The ancient Greeks believed that if you were physically beautiful you were in harmony with the universe, and that one’s own physical beauty was a miniature representation of the cosmos.
Healthy, beautiful, shiny hair and nails can be yours provided you give your body the nutrients it needs to make them. It’s called beauty from the inside out and it’s easier than you might think!
If your eyes are the windows to your soul, then your hair, skin and nails are windows to your overall health.
Healthy hair, skin and nails are derived from dynamic, living tissue, and are dependent upon adequate protein, minerals, vitamins, essential fatty acids, complex carbohydrates and water. And, like all living tissue they need proper nourishment. While most people try and improve the appearance of these tissues from the outside alone, the real key to healthy skin, beautiful hair, and strong nails is building them from the inside out through good nutrition and key dietary supplements.
"I recommend supplements to patients who are looking to address certain skin, nail, or hair issues," Dr. Marina Peredo, assistant clinical professor of dermatology at Mount Sinai Hospital, told Daily Makeover in 2013. "Biotin encourages the production of protein for nail growth when absorbed in the core of the nail bed, where the cells are generated. In addition, it also stimulates new hair growth and promotes healthier texture by protecting against dryness, scalp flaking and increasing elasticity of the hair's cortex to prevent breakage. I recommend it to my patients who have any concerns with thinning hair or brittle nails."
Do you find your hair is starting to lack lustre? Is your skin looking less than perfect, or are your nails becoming weak, brittle, or starting to split? If so, your body may well be calling out for more zinc! Hair, skin and nails are all made of connective tissue, which is constantly renewing as old cells are shed, and new cells grow to replace them. Zinc is needed for building new connective tissue, and is essential for maintaining healthy skin, hair and nails.
Hair, Skin and Nails contains zinc, together with nutrients that may support healthy tissue, such as silica, biotin, vitamin B2 and niacin. Silica is an especially important nutrient as it concentrates in the nails, hair and skin to assist collagen formation and build the structural framework for the skin.
The nutrients in Hair, Skin and Nails may help to maintain your skin smoothness and texture, strengthen soft and brittle nails and support healthy hair - leaving you looking and feeling your most radiant!
