" Seems to have started to strengthen the nails within the first week. I have very dry nails that split & crack. The dried out look is gone & it's only been a couple weeks. I gave a months worth to my friend that has her hands in dish water all the time. It's an awfully good buy for the money. If I continue to order, you'll know that it's still working. "

" This product is very good for my
bones, but it made me urinate too

works well. I'm going to keep
using it.

" I've used vegetable silica for over 40 years but this product is better. It's stronger so I don't have to gulp 3 at a time like I had been doing. My husband likes it better too. We will buy more before we run out. "

This works!
 March 19, 2010
" This product works really well especially for my nails. They have become very strong and I am often asked if I go to the nail salon, which I never do - no need to! It hasn't always been like that, only since I began using this product. I used to have trouble nails. It also benefits my hair, makes it feel stronger.
I am very pleased with this product. "

" You have to be careful with horsetail root but not from NSI. Other companies might sell the wrong kind but this one is very safe, I've been taking it everyday for quite awhile. Helps tremendously. "

Great for nails!
 October 5, 2009
" I have had problems growing my nails long for a long time. They are soft, always split, chip or tear. Now they are hard and I have started to grow them to a decent length, 1/4 inch so far. I just purchased one bottle to try it out but now will continue to purchase it. "
