Folic Acid

Apparently, it really makes your hair grow fast! (Hair has folic acid in it anyway and your nails do too, i think) Anyone tried this? I have a friend who took it for 3 months and his hair grew about 3 inches in 3 months which is twice the normal speed and his skin cleared up and his nails grew super fast (not that he wanted long nails, would be good for any nail bitters though!) Happy Just wondering if it's worked for anyone else. I'm gonna buy some Happy

I've never heard of that, but read this page about it: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Folic_acid
-Even if it doesn't make your hair grow, it seems that it does heaps of other good things for your body! Happy

Yeh man! I think folic acid is a type of protein and I'm probably a bit anemic as it is and because of the hair growing thing it will make me want to take them cuz I have vitamin tablets but never bother, they have folic acid in them too so I think I'll just stick to the folic acid tablets cuz if I take both it might be too much for my body. There's 250 tablets, i think that's enough! Happy

I'd skip the stand alone and go for a prenatal vitamin. I used to take 'em when I worked for an OB/GYN doc. Free samples rock. Especially when you aren't sharing them with a little one, they make your hair and skin so nice.
