“Biotin – Fact Sheet for Health Professionals”. Office of Dietary Supplements, US National Institutes of Health. 8 December 2017. Retrieved 25 February 2018. — Shows biotin deficiency is rare — present in a number of rare disorders .
—- Here the daily values – the amount of nutrients recommended per day for Americans 4 years and older are .3 mg (300 Micrograms)
.03 and .3 mg. The NIH feels there is insufficient evidence to recommend RDA, so they went with Adequate Intake at .03 mg (30 Micrograms). If this stuff is interesting to you, I can talk about this in my videos. Just let me know. I thought it might not interest you, so I saved for the description.
My Trader Joe’s supplement (that I never take) apparently is only slightly higher than the daily recommended value. Though, according to the alert, some supplements have upward of 20mg.

  1. Hey thank you for your video I started using biotin and I don’t know if it’s the biotin but I now have breathing difficulties any idea what wrong I have stopped using it tho it is a 10,000 mcg

  2. Good to know! It occured to me that is why you should tell you doctor about the supplements you are on when he asks you what medications you are taking.

  3. Subscribed while using your video as a tutor for reagents, and now I just find them all interesting. More science breakdowns!
