If you’re searching for a solution for beauty from the inside-out, Dr. Robert Marshall, PhD and co-founder of Quantum Nutrition Labs, has a suggestion for you!
In a previous episode of Healthline Live Radio Show, Dr. Marshall discusses solubilized keratin. Keratin is a fibrous structural protein that is a key component of healthy hair, skin, and nails. This protein protects epithelial cells from damage or stress and gives hair, skin, and nail cells their structure. Keratin is also commonly used in hair treatments to restore shine and make hair smooth.
Dr. Marshall states: “After the age of 45 or 50, our skin typically thins as much as 50% … as we get older, we make less and less keratin, so it’s hard to hold the moisture and density of the skin and the integrity of the hair and nails.” He is pointing out that as we age, our skin becomes thinner and has less moisture. This can lead to various types of the wrinkles, including crow's feet around the eyes, that many people dread. The good news is that you can support healthy skin with a nutritional supplement that can help nourish your skin from the inside out.
However, not all hair, skin, and nail supplements on the market are created equal. Dr. Marshall warns consumers about this: “Most of the products that claim they’re going to help you are made from chicken neck proteins, which contain collagen. They might help a little but keratin has studies to show that it is really beneficial.” Although the collagen protein typically used may be from the bone, cartilage, and tendon tissues of chickens, Dr. Marshall prefers the use of keratin. Dr. Marshall emphasizes that “solubilized keratin uniquely supports skin moisture, elasticity, compactness and promotes healthier, stronger nail growth, hair growth, and strength.”
If you are struggling with lackluster hair, skin, and nail health, consider adding a high-quality keratin supplement to your nutritional regimen. Look for a solubilized form of keratin (which is more capable of being dissolved) for the optimal effect. Please ensure that you look for a high-quality source from a trusted, transparent company!
