|Which hair, skin and nail vitamins actually DO something for you? I've got the scoop!|
|HAIRFINITY by Brock Beauty|
The main active ingredients in HAIRFINITY would be their MSM (methylsulfonylmethane), hydrolyzed collagen and high amounts of both biotin and panthothenic acid. These work synergistically and you will notice results very quickly in not just your hair but your nails as well.

Getting Proper Nutrition - The Supporting Cast Members
If you have recently cut down or cut out red meat, dairy, fish, etc. please understand that this can leave serious holes in your diet. Your body will respond by slowing the rate of hair and nail growth as it desperately seeks to conserve protein that you are not getting in your food.
Dropping red meat which is rich in protein, B vitamins and what's called heme iron, can cause you to become anemic. Your nails will show this by becoming very flat so you will need to get your hemoglobin checked and supplement with iron to stay healthy. If you are on the vegetarian or vegan path, you'll need to combine your amino-acids so that you are getting enough protein. Making a shake with something like Garden of Life's Raw Fit High Protein for Weight Loss would be a great idea. Each serving gives you a whopping 28 gms of raw protein from sprouted nuts, seeds and grains. Delicious too.
Take a Good Multiple Vitamin
A natural multiple vitamin should be the cherry on top of a healthy diet. I take Rainbow Light's Certified Organics Women's Multivatimin. Made with whole organic foods and herbs, I can take it on an empty stomach without worrying. In fact I take two each morning with my HAIRFINITY and Phytoceramides. It helps boost the effectiveness of everything else I take.
Get plenty of protein and essential fatty acids in: nuts, seeds, whey, salmon and sardines. Choose fresh garden vegetables first and then dark berries as they are lower in sugar (fructose) than most fruits yet more nutritious.
