Bamboo extract works for me
I have been taking the Bamboo extract for several months now. In combination with the hair skin and nail tablets and there is a definate difference in my hair and nails. I have lots of new hair growth around my temples and my nails grow super fast. I am very pleased with the way these work. On my last order I added Biotin to my routine to see if this adds more growth. My hair and nails are so much stronger, thanks to Swanson vitamins!

It really works
After using Bamboo Extract for a couple of months, my wife reports that her nails are much stronger and her hair is thicker and stronger. This product really does work.

Great For Hair Skin, Nails!
After a few days my skin became soft & glowy. After a few weeks my nails grew stronger. After a few months my hair became thick and strong. This is my number one beauty secret. Drink lots of water and take it with 1000mg vitamin C for maximum results. I will take this forever!

Right away my nails became harder from only one pill. I am amazed, even biotin didn't do that for me. I love this Bamboo silica!

Read about the many benefits of silica and the potency found within bamboo. So excited to see what is doing for my four year old and all of my family. Plan on taking it for life.

MUCH MORE THAN PANDA FOOD
For at least 3 or 4 decades I have known that Silica is a terrific compliment to all the nutrients that feed one's bones, teeth, hair, and nails. . . . all the body's hard tissue. It is easily noticeable that ample silica is wonderful for hair and nail quality and growth. We used to use a common horsetail grass herbal form, but now I read that Bamboo is ten times as potent. I like this potent and effective form of Silica from bamboo. Also, I have been reading lately that drinking natural mineral waters that are high in silica are effective ways to remove toxic aluminum from the body. The studies that I read talked about drinking a quart of high silica mineral water daily, which produced significant aluminum lowering results. While I like natural mineral water, and I enjoy drinking San Pellegrino (my personal favorite) regularly, I wanted a more sure source of silica. My kids and friends have always told me that my fingernails should be registered as lethal weapons, because they are so incrediby sturdy and strong, and they grow at an incredibly fast rate. I believe I have found my Silica source in Swanson's Bamboo Extract capsules. Those Pandas are smart critters.

Great product and price
This product is an excellent source of silica. I have found it to be effective on hair, nails and skin.

I have read about silica being an overlooked nutrient that is necessary for so many things. The horsetail extract forms were getting too expensive, I was glad to get this higher potency product at such a good price. The first effect I noticed was that my skin seems more opaque, it seems thicker. The next thing I have noticed is my hair is definitely thicker. Have taken this regularly for several months. It is probably helping me build muscle and connective tissue at my new, very physical job.

I bought this primarily for my hair--it has gotten thinner as I've grown older. I've been taking it for about a month, but haven't seen any difference in my hair so far--I know I have to give it more time. What I have experienced is that I have had a mood change. I just feel much happier and content. It's hard to explain because I didn't notice it until all-of-a-sudden I just felt better, physically and emotionally. I know it's the bamboo because I haven't changed anything or taken anything new. I highly recommend this product.

Amazingly Soft Skin
I haven't been taking this long enough to know if my hair and nails will improve, but my skin is so much softer. I only give this product 4 stars because I am not convinced of the safety of supplemental silica. There can be adverse effects from other forms, and I suspect bamboo silica is even less studied. I hope it proves to be safe because I LOVE how my skin feels.

No Mag Sterate - Yea
Excellent to have a Swanson's product without Magnesium Sterate. Good quality.

I stopped using this for a couple of months and I noticed a difference in my nails and hair. This is going to be a staple for me from now on.

Swanson: Lower Dose?
The amount of Bamboo silica in this supplement is far more silica than what the average human loses in a day, so I only take the supplement 3x/week. I think Swanson should at least offer a second bamboo supplement with a lower dose of silica. Your body doesn't store the extra silica so the "extra" silica is not effective. At three times per week it does work though. I would gladly take it every day if I could get it at a lower dose. Thanks.

Wonderful Silica Supplement
I ordered this product experimentally, as there have been few endorsements (other than by Asians, for whom bamboo is a standard supplement known to help maintain health). In Western lingo, bamboo is outstanding for being able to provide silica to the body's system. I had tried other products to achieve this, but I can assure you that Swanson's bamboo formulation has worked better than any of them to achieve the results I sought from silica supplementation: i.e., Increase bone density, improve calcium use in the body, boost collagen formation for elasticity and flexibility, and strengthening heart and arteries. It helps to replace silica lost from the current food supply. Swanson's product is by far less expensive, too.

Best nail product
Weak nails have always been a problem. I started taking this regularly and noticed a marked improvement in the strength of my nails. I ran out and didn't order for about a week and my nails began to soften again. Thanks for a great, inexpensive product.

This is awesome!!
My nails have always been fragile - all my life. They were so thin that when I would wash my hair, sometimes a hair would cut a nail. I gave up growing my nails long and always kept them trimmed short. I tried this product, and for the first time EVER, my nails are very sturdy and healthy. It is really amazing!! Since I'm not used to long nails, I've accidentally bumped my nails on my desk, the wall, etc., and immediately looked at them thinking I'd broken one - but no damage!! It only took a few days to start seeing results, too. This is an excellent product for anyone with fragile nails!!!
