How Nutra Origin Multi Today Skin, Hair, & Nails works:
Developed based on a thorough review of the scientific evidence, NutraOrigin's Multi Today Skin, Hair, & Nailss includes only ingredients with documented efficacy and safety, and contains no artificial colors, flavors or preservatives. The ingredients described below will give you a better understanding of how Multi Today Skin, Hair, & Nailss works to help you feel good and look good.
Skin, Hair & Nail Ingredients
As you may know, your skin is the largest organ in your body. It is composed of three layers: the epidermis, which is largely made of the structural protein keratin; the dermis, which is constructed of the structural proteins collagen and elastin; and the subcutaneous layer, which contains fats that absorb shock and insulate heat.
While your skin, hair and nails all appear to be very different structures, they are made of the same basic stuff: keratin and collagen, both structural proteins. What this means is that ingredients that are good for your skin will likely benefit your hair and nails, and vice versa.
Vitamin A supports the health of the skin in several ways. Getting enough vitamin A may help you look younger by protecting against UV-induced skin damage. In addition, this nutrient is absolutely necessary for the maintenance and healing of the epidermis (the outermost layer of skin).
Of course, vitamin A is needed by other parts of the body too. Your eyes need vitamin A for healthy vision; in fact, one of the first signs of a vitamin A deficiency is poor nighttime vision. And your immune system needs vitamin A to help it maintain your natural resistance.
Multi Today Skin, Hair & Nails features the highly absorbable form of vitamin A known as retinyl palmitate.
Vitamin C (as ascorbic acid)
Vitamin C is necessary for the synthesis of collagen. Because collagen is an important part of your connective tissue, it is critical for supporting the structural integrity of skin and for wound healing. Your immune system also relies on vitamin C to function normally, and the summary of evidence from human clinical trials indicates that taking the vitamin every day can boost your body's response to immune challenges.
Vitamin E (as d-alpha tocopherol acetate)
Vitamin E is like an internal moisturizer. It lives in the skin, where it protects your natural moisture barrier. As a result, this antioxidant provides excellent skin hydration.
Vitamin E may also good for your heart. It is taken up by the endothelial cells that line the blood vessels, where it helps keep veins, arteries and capillaries clean and flexible. In addition, it inhibits the production of some pro-inflammatory chemicals, which has the net effect of dilating the blood vessels.
Whereas most products use cheaper, poorly absorbed synthetic vitamin E, Multi Today Skin, Hair & Nails includes naturally derived vitamin E (d-alpha tocopherol acetate) for optimal absorption.
Biotin is a B vitamin with big benefits for the nails and skin. Researchers started paying attention to biotin when they found that it could make pigs' and horses' hooves stronger. These animals' hooves are made of the same structural protein as human fingernails: keratin. So it only made sense to the researchers that biotin would strengthen nails too.
Their hunch was correct. One study found that taking 2,500 mcg of biotin per day could increase nail thickness in women suffering from brittle nails by an impressive 25 percent! The nails of biotin-supplemented women were also less likely to split and had improved structure compared to the nails of women did not take the vitamin.
A lack of biotin can contribute to more than just brittle nails, though. Even a mild deficiency of this B vitamin can cause itchy, scaly skin and even hair loss.
Manganese is an essential mineral that is needed for growth and development. It also helps repair connective tissue. That's important for skin health, because connective tissue is made of collagen and elastin, which help form the dermal layer of the skin. If collagen becomes degraded, skin loses its structure. If elastin becomes degraded, skin loses its elasticity.
Selenium is an essential mineral and an important building block for the creation of glutathione peroxidase, one of the body's most significant antioxidant enzymes for inhibiting free radicals. Research has shown that blood levels of selenium decrease significantly with age. This may result in reduced antioxidant activity.
Like manganese, zinc is an essential mineral that cells need to grow. Because it helps collagen and elastic maintain their structural integrity, zinc may prevent sagging and wrinkles.
Choline and inositol
While not official members of the B-vitamin family, choline and inositol are B-vitamin like compounds that are important elements of cell membranes.
Bone Health Ingredients
Calcium, magnesium and phosphorous are minerals that play a role in supporting bone and muscle health. While your average one-per-day multivitamins usually include just a smidgen of calcium, Multi Today Skin, Hair & Nails provides over 700 mg in every 3-caplet dose - fulfilling 70 percent of your daily calcium needs. It also includes 100 mg of calcium's essential co-nutrient magnesium, which must be present in the body in order for calcium to be absorbed, and 150 mg of phosphorous, which adds strength to bones and teeth.
But it's not just minerals that are important for bone strength. Vitamin D is also critical for bone mineralization.
As a group, the B vitamins are essential for the production of energy and maintaining the health of the nervous system, which is why people who take a daily multivitamin often report having more energy and feeling less stressed. The B vitamins also aid with protein, fat and carbohydrate metabolism. Each B vitamin additionally plays its own unique role in human physiology.
Vitamin B1 (Thiamin)
Vitamin B1 is needed to produce energy in the brain, and several studies indicate it may improve mild memory problems associated with aging.
Vitamin B2 (Riboflavin)
Vitamin B2 regenerates, or brings back to life, glutathione - one of the body's most important antioxidants.
Vitamin B3 (Niacin)
Vitamin B3 plays several important functions in the body, including maintaining balanced blood sugar levels and participating in antioxidant and detoxification reactions.
Vitamin B5 (Pantothenic Acid)
The body uses vitamin B5 to make adrenal hormones that help the body respond to occasional stress - hence the nickname "the anti-stress vitamin." It is also needed to manufacture red blood cells.
Vitamin B6 (Pyridoxine)
Because it is necessary for proper cell reproduction, vitamin B6 is especially important to cells that divide and grow rapidly, such as the cells of the immune system, mucous membranes, skin, red blood cells and developing fetus.
Vitamin B12 (Cobalamin) and Folic Acid
Vitamin B12 is necessary for healthy hair growth. In fact, a deficiency in this B vitamin can cause hair loss.
Both vitamin B12 and folic acid are used to produce DNA, the myelin sheath (the protective coating surrounding nerve cells) and red blood cells. In fact, a deficiency in either vitamin can cause anemia. About 9 percent of the U.S. population is deficient in vitamin B12, while another 11 percent is borderline-deficient. More than 10 percent of Americans are deficient in folic acid.

Many chronic health conditions are preventable. They result from years of poor eating habits, lack of exercise, or prolonged exposure to stress. Some have become so common that they do not even remember what good health feels like. Now leading health organizations now tell us that by returning to a healthier lifestyle - by getting the right nutrients, becoming active, and learning to manage the stressors in life - many of these conditions can be prevented, managed, or even reversed. Why can't theyr address all health problems and bodily challenges medically? The question has become a central topic in many leading publications. But the answer is fairly obvious: Western medicine is organized around acute illness, not long-term health.
"The US health care system is still largely designed to treat patients with acute medical problems.... 'At no point in medical school are physicians exposed to patients with chronic illness, except for acute episodes leading to hospitalization,' says Michael Lockshin, MD, a Harvard Medical School graduate and head of the women and rheumatic disease center at New York City Hospital for Special Surgery. "The result: Many patients shuffle from doctor to doctor in search of relief from many complications of their chronic illnesses. On average, people with one chronic condition see three different physicians and fill seven prescriptions a year, according to Partnership for Solutions, a research group at Johns Hopkins University in Baltimore.
People with five or more chronic conditions make 12 physician visits and fill 50 prescriptions a year.... "Chronic diseases are now the leading cause of disability and death in the United States, with seven in 10 deaths each year attributed to such illnesses as cancer, heart diseases, diabetes and stroke. About 133 million Americans - nearly one in two adults - live with at least one chronic disease, and more than one in 10 have three or more.... "'The present medical model has ignored many of the issues - pain, fatigue, anger - that interfere with people's lives,' says Nancy Whitelaw, Ph.D, NCOA senior vice president. 'Until their care system focuses on improved health for people with chronic conditions, they will never get a handle on skyrocketing costs.
