You bet they count. The image people encounter when you first meet colors their perception of you. That’s why it’s important to present your best self. What better way to do so than by preserving and promoting optimal health, both inside and out?
Your body’s amazing network optimizes nutrition, sending key nutrients to vital organs before other parts of the body. If essential elements are in minimal supply, your heart and brain will get them before your kidneys and pancreas. It stands to reason then, that skin, hair and nails, important yet not vital to your health, will only receive nutrition once the internal organs are properly supplied. Therefore, healthy skin, hair and nails are indicators that the body’s internal state of health is ideal.
EMPHASIS ON EXTERNALS
Hair has many different jobs, depending on where it is on your body. Cranial hair keeps your head warm and provides some cushioning for your skull. Eyelashes and eyebrows protect your eyes from light, sweat and dust. There are also hairs in your nose, ears, and on almost every other part of your body. All hairs play a role in health and/or function.
Nails are there to protect your fingers and toes from injury. Fingernails also help with grasp and fine-motor activities, while toenails help with mobility. A person can live without nails. But after one day without one nail, you’ll appreciate the blessing of protection provided by your nails.
And your skin? Besides for keeping internal organs inside, skin is the body’s front line of protection, keeping dirt and bacteria out. Healthy skin is important for maintaining overall health. Any break in the skin barrier raises the risk of germs and bacteria entering the body.
Hair, skin and nails are secondary markers of vitality, proving a proper state of health on the inside.
SHINE provides the body with a wide range of vitamins, minerals, herbs and more to support and maintain both internal and external health.
SPOTLIGHT ON SHINE
SHINE, from Advanced Nutrition by Zahler, is a comprehensive formula to support healthy hair, skin and nails. It is a veritable multi-vitamin with added nutrition for external organ health. SHINE is formulated with vitamins A, C, D, and E as well as many B vitamins in bio-active forms. These include Folate, B12, B6, and more. Biotin is also included at a safe level. There are also minerals found in the multi including Iodine, Zinc, Copper and Chromium.
Then there are the special hair, skin and nail ingredients. Hair and nails are made of keratin, a protein. Keratin is also found on the surface of the skin. Cynatine® HNS is a keratin protein that can bring about visible results when used continuously. L-Tyrosine is an amino acid that is important for the proteins that facilitate hair and nail growth. MSM and Silica keep tissue and cells healthy, flexible and resilient.
Your skin needs special supplementation too. Hyaluronic Acid helps keep up the extracellular matrix, the network of cells that gives the skin its shape and elasticity. This helps the skin remain flexible and retain hydration. Lycopene and Lutein slow down skin aging and damage caused by too much sunlight.
Together, these ingredients are a force of nutrition that provide your body with vitamins, minerals and other nutrients to boost overall health and build bounce and bounty for your external organs.
