Although there are many different supplements which will help help be strong, healthy and beautiful, in additional to Vitamin B, the following three are considered important for overall healthy hair:

Vitamin D
It not only key for healthy bones and hair, it may lower cancer risk in some cases.  Human skin makes Vitamin D when exposed to sunlight.  Vitamin D can be gotten from foods like fatty fish 350-450IU per servings, egg yolks, 41 IU, and fortified milk 115 IU.

A study done by the Institute of Medicine (IOM) panel recommends 600 IU a day.  Worried you're not getting enough Vitamin D?  You can get a test to see if you need more of the supplement.

Fish Oil
The Omega-3 fatty acids in fish oil are great for heart health and may reduce arthritis sympotms and even the risk of certain cancers amongst other benefits.  Recommended doses vary depending upon why you're taking it.  Talk to your doctor for more information.

Calcium
This mineral is essential for building and maintaining strong bones.  The IOM recommends that women ages 50 and under get 1,000 mg daily from foods and supplements. 

Over 50 and up your daily intake to 1,200 mg. 

Getting too much calcium in supplement form may increase risk of kidney stones, though, so stick to 2,500 mg or less.

Do you take all three of these supplements?  What else do you take to increase your overall health of your hair, skin and body?
