i did to ease myself into it:
- For the first 2 weeks I had one pill every other day (NOT every day) and I drank a ton of water (as suggested by other amazon reviewers. (I carry one of those camelback water bottles everywhere with me and it makes it super easy to get a bunch of water. If you don't have one buy one now! the kind with the straws.) Result: no difference in acne.
- After two weeks I knocked it up to one pill every day.. continuing to drink a lot of water, which is better for your skin and hair anyways.. so you really should be doing it! Result: Less acne than normal (no acne problems at all!).
- Then a month later I actually started taking this multivitamin alongside this biotin.. I didn't notice this, but the multivitamin had THE SAME dosage of biotin as this stuff.. so I was now taking 10,000mcg per day. Result: Teeny tiny little acne bumps started apprearing on my neck.. they were pretty itchy and I feel like this was the cystic acne that people were talking about. They weren't noticable at all, even my boyfriend couldn't see them, but they itched for about 3 days and then they went away completely. (Note: Once I realized how much biotin I was taking, I went online to check how safe it was and... it's actually totally safe!! There's no negative health effects to taking this much biotin, and the small acne bumps lasting for 3 days was the only side effect I saw.)
I saw someone post that this has a known carcinogen in it; "carogeenan". SUPER WRONG, Carrageenan is NOT a known carcinogen, you can look it up. Not sure why they didn't bother checking the facts first. This compound is in half the food you buy at the grocery store, and they have investigated this compound FULLY and concluded that's it's not linked to cancer.
I'm adding a photo with my progress.. this is 5 full weeks of taking 1 pill a day (with no additional biotin). I definitely see a huge difference in the way my hair feels and looks.

Okay so, I wanted to rewrite this review when I had more time with it. So I'm currently about 3 weeks in, and I've had a good experience thus far. I have blonde hair which means my hair is thin and lots of strands. It hardly grows which is why I wanted to try this product out. I have experienced no break outs or acne of any sort from this product but I do drink a lot of water anyway and I've never had problem with my skin even as a prepubescent teen in school. It's hard to say if I've had any growth yet with my hair because it's only been about 3 weeks, I took a beginning picture and will upload before and after photos here in another few weeks. But I can say for sure my eyebrows have grown and become thicker. Overall this is a great product, small and easy to swallow and an amazing company. When I received my order they gave me another free bottle that's in the mail now.
UPDATED- So I've been using this product for about three months now & it truly does work! My hair is so much thicker which is a miracle because I have natural blonde, thin hair. It's grown inches too!

2 thumbs up!!
Started using this 3 months ago because there is female pattern hair loss in my family & the balding crept up on me. So far there is a big difference, can't wait to see how it will be in a year. Using it along with womens rogaine. You can see in the photo my hairline was becoming square & now it looks more normal.

Be careful you guys.
I'm not here to cast any judgement. I'm just sharing my review on this product. It didn't work for me. After a week of taking it, it breaks my face out so bad, that I had to stop taking it. Both right and left side of my face and in my forehead was filled with pimples. I thought it was pre menstrual symptoms, but my premenstrual acne always come on my forehead. Only like three or four, so it wasn't premenstrual symptoms. Because it was more than 15 pimples all ove my. This product breaks my face out so badly, I didn't even want to go to work. Maybe it works for others, but it definitely didn't work for me. I posted a picture of the spots that are on my face. They are dried up now since I stop taking the softgels, but the spots still remain.

Amazing product for hair growth and health
Great product that helps me with controlling my skin and keeping my hair and nails healthy and growing. Really helps with keeping my nails strong and not breaking and also promotes facial hair growth for anyone looking to get a fuller beard. I would highly recommend this to anyone looking to promote hair growth.
