Product Description

HSN Complete

Nutritional support for hair, skin, and nails.

 

H-S-N CompleteTM is a comprehensive formula which combines a wide array of vitamins, minerals, amino acids, and botanicals in order to provide building blocks necessary for healthy hair, skin and nails. While many think of the hair, skin and nails as only existing for cosmetic reasons, they actually have valuable functions, the main one being that of protection.

The skin is the human body’s largest organ. Its most obvious function
is to provide protective covering for the body. Through perspiration the
skin also plays a role in regulating the body’s temperature and
eliminating toxins. The function of the hair is not quite as discernible,
but it appears to also provide a layer of protection. For instance, hair on
the head helps to protect against overexposure to sunlight, while
eyebrows and eyelashes work to keep sweat and debris out of our
eyes. Nails, which are actually a part of the epidermis (skin’s outer layer), help protect the sensitive tips of fingers and toes and assist with dexterity (picking up small items with your fingers). Nails also provide outward signs of various health conditions (e.g., spoon-shaped nails can be indicative of iron-deficiency anemia).

Keratin and Collagen

Hair, skin and nails all contain the fibrous protein keratin, which is rich in sulfur-containing amino acids, especially cysteine. Keratin is a filament-forming protein, whose molecules are entwined around each other in long filaments that are cross-linked by bonds between the sulfur atoms. This twining and cross-linking is dependent on various nutrients, and gives the keratin structures their strength.

Collagen is a fibrous protein and a primary constituent of the body’s connective tissue. It is a main component of hair, skin, and nails and serves vital functions, such as supporting skin elasticity. With a decrease in skin elasticity (often seen with age), the skin can wrinkle and break down.

Collagen is comprised of various amino acids with two of the main ones being glycine and proline, both found in H-S-N CompleteTM. This formula is also rich in vitamin C and the B vitamins, as they are all essential for healthy connective tissue and collagen metabolism. The MSM (methylsulfonylmethane) and n-acetylcysteine in H-S-N CompleteTM are sulfur- containing compounds, while our bamboo extract is standardized to contain 40% silica. Both sulfur and silica are necessary for the formation of collagen.

Highlights Green Tea Extract

  • Polyphenols in green tea help to protect against UVB light-induced skin disorders associated with immune suppression and DNA damage.1
  • EGCg has been shown to modulate androgenic activity, helping to support androgenetic alopecia (male pattern baldness) and hormonal-related acne.2 This appears to occur due to the selective inhibition of 5-alpha-reductase activity by EGCg.

 

Olive Fruit Extract (as Hytolive®)

Hytolive® is standardized to contain 10% hydroxytyrosol, which is one of the olive fruit’s most important polyphenols and boasts potent antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties. Hydroxytyrosol’s strong antioxidant abilities appear to help support skin health by protecting keratinocytes against the damaging effect of ultraviolet (UV)-derived oxidative stress.3,4

Bamboo Extract (Bambusa vulgaris) is standardized to contain 40% silica, which yields a 34 mg dose of this nutrient. The element silicon is not officially recognized as an essential mineral and dietary content is variable since few foods provide significant amounts (such as oats, barley and some rice fractions). Silicon has been recognized as essential in stabilizing the collagen structures, reducing its breakdown, thus supporting improved quality of all connective tissues. Research shows that supplementation with silicon yields many potential benefits such as improved skin quality (30% reduced wrinkle depth) and hair quality (+12.8% thickness, +13% strength) as well as reduced nail brittleness.5 This formula provides a plant-derived silicon form in a dose equivalent to that used in this research.

Vitamins A and D
• Vitamin A is a powerful antioxidant that helps support the immune system and prevents oxidative stress from free radicals which can be damaging to the skin. It is essential for the maintenance and repair of tissue, such as skin.

• Vitamin D is a steroid hormone that modulates growth and differentiation of keratinocytes.6 Vitamin D also plays a role in hair follicle growth, making it a critical vitamin for the regeneration of hair.7

Albion® Chelated Minerals for superior absorption – Zinc, Copper, Manganese

  • Zinc – Substantially high levels of zinc are found in the skin, especially in the epidermis. It helps to maintain the integrityof the skin, with many dermatologic conditions being associated with zinc insufficiency. Zinc is also well known for its wound healing support.
  • Copper is involved in the formation of cross-links in collagen and elastin (protein found in collagen).8
  • Manganese is necessary to activate the enzyme prolidase, which provides the amino acid proline (found in H-S-NCompleteTM) for collagen formation.9
    Biotin helps to increase nail plate thickness in those with brittle nails.10-12Grape seed is standardized to contain 95% proanthocyanidins, which possess growth-promoting activity toward hair epithelial cells in animal studies.13
