do not purchase!!

Comments about Spring Valley Biotin 1000 mcg:

I did not enjoy taking this one bit! This was my first biotin that I ever took. I was taking it so that my nails and my hair could grow a little faster since my hair and nails take awhile to grow. It was literally the worst experience I have ever had with taking a vitamin! Such a horrible experience. To begin, please know and note that this biotin isn't a softgel, it's a rather larger pill coated with an awful taste. You're supposed to take them three times a day, which was hard to do due to the taste and the size of the pill. I managed to choke on the pill multiple ties and multiple days. I tried swallowing them with water, soda, juice, applesauce, everything. I could not avoid that awful taste!! I didn't notice any growth whatsoever, so I finally ended my bottle (which took awhile!!) and went with another brand. Be cautious taking biotin, it can cause you to break out due to your body's chemistry and the biotin together!

Best Biotin Pill!

By 

from USA

Comments about Spring Valley Biotin 1000 mcg:

The Spring Valley Biotin is probably the best biotin pill because it really does give you everything it promises. I loved that my nails started to grow faster and stronger within two weeks and my skin also appeared much clearer within a month of using it. These were my main reasons for buying it along with the promise of healthier hair. I believe because its harder to see differences in hair growth unless its drastic, I did not see much difference in my hair until a couple of weeks when I measured my hair growth. I would take two of these pills in the morning and another two pills later on in the evening. What I loved about this was the fact that the pills are fairly small and their soft gels which made them very easy to swallow. Most times I would take these pills after eating my breakfast and I would drink a lot of water afterwards to comfort my stomach. Overall, these biotin pills are probably the best that I've tried because they work effectively and provide me with all the benefits I wanted for a healthier body and better skin.

Only saw a very slight benefit

By 

from Lincoln, NE

Comments about Spring Valley Biotin 1000 mcg:

I tried this brand of Biotin about 2 years after giving birth to my son because my hair was in bad shape after he was born. I lost a lot of the thickness and shine that my hair had previously. I had read that Biotin was supposed to be an easy, inexpensive fix. I also liked the idea that taking a small, safe pill like this could make my nails and skin nicer as well. It was reasonably priced, but after using it I don't think that it was worth the money. I took one pill daily until the bottle was gone, not seeing much change each day. I kept thinking that maybe it would take awhile so religiously took this Biotin pill every single day. I did not experience any side effects, but I also did not really experience any real benefits, either. My skin seemed the same to me, my hair did not seem to have any additional fullness nor shine either. I may have noticed a slight improvement in my fingernails, I honestly can't say for sure, but they could have possibly grown faster than usual. I didn't take any photos or measurements or anything. So, all in all, I'd say that it's not strong enough for what I needed, and not a very effective use of my money.

Worth a try

Comments about Spring Valley Biotin 1000 mcg:

I heard about biotin from a friend who was taking it. After hearing the positive things she had to say about it I did some research on the web first. I read multiple reviews that said it did wonders for your nails and hair. I was skeptical but I thought it was worth trying it out. I started it off slowly because I wasn't sure how I would respond to it and didn't want to risk getting sick. I started taking one thousand milligrams everyday for the first two weeks. After that, I doubled the dosage. After a month I noticed a definite change in my nails. I usually have very fragile nails that break all of the time. Now they're much stronger and don't break nearly as easily. My hair improvement followed soon after. I used to perm and dye my hair a lot. It even fell out once due to all of the chemicals. Ever since then I've had trouble growing my hair out. Within the first two months my hair grew about two inches which might not sound like a lot but it is for me.

Hair so long and so shiny.

By 

from USA

Comments about Spring Valley Biotin 1000 mcg:

This vitamin has been a god sent to my hair and nails. I bleach my hair about every couple of months and it has made my hair still looks like its natural. I am also a college softball pitcher, so holding the ball certain ways makes my nails break off. But taking this, makes them grow fast. I can file my nails down on Monday and by Saturday it looks like I did nothing to them. It says on the label that it is for skin to but I really do not see much of a difference. I am not sure if it is supposed to clear up your acne or just make you skin have a glow but that I do not see an improvement on.

Don't see a change yet and its been a month

By 

from USA

Comments about Spring Valley Biotin 1000 mcg:

I read reviews online about the biotin and thought I would try it out since I am losing hair as I lose weight. My dr said it wont help and that I would basically be wasting my money. I think she was correct. I've been taking the highest dose for a month now and I don't notice my hair or nails growing any faster, losing any less or anything others claim it has done for them. And my skin hasn't changed for the better, I still get the same amount of blemishes as I did before. I use really good hair care products and skin care products to also help in these areas to eliminate breakage and breakouts. I read many good reviews for biotin and had high hopes, I was really hoping it would work but it hasn't. What has worked for me in the past was the rogain for women. Maybe I'll go back to that. At least the biotin wasn't expensive. To each their own but it didn't work for me. Maybe others got the placebo effect?

Biotin

By 

from Amsterdam, NY

Comments about Spring Valley Biotin 1000 mcg:

I started taking this a week ago. I learned of Biotin from a web site that I am on regularly. It is said that it supports healthy hair, skin and nails. I decided to give it a try because I went through chemo and it did a number on my nails and naturally my hair. Again I have been taking it for only a week and it seems to help so far. Several of the woman on the site swear by it. I take it daily first thing in the morning this way I never forget.
