As more and more women opt for drastic measures to enhance their natural beauty, they may be overlooking the most fundamental of all aesthetic wisdom: real beauty comes from within. If you want to stay looking younger for longer, you need to pay more attention to what you put inside your body.
In 2015 over 51,000 people in the UK underwent some kind of cosmetic procedure, an increase of 13 per cent on the previous year. But anyone wanting to stay youthful without resorting to extreme measures should bear in mind that when it comes to holding back the years, optimal levels of key nutrients are the best starting point.
A broad spectrum of nutrients is essential for the health of hair nutrients, and to prevent the signs and symptoms of premature ageing. Those key nutrients have been brought together in one comprehensive, high potency supplement, unique to Solo Nutrition: the Hair Nutrient Formula.
Hair Nutrient Formula is a carefully balanced combination of all the B vitamins, including biotin, the mineral selenium, amino acids L-cysteine and L-methionine, vitamins A, C and E and the herbal extract horsetail, rich in silica.
Biotin works synergistically with other B vitamins, and it helps prevent brittle or weak nails as well as slow down hair loss. B vitamins are required for cell metabolism and division and the energy the body needs to carry out all its repair work.
It is believed that the effects of free radicals, unstable molecules in the body which damage DNA, are the skin’s biggest enemy when it comes to premature ageing. These damaging free radicals are caused by smoking, excessive alcohol intake, stress, pollution and fried foods. Fortunately, the antidote to these harmful chemicals are found in certain nutrients, in particular the vitamins A, C E and the mineral selenium which are known as antioxidants. Vitamin C is especially important: it is needed to make collagen, the intracellular “glue” which holds cells together and keeps skin supple and elastic. The deficiency of antioxidants is linked to premature wrinkles and dryness of the skin. HSN has the added bonus of lipoic acid, an exceptionally potent antioxidant that “recycles” other antioxidants such as vitamins C and E, so they can be used again in the body.
When it comes to hair health, not only do you need a good supply of B vitamins, you also need adequate protein, which is made up of amino acids. The amino acids L-cysteine and L-methionine play an especially important role in healthy hair growth. HF is completed with the addition of the herbal extract horsetail, which is rich in silica, known to help prevent weak, brittle nails.
