What Is It?
Hair/Skin/Nails Ultra provides key building blocks and
nutrients to support skin elasticity and hydration, healthy
hair, and nail strength and thickness.*
Uses For Hair/Skin/Nails Ultra
Healthy Hair, Skin and Nails: Vitamin C, zinc, copper,
manganese and silica are integral collagen and keratin
cofactors, promoting skin elasticity. Optimal levels of
these nutrients, as well as folate, have been associated
with healthy hair, skin and nails. PureWay-C®, a rapidly
absorbed enhanced retention vitamin C, supports skin
resiliency and helps counter the effects of oxidative stress
along with sustained release CoQ10 complex. Niacinamide
and zinc promote immune function and healthy
inflammatory balance in the skin. The proanthocyanidins
in grape seed extract help to stabilize collagen and elastin
by moderating the proteolytic enzymes collagenase and
elastase. Clinical studies indicate that biotin may help
reinforce the keratin structure of the nails, promoting
strength and thickness. PABA supports the appearance of
healthy hair, through its effects on melanin metabolism.
BioCell Collagen® is a patented, hydrolyzed and denatured low molecular weight collagen, providing a naturally occurring matrix of hyaluronic acid
(HA), chondroitin sulfate and amino acids including
lysine, proline and hydroxyproline. These structural
components support the elasticity and firmness of skin.
Furthermore, HA attracts water, promoting hydration and
moisture retention within the dermal matrix. Case reports
have revealed that BioCell Collagen II helped moderate
the appearance of wrinkles and blemishes in the skin.*
