Hair, Skin & Nails

If your hair is dull, nails cracking or brittle, or skin dry and flaky, the problem may be an issue of nutrition instead of whether or not you are using the correct cream or lotion on the outside. Healthy hair, skin, bones and nails begin with good nutrition.

Hair and nails are made of keratin (a protein) that is made up from a high percentage of the amino acid cysteine (15–17%). Amino acids help support the texture, thickness and colour of your hair. Methionine and cysteine influence hair follicles and promote healthy hair, skin, and nail growth to nurture a woman’s health and beauty from within – at the cellular level.

Optimum care for strong, healthy hair starts with sufficient amino acid levels in the body

Collagen is the most common protein in the body and comprises approximately 20–30% of all body proteins. It is found in the skin, tendons, ligaments, and many tissues that serve structural or mechanical functions.

Glycine and Proline account for about 50% of the amino acids in collagen.

Tooth enamel and bones consist of a protein matrix. By weight, bone tissue is 70% mineral, 8% water and 22% protein.

Naturopathic philosophy maintains that your skin reflects the condition of your liver – too many toxins lead to a dull, spotty sallow skin, as well as low energy levels.

The combination of peptides in Recov Bipeptides gives you a strong nutritional foundation for hair that is thick and lustrous, skin that looks youthful and nails that are strong and won’t crack.

Amino acids at work for your skin, bones, hair & nail

Isoleucine (Essential Amino Acid)
aids in the healing and repair of muscle tissue, skin and bones
Lysine (Essential Amino Acid)
  • helps ensure adequate absorption of calcium and the formation of collagen for bone, cartilage and connective tissue.
  • increases the absorption of calcium and may reduce its excretion. As a result, some researchers believe that lysine may eventually be shown to have a role in the prevention and treatment of osteoporosis
  • recently there has been a lot of buzz about L-lysine’s beneficial effect on androgenetic alopecia. It seems that taking L-lysine helps to increase the efficacy of drugs like Propecia and Rogaine. Spencer Kobren has recently added this amino acid to his regimen and believes there is true benefit in the use of L-lysine as an adjunct nutritional supplement in the fight against hair loss
  • a deficiency could result in retarded growth and hair loss
Methionine (Essential Amino Acid)
  • a powerful anti-oxidant and a good source of sulphur, which prevents disorders of the hair, skin, and nails
  • prevents brittle hair
Threonine (Essential Amino Acid)
  • is important for the formation of collagen, elastin and tooth enamel
  • makes up a substantial portion of the collagen
Arginine (Non-essential Amino Acid)
it is also involved in the production of skin and connective tissue, making it important for the healing and repair of soft tissue, the formation of collagen and in the building of new bone and tendons
Aspartic Acid (Non-essential Amino Acid)
rejuvenates cellular activity, cell formation and metabolism, which gives you a younger looking appearance
Cysteine & Cystine (Non-essential Amino Acid)
  • slows down the aging process
  • skin and hair is made up of 10–14% Cysteine
Glutamine (Non-essential Amino Acid)
is considered essential for repair and recovery
Glycine (Non-essential Amino Acid)
  • found in high concentrations in the skin and connective tissues
  • key role in manufacturing of hormones
  • speeds the healing of wounds
Proline (Non-essential Amino Acid)
  • improves skin texture by aiding the production of collagen and reducing the loss of collagen through the aging process
  • helps in the healing of cartilage and the strengthening of joints, tendons, and heart muscle
  • works with Vitamin C to promote healthy connective tissues
Tyrosine (Non-essential Amino Acid)
  • aids in the production of melanin (the pigment responsible for hair and skin colour) and in the functions of the adrenal, thyroid, and pituitary glands
  • used by the thyroid gland for the production of Thyroxine, a vital hormone involved in regulating growth and skin health
  • helps in healing and repairing skin and tissue
Methionine (Essential Amino Acid)
assists the breakdown of fats, thus helping to prevent a build-up of fat in the liver and arteries, that might obstruct blood flow to the brain, heart, and kidneys
Phenylalanine (Essential Amino Acid)
used to treat obesity, reduces hunger pains
Threonine (Essential Amino Acid)
  • assists metabolism and assimilation
  • aids the digestive and intestinal tracts to function better, and acts as a trigger for metabolism
Tryptophan (Essential Amino Acid)
aids in weight control by reducing appetite
Alanine (Non-essential Amino Acid)
aids in the metabolism of glucose, a simple carbohydrate that the body uses for energy
Arginine (Non-essential Amino Acid)
aids in weight loss because it facilitates an increase in muscle mass and a reduction of body fat
Aspartic Acid (Non-essential Amino Acid)
rejuvenates cellular activity, cell formation and metabolism, which gives you a younger looking appearance
Cysteine & Cystine (Non-essential Amino Acid)
promotes the burning of fat and the building of muscle
Glutamic Acid (Non-essential Amino Acid)
important in the metabolism of sugars and fats
Glutamine (Non-essential Amino Acid)
  • alleviates fatigue, depression and impotence
  • decreases sugar cravings
Ornithine (Non-essential Amino Acid)
  • helps to prompt the release of growth hormones, which promotes the metabolism of excess body fat (this effect is enhanced if combined with Arginine and Carnitine)
  • necessary for lean muscle mass
  • induces the release of growth hormone in the body, which in turn helps with fat metabolism
Serine (Non-essential Amino Acid)
needed for the proper metabolism of fats and fatty acids
Taurine (Non-essential Amino Acid)
  • is the key component of bile, which is needed for the digestion of fats
  • is important for the energy metabolism / the transformation of food into energy
Tyrosine (Non-essential Amino Acid)
  • is important to overall metabolism
  • suppresses the appetite, and helps reduce body fat
  • used by the thyroid gland for the production of Thyroxine, a vital hormone involved in regulating growth, metabolism, skin health and mental state
