Below we've broken down the main functions of our Hair Skin & Nails Formula and the benefits it can provide.
As we age, we slowly break down the collagen and elastin in our skin. Studies show that strands of hair containing more silicon, a key ingredient in our Hair, Skin, and Nails supplement, are less likely to fall out and have a brighter appearance.
Supplementation may improve brittle nails- horsetail extract contains a high amount of silicic acid and silicates, which play a role in nail strength and growth.
Our bodies produce collagen on a regular basis, but it slows with age. One double blind study had 69 women between the ages of 35 and 55 take a collagen supplement for 4 weeks. The results showed skin elasticity improvements and no negative side effects.
The human body can lose 50-100 strands of hair per day and fingernails can grow about 0.1 millimeters per day. Our proprietary nutrient blend contains horsetail plant extract, a perennial herb which has been shown to support hair and nail health. We combine this plant extract with collagen that may assist in reduction of wrinkles by maintaining normal moisture levels in aging skin. Research has connected CoQ10 with supporting cellular energy and blood flow.
