My New Hair Vitamins! - GNC Women's Hair, Skin & Nails Soft Chew

Wednesday, April 06, 2016

Over the weekend I went to GNC in Buffalo, NY and grabbed a few packs of these tasty Hair, Skin and Nail soft chew vitamins. I'm so excited to share this because these soft chews are my current hair obsession! I've tried them in the past but because I wasn't consistent enough, I didn't bother track my results.... but I did receive great results i.e. increased growth!

I know there are tons of HSN vitamins on the market; however, these vitamins are by far my favourite. Why you ask? well for starters, they taste so good i.e. grape juice! In fact, I always remember to take them because they taste so good:) Not to mention they help promote hair growth, healthy skin and stronger/longer nails...and I don't have to swallow them!! I'm such a big baby when it comes to swallowing pills, I'd rather chew :)

These hair candies vitamins ($22.00 US), come in packs of 60 filled with the following (info based on one(1) soft chew a day):
  • Vitamin A - 1000 IU
  • Vitamin A a multi-functional antioxidant that promotes healthy skin, hair and nails and also enhances the immune system. Vitamin A allows the scalp to produce sebum which aids in the thickness and shine of hair.
  • Vitamin C - 60 mg
  • Vitamin C helps to build collagen, a protein that is crucial in the progress of hair growth. Effective in the treatment of hair loss. Aids in the health of the skin and enhances the immune system. Increases scalp circulation, which aids in hair growth.
  • Vitamin D - 400 IU
  • Vitamin D3 Plays a key role in preventing hair loss as well as fostering hair growth. Enhances the immune system.
  • Biotin - 3000 mcg
  • Biotin (B7) B-complex vitamin useful in the prevention of hair loss and premature graying. Promotes elasticity within the hair’s cortex while thickening cuticles to eliminate breakage. Decreases itchy dry and flaky scalp. Supports the health of the hair, skin and nails.
  • Type I & Type III Collagen - 250 mg
  • Collagen type I is abundant in the skin, tendon, ligaments, bone, teeth, and in between organs. Collagen type III is abundant in the muscle, blood vessels, and skin
  • Silica - 25mg
  • Silica helps regenerate skin, hair and nails by repairing connective tissue, which may result in hair growth and a significant delay in greying.
  • Hyaluronic Acid - 5mg
  • Hyaluronic acid can improve your skin’s moisture content and strengthen skin’s barrier. 
  • alpha-Lipoic Acid - 5mg
  • Alpha lipoic acid protects both cell membranes and the inside of cells against oxidative damage, helping skin attain a youthful and healthy appearance.
  • Lutemax 2020 Lutein - 500 mcg
  • Provides skin hydration.
You may ask, "so why are you taking hair vitamins at this point in your hair journey?" Well, I have goals in mind for this Summer and I think using a vitamin, this time around, will help expedite them!

Hair Goals:

a) Longer, thicker hair
b) Stronger nails
c) Clear smooth skin

As I mentioned before, I experienced a large amount of growth while taking these vitamins in the past while being inconsistent.  This time around I want to be consistent & document it! Can't wait :)
