Hair, Skin and Nails Plus: Nourish from within for Healthier Hair, Skin and Nails

Hair, Skin and Nails Plus: Nourish from within for healthier hair, skin and nails

 

Buried Treasure™ Hair, Skin and Nails Plus is a natural, high-potency supplement that benefits hair, skin and nails. This bioavailable liquid multivitamin nourishes from within to promote stronger nails, lustrous hair, and vibrant skin.

Normal topical cosmetics may not fix common hair, skin and nails issues

Without proper care, nutrition, and/or supplementation, many hair, skin and nails issues can occur.

Hair becomes thin, breakable, fizzy, and dull. Nails can grow to be brittle and soft with peeling at the edges. And skin dulls with reduced elasticity and more wrinkles and/or acne breakouts.

You may think to supplement failing hair, skin and nails with topical cosmetics, but these creams and ointments don’t nourish from within.

It is important to begin within the body to ensure the tissues and proteins that form the hair, skin and nails are strong and healthy.

Specialty nutrients in Hair, Skin and Nails Plus

Hair, Skin and Nails Plus is chalked full of nutrients to provide many benefits.

The oral multivitamin contains four categories of specialty ingredients that condition hair, strengthen nails, and promote clear skin – all in one, high-potency supplement.

 

  1. High potency specialty ingredients

Phytoceramide Complex – Ceramides are natural skin-based lipids that retain moisture. This helps keep skin hydrated and texture smooth and supple to appear more youthful. It also provides strong defenses against skin diseases.

Cynatine HNS® – Is a bioavailable supplement created by Roxlor that can deliver keratin peptides to the hair and nails, promoting growth and strength while reducing hair loss.

Cartenoid Comlex (dunelilla salina) Dunaliella salina is the richest known source of dietary beta-carotene and mixed carotenoid. Beta-carotene promotes the activity of vitamin A, which is an essential vitamin for healthy skin and hair. Dunaliella salina also contains a variety of protein and amino acids, lipids, carbohydrates, vitamins and minerals.

Pycnogenol®  – Pycnogenol is created by Horphag Research and significantly improves visible signs of skin aging, fights damage caused by stress, and increases skin elasticity and hydration. It also increases the natural production of hyaluronic acid production, which binds to moisture in the skin to reduce signs of aging and help the skin look healthier.

 

  1. Organic compounds

MSM – MSM is a sulfur chemical compound found in plants, known for its anti-inflammatory properties and ability to stimulate blood circulation (1). The sulfur in MSM bonds to hair, making it stronger and encourages hair growth. It also reverses the signs of aging in the skin and reduces redness, improve some skin conditions (i.e., rosacea), and help in healing minor tissue damage (2).

PABA – PABA protects the skin free radicals and prevents DNA damage when exposures to ultraviolet (UV) radiation.

Sodium Hylaronic Acid – Sodium Hylaronic Acid is created naturally by the skin and is important for wound healing, strengthening the skin, tissue building, and reducing the signs of aging, such as wrinkles. It is well known for its contribution to maintenance of water content in skin and keeping tissue hydrated (3).

Silica Rice Chelate – Silica (also known as silicon, the trace mineral) is produced naturally by the body, but also found in plants and minerals, and is most concentrated in skin, hair, and nails. It enhances collagen production to strengthen locks and nails and to keep skin supple and wrinkle free (4). Collagen is especially important as we age to keep skin strong and prevent signs of aging.

 

  1. Vitamins and minerals

 Biotin – Biotin is part the vitamin B family that promotes healthy cell growth and metabolism of protein-building amino acids used in nail, skin and hair growth (5). It strengthens hair and nails and prevents hair loss (6).

Vitamins E and C – These vitamins are antioxidants that protect cells from free radicals and oxidative stress. They also prevents and reverses damage to the hair and skin by providing benefits like improving blood circulation in the scalp, controlling oil production, and adding moisture and shine (7).

Minerals (Calcium, Magnesium, Zinc, Selenium and Copper) – Many minerals are needed to keep hair, skin, and nails healthy. Calcium is a key component of nails. Magnesium is an important mineral for protein synthesis in the body, how keratin is produced. Zinc is involved in the healthy growth and division of cells in the hair and nails (5). Selenium is a trace element that acts together with vitamin C to provide antioxidant function in to protect the hair and nails to protect against stress and damage. Copper is an important component in melanin, which influences the color and lustrousness of skin and hair (8).

 

  1. Antioxidant plant-based ingredients

Blueberry – Berries are loaded with beneficial nutrients that benefit the nails, skin, and hair. They are full of with vitamin C, giving it strong antioxidant power to protect hair follicles against damage from free radicals. The vitamins and minerals in blueberries also helps to produce collagen to strengthen hair and prevent breakage (9).

Aloe Vera – Aloe gel comes from the Aloe Vera plant well known for its ability to heal damaged skin tissue and decrease acne inflammation. It contains beneficial vitamins (vitamin A, C, E, B-12, and B-9) that provide many other health benefits (10).

Buried Treasure™ Hair, Skin and Nails Plus contains many ingredients to ensure strong and healthy hair, skin and nail.

This supplement expands the power of nourishment from within by combining the best plant sourced nutraceuticals, organic compounds, high potency vitamins, minerals and nourishing foods.

Life Line Foods Explains the Benefits of Liquid Nutritional Supplements

Dr. Chris Terrell Discusses the Advantages of Liquid Vitamins 

Matthew:  Vitamins and supplements have been a growing industry for the past 40 years.   Life Line Foods has been only focusing on liquid supplements since the mid 80’s.   However liquid supplements make up only about 5% of the entire industry.    Why do you think that is?

Dr. Chris:  Life Line Foods focuses solely on liquid vitamins and supplements because they understand it has superior absorbability.   It’s the best way to get nutrients into your body. The second part of the question, I believe, relates to taste.  There has been a long standing stigma against liquids. 20-50 years ago many had to deal with the taste of cod liver oil.  Things are very different now with use of more natural flavors.   We have come so far with technology.   People really should give liquid nutrients a try.

Matthew:  One thing we really focus on is the flavor.   How can anyone sell liquid supplements if they taste bad?  There are a lot of alternatives to liquid supplements with gummies, pills, capsules and tablets.  They may be less expensive than liquids but how effective are they?

Dr. Chris:  That is a very in depth question and it depends on what item we are specifically talking about.   Some herbs are only 20-30% absorbable in raw powder form.  Whereas liquids have up to 99% absorption.  Sometimes there is a convenience factor with other methods.   But superior absorption is going to be with liquid nutrients.

Matthew:   A lot of big box stores carry their own brands of tablets or capsules.  One point we are trying to make is the value of liquid vitamins and supplements verses other methods.  Do you think for the money spent on other delivery methods do you think people are getting what they pay for?

Dr. Chris: Again, it depends on so many factors.   Some products contain fibers, cellulose that your body can’t break down.  Another factor is if the manufacture does a dissolution test where the they can see if the product does break down by stomach acid. If your body doesn’t have enough stomach acid.   The product may be less expensive but how much does your body absorb.   For instance your body may only absorb 20% of a cheaper tablet or capsule.   The cost to the effectiveness with a liquid is always going to be superior.

Matthew:   The cost may be less expensive to other methods but the value may not be there.   If your professional opinion how much more effective are liquid supplements?

Dr. Chris: In my professional opinion liquids are going to be better.   There are a few exceptions where you need to bypass stomach acid like probioitics.   They need to bypass the stomach acid to be effective.  So they need to be in a capsule or soft gel.   For everything else, liquids are going to be better.   They are easier to digest, easier to absorb, it’s easier for your body to break down.   Your body doesn’t have to break down liquids as much.   The particle size is smaller which gives much better absorption.

Matthew:  This is what Life Line Foods Buried Treasure is all about – presenting value in our products.   It is difficult to present and sell a product if it doesn’t taste good and you are not getting any value out of it.    Can you break down a little of what bio-availability means?

Dr. Chris:  I like to keep my definitions simple and I am sure there are other definitions but basically bio-availability means how much your body is absorbing and how much you can get out of a product.  How much of a product you can utilize.   This varies on what product you are talking about but with liquids generally you have a very small particle size which means more bio-availability.

Matthew:   This is exactly what we are talking about with Buried Treasure products.   We advertise our particle size is less than 10 microns which is very small and makes it easier to absorb.   Your body doesn’t have to work very hard to break down the ingredients.

Dr. Chris:   Exactly, the smaller particle size the better the absorption.

Matthew:   What kind of health issues or health concerns do you see with people taking tablets, capsules or gummy bears for their supplements?

Dr. Chris: One major issue is low stomach acid.   Many people are on acid blockers.  People in their 40s,50s and 60s naturally have low stomach acid but also need to be on liquid supplements.  in my profession opinion people in this category with low stomach acid or are on acid blockers need to be on liquid supplements.   Anyone with gastrointestinal or digestive issues can’t absorb or breakdown nutrients they need for proper assimilation.

Matthew:  What about children?   We offer a Children’s Complete daily supplement.

Dr. Chris:   Again, liquids are always going to absorb better.   Children naturally have higher stomach acid so it is easier for them to break down ingredients, but if you don’t have to break it down, they will absorb much better.  You can put the liquids in any kind of juice or Stevia sweetened drink.

Matthew:   This is big difference with gummy bears or other methods that have added sugar or cellulose which has no nutritional value.

Dr. Chris:  If that is the only thing your child will take then give it to them.   They need the extra nutrients.  If they will take a liquid supplement they are avoiding the sugar, fillers, artificial ingredients and they are getting superior absorption

Matthew:  So are liquids for everyone?

Dr. Chris:   The exception is if anyone has difficulty swallowing thin liquids like with dysphasia or taking probiotics.  For everyone else liquids are the way to go.

Matthew:  Thank you Dr. Chris for coming out.   We appreciate your professional opinion and expertise on nutrition.
