Hubner Silicea Gel review
I used to use hair, nail and skin vitamins a few years ago, but stopped because I either didn't see too much of a difference. I am trying to grow my hair longer so I thought I might get back into hair, nail and skin supplements again. I did a quick internet search and I found people saying good things about Hübner silicea, so I had a look around and I bought this twin pack of the gel for $50. Each individual 500ml container cost around $34.99 each so I though this was a good deal.
I didn't want to go for the gel originally, I prefer to pop a pill and get it over with, but there was a pack of 60 tablets that you have to take three times a day, or there was a pack of 30 tablets that you take 1-2 tablets a day and both of those backs were approximately $30-$35. Since this twin pack has about 66 serves in it, I thought it was the way to go.
Above is the back of the box, and below is one of the two bottles of gel that come in the pack.
I was a little surprised when I first opened the bottle, I knew this was a gel, but for some reason I was expecting a liquid. The instructions say to put 15ml, or approximately a tea spoon, into a glass of water or a glass of juice. It is recommended to do this once a day.
As you can see from the above photos, the gel is clear with a slight clouded look. Once you mix it into the water, the water goes a little cloudy. There is no taste to this liquid, but you can feel that the texture of the water becomes a little thicker.
So far so good, this is my third day of drinking this and I will try to keep it up. It normally takes a few months to start seeing any significant results, but this routine isn't hard and will be easy to maintain. It also encourages you to drink more water!
Does anyone else use this?
Two month update:
I must admit, I have not been drinking this every day, I was very good for the first few weeks but then slacked off a little, and now I drink it most days. It has been two months and I have not noticed any difference in my nails or skin, but I have noticed that my hair seems to be growing faster than usual, I am getting a lot more regrowth and I need to get my hair cut slightly more frequently than before. I'm not sure what differences I should be seeing in my skin, but I do predict that in a few more months when my nails have completely grown out, I may start noticing a difference with them.
