Nature Bounty Review; Hair, Skin and Nails Edition

Nature’s Bounty Hair, Skin and Nails Vitamin

(Capsule Form)

General Overview:

Who says vitamins can’t actually work and still be cheaper? Certainly not me! In this Nature Bounty review I will give you all the information you need to know about this rather popular vitamin brand.

One of the big things for vitamins for me is whether I am going to be burping up the after taste long after I’ve taken them. With this vitamin you will get none of that. There is a bit of an odd taste as it goes down, but that’s it.

It has a nice variety in the vitamins it offers as well.

Allergins: 

Soy and Tree Nut

Side Effects:

I have never experienced side effects with this brand personally. However, when I did my research there are some cases of stomach pains, headaches and nausea.

*These are quite typical side effects for any vitamin and can often be diverted by taking the capsules with food.*

How expensive is it?

The price range can vary anywhere from 12$ to 20$ depending on where you purchase. This is usually three capsules a day for a nearly a two month supply. Not too bad!

Where to find it?

You can find this particular product: Target, Walmart, Rite Aid, Walgreens and AMAZON.

What Do I Rate it at?

They get a 1/2 out of 5! 

For the price these are pretty sturdy little vitamins! Plus they have all natural Vitamin E instead of synthetic! Woot, woot!

The reason why they get 4 1/2 and not 5 is because with using them myself I have noticed a difference in my hair and nails. They both are growing  more quickly than before I used them. I also feel better all around!

However, I have not seen a difference in my skin, but that’s sometimes where looking at the label comes into play. (Sometimes you can’t see the difference, but it IS there. )

Having multiple vitamins that support the skin is what you want and this little vitamin definitely has lots of those.

  1. Sounds like this product is worth trying based on your experience with it. Also, it definitely helps to see the ingredients in this product. I see some key ingredients that gives me the impression that using this product should eventually improve the skin as well. Thanks for sharing.

    1. Claudette,
      thanks so much for stopping by! 🙂 And always glad to help!
      There are definitely some good vitamins packed in here, especially for the skin!

  2. Hi Betsey – Is this product suited for all types of Skin? Because I can suggest this to my sister but need to know will it have any side effects – Yes from your review I didn’t see too much of a side effect but does it really suits all type of skin, hair, etc. Normally if we go to a skin clinic I have seen most doctors prescribe different medicines based on their skin type. Thanks for the post on the product, Keep Well and expecting your response to buy this one.

    1. Hi Manasir,
      Good to talk to ya again and thanks for the great question! 🙂

      This is a general vitamin, so it has a lot of nutrient rich ingredients to help with all around care of the skin. When they prescribe medications they tailor it to the persons skin type to help take care of one very specific problem. This vitamin is solely to help in gaining nutrients for the skin that we might miss, because we don’t eat enough of it with our daily food intake. To make a long answer short, it’s for every skin type.

      And as far as side effects go it completely depends on the person. Usually, from vitamin supplements, the worst you get is nausea, and some times headaches. (Eating can typically deter those symptoms though.)

      I am usually hyper sensitive to vitamins. (Normally I get really nauseous from taking them, but with this one I don’t!)

      Hope this helps!

  3. After finished breastfeeding I was looking for vitamins that can make my skin and hair shine again. Thank you for the review of this particular vitamins as I saw it the other day in the store and was hesitant to take or not to take.

    1. Hi Anna,
      Breastfeeding is really hard on the body! Splitting up the nutrients for you and your little one is a rough process.
      Adding extra vitamins to the process though can really help you both get the nutrients that you need.

  4. Hey Betsey,

    Just curious – about how long were you taking these particular vitamins before you started actually seeing the benefits with your hair and nails? When it comes to vitamins… I think I stop taking them before I get to that point. So just a ballpark time frame would be beneficial! Cheers!

    1. Hey Courtney,
      I usually see the benefits in about a week to a week in a half. With this particular vitamin it was mostly in how quickly my nails and hair were growing. (I bite my nails, so it is easy to gage the growth.)

      I took the entire 30 day supply and didn’t really see a difference in my skin, but sometimes that doesn’t mean its not working.
