Answers
answer 1
microgram vs. milligram. you can google this and find out easily, but microgram is 1,000 times milligram. this product is 5,000 mcg, which is the same as 5 mg.
answered 1 year, 2 months ago
By
ashrestha
answer 2
mcg = microgram
mg = milligram

1000 micrograms (mcg) = 1 milligram (mg)
2000 mcg = 2 mg
5000 mcg = 5 mg

and so on...

This product is known to have a strong odor and the gelatin can also sometimes have a strong odor. We recommend leaving the bottle open in a cool dry place for 30 minutes to let the smell dissipate.

I have never tried Appearex but my nails were thin and brittle like glass. If I hit them against anything they would break. Taking biotin has helped them a lot. I now have ten beautiful nails and they are pretty strong. I buff them regularly and only polish them occasionally. Sally Hanson had a product called "No More Breaks" some time ago that worked well also, I don't know if it is still available.
