Certainly no supplements will preferentially aid growth in only specific areas! There is some evidence that biotin does improve keratin infrastructure important in healthy hair/nails. But not clear any better than the right amount of other B vitamins best obtained in healthy diet ...Read more

Pregnancy: A number of the supplements you mentioned are strong antioxidants and affect the redox potential in the cell. The process of cellular differentiation has been shown to be influenced by the redox status of the cell.
