"My hair and nails are growing so fast and looks healthier too!" ~product review by Savanah29

  • Even more silica than horsetail grass

  • Standardized to 70% organic silica

  • Supports hair, skin and nail health

You probably already know horsetail grass is a great source of natural silica, but it's nothing compared to bamboo. While horsetail is about 7% silica by weight, bamboo boasts an average 70% all-natural silica concentration! The average healthy adult maintains approximately 20 grams of silica within the body, but that level tends to drop with age due to reduced assimilation and other factors. Supplementing with quality all-natural silica like our Bamboo Extract is a great way to ensure healthy intake and nourish the vital tissues that depend on this essential nutrient.

Excellent so far Made the purchase for hair strengthening/growing benefits but too early to tell about those. What I have noticed, my nails are growing super quick and my face has become more even toned in the short time that I have been taking this product. March 27, 2014
Much needed Really good product. I am an african american female, my hair grows well but inwanted a boost. Nails are super long so i know my hair will follow, very light on the stomach, no nausea. I use in conjunction with prenatal pills (bamboo n vitamin in the am) and biotin at night (since it gives me a headache) overall im very happy. March 9, 2014
Excellent Price on Silica This is convenient to take and I believe it helps with my skin and tendons and joints. I appreciate that it has no side effects as far as I can tell. March 6, 2014
My hair has been growing like crazy since using this product. I'm not sure if it's the MSM or a combination of both or this one, but my hair feels softer and has definitely grown a few inches longer. March 5, 2014
My hair and nails are growing so fast and looks healthier too! February 24, 2014
Third order Love me some Bamboo silica. Helps what a middle age woman likes to keep herself looking good. January 26, 2014
This product is incredible. I have been taking this product for about three years. And I love it. It does wonders for my hair. I will continue taking this product. The price of this product is incredible. December 21, 2013
Greate Been taking this for a few weeks and already notice huge improvement to skin and hair. December 6, 2013
Bamboo Extract It took only a month to notice great improvement in the vitality of my hair. November 22, 2013
Excellent! This is the real deal and I take it daily. November 11, 2013
Great Product! I have been taking this for about 2 months now and my skin, nails, and hair feel amazing! My hair and nails have also been growing like wildfire. I'm extremely happy with the product. October 31, 2013
Healthy nails and hair This is the best product I have ever used for hair and nail growth. I have tried every vitamin and supplement for hair and nail growth and nothing has compared to this. I have even purchased the very expensive celebrity endorsed supplement. I used that product for a year and noticed minimal difference. I have used the bamboo supplement for less than 3 months and my nails have never been stronger. My hair is also growing much faster than it ever has. I love this stuff and will continue to use it. October 23, 2013
Stronger nails Since taking your Bamboo Extract, my nails are stronger and I'm not seeing as much hair in my drain after showering. Great product! October 6, 2013
It works great My nails love this! My nails use to be brittle and bent easily, after using bamboo extract for 2 weeks the results were amazing, my nails are literally as hard as a rock. This is my main stay. I just re-ordered, would not be without it. I also take purvana hair skin and nails. Thanks Swanson. great delivery time too. October 6, 2013
BEST item for Hair & Nails Bamboo Extract has more silica than other items I've researched and taking this product has helped my 81 year old mother, my sister and myself to grow hair faster. Our nails grow faster and stronger. There's just no downside to taking this product.....it really works. October 5, 2013
High quality at great price! I was researching for a 'healthy hair' article and came across several papers about the value of bamboo extract. Finding a high quality supplement meeting research specs is not that easy or affordable. I found exactly what I was looking for at a very affordable price. Swanson Vitamins is becoming my 'go to' source for all my supplements. I even signed up for auto delivery, and I rarely do that. I compare supplement nutrition labels, on websites and in stores and Swanson consistently offers high potency supplement products I'm looking for that not a lot of others do. I prefer to buy locally when possible, but I keep coming back for the quality and price. I like the flexibility of auto delivery options - up to 3 months out. Shipping is fast, too. I've never had to return anything, so can't speak to that part of the company. Way to go Swanson Vitamins!! October 4, 2013
bamboo for hair growth I started taking bamboo to help my hair grow thicker and longer. it has worked wonders! the best stuff i have used yet. my hair is twice as thick as it was. and has grew past my butt! i actually had to quit taking it, cause i am sitting on my hair! September 30, 2013
Great product I am growing my hair down to the floor and that's how I plan on being beautifull when I get older. I love how I am able to find all the natural products that I need all in 1 place. August 20, 2013
Good for bones, hair, etc. I take silica as one of multiple supplements to promote bone health and it is also supposed to be good for hair and nails. I wish I had discovered this a long time ago. August 17, 2013
Bend--Don't Break I have used silica on a daily basis in one form or another for over 20 years and I am extremely pleased with this source of silica. I once saw a documentary about mountain gorillas where the silver back periodically led his troup to the top of the mountain to feast on fresh bamboo. Not an easy trek, but he knew from his experiences and instinct the health benefits for his charges. Silica is used to provide strength where architectural stability is required such as in collagen, the major structural protein of our body. It is an essential building block, brick and mortar, structure and glue, of collagen. Silicon atoms form extremely strong bonds with their neighboring atoms resulting in relatively strong and stable molecules., ergo, bend-don't break or rupture. August 16, 2013
Help for Hair and Skin I use bamboo extract to improve my skin and hair health; it more than meets my expectation August 12, 2013
Great for Nails! I purchased this after reading reviews on a hair forum about the benefits of silica on hair growth. I read that bamboo is one of the most effective forms of silica. I purchased silica in the past from another site, and I don't really remember the results so I decided to try this brand. I haven't noticed any visible change in my hair so far (it's been about a month), but for the first time I've been able to grow my nails! I used to wear acrylic nails because my natural nails were horrible, but silica is helping me to grow out the acrylic damage and finally grow long and strong nails for the first time. I also noticed that my skin has a natural glow to it now. August 6, 2013
Easy choice Noticed a change in my nails quickly after taking this for only 3 weeks. I will be adding this to my daily routine. June 26, 2013
great product I love this, stronger finger nails and hair. June 13, 2013
It works hair, nails and skin stronger. May 3, 2013
