    My suggestion is save your money. Unless you’re vitamin deficient (and I would bet unless you have a health condition, you’re not), all you’re doing is making expensive pee, and if you are vitamin deficient, you’ll need a doctor, not forum advice.

    What Akurah said, but some ‘vitamins’ can help if you’re deficient. For instance, I take fish oils. This is something I’ve cycled on and off since I was a teen to keep my excema away. But they make my hair and nails grow much faster and stronger/thicker than when I don’t take them. My guess is because I obviously don’t get enough fish in my regular diet, I don’t live near the sea haha.
    Also if I ever make bone broth I tend to get a boost in the fingernail department (haven’t paid attention to the hair In regards to broth). So essentially it’s about getting good nutrition (obviously), but a lot of vitamins you buy in a bottle are synthetic and aren’t paired with the healthy fats and fibre etc which help you actually absorb the nutrients. Hence the expensive bright yellow wee!!

    ^^ akurah is very much right. If you aren't deficient, there's no point, because it won't do much if anything at all.

    I just take a regular multivitamin, but this is because I *need* it due to health concerns and long-term use of some medication (that eats away at vitamins). I don't take anything extra but my joint supplements (glucosamine/chondroitine, sometimes with MSM, sometimes not).

    Just wanna put my two cents in here and say that bright yellow pee is caused by vitamin B2. B-vitamins are water-soluble and they get peed out within 24 hours. It doesn't mean they don't work, it means that they don't get stored in your body, like fat-soluble vitamins (A, E, D, K). If you eat a lot of food that contains vitamin B2, your pee will be neon yellow too (it's hard to eat that much food, so don't even try ).

    I do feel effects of multivitamins on my body. I started taking vitamins for my hair and nails, and after a couple of months noticed that I felt overall better, less irritable, less fatigued. As for effect on nails and hair, I don't know. I assume there is something, just because my overall health seems to be better.

    I do prefer getting as much from natiral sources as possible though. Like fat-soluble vtamins and omegas, I like taking flaxseed oil or fish oil capsules. When it comes to things like calcium, iron, zinc, B-vitamins, etc., I'd rather take a pill than stuff my face with foods I might not like at all.

    I take omega 3 fatty acids/ fish oil as well. Also, I really like this Vega All In One Protein powder. Itís vitamin/ mineral fortified with quality forms of vitamins/ minerals. I also like some of the formulas from Pure Encapsulations and Vital Nutrients, they also use highly absorbable forms of vitamins/ minerals; and their products are either in capsule or liquid form, which is good (tablets can be hard to break down/ absorb for some people).

    This Vega powder can be found in individual packets at health food stores too, so you can try different ones/ flavors (just be warned the ones that donít say ďall in oneĒ arenít fortified with vitamin/ minerals, those are just plain protein powders):

    I would recommend some as well if you are vegan, let me know, I take supplements on certain seasons.
    For me water intake is one of the most important things, eating plenty of natural foods, exercising and scalp massages.
