hey nutrition buffs,

I read something about silica being an important part of healthy hair-skin-nails. Also biotin...I am unfortunately lacking in some nutritive aspect. My hair is weak and my nails are ridiculous...my skin is mostly OK but I figure, whats good for hair and nails is good for skin . Im getting to an age where I guess I should start thinking about (uuggh) wrinkle prevention too.  What are some foods/suplements which help?

Jello-o? Bone broths, I think they have collagenw hich has to be good for the skin?

 Any sugestions are appreciated.

Evening Primrose Oil is supposed to be good for hair, skin & nails.  I take 2 x 1000mg  per day but haven't found it to be particularly useful for much (I took it primarily for my acne) - apart from the dry, itchy eczema-type patches on my abdomen seem calmer when I take EPO.  I have a deep ridge on my thumbnail that causes the nail to split below the nail line and taking EPO hasn't changed it one bit!  Sorry, not a very useful reply!
