Boost is a supplement specially formulated to help rebuild collagen and keratin, the major building blocks of the hair, skin & nails.
As we age our body’s natural collagen and keratin depletes, leaving the hair, skin & nails vulnerable to early or accelerated damage. Poor nutrition, cosmetic products, hair products, nail extensions and the general ageing process can all have an impact on the quality of our hair, skin & nails. Boost works by delivering key micronutrients through the bloodstream. This is the best way to deliver essential nutrients to the dermis, hair follicles and the actual nail beds.
Key Ingredients in Boost:
Biotin or Vitamin B7 is known to beneficial for healthy hair, skin & nails and can help protect the skin from outbreaks of acne and dryness. Studies have shown that supplementation with biotin—the so-called ‘hair vitamin’—helps restore dry, brittle nails and promotes hair growth.
Silica is the unsung hero of hair, skin & nail health. It helps rid the body of toxins and helps carry vital nutrients to the periphery of the body conditioning and strengthening the hair, skin and nails. Silica, along with vitamin C, helps to maintain moisture in the skin and other tissues via compounds called mucopolysaccharides. Also known as glycosaminoglycans, these mucilaginous carbohydrates, together with collagen and elastin, make up our connective tissues. As we get older, our levels of silica decline so supplementation is helpful.
Zinc is a powerful antioxidant and is essential to many cellular processes involved in skin, hair and nail health. White marks on the nails can be a sign of zinc deficiency. Supplementing zinc can be very helpful for the sake of hair, skin & nail health. Stress, smoking, alcohol and vegetarian diets are resulting in more people becoming deficient in Zinc.
Vitamin C is essential for healthy collagen, healthy elastin and helps fight free radical oxidisation. In the process of evolution humans (along with fruit bats & guinea pigs) lost their ability to make their own vitamin C therefore it needs to be taken daily in the diet. Vitamin C is essential for normal collagen function and is one of the best known and researched antioxidants.
Vitamin D3 1000IU – Vitamin D deficienicy is a global epidemic. The most bioavailable form of vitamin D is D3 as used in this supplement. Vitamin D maintains bones, boosts immunity, helps reduce systemic inflammation and is cardio and neurologically protective. 1000IU is a great daily maintenance dose for anyone concerned about deficiency and for anyone who does not get regular summer sunshine on their skin.
Selenium contributes to the protection of cells from oxidative stress and selenium deficiency is known to cause hair thinning and hair loss.
Flaxseed oil is one of nature’s richest and best sources of vegetable based Omega 3 fatty acids. Flaxseed oil is beneficial for the maintenance of healthy skin, reduces skin inflammation and helps maintain the skin’s barrier function. It is ideal for people with skin dryness or eczema.
Studies have shown that brittle nail syndrome appears to abate with supplementation with a 2.5 mg dose of biotin daily or a 10 mg dose of silica. (Scheinfield N ‘Vitamins and Minerals: their role in nail health and disease’ Journal Drugs Dermatol: 2007 August p6(8) 782-7)
Silica has been shown in studies to have a positive impact on hair health with improvements in hair tensile strength (increased elasticity and break load) and hair thickness reported after daily doses of 10mg. (Wickett RR, et al. Arch Dermatol Res. 2007 Dec;299(10):499-505).
