Age related deterioration of skin and hair, even in those who are not affected by hormonal hairloss (MPB, FPB) is not only unsightly, but is a visible sign of aging connective tissue proteins throughout the body. This type of hair loss, clinically termed Senescent Hair loss, subtly begins in the 40’s and results in the gradual miniaturization of the hair shaft, giving hair a wispy, see through quality as one ages. This phenomena occurs independent of any hormonal factors that precipitate a pattern loss, seen in both male and female pattern baldness at an early age onset. Senescent thinning juxtaposed on a pre-existing Androgenetic or MPB condition makes a bad situation worse.
Age related senescent hair loss and progressive skin laxity occur as a result of a decline in the body’s production of keratin and collagen and the resultant connective tissue degradation. Insufficient intake of specific vitamins and minerals further contributes to the loss of essential structural proteins.
Many of these changes can now be prevented, slowed, or even reversed with a novel combination of bio-available keratin and collagen, along with specific vitamins and minerals.
Published clinical studies document reversals in markers of dermatological aging in response to replenishing specific structural proteins through supplementation.
These reversals in response to supplementation are reflected through thicker, more lustrous hair, stronger nails, and firmer facial skin
There exists a clear rationale for replenishing Keratin and Collagen proteins to prevent both hair miniaturization and slackening skin. The problem with virtually all commercial keratin preparations is that they are made from hooves, horns, and feathers. As a result, they lack biological activity in humans because they have been over processed during exposure to heat, chemicals and other harsh conditions.
Researchers in the Bio-Tech Industry have developed a patented process that makes keratin soluble and significantly more bio-available, Cynatine HNS facilitating its direct absorption into the cells that form hair, nails, and skin.
In 2010, scientists found that female subjects who had damaged, fragile, and miniturized hair to determine if the oral soluble keratin supplement, Cynatine HNS was highly effective in strengthening hair and facilitating hair growth.
A controlled trial in 2014 found that Cynatine HNS taken for 90 days was effective for decreasing the rate and amount of hair loss, and increasing hair shaft diameter and growth rate, and produced the following results;
47.1% subjective improvement in hair appearance
5.9% improvement in hair strength
9.2% increase in hair follicles in the growth phase (the placebo group had no significant increase)
47% reduction in the number of hairs that could be removed from the scalp in a calibrated hair-pull test
In 2013, Cynatine HNS was evaluated in a randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled clinical trial with females, aged 40-71, to determine its effectiveness in improving skin laxity and appearance. Improvements were noted in as little as 30 days. In 90 days, skin elasticity was improved 16.8%, skin smoothness improved 17.9%, compared to the placebo group.
In addition to keratin, collagen is essential for firm, vibrant skin. There is an age-related decline in the number of collagen fibers in the dermis. This reduction in collagen production leads to a loose and sagging appearance, even in skin protected from UV exposure.
In order to directly address the issue of skin laxity, research teams created Bioactive Collagen Peptides, VERISOL, that provide structural support for collagen synthesis and dramatically increase the generation of collagen and elastin in the extracellular matrix of the skin. This results in significantly enhanced firmness and elasticity (snap back) to aging skin.
Several studies have confirmed these skin firming and wrinkle reducing effects. In 2014 a study found that a modest dose of Verisol increased skin elasticity by 7%, and these effects were still apparent even 4 weeks after discontinuing supplementation. Another in 2014, involving 114 women found supplemented subjects had a 65% increase in the accumulation of essential type-I pro-collagen and an 18% increase in elastin fibers, including a 20% reduction in the depth of facial lines.
Added Collagen Strengthening
Silicon is a trace element involved in the metabolism of connective tissue. It plays an important role by activating the hydroxylation enzymes for cross linking collagen, supporting its elasticity and strength. Stronger collagen translates into better hair, skin, and nails.
Age related thinning of the hair shaft, even in those unaffected by MPB, and skin slackness has traditionally been thought to be an inevitable consequence of aging, due to the progressive deterioration of the body’s structural proteins. The Hair , Skin and Nails Rejuvenation Formula with Verisol, a novel, oral formulation of specialized bioavailable collagen and keratin, plus biotin, silicon, and other micronutrients, the Hair, Skin and Nails Rejuvenation Formula with Verisol has been shown to support and strengthen healthy protein structures at both the microscopic and the visible levels. The components of this formula, along with many of our protocol recommendations,( Particularly Emu Oil, Astaxanthin, Grape Seed Extract, Resveratrol to name a few) will not only help counter hair loss, but will make you look significantly younger.
With each passing year there is new published research that enables us to more effectively intervene on both hairloss, skin aging, and aging in general. This newly developed formula is an example of this.
Integrating the Hair Skin and Nails Rejuvenation Formula into your existing hair loss treatment/anti-aging regime would be highly recommended for anyone over 40.
