Silica vitamins vs. hair, skin and nail vitamins?

Which works better? If I take both will it make my hair grow twice as fast? Lol.

    The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) doesn’t have to approve supplements — no agency in the United States does. Because of inadequate quality control and inspection, supplements contaminated with heavy metals, pesticides, or prescription drugs have been sold to unsuspecting consumers. And FDA rules covering manufacturing quality don’t apply to the companies that supply herbs, vitamins, and other raw ingredients.

    Beginning in February 2008, they experienced one symptom after another: diarrhea, joint pain, HAIR LOSS, lung problems, and fingernails and toenails that fell off. FDA has received numerous reports of harm associated with the use of these products, including stroke, liver injury, kidney failure, heart palpitations, and death. 3-15-11

    According Dr. Melissa Piliang, a dermatologist at the Cleveland Clinic. Americans spent an estimated $176 million on hair loss products last year, and chances are some of that money was not well spent. Don’t let charming salon owners, seductive ads or fancy gimmicks convince you otherwise.

    CNN, Slate, Consumer Reports, MSN, YAHOO have posted them online for years how people spend $20 billion per year on vitamins and supplements.  According to Everyday Health, here's an article that will tell you why . . . those PRODUCTS by any other name do NOT WORK.  It is false advertisements.

    Shampoos are meant for cleaning hair, eating is for growing and you can't speed up time, nor can you speed 'perfection.' "If you have no patience, you have no right growing long hair." ~ Hair expert of the 80's.

    Growing nails comes from: your good genes, good nail care, and all the healthy foods you eat everyday from Mother Nature.

    Beauty products don't make nails grow. Eating does. Babies can do that just by drinking their milk.

    You really are what you eat. If you're eating all the healthy foods from Mother Nature - not made by man or woman or supplements from GNC, your hair, nails, teeth, and the rest of your body will benefit too. You get all your vitamins & minerals from your diet. Your hair's fine. You're health's fine, so are your nails.

    f you're as healthy as a horse and ALREADY doing all that, then there is nothing more you can do.


    Google: "Foods for Healthy Hair" -

    Hubby, my SIL and their mom ALL have the same nails and break easily and hubby and I have eaten the same foods for over 39 years. Then it's from your genes.

    Get a manicure to a good salon, or do them yourself. You can protect them by using one of those plastic gloves. I use gloves often: for chores, gardening, handling papers, going outside during winter, spring & fall, and kitchen, painting, crafting, etc. That way I don't have to wash my hands often.

    It is true that vitamin c induces your period.But excessive use could be a burden to your kidneys and can lead to kidney problems.Inducing period and trying to miscarry on your own is dangerous.It can harm your reproductive system permanently.Plus,trying to induce a period doesn't always lead to miscarriage necessarily.And I don't think that you can terminate a pregnancy with vitamins,even though it's an early one.Plus,I know for a fact that it's quite healthy to take vitamin-c in while pregnant.Recommended dosage 85 mg per day. Anyways,you need to make sure first.You have to take a pregnancy test,it's pretty affordable and since you missed you period,almost always accurate.After it's confirmed by your doctor that you are pregnant,then you can think about for your options.Adoption,abortion or parenting. But you need to find out for sure first. Best of luck.
