Biotin is known to be one of the ingredients that can change your hair and nails game. But is it though? Keep reading to know why we have it as one of our key ingredients!
A randomised clinical trial was conducted by D.P. Patel on 18 participants with poor nail and hair growth.
D.P Patel conducted a randomised clinical trial/research on 18 patients who had an underlying pathology for poor nail or hair growth.
Objective: To study the efficacy of biotin supplementation in nail and hair growth.
Method: They conducted a PubMed search of all case reports and randomized clinical trials (RCTs) using the following terms: (biotin and hair); (biotin and supplementation and hair); (biotin supplementation); (biotin and alopecia); (biotin and nails); (biotin and dermatology), and (biotin recommendations).
Conclusion: It was found that all cases showed improvement in the quality of their hair and nails after the biotin supplementation. It has also been found that brittle nails or uncombable hair can benefit from biotin supplementation. All cases showed evidence of clinical improvement after receiving biotin.
Aloe vera has been used for medicinal purposes in several cultures for millennia: Greece, Egypt, India, Mexico, Japan, and China.
Aloe vera contains 75 potentially active constituents: vitamins, enzymes, minerals, salicylic acids, and amino acids which makes it a superfood.
According to a research study by Amar Surjushe, Resham Vasani, and D.G Saple, the following effects were seen after Aloe Vera administration:
- Effects on skin exposure to UV: Aloe vera has been reported to have a protective effect against radiation damage to the skin. Following the administration of Aloe vera, an antioxidant protein, metallothionein, is generated in the skin which prevents UV-induced suppression of delayed-type hypersensitivity.
- Moisturizing and anti-aging effects: Mucopolysaccharides help in binding moisture into the skin. Aloe stimulates fibroblast which produces collagen and elastin fibers making the skin more elastic and less wrinkled. It also has cohesive effects on the superficial flaking epidermal cells by sticking them together, which softens the skin. The amino acids also soften hardened skin cells and zinc acts as an astringent to tighten pores. Its moisturizing effects has also been studied in the treatment of dry skin associated with occupational exposure where aloe vera gel gloves improved the skin integrity, decreases the appearance of fine wrinkle, and decreases erythema.
- Antiseptic effect: Aloe vera contains 6 antiseptic agents: Lupeol, salicylic acid, urea nitrogen, cinnamonic acid, phenols, and sulfur. They all have an inhibitory action on fungi, bacteria, and viruses-- in turn help in preventing acne.
- Healing properties: An increased synthesis of hyaluronic acid and dermatan sulfate in the granulation tissue of a healing wound following oral treatment has been reported. Aloe vera helps in boosting collagen production which then helps to heal scars and blemishes.
It’s been known that from the age of 20, our dermis layer produces 1% less collagen year on year which is why you need to supplement it from the outside. Collagen is one of the most hyped nutrients in the health and wellness industry lately, here’s why!
To study the effectiveness of Collagen on the skin, two clinical studies were conducted by researchers.
Clinical Study 1
Objective: To study the effectiveness of collagen hydrolysate (CH) composed of specific collagen peptides on skin biophysical parameters related to cutaneous ageing.
Method: In this double-blind, placebo-controlled trial conducted by E Proksch, D Segger, J Degwert, M Schunck, V Zague, S Oesser -- 69 women aged 35-55 years were randomized to receive 2.5 g or 5.0 g of CH or placebo once daily for 8 weeks, with 23 subjects being allocated to each treatment group.
Results: At the end of the study, skin elasticity in both CH dosage groups showed a statistically significant improvement in comparison to placebo. After 4 weeks of follow-up treatment, a statistically significantly higher skin elasticity level was determined in elderly women. Regarding skin moisture and skin evaporation, a positive influence of CH treatment could be observed.
Clinical Study 2
Background: Over the last decade, many researchers tried to evaluate the effects of collagen supplements on skin aging and surprisingly revealed that the interventions improved skin aging parameters without any inconsistency.
Objective: This systematic review assesses the literature regarding the effects of collagen supplements on skin health parameters in healthy and patient subjects, focusing on mechanisms of action.
Results: The evidence obtained from these systematic reviews indicated that oral administration of intact or hydrolyzed collagen improves clinical manifestation of skin health. Almost all of the included studies reported the beneficial effects of collagen supplementation, and no inconsistencies have been seen in this regard between studies.
Conclusions: In this systematic review, three different mechanisms of action were clarified for the intervention. Direct effects of collagen peptides on fibroblasts, M2-like macrophages, and oral tolerance-related mechanisms are the possible mechanisms for the beneficial effects of collagen supplementation.
Whoever said that pain is beauty is badly mistaken. Swallowing bitter pills to get that glow, beautiful hair and strong nails is no more a thing because there’s nothing worse than piles of half-used pill bottles lying around in our homes. We get it.
