Hair Skin and Nails Plus
Hair Skin and Nails Plus, provided by Douglas Laboratories, supplies beneficial amounts of several vitamins, minerals and other nutrients, specially formulated to support healthy hair, skin and nails.
Vitamin C (ascorbic acid) has numerous biological functions. Foremost, it is essential for the synthesis of collagen and glycosaminoglycans which are the building materials of all connective tissues, such as skin, blood vessels, tendons, joint cartilage and bone. Vitamin C is the required coenzyme for two groups of enzymes that catalyze the crosslinking of collagen fibers – lysyl hydroxylases and prolyl hydroxylases.
As such, vitamin C is essential for normal wound healing and capillary health. It also participates in the biosynthesis of carnitine, serotonin, and certain neurotransmitters, including norepinephrine. Vitamin C is among the most powerful antioxidants in humans and animals. It is a water-soluble, chain-breaking antioxidant that reacts directly with superoxide, hydroxyl radicals, and singlet oxygen.
Hair Skin and Nails Plus may be a useful dietary adjunct for individuals who wish to support healthy hair, skin and nails.
