Both my wife and I have wished to improve our fingernails and I have tried a number of products to strengthen mine which have had splitting problems. After around 6 months of supplementing with this product I noticed considerable improvement with much stronger nails with reduced splitting. My wife, skeptical at first, now has noticed her nails are much stronger than before. You will need to be patient to see any results from taking this product - weak finger nails take months to grow out before the effects of stronger nails becomes apparent.
This stuff actually works! I had gastric bypass 3 1/2 years ago and lost A LOT of hair the first year...so bad you could clearly see my scalp in the front! I took Biotin and several other hair vitamins for the first 2 years year but my hair never grew back like other patients I knew. Honestly, I'd given up on my hair ever grow back. Then I read about Silica being good for hair growth so I bought a bottle. My hair started slowly growing back! When it did, I never thought about it being the Silica, I just thought it was because my weight had finally stabilized after 2 years so I didn't reorder a second bottle when I ran out. I'm very skeptical of hair and nail vitamins because I've tried so many and none of them have actually worked for me. Low and behold a few months later, I noticed I didn't have any new growth and my hair was starting to thin out again! That's when I realized that maybe it was the Silica and it DID actually work so I ordered another bottle. My hair started growing back again! I've continued to take it the past year and my hair is finally getting back to what it was before surgery. Even my family and friends have commented how my hair isn't thin anymore.
