I'm taking a new Hair, Skin, and Nails supplement that has the following ingredients

Carrot Oil, Wheat Germ Oil, Borage Seed Oil, Fish Oil, Brewers Yeast

Are any of these harmful when taking herbs and supplements? I thought Brewers Yeast might not be the best thing, but a bunch of my family members have been taking this and saw great results so I'd like to do the same.

I'd be concerned with the Brewer's yeast if you are worried about yeast infections. Also, make sure the fish oil is of a good quality. Since Lymies need to worry about Mercury toxicity and some lower quality fish oil has been found to contain Mercury.... I encourage you to do some research -- I'm no expert -- but Google is my best friend lately...

Hi Woodswalker,

I called and they said the Brewers Yeast is inactive and works as Vitamin B. Unfortunately, they couldn't tell me anything about the Fish Oil.

I agree with you, google has been my best friend lately too!

Bella, they sound pretty good. I'd try it and see if you feel a major diff. once taking it. I don't think the Brewers yeast will be much of a problem since it's not active. I would love to know what the product is.
