Ingredient Profile

Vitamin A:

Improves resistance to infection and assist in the growth and repair of body tissues, including muscle.

Vitamin C:

Offers multiple antioxidant benefits, boosts immune health, and enhances collagen formation.

  • Vitamin C has also been shown to increase fat loss and nitric oxide production.

Vitamin D:

Promotes calcium absorption in the gut and maintains adequate serum calcium and phosphate concentrations to enable normal mineralization of bone and to prevent hypocalcemic tetany.

  • Vitamin D has other roles in the body, including modulation of cell growth, neuromuscular and immune function, and reduction of inflammation.

Vitamin E:

Oral vitamin E increases blood circulation, thus improving the amount of blood flowing through the hair and nail-growth structures.

  • Your nails and your hair are both created from dead keratin cells. The dead cells accumulate as a result of activity in the hair and nail-growth structures.
  • The activity, consisting of cell formation and division, would not be possible without an adequate blood supply.
  • Vitamin E may also decrease levels of creatine kinase and malondialdehyde, markers of mechanical and oxidative muscle damage. Hence vitamin E is critical for muscle recovery.

Vitamin B3:

Helps the body make various sex and stress-related hormones in the adrenal glands and other parts of the body.

  • Niacin helps improve circulation, and it has been shown to suppress inflammation.

Vitamin B6:

Helps the body make several neurotransmitters, chemicals that carry signals from one nerve cell to another.

  • It is needed for normal brain development and function, and helps the body make the hormones serotonin and norepinephrine, which influence mood, and melatonin, which helps regulate the body clock.

Biotin:

A B-complex vitamin that helps repair damaged hair, nails and dry skin.

  • It works with the other B vitamins to metabolize the food you eat, and this in turn nourishes your hair, nails and skin, as well as other areas.
  • According to the University of Maryland Medical Center, this vitamin is often recommended for people who have weak, brittle or splitting hair and finger or toenails.
  • Getting enough biotin helps to prevent hair loss, dry or scaling skin and other symptoms associated with a deficiency of this vitamin.

Pantothenic Acid:

Assists in the production of red blood cells, as well as sex and stress-related hormones produced in the adrenal glands. Pantothenic acid is also important in maintaining a healthy digestive tract, and it helps the body use other vitamins, particularly riboflavin.

  • According to Gene Bruno of the Huntington College of Health Sciences, a deficiency of this vitamin can harm your hair follicles, which may weaken them and lead to hair loss.
  • Pantothenic acid is often taken in conjunction with the other members of the B vitamin family, and maintaining adequate levels of these can improve the health of your hair and help prevent it from thinning.

Zinc:

Zinc is a key part of your skin’s dietary defense squad. The mineral lessens the formation of damaging free radicals and protects skin’s lipids (fats) and fibroblasts—the cells that make collagen, your skin’s support structure—when skin is exposed to UV light, pollution and other skin-agers.

  • Zinc also facilitates hair and tissue growth and repair and helps maintain the oil glands that surround hair follicles.


Beautiful Hair Complex

Collagen:

Collagen is one of the most abundant proteins in the body and is necessary for the successful maintenance of hair, healthy cartilage, ligaments, tendons, bone and skin.

  • As you age, the natural levels of collagen present in your body decrease. Collagen, when taken as a supplement, has been shown to support and increase the body’s hair building proteins.
  • Along with soft keratin, it is responsible for skin strength and elasticity, while keeping the blood vessels strong.

L-Cysteine:

L-cysteine is one of few amino acids found in the body that can make disulfide bonds.

  • Such bonds are extremely important for giving hair its long, strong fibrous properties that hold in moisture, help maintain thickness and give each strand its shine.

L-Lysine:

L-lysine, is an essential amino acid. That means it is necessary for human health, but the body can’t manufacture it.

  • It is involved in the absorption of iron and zinc, both of which are required by the body for normal hair growth.
  • L-lysine appears to help the body absorb calcium, and it plays an important role in the formation of collagen, a substance important for bones and connective tissues including skin, tendon, and cartilage.


Stunning Strong Nails Complex

MSM:

MSM provides the sulfur needed to produce collagen and keratin.

  • It’s also highly noted to contribute to exceptional strength and thickness of the hair and nails.

Horsetail Herb:

Horsetail is an abundant source of silica which aids in the growth and strength of nails.

  • Horsetail also contains selenium, a mineral that is essential for the proper growth of your hair, as it helps your body process iodine, which regulates hair growth as well. A deficiency in selenium can lead to slow hair growth.

Silicon:

Fingernails contain significant levels of silicon & consuming ample quantities improves health & quality of nails while protecting them against infection.


Gorgeous Glowing Skin Complex

Coconut Water:

Coconut water has a variety of healthy properties — it’s full of Omega3s, Vitamin C, minerals such as magnesium and potassium, enzymes and amino acids.

  • Coconut water contains lauric acid that helps protect against skin infections. It also contains protein called cytokines that are responsible for encouraging cell growth and cell activation.
  • The Vitamin C found in coconut water is a natural skin brightener.
  • The antioxidants found in coconut water may also protect your skin against damage from the sun.
  • Additionally, getting more vitamin C in your diet may help prevent dry skin.

Alpha Lipoic Acid:

Alpha-Lipoic Acid (ALA) is a mitochondrial fatty acid that is highly involved in energy metabolism. It is synthesized in the body and can be consumed through eating meats and minimally in some fruits/vegetables.

  • In supplement form, it has shown benefit against various forms of oxidation and inflammation. These effects carry on to benefits that protect one from heart diseases, liver diseases, diabetes, and neurological decline with age.
  • It is also a potent anti-oxidant compound. It works with mitochondria and the body’s natural anti-oxidant defenses.
  • It is also seen as an anti-aging compound since it can reverse some of the oxidant damage related effects of aging.

DMAE:

Dimethylaminoethanol, better known as DMAE, is an antioxidant membrane stabilizer.

  • When taken orally or applied topically, it helps to firm, smooth, and brighten skin.
  • It also enhances the effects of other antioxidants like alpha lipoic acid and Vitamin C.
  • As a result, DMAE works best when used in combination with other nutrients and an antioxidant base.

Lutein:

Clinically shown to improve skin elasticity and hydration to keep skin looking younger longer.

  • Lutein also helps protect the lipids, oils and fats in your skin from peroxidation.
  • Lutein may also help to protect skin from damage caused by the sun’s UV rays and pollutants found in the air.

Collagen protein is the cement that holds everything together.

Collagen is also present in all the smooth muscle tissues, blood vessels digestive tract, heart, gallbladder, kidneys and bladder holding the cells and tissues together. Collagen is even the major component of the hair and nails.
