Few things show the state of our health more than our hair, skin and nails. Frizzy, dry hair or peeling, ridge-lined nails can be dead giveaways for nutrient deficiencies. Not to mention the daily barrage of environmental toxins hair, skin and nails come up against.
Sometimes your body needs a little more than a multivitamin has to offer. An extra boost, to make sure your nutrient needs are met from the inside out. That’s why Tespo is excited to announce the launch of its new Hair, Skin and Nails formula, specifically designed to rejuvenate skin, strengthen nails and promote healthy hair and scalp. The Tespo formula uses a proprietary blend of vitamins, minerals and essential trace elements, including Biotin, Zinc, Vitamin C and Selenium to help hair, skin and nails achieve a stronger, healthier and more youthful look.
Here’s how the key nutrients in the formula can work for you:
With aging, our skin is less able to produce the collagen it needs. Vitamin A is thought to stimulate new collagen growth thereby helping to slow or even reverse the body’s diminishing collagen count. Vitamin A is also an antioxidant, which means it can fight the destructiveness free radicals may have on cells. It also plays a role in helping to maintain the epithelial tissue that lines eyes and skin and which serves as a bacteria barrier. Without it, skin can become dry and flaky. Vitamin A has been known to help fight acne.
As an antioxidant Vitamin C works to ward off the oxidative stress caused by free radicals. In doing so it helps to fend off wrinkles and the signs of aging skin. Research shows that Vitamin C, along with Vitamins B3 and biotin, promotes fuller hair. The oxidative stress caused by free radicals, can damage cell structures and cause our hair to age, contributing to hair loss and graying. Vitamin C is thought to help combat this aging process.
The sunshine vitamin offers many benefits, including supporting healthy aging. In particular, it helps our body to absorb calcium, which works to keep nails strong and healthy. It also supports the immune system and fights free radicals to fend off wrinkles and the aging process.
With age comes wrinkles and damage to our skin from the environment and free radicals. Research has shown Vitamin E, which is an antioxidant, to help reduce wrinkles and fine lines. Like Vitamin A, it also helps to protect the epithelial tissue to keep skin looking healthy. It also works to promote nail growth and keep them strong.
Otherwise known as Vitamin B7, biotin is a water-soluble nutrient that is part of the vitamin B complex. In addition to supporting healthy nerves, digestive tract and metabolism, biotin helps keep hair from thinning and nails from becoming brittle. It acts as a coenzyme needed to metabolize fatty acids, amino acids and glucose, which our body uses for energy. It is believed that biotin needs to be ingested to be fully effective.
This mineral is essential to healthy cell division and in being so contributes to the health and growth of hair, skin and nail cells. Splitting or discolored nails can signal a zinc deficiency. Zinc is thought to help acne and can also liven up lusterless locks.
This trace mineral helps to preserve elastin, a protein used to keep skin taught and smooth. Selenium has antioxidant properties, which can help prevent oxidation of cells and premature aging. It is considered another method to help cure acne. Selenium also is used in anti-dandruff shampoos to rid the scalp of unwanted bacteria or fungus. It utilizes proteins to boost hair growth.
Known to keep our skin firm and taught, collagen is a long-chain amino acid and the skin’s most prominent protein, making up a large part of our hair, skin and nails. In addition to helping our skin, it strengthens nails and hair. It has been used to reverse signs of hair loss. Unfortunately, it depletes with age, hence, the need for supplementation.
