The aging process is rarely kind. I began to lose moisture in my skin early, around age 43. The skin on my hands easily cracks and peels, which isn’t a very pretty sight.
In the last year or so my hair has begun to fall out more rapidly. A lot of that has to do with the meds I have to take. Still, it isn’t a fun proposition either.
I have never had strong nails. They chip, crack and peel if you just look at them the wrong way.
Because of all these issues a seemingly popular vitamin supplement sold on Home Shopping Network (HSN) intrigued me. The product is called Healthy Hair, Skin & Nails. Vitamin guru Andrew Lessman makes it.
Lessman has been pioneering some of the most cutting edge vitamin supplements in the United States for nearly two decades. He has proven a commitment both to the environment and to his customers. His green manufacturing plant is fully operated by solar energy while his vitamins contain natural ingredients.
Healthy Hair, Skin & Nails supports integumentary system, which is the largest organ in the human body. With support, it is also the only system that continues to grow new tissue throughout an individual’s life.
Support is required because the integumentary system needs vitamins and nutrients in order to function at peak capacity. Without them, it begins to slow and break down without completely shutting down. Hence the dry, brittle hair; cracked, painful skin and thin, peeling nails.
Luckily the structure of those three – – hair, skin and nails ‘” is almost identical in composition. That allows a single, properly formulated system to help each individually as well as the whole collective.
Healthy Hair, Skin & Nails include critical ingredients like vitamin B and biotin, which have long been considered important to the health of the integumentary system. The product also includes sulfur because it is crucial to the structure of the system’s tissue. Additionally, it includes silicone in a soluble organic form to provide a support structure for the tissue.
Other ingredients include the following:
1,000 units of vitamin A;
5 milligrams of vitamins B 1, 2 and 6;
40 micrograms of vitamin B12;
3,600 micrograms of biotin;
20 milligrams of a branched chain amino acid complex;
90 milligrams of vitamin C;
10 milligrams of calcium;
100 milligrams of citrus bioflavanoid complex;
200 units of vitamin D3;
50 milligrams of epigallocatechin;
20 micrograms of folic acid;
188 milligrams of gelatin;
100 milligrams of green tea extract;
700 milligrams of methylsulfonylmethane;
5 milligrams of niacin;
20 milligrams of pantothenic acid and
10 milligrams of silicone.
The daily recommended dose of Healthy Hair, Skin & Nails is 1 or 2 capsules per day, as approved by your health care provider. Mr. Lessman does recommend you get physician approval before beginning to take any type of over-the-counter vitamin supplement.
I have been using Healthy Hair, Skin & Nails for just over 30 days and I have already begun to see a difference in the condition of each. My nails are stronger and healthier looking. My skin doesn’t crack and peel excessively as it once did. Best of all, the rate of my hair loss has diminished considerably.
Here is my summary review:
Supplemental status: 5 stars. I love Healthy Hair, Skin & Nails because I could readily see a difference within the first 30 days.
Freshness: 5 stars. These vitamin supplements are made as needed to prevent too much time in holding. The supplements are put into an opaque bottle that is properly sealed to ensure the freshness and safety of the contents. A “use by” date is also printed on the bottom of each bottle to inform the consumer when the product is no longer viable.
Green value: 5 stars. The plant is green and solar powered. The materials are recycled. The bottle is reusable. The label inks are environmental friendly. It doesn’t get much greener than that.
Packaging: 5 stars. The packaging is attractive and distinctive. The bottle is opaque white to help seal in the freshness of the supplements. The label contains pictures to accentuate the supplement’s purpose as well as a picture of Andrew Lessman. The ingredients are printed on the back of each bottle along with key information about the product.
The only negative might be the excess of information provided. Perhaps an accompanying pamphlet or instruction sheet would be better advised in order to make the bottle appear less busy.
Kudos go to the company for using recycled materials and environmentally friendly inks.
Ease of storage: 5 stars. The bottle measures 4″ in height by less than 2″ in diameter. It is small enough to store in a medicine cabinet, a travel-on case, or even a medium to large handbag.
Availability: 4 stars. Healthy Hair, Skin & Nails are available through HSN as well as Lessman’s company ProCaps Labs. It can also be purchased online.
Price: 4 stars. Healthy Hair, Skin & Nails are a bit more expensive than generic, over-the-counter products that claim to do the same thing. A one-month supply costs about $16. However, the more you purchase, the lower the cost. A year’s supply is roughly $120.
While I wouldn’t normally pay such a price, this product is often on sale at HSN and provided on their flex pay plan. Because the product actually works, the cost seems reasonable to me.
Product purchase probability: 5 stars. Now that I have found these, I doubt I could live without them.
Final rating: 4.8 stars. This is a good product!
5 stars – outstanding
4 stars – good
3 stars – average
2 stars – below average
1 star – poor
