Thanks a lot hiflyer.

Folliderm has biotin 5mg?

Isn't it overdose if we take 5mg biotin daily?

I am looking for 2-3mg biotin tablets. If I find one I will post you. Let me know if you find lower dose biotin tablets in india

Default Biotin

Hi, just to let you know, for the biotin to be effective you need a high dose, I'm currently taking 5000mg capsules once a day.

The best quality and brand that I've found is American and it's called Now Biotin and it's available from Amazon.com. Not sure if anyone in India sells this brand but it's worth tracking down the best.


Good luck.

Best wishes - Alejandro

Default found good biotin brands in india

bition 5 mg is optimum dose for haiir-growth. But I prefer little lower dosages, because, I will use it daily for long term.

I found in India we have

Essvit (5 mg) with biotin 5mg - product from Ranbaxy
BTN DT (2.5 mg) with biotin 2.5 mg - product from Zydus Cadila Healthcare Ltd.

I prefer 2nd one for daily use

Hi guys, the quoted doses of 2.5mg and 5mg are virtually useless. You need to be taking at least 5000mg/day for the biotin to be effective. I've been taking the Now Biotin, with veggie caps, for the last nine months and find them to be very effective.

I've just returned from 4.5 months of living and working in India and I can tell you that Now brand biotin is not available there, as far as I know, but it is available through Amazon (which is where I order mine from).

I can't recommend this product highly enough. It's excellent quality, with a sufficiently high dose, and for Indians who are strictly veg, they use a veggie capsule.

@Alejandro
1mg = 1000mcg
Therefore 5mg = 5000mcg
