I used to take hair nails and skin vitamins but havent taken them in a long time, if I start taking them again how long will it take to work?

See below

If you eat a balanced diet and exercise regularly, you don't need them. However, if you decide to use them, it will take at least 8 weeks for the levels to build up in your system enough to see a result.

Dr. Adam C. Cohen answered:

What vitamins can I take or what can I do for really dull skin, and brittle hair and nails, I also have dark under eye circles. Thanks?

Normal nutrition

Vitamin
Young people rarely have vitamin deficiencies. Start with adequate sleep (allows time for your body to repair itself), a broad diet (protein, fruits, vegetables, and grains), and a lot of water. If still concerned, try a simple multi-vitamin. You can choose more expensive "programs," but you probably can't do better than what nature offers.

Dr. Vernon Barton answered:

Do prenatal vitamins help with hair skin & nails if I'm not pregnant?

Perhaps

Medication
Prenatal vitamins are unique in that they have a higher amount of Folic acid along with iron, B12 etc to aid in the building of the blood of the fetus. If you happen to be lacking in some of these nutrients due to a poor diet, then they may be helpful.

Can i take bio zinc vitamins and skin hair and nails vitamins at the same time?

Qualified yes

Skin
Unless you have been specifically diagnosed with a vitamin deficiency, you will likely get more than enough supplementation from a multivitamin and or routine diet. More and more data is coming out showing the potential adverse effects of taking vitamin and mineral supplements and that large doses can be detrimental - a much more common problem in this country than vitamin deficiency.

Dr. Landi Halloran answered:

Can I take blackmores hair skin and nails at the same time as taking blackmores bio zinc vitamins?

Should be OK

Zinc
I checked the manufacturers website for active ingredients. Bio Zinc has zinc, magnesium, manganese, vit A, & vit B6. Hair, skin, nails has silica, vit C, horsetail extract (?), folic acid, vit B5, iron, biotin, betacarotene, & also has zinc & manganese, but in amnts that would be safe combined with the other supplement. Supplements ARE drugs and may interfere with other meds--be sure to check.

Is the main one. There is a vitamin called hair skin and nails that is excellent for just that. Easier than trying to calculate different ones individually....

When one has fatigue, thyroid and parathyroid problems plus skin, hair and nail problmes one must look at hte under-lying causes and make sure one is getting rid of deficiencies and toxicities responsible. See Solved The Riddle of Illness by Stephen Langer. Consider the possibility of thyroiditis. make sure vit D3 and iron are sufficient. Listen to your body. 3 gm Evening primrose oil is helpful.
