HSN Complete by Designs for Health is a comprehensive formula that combines a wide array of vitamins, minerals, amino acids and botanicals to provide the necessary building blocks for healthy hair, skin and nails.
While many people think hair, skin and nails exist simply for cosmetic reasons, they actually serve valuable health functions. The skin is the body’s largest organ and a primary site of detoxification (via perspiration). It also helps regulate body temperature. The strength and appearance of nails offer insight into the body’s nutrient status, as inadequate levels of certain vitamins or minerals may negatively impact nail growth and health. The same is true for hair, and hair—particularly eyebrows and eyelashes—serves a protective function in keeping dust and debris out of the eyes. Aging, sun damage, oxidative stress, as well as nutritional and hormonal imbalances can all impact the health and luster of hair, skin and nails.
HSN Complete Highlights
Collagen and Keratin – Hair, skin and nails rely upon the fibrous proteins collagen and keratin to give them structure, strength and elasticity. H-S-N Complete contains glycine and proline, two of the key amino acids that lend structure to collagen, along with vitamin C, B vitamins, silica, and sulfur (as methylsulfonylmethane and n-acetylcysteine) – all of which are crucial for collagen renewal. Keratin’s robust structure is supported by amino acids like cysteine, as well as various vitamins and minerals.
Green Tea and Olive Fruit Extracts – These herbal extracts have powerful antioxidant effects which support the body’s natural defenses against oxidative stress. EGCg from green tea extract may also help to protect the skin from the damaging effects of UV light exposure.
Bamboo Extract – The silica found in bamboo aids in collagen renewal, and has been clinically shown to decrease wrinkle depth, and support hair and nail strength.* The bamboo in this formula is standardized to contain 40% silica, an amount found to be effective in research.
Vitamins A and D – Vitamin A supports tissue repair and acts as a potent antioxidant, preventing oxidative stress caused by skin damaging free radicals. Vitamin D plays a role in regulating the processes that replenish skin and hair follicles, making it a key vitamin for skin integrity and hair regeneration.
Chelated Zinc, Copper, and Manganese – Skin-supportive minerals are provided in a form that is bioavailable and easily used by the body. Zinc helps to maintain skin integrity and support wound healing, while copper and manganese support healthy collagen formation.
Grape Seed – The grape seed in this formula is standardized to contain 95% OPCs (oligomeric proanthocyanidins), powerful antioxidants which are known to support healthy hair growth in animal studies.
Biotin – This nutrient is part of the B vitamin complex group and has been shown to support nail structure.
