Hair and Fingernails
True beauty comes from within – HairThe hair papillae are the centre of hair growth.They are located on the boundary line - invisible to us - between the dermal and subcutaneous skin layers, both rich in connective tissue, on the inside of our scalp. This is where new hair cells are continually produced and pushed outward. A sufficient supply of silicic acid promotes these processes. A deficiency of silicic acid causes the hair to become brittle and dull.
- This purely mineral nutrient acts at the hair’s root.
- At the same time, the production of the keratin protein modules, which human hair consists of, is supported.
Tough as nails - Fingernails
Like hair, fingernails are outgrowths from the skin. They are not only the "hard" version of the topmost layer of horny skin cells, but also our personal calling card. For our hands are always at the centre of attention. Our hands can only look their very best and, at the same time, be as tough as nails if our body receives a sufficient supply of vital substances.
In this context, silicic acid plays an important role.
- The growth of healthy connective tissue is promoted, in particular the thick layer of epithelium skin which makes up the nailbed.
- The keratin protein filament network is reinforced, making the fingernails stronger.
