There is truth in the old adage that beauty comes from within. Microgenics Hair Skin Nails is a quality formula with vitamins and minerals specifically designed to support collagen production. Collagen is the most abundant protein in the human body, and is the substance that holds the body together. It acts as a supporting structure, a bit like a scaffold, and anchors cells to each other. It is what gives our skin strength and elasticity, keeps our nails strong, and our hair lustrous. As we age, our bodies produce less collagen, and the structural integrity of our skin, nails and hair declines. As a result, lines and wrinkles form in our skin, nails become more brittle and hair starts to lose its shine and become thinner. Microgenics Hair Skin Nails contains several nutrients that are vital to collagen production, and may help hair look glossy, skin radiant and nails healthy again.
Biotin for strong nails and healthy hair
Biotin is a vitamin that is sometimes referred to as vitamin B7 or vitamin H, and is a building block for collagen. Research shows that nail thickness improves in those with brittle nails after taking a biotin supplement. As it takes nails 3-4 months to grow from bottom to top, it may take that time frame before results are noticed.1,2,3
Biotin is also associated with healthy, strong hair, and a deficiency may lead to hair loss Biotin deficiency can result in red, scaly skin rashes around body orifices4 and supplementing with biotin can help improve skin health.
Vitamin C to support skin health
Vitamin C plays a part in the production of collagen5 and can thus help support healthy hair, skin and nails. It is also an antioxidant and protects the skin against free radical damage. Free radicals can damage the skin and speed up the ageing process, resulting in a lined and wrinkled skin. Vitamin C neutralises those free radicals and thus helps protect the skin from damage.
Silica to support connective tissues
Silica is found in all connective tissue. It is a building block for collagen, and reinforces the structure of hair and skin. Low levels of silica have been associated with brittle nails, weak and dry hair, poor wound healing and skin conditions. Clinical research has shown that women with sun-damaged skin who supplemented with 10mg silica per day noticed after 20 weeks a decrease in skin roughness and less brittle nails and hair compared to the placebo group.6
Iron to transport oxygen
Iron is required for the creation of red blood cells and is an integral part of haemoglobin. Haemoglobin transports oxygen around the body. Impaired oxygen transport can result in brittle, peeling or ridged nails7, hair loss8 and poor wound healing.9
Milk Thistle is an antioxidant
Milk Thistle is high in antioxidants and may help to promote healthy skin. Research has found that milk thistle can help improve inflammatory skin conditions.10
Zinc to support collagen production
Zinc plays an important role in the production of collagen, supporting a strong and flexible skin. As we age, the skin starts to lose its strength and flexibility, and this contributes to the development of lines and wrinkles. By supplementing with zinc, we can help improve skin health.
Zinc is required for the normal division of hair follicle cells, leading to healthier hair
growth. Below optimal levels of zinc can impact on hair growth. Data from the
Australian Bureau of Statistics indicates that more than one in three Australian
males and one in ten Australian females don’t obtain the recommended amounts
of zinc from their daily diets.11
