How long does it take to notice a difference when taking vitamins/supplements?


I recently started taking Biotin to help strengthen my fingernails. Does anyone know how long it takes to start seeing improvement?

Dianegirl....thats really tough to answer as everyone is different. I think for most you hear about 2 to 3 weeks to feel or see a difference. I've been taking them for so long i wouldn't if they were working or not. Even nutrients that help hair or nails can still take a while to see anything as hair and nails grow slow for most.

Re: How long does it take to notice a difference when taking vitamins/supplements?

Hi Diane, like 6foot3, I've been taking a multi and other supplements for so long I forget how long it takes to feel the difference but I DID have cause to find out last year when I left my normal supply of food based supplements at a friend's house.

I wasn't able to return for a couple weeks, so I had to resort to taking a lesser non-food based multivitamin and by the end of that 2 weeks, I definitely could feel the LACK.

Hope this helps,
