Having healthy hair, skin and nails is not only essential for our overall well-being but also plays a vital role in our appearance. In fact, they are often the first things people notice about us. Therefore, when our hair starts to thin, or our skin loses its radiance, it can understandably lead to self-consciousness and discomfort.
Herbal Pharm offers a range of supplements created specifically for issues concerning your hair, skin and nails, and is available for sale online in Singapore. Find out how our products can help give your locks shine, glowing, hydrated skin and strong, smooth nails free of discolouration.
What are some common hair, skin, and nail issues?
Hair loss is a common issue; men may experience thinning hair, balding, or receding hairlines. Women may suffer from thinning hair, breakage, or dryness. Many women notice a change in their skin after pregnancy, and many others complain of chronic acne. Nails can become brittle and fragile and may chip or crack easily. Skin conditions such as eczema and psoriasis can cause discomfort and itching. These problems can affect anyone, regardless of gender or age.
What are hair, skin, and nail supplements?
Skin supplements contain ingredients that benefit the skin. They may be used to address dry or oily skin or prevent wrinkles. Some of these ingredients also help with acne. Skin supplements are used for treating many different types of skin disorders. They contain nutrients such as vitamins A, C, D, E, B1, B2, B6, folic acid, biotin, pantothenic acid, zinc, iron, copper, iodine, calcium, magnesium, and manganese. These nutrients help address conditions like acne, eczema, psoriasis, sunburn, and wrinkles.
Nail supplements help strengthen nails and prevent them from breaking or splitting. They can also help improve skin conditions such as psoriasis and dermatitis. They are usually made from vitamins, minerals, proteins, amino acids, trace elements, antioxidants, and essential fatty acids.
Hair supplements contain vitamins and minerals that help strengthen weak strands of hair by promoting hair growth and thickness. These nutrients work together with proteins found naturally in the body to repair damaged hair. People generally tend to tap on hair supplements when their hair begins to thin or fall out due to age.
What supplements can help make hair and nails stronger?
Vitamin A is known for strengthening hair and nail growth. Studies show that women whose diets contained high levels of vitamin A had thicker hair, shinier nails, and fewer broken strands of hair. Since vitamin A is fat-soluble, it's best consumed in the form of foods like carrots, sweet potatoes, and squash. Also, vitamin A isn't the only vitamin that strengthens hair and nails; vitamin B6 and vitamin C are also great sources of nutrients that strengthen these body parts.
Vitamin B12 is another powerful nutrient that strengthens hair and nails. It plays a role in cell growth and repair. Although many foods contain vitamin B12, animal proteins like meat, dairy, eggs, fish, and poultry are the best sources. Some vegans may supplement with fortified plant-based foods such as soy milk, nutritional yeast, or nutritional yeast powder.
Since vitamin B12 deficiency can lead to hair loss and brittle nails, it's important to eat a balanced diet rich in protein. However, these foods aren't always easy to locate, and that’s where health supplements for hair and nails come in.
