Naturalist Triple Omega 3-6-9 (Fish, Flax & Borage Oils)--3x a day
Naturalist Garlic supplement--3x a day

I don't know if there are some other good vitamins out there that I should add. If anyone has any suggestions let me know!
So there is a change to my vitamin regimen. I went to the store to buy some more and couldn't find the Hair, Skin & Nails vitamin I was using. So I purchase instead Naturalist Biotin 1000mcg. I will take 5 pills a day resulting in 5000mcg. Is that too much? The pill bottle recommendds 3-5 pills a day so I figured I'd go with the max. I need all the help I can get!

Default Re: 6 Month Vitamin Challenge (Nov-April)

Hey all! Checking in. Last week I missed my very first day of the challenge because I got home very late and completely forgot though my vits were on my mind all night. Despite this small failure, I am proud to report that I have just completed my first bottle of MSM (which I had begun a month before the challenge started)! I am taking 2 1000 mcg pills a day (Rite Aid brand) and just finished a 120 capsule bottle (i.e. 60 days)--luckily I live next to the pharmacy and can quickly restock. This may not be impressive to a lot of you veterans but I have never ever in my life finished a bottle of vitamins before the expiration date. Also, I really think my mix of MSM + biotin + multivitamin is working. At 15 months post I can fully put my thick hair into a substantial ponytail . I can't wait to see what April will bring.

I am currently taking 1 - 5000mcg biotin capsule twice a day now but I originally started out with 1000mcg and simply increased it over time. I will keep this up and see how it affects my hair over at least the next 8-12 months.

Took all my vitamins today. Thinking of adding a prenatal vitamin. I was taking one and just forgot to refill my prescription. But I really should since I'm nursing my baby still and it's good for overall health.

About how long does it take to start noticing results from taking vitamins?

Oh I need this challenge. I've been slacking and usually really start slacking when things get busy....like holiday busy.

Anywho, I'm taking Futurebiotics (GNC), MSM, NAC, super B complex and garlic.
