What are some good Gluten-free/ Lactose Free snack/meal ideas for the FODMAP diet?

Recently, my doctor has placed me on the FODMAP diet to elminate what's causing my stomache problems and I'm having a hard time finding things to eat now that I can not have Wheat, Dairy, Artificial Sweeteners, or anything high in sugar.

*I have discovered Peanut Butter, Rice Cakes, Rice, Lactose Free Milk, Oatmeal, Strawberries, Bananas And Salads (I need more salad ideas) but I need more ideas for snacks and meals.

*If you could please give me some ideas that would help greatly. I've already checked online and I can't find anything else.

And Remember, NO wheat, lactose, super sugary foods or artificial sweeteners ending in -ol.]
Thanks.

Are you doing a special diet PLUS a low FODMAP diet? Or just the FODMAP diet.

I ask because the limits you have seem more than the FODMAP diet. For example, from everything I've read, maple syrup is allowed on the diet, but it would be high in sugar. However, most fruits are high in sugar as well, so would they be a problem?

I tend to go by lists like this: Http://ibs.about.com/od/ibsfood/a/The-FO…

You might want to check out growing your own stevia – you can purchase it in a powder, but the plant itself is sweet with no processing. It can be grown, and you can look up on line how to extract the sweet by soaking it in water in certain proportions.

Yacon syrup might also be a possibility – it is extracted from an Amazonian plant, but it contains inulin, which creates a sweet taste but without sugar.

Some food ideas: spinach salad with strawberries, and thin out peanut butter with a little lime juice and something sweet (yacon syrup, maple, homemade berry juice, stevia liquid) for a salad dressing.

You're likely going to need meat – meat with fruit chutneys may be useful. For example, pork is often paired with things like banana and oranges in a lot of caribbean dishes. Red meat or chicken cooked with water and chopped veggies will get you some good soup varieties.

If you juice oranges and lemons (juice them yourself, as opposed to buying them pre-juiced) you can boil them down to 1/2 the volume and they make a tolerable sweetener if you want to try and make smoothies. Citrus juice, berries, and bananas are easy smoothies, and you can add some greens in to make it a bit healthier. Rice milk can be used, too – easy to make yourself. Many recipes online

I can't recall if you can have coconut on the FODMAP diet, but I'd find out. Coconut milk is great for smoothies, homemade ice cream, to add to broth for Asian soups – there are some amazing Thai soups involving peanuts and coconut.

If you get some corn masa, that's wonderful. You can make homemade corn tortillas with this, which are very tasty, very filling, taste nice with some meat and roasted or stir fried bell peppers on it. You can even layer it like lasagna noodles and make a mexican lasagna. We used layers of chicken with green chile and tomatoes between the homemade corn tortillas.

Wishing you good luck – it's tricky, but doable.

Help with recipes, meal plans, anything, something?

Gluten free, no sugar, no sodium, no meat, no dairy, no fruit, no fake sweetners,. What's left to eat??? :-(

My allowed foods are somewhat different, but they are strict enough that I might at least have some ideas.

1. Check out stevia and yacon syrup. Stevia is a plant in the sunflower family which has sweet leaves. You can grow this and simply grind up the leaves and use them as a sweetener. You can even look up how to make stevia syrup with just stevia and water. This does not contain any sugar, glucose, fructose, etc… It contains a substance called inulin which is not digested by the human body – it just passes through – but tastes sweet. Yacon syrup is also from a plant with inulin. These may be acceptable in your diet, especially if you grow the stevia yourself. I can't have sugar or fake sweeteners or most fruit and I can tolerate this.

2. Check out a place called veggie ventures: Http://aveggieventuresrecipebox.blogspot…
Tons of vegetable recipes – if you are in the mood for something sweet in a sauce or main dish, squash is a good one, as is roasted bell pepper or tomato. Roasted vegetables carmelize a little and have a sweeter taste. They can also make a pretty good soup – for example. If you roast a whole eggplant and onion, then peel the skin off and blend it up in the blender and mix with a couple cups of veggie soup stock, you've got a pretty nice soup. You can add a little sour taste – like a smidgen of vinegar – after cooking to brighten it up a bit.

3. Beans – beans make some AWESOME stuff. Refried beans, falafel, and hummus are great. I have used very mild vinegar instead of lemon juice with homemade hummus, although you might check if you can have lemons or limes in your diet. A lot of no-fruit diets, if they are fruit free due to sugar content, may allow lemons or limes. There is also a french flatbread that is chickpea based, called socca – just has olive oil, water, salt, and chickpeas. Tons of recipes online – we've used it as the base for a GF pizza, with homemade tomato sauce and roasted bell peppers and mushrooms on it.

4. GF grains. Injera bread is a fermented traditional ethiopian flatbread that is fermented – is tastes a bit like a sourdough crepe and is used to wrap up main dishes, like lentil dishes. You can find GF recipes for this is you look up 'traditional' injera – modern versions use wheat. You can have both popcorn and popped sorghum – olive oil and salt taste good on these. Corn masa is AWESOME – you make homemade corn tortillas with this and they taste wonderful. Much better than store bought, thicker and breadier. They taste awesome with refried beans, guacamole, tomatoes, chiles, and so on.

5. Asian foods. Get some GF soy sauce and you can make an easy stir fry with a veggie (like asparagus, or baby bok choy) and stir fry it for a bit in water, then add a bit of GF soy sauce and chopped garlic at the end. Serve over rice. You can add some chiles for spice with this, some ginger, all sorts of things. There are rice based desserts from Japan and China that use a bean paste which doesn't contain sugar because the bean itself is somewhat sweet, as I recall.

6. Sweet potato is a VERY nice food if you have a sweet craving (that was what I missed the most, when I lost all my sweet foods). Chop them into long rectangles and bake for sweet potato fries. Or bake and mash them – tastes lovely with toasted pecans or other nuts.

7. There is something called nut cheese you could look into – a vegan food that is made from nut pulp with spices and herbs added – it's not too bad, really.

8. Eggs will give you lots of options, too. Boiled, added to fried rice, mixed with veggies for some awesome omelets, that sort of thing.

9. Swiss chard has a somewhat salty taste, which can be nice with things hat have no salt. I don't know if other foods, maybe fish sauce, might have a salty taste with low to no sodium. Not sure on this one.

10. Avocados are a great added ingredient if you are looking for a creamy texture. So is silken tofu and soaked cashews – vegan, vegetarian, and raw foodists often have recipes that use these ingredients in this way and may have good ideas for you.

That's all I could think of right off the bat, but I hope it helps.

For more recipe ideas, I'd check out sites that have vegan recipes (will be meat and dairy free), recipes for people on yeast overgrowth diets or frucmal diets (fructose malabsorption will be very low to no added sugar and low to no fruits), and many gluten free folks have gluten and dairy free recipes, so that might help. Raw foodists may have some recipes you could use, too.

Wishing you good luck – it's SO hard to start off on a diet like this, but you can definitely do it.

Questions and Answers

Psychology- human nature?

What are: the 'problems of the nature of human nature?

Posted by sase8686
[display_name id=”1″]

Human nature differs very little from animal nature, except that we can communicate through spoken language and that we can think problems out in a constructive manner. Basic human nature is to survive, and to reproduce. Love, hate, kindness, greed – all those things should come under 'nurture' rather than 'nature'. No one is born good or bad. Our behaviour is learnt rather than instinctive. The problem is that throughout the modern ages we tend to strive to out-do our fellow man, we want more and share less. There is no problem with human nature, as I see it, only with human nurture.

Nature is holistic. Though Nature exists, Something can not be pin-pointed as nature. Similarly, Life is also holistic and exists, yet something can not be pointed as life. Both can be thus explained only by showing examples.

Nature is eternal, despite destruction of forests, destruction of mountains destruction of river and so on.. Life is also eternal, despite our seeing death of one creature or another always.

Life and Nature both have same origin, yet they appear to be so different to each other, but yet they are one and the same, being part of each other! Life is part of nature and nature is part of life.

Life looks like intelligence and nature looks like dumb; but in reality, nature is full of life otherwise it will not be Nature and Life is full of nature as otherwise it will not be life!!

One can learn from both Nature and Life.

One camouflages the other. Nature is supported by life, yet Nature supports life.Nature and Life can not exist independently.

What is a good protein shake that has cookies n creme flavour?

I been workin out and need proteinshake.
Tryin to get a protein shake that's good n not too expensive.

Posted by BOB46
[display_name id=”1″]

Spirutein is the tastiest cookies and cream shake I've ever had! Ummmm, just thinking about it makes me want one. Trust me, don't go for the Herbalife one. It doesn't mix properly and so the texture comes out gross and the flavor is lackluster. The Shaklee brand is super tasty and lower on sugar than the Spirutein. The Herbalife or Shaklee brand is super expensive and you have to buy through a distributor who will want to make a distributor out of you. Spirutein can be picked up at most healthfood stores such as Fruitful Yield. The sugar content is going to be higher than some of the other good brands but it is tasty. Sometimes, the healthiest shake is the grossest as far a flavor. I once tried a chocolate multi sprout powder that had an incredible protein content, low on sugar, and full of every good thing you could imagine even wheat grass! But, there was no way to make it taste good. Even when watered down and mixed with another powder I could hardly stand it. Don't ever get hooked into a distributor's brand without trying it first. They'll say anything to get you to part with your money. Spirutein is not going to be the cheapest but it is not the most expensive and it is a good quality brand being Nature's Way. I'm hooked on the Nature's Way shakes in general. They have a ton of varieties and I've never felt let down by a purchase of their product. They have different flavors at different prices but the cookies and cream is not one of the expensive ones. One of my nephews got hooked on it for his workouts too when I worked for a health food store. If you're concerned about the price point, check a couple of different stores as they will carry it at slightly different prices. The other AWESOME thing about the Nature's Way brand shakes is that you can pick up a packet of their Cookies and Cream flavor to try it before having to buy a whole can. That's another benefit. If you don't like it – you're only out about a buck in trying it. I've purchased the packets in most smaller retail and chain health food stores. Sometimes, the bigger stores won't carry the packets, probably because they don't have the security to keep them from getting stolen.

Because It's A Miracle-Nature's Oil Growth Spray is only sold in Cases, Would a smaller (3-pk) get you to try?

The product is "Amazing" and works "GREAT", only issue is that its only sold by the case. I'm an independent Distributor, and think I should make a smaller order available for my customers consisting of only "three" bottles so that it has the potential to reach more people in need of its great potential! -To regrow hair at rapid rates. I'm trying to figure a better way to grow my home-based business.

Questions and Answers

What foods can I eat to increase the speed at which my hair grows?

I want to grow my hair. Just after getting it cut :(
Suggestions for foods, vitamins etc to aid in the growth speed please?

Posted by Private You
[display_name id=”1″]

Healthy Hair Food No. 1: Salmon
When it comes to foods that pack a beauty punch, it's hard to beat salmon. Loaded with omega-3 fatty acids, this high-quality protein source is also filled with vitamin B-12 and iron.

"Essential omega-3 fatty acids are needed to support scalp health," says Andrea Giancoli, MPH, RD, a dietitian in Los Angeles and a spokeswoman for the American Dietetic Association. "A deficiency can result in a dry scalp and thus hair, giving it a dull look."

Vegetarian? Include one or two tablespoons of ground flaxseed in your daily diet for some plant-based omega-3 fats.

Healthy Hair Food No. 2: Dark Green Vegetables
Popeye the Sailor Man didn't eat all that spinach for healthy hair, but he could have. Spinach, like broccoli and Swiss chard, is an excellent source of vitamins A and C, which your body needs to produce sebum. The oily substance, secreted by your hair follicles, is the body's natural hair conditioner.

Dark green vegetables also provide iron and calcium.

Healthy Hair Food No. 3: Beans
Beans, beans, they're good for your … Hair?

Yes, it's true. Legumes like kidney beans and lentils should be an important part of your hair-care diet. Not only do they provide plentiful protein to promote hair growth, but ample iron, zinc, and biotin. While rare, biotin deficiencies can result in brittle hair.

Blatner, who is also a spokeswoman for the American Dietetic Association, recommends three or more cups of lentils or beans each week.

Healthy Hair Food No. 4: Nuts
Do you go nuts for thick, shiny hair? You should.

Brazil nuts are one of nature's best sources of selenium, an important mineral for the health of your scalp.

Walnuts contain alpha-linolenic acid, an omega-3 fatty acid that may help condition your hair. They are also a terrific source of zinc, as are cashews, pecans, and almonds. A zinc deficiency can lead to hair shedding, so make sure nuts are a regular on your healthy hair menu.

Healthy Hair Food No. 5: Poultry
Chickens and turkeys may have feathers, but the high-quality protein they provide will help give you the healthy hair you crave.

"Without adequate protein or with low-quality protein, one can experience weak brittle hair, while a profound protein deficiency can result in loss of hair color," Giancoli tells WebMD.

Poultry also provides iron with a high degree of bioavailability, meaning your body can easily reap its benefits.

Healthy Hair Food No. 6: Eggs
When it comes to healthy hair, it doesn't matter whether you like your eggs scrambled, fried, or over easy. However they're served up, eggs are one of the best protein sources you can find.

They also contain biotin and vitamin B-12, which are important beauty nutrients.

Healthy Hair Food No. 7: Whole Grains
Sink your teeth into hearty whole grains, including whole-wheat bread and fortified whole-grain breakfast cereals, for a hair-healthy dose of zinc, iron, and B vitamins.

A whole-grain snack can also be a great go-to food when your energy is zapped halfway through the afternoon, and you've still got hours to go before dinner.

Healthy Hair Food No. 8: Oysters
Oysters may be better known for their reputation as an aphrodisiac, but they can also lead to healthy hair — and who doesn't love that?

The key to their love and hair-boosting abilities is zinc — a powerful antioxidant.

If oysters don't make a regular appearance on your dinner plate, don't despair. In addition to getting it from whole grains and nuts, you can also get zinc from beef and lamb.

Healthy Hair Food No. 9: Low-Fat Dairy Products
Low-fat dairy products like skim milk and yogurt are great sources of calcium, an important mineral for hair growth. They also contain whey and casein, two high-quality protein sources.

For some healthy hair foods "to-go," try throwing a yogurt or cottage cheese cup in your bag when you head out in the morning to snack on later in the day. You can even boost their hair benefits by stirring in a couple of tablespoons of ground flaxseeds or walnuts for omega-3 fatty acids and zinc.

Healthy Hair Food No. 10: Carrots
Carrots are an excellent source of vitamin A, which promotes a healthy scalp along with good vision.

Since a healthy scalp is essential for a shiny, well-conditioned head of hair, you'd be wise to include carrots in your diet as snacks or toppings on your salad.

The Big Picture: A Balanced Diet for Healthy Hair
When it comes to foods for healthy hair and beauty, variety is the best way to go.

"An overall balanced diet of lean proteins, fruits, and vegetables, whole grains, legumes, fatty fish like salmon and low-fat dairy will help keep hair healthy," Giancoli says.

If you're tempted to drop pounds fast with the latest fad diet, it could leave you with less-than-healthy hair — along with a growling stomach. Low-calorie diets are often low in some of the most important nutrients for healthy hair, including omega-3 fatty acids,

1. Stand tall! You look thinner and more confident. If you need to remind yourself to stand tall, a few strategically placed Post-it Notes should do the trick.

2. Drink Up!
Keep those fluids coming! Being dehydrated causes the body to hoard water, which can lead you to carry up to four excess pounds around your midsection. Try for six to eight 8-oz. Glasses of water or other fluids daily. Dehydration could also be causing your lack of energy; read on.

3. Have a Seat!
"Most women don't want to talk about it, but you really have to set aside a specific time each day to use the bathroom," notes Judith Reichman, M.D., a professor of obstetrics and gynecology at the University of California, Los Angeles. If you don't, it's too easy to give in to feeling rushed, and ignore the urge to go." Once you've trained your brain to dismiss your body's signals, you set the stage for bloat-inducing constipation. Feeling backed up? Find out natural ways to get your system humming again.

4. Masticate Mindfully
Rather than scarfing down meals, make a point of chewing each bite at least 10 times before swallowing. "The body has to work overtime to break down food in the stomach and intestines, which can lead to major gas and indigestion," Dr. Reichman says. Plus, when you eat fast, you're more prone to swallowing air, which can ratchet up your risk of developing a potbelly. If you've got gas, learn the chemical-free ways to get rid of it.

5. Turn to the "Pros"
"Probiotics are 'good' bacteria that help your digestive system break down food, preventing the gastrointestinal issues that can keep you from having a flat stomach," explains nutritionist Jonny Bowden, Ph.D., author of The Most Effective Natural Cures on Earth. To ensure your plumbing is working at optimum capacity, Bowden suggests eating a daily serving of a probiotic-rich food like yogurt (or drinking a glass of buttermilk), or taking a supplement containing at least 50 milligrams of probiotics. (Look for versions that contain the strains acidophilus and bifidobacterium, and are produced by reputable vitamin companies, like Nature's Way.) Yogurt can do other good things for your body — get the scoop.

What is ATP molecule?(in detail)?

I know the full-form…..i want to know it in detail…also in the textbook it was written it breaks down with water .so does it means when we drink water ATP molecule will release energy???(I M IN 10TH)

Adenosine Triphosphate – ATP
Paul May – Bristol University

The 1997 Nobel prize for Chemistry has been awarded to 3 biochemists for the study of the important biological molecule, adenosine triphosphate. This makes it a fitting molecule with which to begin the 1998 collection of Molecule's of the Month. Other versions of this page are: a Chime version and a Chemsymphony version.

ATP – Nature's Energy Store:
All living things, plants and animals, require a continual supply of energy in order to function. The energy is used for all the processes which keep the organism alive. Some of these processes occur continually, such as the metabolism of foods, the synthesis of large, biologically important molecules, e.g. Proteins and DNA, and the transport of molecules and ions throughout the organism. Other processes occur only at certain times, such as muscle contraction and other cellular movements. Animals obtain their energy by oxidation of foods, plants do so by trapping the sunlight using chlorophyll. However, before the energy can be used, it is first transformed into a form which the organism can handle easily. This special carrier of energy is the molecule adenosine triphosphate, or ATP.

ATP's Structure:
The ATP molecule is composed of three components. At the centre is a sugar molecule, ribose (the same sugar that forms the basis of RNA). Attached to one side of this is a base (a group consisting of linked rings of carbon and nitrogen atoms); in this case the base is adenine. The other side of the sugar is attached to a string of phosphate groups. These phosphates are the key to the activity of ATP.

How it works:
ATP works by losing the endmost phosphate group when instructed to do so by an enzyme. This reaction releases a lot of energy, which the organism can then use to build proteins, contact muscles, etc. The reaction product is adenosine diphosphate (ADP), and the phosphate group either ends up as orthophosphate (HPO4) or attached to another molecule (e.g. An alcohol). Even more energy can be extracted by removing a second phosphate group to produce adenosine monophosphate (AMP).

When the organism is resting and energy is not immediately needed, the reverse reaction takes place and the phosphate group is reattached to the molecule using energy obtained from food or sunlight. Thus the ATP molecule acts as a chemical 'battery', storing energy when it is not needed, but able to release it instantly when the organism requires it.

The Phosphorus Cycle
The fact that ATP is Nature's 'universal energy store' explains why phosphates are a vital ingredient in the diets of all living things. Modern fertilizers often contain phosphorus compounds that have been extracted from animal bones. These compounds are used by plants to make ATP. We then eat the plants, metabolise their phosphorus, and produce our own ATP. When we die, our phosphorus goes back into the ecosystem to begin the cycle again…

The 1997 Nobel Prize for Chemistry:
The Nobel prize for Chemistry in 1997 has been shared by:

(1) Dr John Walker of the Medical Research Council's Laboratory of Molecular Biology (LMB) at Cambridge (an institution which has been responsible for 10 Nobel prizes since 1958!)
(2) Dr Paul Boyer of the University of California at Los Angeles
(3) Dr Jens Skou of Aarhus University in Denmark.

The prize was for the determination of the detailed mechanism by which ATP shuttles energy. The enzyme which makes ATP is called ATP synthase, or ATPase, and sits on the mitochondria in animal cells or chloroplasts in plant cells. Walker first determined the amino acid sequence of this enzyme, and then elaborated its 3 dimensional structure. Boyer showed that contrary to the previously accepted belief, the energy requiring step in making ATP is not the synthesis from ADP and phosphate, but the initial binding of the ADP and the phosphate to the enzyme. Skou was the first to show that this enzyme promoted ion transport through membranes, giving an explanation for nerve cell ion transport as well as fundamental properties of all living cells. He later showed that the phosphate group that is ripped from ATP binds to the enzyme directly. This enzyme is capable of transporting sodium ions when phosphorylated like this, but potassium ions when it is not. More details on the chemistry of ATPase can be found here, and you can download the 2 Mbyte pdb file for Bovine ATPase from here.

References: Chemistry in Britain, November 1997, and much more information on the history of ATP and ATPase can be found at the Swedish Academy of Sciences and at Oxford University.

Yes.
NEVER take supplements without your doctor's OK. Buy/use supplements at your own risk.
If you're healthy, & very active, your nails are growing, your hair should be growing RIGHT NOW. My 4 years old grand daughter knows how to let her hair grow. It's almost down to her waist. If you want perfection, you NEED patience. Even anorexic models have long hairs, and they're not considered 'healthy'. Http://www.dailymail.co.uk/health/articl…
I was one, and had long hair when I weighed 85 lbs.

Babies can do that, by drinking their milk. . . . So can you, so can any of us without any help. From your: good genes, good hair care and all the healthy foods from Mother Nature, that's where you get all your vitamins & minerals for growing from head to toes. Shampoos are meant for cleaning the hair, not for growing.

If you've straightened your hair in the past, it may grow slowly or none at all.

NO MATTER which link you picked, they all suggest the same foods. Your hair may be the fastest-growing tissue in the body but, unlike the skin, it cannot repair itself. That is why getting the right balance of vitamins and proteins is imperative. Don't expect to look like you've stepped out of a hair commercial the day after you've changed your diet. It is likely to take at least three months before you actually see tangible results. Hair is dead, but hair also has electrical energy; the negative charge of damaged hair can lead to flyways and unruly hair.

Growing healthy hair doesn't come from a bottle or pills and hair products do not speed hair growth. Any hair oil, is another form to keep hair moisturized, nothing more. If you're in HS, your hair & nails should be growing normally, and as healthily as possible, since you're eating healthy foods. But when hair isn't growing as fast, it's because they've been tampered with: chemicals, hair straightening, etc. . .

Cutting your split ends yourself, spend 5-10 mins. On a sunny day so you can easily spot them, using a 2" scissors, cut strand by strand, section by section, allowing new growth to take over. Then 2x a year, get a good hair cut. This won't speed things up, but it will make the hair look healthier while it's growing. Even healthy hair like mine get them, due to normal brushing & styling. Hormonal changes can have a big effect on hair.

Watch the movie "Side Effects". Hair products are not made of glue to fix, prevent, reverse hair from getting damaged or hair loss, they are a trillion dollar business and they also do not give money back guarantee for damaged hair or hair loss caused by heat & chemicals – hair's worst enemies.

Beginning in February 2008, they experienced one symptom after another: diarrhea, joint pain, HAIR LOSS, lung problems, and fingernails and toenails that fell off.

"You find people oiling hair every single day, the hair sweats and it doesn’t get washed. What do you think happens? It goes limp and becomes thin because it is not breathing,” Shamillah Mohammed, a hairstylist at SUQA, says.
HAIR TRIVIA:
• The hair on your head grows at about 0.00000001 miles per hour. That's a half-inch per month. Mine grows 3/4" in 29 days.
• Every day, the 5 million or so hairs on an adult's body add about 40 yards of new growth.
• At any given moment, about 90% of the hairs on your head are growing and 10% are getting ready to abandon ship.

Has anyone tried Nature's Plus (The Energy Supplements) Sustained Release Ultra Hair Ditary Supplement?

When my mom purchased these from a Health Store, she told me that the store clerk says that when people who use this supplement return to the store a few months later to purchase this supplement again, that their hair is much thicker and longer. I just want to know if anyone has ever used this or any other hair vitamin formulas like it? If so, what where the results of you using it, and how long did it take you to notice results in your hair (ultimately, it's health, length and overall condition)?

I have never used Nature's Plus products, but I do use Aloette Radiance vitamin supplements. The are skin, hair & nail specific. I can tell you this . . . .
My hair started to fall out when I became menopausal. Also my nails, which were never great, started splitting down the middle because of what I figured were flaws that I developed.

I started taking the vitamins about a year ago. Flaws in my nails are definitely gone & they are stronger than ever. My hair has stopped falling out, and does grow faster than it used to.

They also help to nourish your skin from the inside out.

I highly recommend them. If you are interested, email me at jilkene@yahoo.com. I will give you the name of my consultant. She is great. Very knowledgeable about skin and what is needed to keep it in the best shape and about Aloette's products. Informs me of all sales she is running so I can get the most for my money.

Has anyone used Nature's Bounty Hair, Skin & Nails supplements?

If so… What is your review?

I do not recommend using hair or nails supplements. Like medications, birth control pills, & supplements ALL HAVE SIDE EFFECTS, that can do more harm than good.

Man-made products & supplements can do more harm than good.

If you've straightened your hair in the past, it may grow slowly or none at all. If you're active and healthy, your hair should be growing, your nails and the rest of your body should be growing.
