look good. Healthy,
beautiful hair, skin and nails can only be achieved by caring for your body both
internally and externally. Internal hair, skin and
nail care begins with proper nutrition, including eating whole
grains, seeds and plenty of fresh fruits and vegetables.
It also includes drinking plenty of water which helps to hydrate
skin from the inside, flushing toxins out from the body.
Obesity can make a person prone to eczema, rashes and fungal
infections, largely because extreme weight makes people sweat
more which interferes with the body's own processes of
On the other hand, a diet containing too few calories can give
skin a withered, dry, rough, inelastic and even cold appearance.
Stress has been called one of the biggest enemies of beautiful
skin and hair and is one of the main factors that contribute to
ageing and hair loss. Studies indicate that many people
lack nutritional balance because of their stress levels, busy
lifestyles, poor eating habits and the lack of nutritional
content in their food.
Have you ever wondered why some people look 10 years older than
their actual age, whilst others look 10 years younger?
Good genetics obviously play a key role, however the
appearance of your skin is largely influenced by your diet and
lifestyle, stress-levels, quality of sleep, the climate in which
you live and your exposure to free radical damage.
Free-radicals are highly reactive molecules which destroy
cellular compounds, weaken healthy cells and accelerate ageing
of the skin. Smoking, alcohol, drugs, stress, chemical
toxicity, sun damage, even a lack of drinking water - all
contribute to ageing, often caused as a result of free radical damage.
Special nutrients called 'anti-oxidants' reduce free radical
damage to help your skin stay younger for longer.
Adequate daily amounts of nutrients including the B-Complex
vitamins plus Vitamins A and K, zinc and iron (which can all be
found in a high quality balanced multivitamin), and Vitamin C, antioxidants, essential fatty
acids, and protein - all help to reduce the ageing process.
Each nutrient is important for healthy skin, nails and hair,
along with exercise and rest, and will make a huge impact on
your overall health and appearance. Importantly, don't
forget to drinking sufficient amounts of water to keep your body
Many nutrients are involved in making healthy skin and hair:
Skin and Hair is mainly made up of protein (keratin).
Silica gives skin and hair its elasticity.
Essential Fatty Acids improve skin and hair texture.
Stress significantly depletes B vitamins and a lack of B
vitamins can result in hair loss and skin ageing.
If you wish to improve your appearance naturally, or maintain
your current youthful looks and beauty, we recommend that you
take the following supplements on a daily basis:
General Nutrition for the Hair, Skin
is our top selling supplement worldwide!
This great tasting fruit drink is made with a
concentrated blend of 10 fruits and herbal extracts that
provide powerful antioxidant benefits.
More and more studies show that antioxidants can help reduce the
risk of heart disease, cancer, inflammation, psoriasis, eczema and many more health
conditions. Antioxidants also help slow down the ageing
process, helping protect the skin, increasing its integrity and
elasticity and so reduce the visible signs of ageing. Zambroza can be taken by people of all ages and is also
recommended during pregnancy to help protect both mother
and unborn child.
Supplemental Vitamins & Minerals
augment any diet. Balanced nutrients are often in short
supply during periods of physical stress or convalescence and
illness, or in a diet consisting of mostly processed foods,
sugar, fizzy drinks, alcohol and caffeine. Super
Supplemental can help fill this void, ensuring you receive all
the nutrients your body needs every day to strengthen your hair,
skin and nails.
Vitamin C Timed Release 1000mg
is an antioxidant, and it performs many functions
involving the immune system and also new tissue development.
It is involved in iron absorption and in the synthesis of
enzymes, hormones, and proteins amongst many other functions.
Vitamin C is water-soluble and is easily washed from the body if
unused. It therefore needs to be replaced constantly.
Without Vitamin C, the body cannot make collagen, the substance
that holds the body's cells together and 'plumps' up the skin.
This high potency supplement is especially formulated to release
Vitamin C into our body systems slowly throughout the day. Each
tablet is designed with a special coating to release its
contents only after reaching the intestine.
Horsetail & Rosemary Combination
(otherwise known as 'Hair Skin and Nails')
provides significant amounts of herbal silicon which helps
strengthen the hair, give skin elasticity and aid hair growth.
Silica is found in connective tissues throughout the body and is
important in the building and normal repair of healthy
connective tissue. This supplement also contains dulse
plant, horsetail herb, sage leaves and rosemary leaves which all
help support healthy hair, skin and nails.
Evening Primrose Oil
contains gamma-linolenic acid (GLA), an essential
fatty acid that assists the body in producing prostaglandins
(messengers in the body that perform hundreds of important
functions). Without an adequate supply of GLA, optimal
health is impossible to achieve.
rich sources of Essential Fatty Acids which are fats that have to be taken
externally through the diet because the body cannot manufacture
them. Essential Fatty Acids are vital to the body because
they are necessary in keeping our cell membranes healthy, and
they form a large component of the nervous system within the brain
and in the retina. The best sources of Omega 3 are found
in high quality fish oils which can easily be assimilated in the
body. Flaxseed oil are also a very good source, especially
for vegans, and they have no after-taste.
Additional Nutrition for
Many people notice changes with their hair as they get older.
Some experience thinning, whilst others experience temporary or
permanent hair loss. These changes can be caused by
genetics, auto-immune response (where the body attacks its own
hair follicles), hormonal imbalances, poor circulation, trauma,
stress, medication, pregnancy, menopause, anaemia, skin
disorders, or a poor diet.
Hair growth requires optimal delivery of oxygen and nutrients to
the hair follicle. Without the required vitamins, amino
acids (proteins) and nutrients, your hair will undoubtedly
suffer. Here are some extra nutrients that will assist if
you are suffering with hair loss.

supplement packs all the benefits of the 3 most popular algae
supplements on the market today. Algae is a superfood

Lake blue-green algae. Super Algae maximises protein,
amino acid, chlorophyll and beta-carotene content of each algae

Many Vitamin B compounds are easily lost in refining and
cooking; they can also be washed from the body by coffee, tea,
alcohol, and heavy perspiration. Physical stressful
conditions can also deplete the body of essential B-vitamins.
B-vitamins are particularly important for the nervous system.
They are also vital for good digestive function and enzyme
reactions that control energy, circulation, hormones and overall

Skin, hair and nails are all affected by diet, cleanliness and
stress, and so a good daily cleansing treatment regimen is also
vital. This can help maintain the hair, skin and nail's
current state of health by nourishing it and protecting it.

throughout the day. The skin especially has to be
regularly cleansed to avoid pore blockages and acne break-outs.
