I just started to use it and I think it is helping. I seem to have more energy and my blood sugar is more even than it had been. From what I have read there are no toxic sde effects even at high doses and it helps you lose weight and good for diabetics.

I enjoy losing weight by eating at a modest calorie deficit and having an active lifestyle.

I've been taking it for my hair. I've noticed it's growing faster and my nails are stronger. That's all I know of that it is useful for.

Agreed with most of the others.

Nothing in the weight loss area, but my hair & nails grow at a crazy speed now!

All B vitamins are going to be good for energy, but B12 is the best for that

I've been taking it for 2 months and it hasn't done anything for weight loss. That's not what I bought it for though. I got it to help with hair and nails, but it hasn't done anything for that either! Actually my nails seem weaker!

I used it for awhile for healthy hair, skin and nails. I never heard anything about weight loss benefits. I am a vitamin supplement junkie. LOL. Swanson Vitamins loves ME! :)

Biotin does help the body burn fat and create energy, but there have been no studies that link it to weight loss. But, that being said, it may help provide you with a little extra energy for working out! And of course, it is good for your skin, hair, and nails!

I've just started trying to take one everyday because I really damaged my hair last year with a color treatment I used, so I want it to grow faster to get the damaged part out!

I take it for my hair since I have PCOS, lost a ton of weight and it started falling out. Hair is growing back nicely, nails have to be cut weekly but haven't noticed much difference with regards to weight loss/energy while taking them.

I use it for my hair because my Topamax has a side effect of hair loss so I'm trying to stop that before it starts since I already have thin hair.

I have taken biotin every day for over 10 years. As a result, my hair and nails are pretty amazing. The weight loss part, not so much. lol!

My mom started to use hercules biotin last year and results was pretty amazing. Her hair started to grow after 3 months of taking it. Also her blood sugar level has been normalized but of course, everyone must consult their physician before taking any dietary supplement or drugs to avoid any complications. It also has an effect on her body figure but it depends on how everyone manage their diets. We must not depend on dietary supplement alone, b'coz it comes with your responsibility on controlling/managing your daily food intake.

Biotin is good stuff It primarily helps the body to metabolize and use the food you eat. I have lost weight and inches off my body without exercise or dieting. I get tons of energy when I take it in the morning. I take 2 tablets of 10,000 mcg each in the morning, I can't take them at night cause I can't sleep if I do.

Biotin helps regulate the blood sugar level and boosts our body metabolism helping our body burn more fats for energy conversion.
