Vitamin B7 Biotin:
In a small controlled study among women with brittle nail, showed supplementing with Biotin (vitamin B7) may
increased nail thickness by 25% and reduced the tendency of nails to
split (Columbo, J Am Acad Dermatol 1990).
According to Toronto-based family medicine practitioner Dr. Sheila
Wijayasinghe, nutritional deficiencies are one of the four main causes
of nail problems like peeling or cracking. Vitamin D3
itself appear to play a role in maintaining nail integrity, the
nutrient is necessary for proper calcium absorption and to regulate the
concentration of the mineral in your blood. Calcium is also required for
nail health; peeling nails may indicate that low vitamin D is affecting
your calcium level.
Vitamin D3 is a beneficial vitamin
and antioxidant that is widely known as a key element in supporting a healthy
immune system and preventing bone related diseases like osteoporosis and
rickets. It is effective in targeting and improving skin care problems such as
itching, flaking, and redness associated with psoriasis.
Vitamin B5 is a
humectant--a water-binding substance that attracts and retains water, protecting the skin from the elements such as washing hands frequently.
As a humectant, B5 stabilizes the skin barrier function,
reducing the amount of water lost through the skin. By applying a B5 formulation to the skin, you will not only increase its
hydration but improve its softness and elasticity, making it
ideal for the treatment of dry, scaly or rough skin.
Vitamin E is an antioxidant that protects and repairs your skin.
