An Herbal Formula For Healthy Hair, Skin & Nails
Many people have found that a simple formula consisting of four herbs has been helpful for strengthening fingernails and aiding hair and skin. One of the major benefits of HSN-W formula is that it contains two of the richest sources of organic silicon in the plant kingdom.
Silicon is an element that works with calcium to improve the strength and flexibility of structural components of the body. By itself, calcium is hard, but brittle (like chalk which is composed largely of calcium). When silicon combines with calcium and other minerals in bones, fingernails, hair and other structural components, it adds flexibility to strength. Hence, silicon is a nutrient that helps prevent fingernails from cracking, hair from splitting, and bones from becoming brittle. Silicon also improves skin tone and sheen and the load bearing capacity of joints. It plays a role in nerve function as well, being part of the nerve sheath (myelin sheath)which protects and insulates the nerve fibers.
Western diets tend to be low in silica because silicon adds durability, strength and flexibility to plant parts as well as to body parts. Hence it is the coarse, fibrous parts of the plant which contain the most silicon -- parts such as husks, stems, peelings, cores and so forth. These are the parts most of us peel off or cut out and then throwaway.
The four ingredients in this formula are:
If your skin sags and lacks luster, your nails break, your hair has split ends and/or your joints ache under heavy loads, you may need more silicon in your diet and this herbal combination may be a way to get it.
