Ask an expert. Can nail vitamins strengthen nails?

Ask an expert. Vitamins for nails can strengthen nails?

Friends, I am opening a new section on the blog “Ask the Expert” as you ask more questions. Today about vitamins for nails and the rules of the new heading.

Let’s take a look at one of the most common questions about “beauty vitamins”. We know that nail vitamins help to strengthen brittle nails, prevent them from splitting and make them stronger without hardening varnishes, which often contain formaldehyde and other toxic substances..

But can nail vitamins really strengthen weak nails??

Vitamins that research has.

There are many different supplements for strengthening nails on iHerb and other stores, but reliable research has been done on several active substances. Biotin and orthosilicic acid are excellent for strengthening nails..

A study of women with brittle nails found that taking 2.5 mg biotin daily for 6 to 9 months increased nail thickness by 25% and reduced the tendency to split (Colombo 1990). At the same time, there is no evidence that further intake of biotin contributed to an even greater strengthening of the nails..

In another study, 91% of patients with brittle nails received 2.5 mg of biotin daily for several months and then showed stronger, harder nails (Floersheim 1989).

Some studies have also shown improvement in brittle nails when taking colloidal silicon (silicic acid) at a dosage of 10-30 ml or 10 mg per day orthosilic acid (orthosilic acid).

How to choose vitamins for nails.

Taking other vitamins daily will also promote healthy and strong nails. And so far there is no evidence that nails will become stronger when taking gelatin, cystine, keratin or yeast..

More is not always better! In the case of biotin, the optimal dosage is 2500 mg per day. If you are offered 5,000 mg and 10,000 mg, ask what the prescriptions are based on.

There are many biotin supplements on iHerb, but I advise Solgar and dose 2-3 capsules a day..

Stabilized Orthosilicic Acid is another proven agent and main component of BioSil’s Collagen Generator, plus it is stabilized with choline for better absorption. Orthosilicic acid is used to strengthen nails, hair and reduce wrinkles. The dosage of the Biosil supplement is 2 capsules per day, which corresponds to 10 mg of orthosilicic acid per day.

My selection of supplements for strengthening nails:



⇒ Biotin Solgar, Biotin, 1000 mcg ⇒ Orthosilicic Acid BioSil, ch-OSA Advanced Collagen Generator.

Nails can become not only brittle, but also grooved with a deficiency of essential fatty acids! I give the complete supplement scheme for strengthening nails in the Healthy Hair and Nails program..

And now the rules for the Ask an Expert heading. You ask any questions in the comments on this post! Then, I choose the three most interesting questions that I answer in the blog..
