Default hhmm.... chewable vitamins??

I have a serious issue when it comes to swallowing pills... to the point where my mom has gone to trader joes and picked a chewable vitamin c and multivitamins :-)

buuuutt I would love it anyone knew a vitamin for hair and nails thats chewable? Or at least exactly what vitamins attribute to hair and nail growth so I could be on the look out for them :-D I would appreciate it mucho!

Check out vitacost.com hair, skin, and nails section. While I did not see any chewables I did see some liquid hair, skin and nail supplements. If you would like to look for specific ingredients separately as chewables, look for the following:

Biotin
MSM
Flaxseed oil
Fish oil

I take the first 3 and I'm having pretty good succes (see dosage in my siggie)

HTH and let me know how your search goes!

the site also has a lozenge in the same section that may help. its not chewable but its like a cough drop so you wont have to swallow a huge pill.

Yea, coincidentally I went on the site myself looking for some supplements right after reading your post, HTH!
let us know how it goes, I might consider since I'm not a huge fan of pills either.

When I was pregnant, my doctor had me take 2 flinstone vitamins a day.
My vitamin B complex is taken sublingually (under the tongue) Sublingual B Total is the brand my doctor uses and recommends.
From ehow.com
Hair and nails are composed of dead proteins that have been pushed away from the body as new ones are made. The way that both the hair and the nails are formed is influenced by certain vitamins. A diet rich in these vitamins can give you stronger, faster-growing hair and nails.

Vitamins A and B
To get your nails to grow faster, get plenty of vitamin A and all of the B-complex vitamins in your diet. Vitamin A can be found in yellow and dark green vegetables. B vitamins can be found in meats and eggs.
Vitamin C
Nail growth is also influenced by vitamin C, which can be found in green peppers as well as in citrus fruits.
Vitamins D and E
Vitamin D, found in dairy products, and vitamin E, found in sunflower seeds, olives and spinach, also promote nail growth.
Stronger hair
To make your hair grow faster and thicker, it needs B-complex vitamins as well as vitamin A. Eating a meal of meat or eggs and a selection of yellow and green vegetables will ensure healthier hair.
Protein power
Eating plenty of protein is also essential for growing healthy hair and nails. Meat, particularly liver and other organ meats, provides plenty of protein as well as B vitamins
