Is it ok to take hair skin and nails vitamins during pregnancy?

Yes as long as...: A good skin hair and nails vitamin will have many of the same vitamins in a good prenatal. But it is important that the total amount of preformed Vit A totals less than 10.000 iu a day. But it is fine to take as much beta carotene as you wish. I advise taking DHA also. and 4000-8000 iu of Vit D3 a day to attain blood levels of 50-80. ...Read more

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. While it is likely that small amounts of the substances are ok, it is prudent to stick with your prenatal vitamins and avoid substances whose effects are not fully understood. ...Read more

It is impossible for anyone here to answer without knowing the exact vitamin you bought, but directions on how to take it should be on the label. Don't overdo, as too high a dose of some nutrients can be harmful, esp. For women of childbearing age. ...Read more
