The essential nutrients for stronger hair, skin and nails
Dreaming of luscious locks, luminous skin and beautiful nails? Turns out certain nutrients can hold the key to healthy good looks.
Do you have thin, brittle nails? Dry and lifeless hair? Irritated or dull skin texture or tone?
We all go through days, weeks or months when we feel below par on the beauty front.
These external symptoms often track back to what’s going on inside our bodies.
If you’re lacking the nutrients you need to support hair, skin and nail health, the effect can be all too obvious.
So, we’ve tracked down the super power vitamins and minerals you need to know about:
B is for Biotin
This strange-sounding word from the ancient Greek word “biotos”, which means “life” or “sustenance”.
Also known as Vitamin H, Biotin is one of the B complex vitamins that help your body convert food into energy.
B vitamins, and specifically Biotin, help keep your nails, skin, hair, eyes, liver and nervous system healthy.
C is for Vitamin C
One of the most popular micronutrients around, Vitamin C supports healthy skin by building collagen and slowing the rate of free radicals formed, which helps keep wrinkles, dryness and fine lines at bay.
Collagen also happens to be the building block for nails, so you can thank it (and therefore Vitamin C) for lending your nails their strength and shape.
This super vitamin also helps your body absorb iron, important for strong and healthy locks.
S is for Silicon and Selenium
Fun fact: Silicon is the second most abundant element on earth, exceeded only by oxygen.
Deficiencies in Silicon can lead to thinning hair, brittle nails and premature ageing of the skin, meaning – You. Need. This.
Selenium might be one of the lesser-known minerals but this potent antioxidant that fights oxidative stress is essential for the proper functioning of your body.
It’s found in a wide variety of foods from oysters to mushrooms to Brazil nuts.
Z is for Zinc
Research shows Zinc is effective in helping to tackle some skin issues.
This power mineral also plays an important role in hair tissue growth and repair and has been shown to help keep the oil glands around your hair follicles working properly.
Science has found Zinc supplements can reduce hair loss caused by Zinc deficiency.
