Hair, Skin and Nails capsules

Co Q10 (Coenzyme Q10) 30mg

Coenzyme Q10 (CoQ10) is a naturally occurring antioxidant in your body. CoQ10 is essential for the growth and maintenance of your cells. 

As you become older, your body produces less CoQ10. CoQ10 levels appear to be lower in patients suffering from specific illnesses, such as heart disease, and in those using cholesterol-lowering medicines known as statins. 

CoQ10 supplements may help treat illnesses such as congestive heart failure and migraine prevention. CoQ10 is regarded as safe and has few adverse effects.

Hair Benefits

Although CoQ10 is commonly known for its cardiovascular benefits, some studies have linked CoQ10 with enhanced cellular energy and blood flow, which may support the high energy needs of your hair follicles. CoQ10 may also activate the gene that makes various keratins for hair, particularly those that are decreased with age.

Skin Benefits

CoQ10 appears to have an important function in maintaining healthy skin. Its abundant antioxidant properties revitalise the skin, shield it from external stressors, and assist in moisture retention. It also balances out skin tone, tightens up the skin, and lessens dullness. Additionally, it protects the skin against lipid peroxidation, a process by which free radicals harm cell membranes. 

Nail Benefits

CoQ10, which is high in antioxidants and can aid in the production of energy in cells, may also help prevent the development of dry and brittle nails due to insufficient moisture. CoQ10 regenerates more antioxidants, such as vitamin C. Vitamin C is required for collagen production, a protein that offers shape, strength, and integrity to several tissues and serves as the foundation of fingernails.

Vitamin E 12mg

Vitamin E is a fat-soluble vitamin necessary for healthy blood, skin, brain, and reproductive systems and reproduction. 

Free radicals are created when your body breaks down food or is exposed to radiation and tobacco smoke. They may cause heart disease, cancer, and other illnesses. Vitamin E is rich in antioxidants. However, keep in mind that the supplement may not offer the same benefits as antioxidants found naturally in food.

Hair Benefits

Most claims made regarding vitamin E's benefits for healthy hair centre around its antioxidant abilities. These emphasise the idea that it might lessen cell deterioration and enhance hair development. Some claim that vitamin E can also help restore the shine lost by damaged hair. 

Research including 38 individuals experiencing hair loss investigated the impact of vitamin E in reducing this loss. According to the study, compared to a placebo, one of the vitamin E's components did help the participants' hair grow.

Skin Benefits

Vitamin E is an antioxidant that fights free radical damage. It is also a very hydrating molecule since it acts as both a humectant (absorbs water into the skin) and an emollient (moisturises the skin). Vitamin E also strengthens the skin barrier function and has hydrating and healing properties. 

According to a review published in the International Wound Journal, vitamin E may assist in wound healing. It appears to affect wounds with methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) infections by altering cellular signalling, and gene expression.

Nail Benefits

Vitamin E improves the cuticles and nails by hydrating and nourishing them, much like the skin on the rest of our body. Since vitamin E is an antioxidant, it helps stop free radical damage. Vitamin E not only moisturises the dry nail beds that require it but also helps prevent cuticles from splitting.

Vitamin K 0.075mg

Vitamin K is a group of vitamins found in green vegetables like broccoli, spinach, and kale. It is an essential vitamin that the body needs for bodily processes including blood clotting and bone growth. 

Vitamin K is frequently used to treat blood clotting problems or to counteract the effects of warfarin, or thinning of the blood. It can also be used to treat diabete, osteoporosis, sports performance, and several other illnesses. However, more research is needed to prove some of these claims.

Hair Benefits

Vitamin K is a vitamin that supports healthy hair and may help with hair growth and regeneration. It may assist hair development and prevent hair loss caused by scalp calcification. Scalp calcification occurs when your scalp absorbs more calcium than it should. As a result, your blood vessels get congested and oxygen cannot reach the hair follicle.

Vitamin K may aid in hair development by lowering the risk of scalp calcification and promoting the regular flow of oxygen to the hair follicles

Skin Benefits

Vitamin K is a powerful antioxidant and an important ingredient in supporting beautiful and healthy skin by preventing the damaging effects of free radicals. Free radicals are caused by smoke, pollution, and exposure to the sun's UV rays. 

It also appears to have a role in controlling cell development and tissue rejuvenation which are essential for maintaining softer, more youthful-looking skin.

Nail Benefits

Vertical nail ridges or weak nails may be signs that your body lacks calcium. Since Vitamin K is essential for bone development and regulates calcium in the body, it may aid in promoting nail growth, strength, and shine of the nails.

Selenium 0.55mg

Selenium is a component of several enzymes and proteins known as selenoproteins, which assist to create DNA and protect cells from damage and viruses. These proteins are also involved in reproduction and thyroid hormone metabolism. Selenium is a trace mineral and the body only requires a tiny quantity.

It is also a potent antioxidant that fights oxidative stress and aids in protecting your body against chronic diseases like cancer and heart disease.

Hair Benefits

Selenium offers several advantages for hair. It destroys the fungus that causes dandruff, which is why it's used in many dandruff treatments. It is also required for the creation of thyroid hormones, which assist to regulate hair growth. 

Free radicals may be a factor in the deterioration of hair follicles. According to a 2008 clinical trial, selenium promotes the body's production of antioxidants that fight free radicals.

Skin Benefits

Selenium is also good for skin health. It aids in shielding cell membranes from pigmentation, inflammation, and UV damage

It is one of the greatest 'natural' anti-ageing solutions. That's because it's an antioxidant and can protect skin cells from the damaging effects of free radicals. The antioxidant selenium not only reduces inflammation but may also boost immunity. This may aid in the control of Propionibacterium acnes, the microbe that causes acne.

Nail Benefits

Selenium also helps to keep nails healthy and strong. It promotes the use of iodine, which is necessary for thyroid function and is known to control the growth of both your nails and hair.

Vitamin B7 0.05mg

Vitamin B7, sometimes referred to as vitamin H or Biotin, is a water-soluble vitamin, and one of the B complex vitamins that aid in the body's ability to turn food into energy. 

Most people get enough biotin from a healthy diet, but there have been several claims that increasing your biotin intake will help balance your blood sugar, promote good hair, skin, and nails, and support a healthy pregnancy.

Hair Benefits

Hair loss is one of the most obvious signs of biotin deficiency. Although studies have not shown that biotin helps stop hair loss, the vitamin appears to promote healthier hair. 

In a 2012 study, women who self-reported hair loss for six months were randomly assigned to either biotin-containing hair supplements or placebos. Those who received the hair growth supplement reported an improvement in overall hair volume, scalp coverage, and thickness after the therapy. The placebo group, however, showed no discernible improvement.

Skin Benefits

One of the symptoms of a B7 deficiency in humans is red, scaly rashes. This vitamin helps to keep the skin's mucous membranes healthy.  Additionally, biotin is required for the metabolism of fat, which is necessary for keeping good skin.

Nail Benefits

It has been shown that biotin increases nail strength and health. According to some research, taking a supplement containing 2.5 milligrammes per day for six months boosted nail thickness by 25%. A daily dosage of biotin helps lessen splitting and breaking in adults with brittle fingernails.

Vitamin B9 (Folic Acid) 0.2 mg

Folate is a water-soluble Vitamin B9 that can be found in a variety of foods. These are more readily absorbed than those obtained from food sources. Folate helps in protein metabolism and aids in the formation of DNA and RNA (ribonucleic acid), which converts DNA into protein.

Folic acid is required for the breakdown of homocysteine, an amino acid that, in high doses, can be harmful to the body. Additionally, it is necessary for optimal red blood cell production in foetus growth during pregnancy. 

Hair Benefits

Folic acid aids in encouraging hair growth, increasing volume, and even reducing the rate of premature greying. It accomplishes this by speeding up the body's cell-production mechanisms. Taking supplements to make up for a folate deficiency may encourage hair growth. 

Skin Benefits

Folic acid maintains the skin's natural barrier function, which enhances skin hydration and decreases skin dryness. It reduces the signs of premature ageing by keeping healthy collagen production. Along with other powerful antioxidants, folate helps to lower the severity of acne as it works to eliminate toxins from your body.

Topically applied folic acid has also been shown to diminish some of the visible indications of UV exposure, such as lowering DNA damage to afflicted skin, enhancing firmness, and reducing wrinkle severity.

Nail Benefits

Folic acid deficiency can cause nail ridges. When your folate levels are low, there may also be discolouration. Folic acid will help you have stronger, healthier, and shinier nails. In essence, folic acid promotes cell proliferation, which promotes nail growth.

Vitamin B12 0.0025mg

Vitamin B12, commonly known as cobalamin, is a nutrient your body needs but cannot create. It is naturally found in animal products or can be taken as a supplement.

Vitamin B12 is important for red blood cell creation, DNA synthesis, and supporting the regular operation of your nerve cells. Additionally, it can increase your energy, enhance your memory, and aid in heart disease prevention.

Hair Benefits

Hair follicles need oxygen to grow. Healthy red blood cells deliver oxygen around the body. When vitamin B12 levels in the diet are low, hair follicles may not receive the oxygen and nutrients they need to grow thicker hair.

Skin Benefits

Vitamin B12 may be used topically for skin improvement as it lessens inflammation, dryness, and acne. Topical Vitamin B12 is also occasionally used to treat eczema and psoriasis. It helps repair skin damage as its a requirement for cell growth. It may refresh your skin and give it a more youthful glow, and can also stop hyperpigmentation by evening out your skin tone. 

Nail Benefits

Vitamin B12 is also necessary for strong and healthy nails. Nail health can be directly affected by iron deficiency or anaemia, which can cause thinning and whitening of the nails. Vitamin B12 allows the body to absorb iron, ensuring that adequate red blood cells are produced.

Irish Sea Moss Powder 50mg

Irish moss (Chondrus crispus) is a type of algae or seaweed found along the Atlantic Ocean's coasts in Britain, Europe, and North America.

Seaweeds such as Irish moss can have significant health benefits. Iodine, a crucial vitamin for the thyroid, is found in seaweed in high concentrations. Iodine aids in the thyroid's production of hormones that regulate bone formation, nerves, and metabolism.

Hair Benefits

Hair loss is a result of low iron. Because Irish moss is high in iron, it effectively prevents hair loss by addressing an iron deficiency. However, more research is needed to prove this claim. Additionally, it has a lot of vitamin E, which promotes hair development. 

The sebaceous glands on your scalp secrete sebum, which moisturises the scalp and prevents dandruff from developing on your hair. But occasionally, this action is disturbed by a vitamin A deficiency. Irish moss contains Vitamin A, which enhances sebum production.

Skin Benefits

Sea moss contains vitamins and minerals packed with properties like gelatin and may be used to treat conditions including eczema, psoriasis, dermatitis, and burns. Citrulline-arginine, a substance found in Irish moss, has been found in studies to improve cell development and metabolism. 

Irish moss also contains amino acids necessary for collagen production and proteins. Collagen is the substance that gives hair its fluffy texture and makes skin smooth.

Nail Benefits

The amount of nutrients and minerals in sea moss appears to help build strong and healthy nails. Its iodine content may also help promote healthy thyroid function necessary for hair and nail growth and development. However, more research is needed to prove these claims.

Vitamin D3 400iu 0.010mg

Vitamin D3, or cholecalciferol, is a fat-soluble vitamin essential for building and maintaining healthy bones. Vitamin D must be present for your body to properly absorb calcium, the most abundant mineral necessary for bone health. Vitamin D's anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, and neuroprotective qualities also help the immune system, skeletal muscle contraction, and brain cell function.

Vitamin D3 is also present in the skin, but not in an active state. Only exposure to sunlight may make it active.

The skin's inactive 7-dehydrocholesterol is converted to cholecalciferol by UVB radiation. The kidneys and liver transform cholecalciferol into its active form, 1,25 dihydroxycholecalciferol (Vitamin D3). Approximately five to ten minutes of bare skin contact with the sun at least twice or three times each week can create a significant amount of Vitamin D3.

Hair Benefits

Some studies have demonstrated that a lack of vitamin D3 results in hair loss. 

Vitamin D3 promotes hair growth by aiding in the creation of new hair follicles. According to a 2012 Japanese study, vitamin D3 stimulates the growth of new hair follicles and revitalises inactive ones. Alopecia Areata, an autoimmune form of hair loss, is associated with a lack of vitamin D3. It was discovered by comparing serum Vitamin D3 levels in affected and unaffected people.

Skin Benefits

Vitamin D keeps the calcium levels in our bodies balanced, but it also has many other jobs, such as protecting the health of our skin. Generally speaking, a body with a complete supply of vitamin D will benefit from better skin health. It regulates a variety of physiological processes in the skin, including barrier maintenance, immunological responses, and cell death.

Vitamin D’s antioxidant properties can be used to combat harmful environmental oxidants that speed up ageing. Additionally, it can regulate cell shedding and stop the buildup of dead skin cells on the skin's surface that causes psoriasis plaques.

Nail Benefits

Your nails may be brittle and fragile if you don't get enough vitamin D. Vitamin D promotes healthy nails and lowers the risk of nail peeling and chipping, both of which are frequently caused by dietary deficiencies. Vitamin D can regulate calcium levels in the body which is a crucial factor in having healthy nails. 

Inulin 150mg

Inulin is a prebiotic fibre that plants produce. It can be found in a variety of fruits, grains, and vegetables, including wheat, soybeans, garlic, onions, and bananas. Inulin is a popular fat alternative and sweetener. It can replace eggs in baked products and be added to ice cream to avoid the formation of ice crystals and lessen the fat content. 

Inulin fibre provides several benefits, including improved absorption of specific minerals in the stomach, specifically calcium and magnesium. 

Hair Benefits

Inulin is a great ingredient for moisture retention to keep hair strands hydrated because of its long sugar chain. Additionally, it smoothes and cures hair strands to make them supple, lustrous, and silky.

Skin Benefits

Inulin is a natural humectant, which acts like a water magnet, pulling moisture from the surroundings into the skin and keeping it moisturised. By creating a thin protective film layer on the skin, inulin also functions as a skin-conditioning agent, leaving the skin soft and smooth. Additionally, it aids in reversing the effects of age, dryness, and redness. 

When applied topically, it strengthens the barrier, keeps the skin young, and promotes the growth of probiotics.

Nail Benefits

Somepeople  may be calcium deficient, which can cause brittle and dry nails. Calcium deficiency is caused by a diet lacking calcium or improper calcium absorption. Inulin may help to promote stronger and healthier nails since it helps enhance the body's absorption of calcium.

Vitamin C (Ascorbic Acid) 40mg

Vitamin C (ascorbic acid) is a vitamin your body needs to produce blood vessels, cartilage, muscle, and bone collagen. 

The antioxidant Vitamin C shields your cells from the damaging effects of free radicals, which are chemicals your body produces as it breaks down food, and is exposed to cigarette smoke or radiation from the sun, X-rays, or other sources. Additionally, Vitamin C helps iron storage and absorption.

Hair Benefits

Vitamin C is required for the production of collagen, which is a key component of strong hair. It increases hair development, stops hair loss, and supports healthy hair. Dry hair and split ends can be a sign of vitamin C insufficiency. 

DHT, a hormone that leads to hair loss, may interact with vitamin C. The hair follicle becomes smaller and shrinks as a result of DHT. DHT production is reduced by vitamin C, which suggests that it may aid in preventing hair loss.

Skin Benefits

Vitamin C is an essential chemical for collagen production and has antioxidant properties. Ascorbic acid has positive effects on skin cells when consumed or applied topically, and some research suggests that vitamin C may help prevent and repair ultraviolet (UV)-induced photodamage. However, more research is needed to know the full effects of vitamin C.

A few scientific studies have shown that vitamin C helps reduce wrinkles. According to one study, using a vitamin C formulation daily for at least three months reduced the visibility of both fine and noticeable wrinkles on the face and neck while also enhancing the texture and look of the skin.

Vitamin C may help protect the skin from damaging UV radiation when used with a broad-spectrum sunscreen. Clinical studies have shown that combining vitamin C with additional topical substances, such as ferulic acid and vitamin E, can help reduce redness and protect the skin from long-term damage caused by damaging sun rays.

Nail Benefits

Vitamin C helps to keep our nails healthy by strengthening our skin, connective tissue, bones, and blood vessel walls. Vitamin C prevents brittle and weak nails by promoting the creation of collagen and the growth of nails and strengthening them.

Bladderwrack 4:1 Extract 10.6mg

Bladderwrack is a brown seaweed that has gained popularity due to its high nutritional content and anti-inflammatory qualities. Its scientific name is "Fucus vesiculosus," and it grows on the northern Atlantic and Pacific ocean shores. 

Because of its high nutritional density (particularly iodine), bladderwrack is frequently used as a supplement in complementary medicine to help treat illnesses like iodine deficiency, joint pain, ageing skin, digestive problems, and thyroid dysfunction.

Hair Benefits

Bladderwrack offers many advantages for hair because it is full of antioxidants like vitamins A and C, which shield hair from damaging environmental oxidants found in pollutants like smog. These antioxidants also help protect hair from the damaging UV radiation found in sunlight

Additionally, bladderwrack is an excellent source of the amino acids needed to produce proteins like keratin and collagen, which are essential for the formation of new hair and constitute the fundamental framework of hair strands. Bladderwrack is also a great source of iron, phosphorus, and other elements that support hair development.

Skin Benefits

Topical treatments of bladderwrack have been used to treat burns, cellulite, and other skin conditions. 

Fucoidan, one of the antioxidants found in bladderwrack, has been proven in preliminary studies to encourage collagen production in the skin, which may help reduce the appearance of cellulite, speed up skin healing, and prevent premature skin ageing. 

Nail Benefits

Iodine, a trace element that promotes thyroid function, is abundant in bladderwrack. It could support the proper thyroid function required for the production and growth of hair and nails. However, further study is required to back up these claims.

Hyaluronic Acid 30mg

Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring substance found in the fluids of the eyes and joints. It works as a lubricant and a cushion in the joints and other tissues. 

Hyaluronic acid comes in several different forms and is used cosmetically. It appears to influence how the body reacts to injury and aid in the reduction of swelling. Hyaluronic acid is also frequently taken orally and used topically for a variety of ailments, including UTIs, acid reflux, dry eyes, wound healing, and ageing skin.

Hair Benefits

Hyaluronic acid is a humectant. It functions by absorbing moisture from the air and bringing it to the skin's surface. Hyaluronic acid's humectant-binding abilities work similarly on hair fibres as they do on the skin, enabling the hair fibres to hold and seal moisture from products. 

Additionally, it aids in sealing the cuticle to stop outside moisture from penetrating and causing frizzy hair and curl loss.

Skin Benefits

Hyaluronic acid is one of the most effective moisturising substances used in skincare. It is a humectant, which means that it acts like a sponge to draw moisture from the environment to the top layers of the skin. 

Hyaluronic acid molecules are so good at hydrating the skin and keeping it moist and dewy all day because they can attract up to 1,000 times their weight in water. It can also help smooth out the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles by increasing the water content of the skin.

Nail Benefits

Weak, brittle, or striated (ridged) nails are signs of an amino acid deficiency. As we become older, these symptoms may get worse as our bodies capacity to produce hyaluronic acid declines with age. 

When combined with water, hyaluronic acid forms a transparent, wet gel-like material and works to hydrate the cuticle, promoting more healthy nail development. Additionally, it assists in moisturising and shielding the skin that surrounds the cuticle, strengthening its barrier capabilities and guarding against dryness and cracking.
