13 Nutrients for Healthier Hair, Skin & Nails . . . and even improved circulation!

Good looks, good health?

It’s often said that our hair, skin, and nails are external tell-tale signs of how healthy we are (or not!). The first obvious signs of nutrition deficiency are of course external – so unhealthy hair, skin and nails indicate that your body needs a nutritional boost!

Good health often is reflected in an attractive, youthful appearance. So you might be tempted to blame ageing and stress for facial lines, unsightly fingernails, or hair loss.

In fact, these flaws can signal underlying health issues, says integrative medicine specialist Molly M. Roberts, MD, of the Institute for Health & Healing, in San Francisco, and president of the American Holistic Medical Association.

“Your Body will start by whispering, then it’ll start talking, and, if you don’t pay attention, it’ll start yelling and shouting, and then you’ve got an illness,” Molly M. Roberts, MD

In the modern world, our diet is often deficient in optimal levels of essential nutrients and in addition, includes foods that inflame our cells and cause a breakdown and even end up tearing apart the collagen, keratin, and elastin that provide supple skin, strong and silky hair and strong, fast-growing nails.

Toxic overload, stress, poor diet and nutritional deficiencies all contribute to lack-lustre skin, dry and brittle hair, and brittle nails that never seem to grow.

One of the neatest things about eating a healthy diet and supplementing with the right nutrients – is your nails, hair, and skin are often the first things to change for the better!

We encourage you to download the free The Eat Savvy Diet, as following this will help you to decrease toxins and increase the important nutrients and essential fatty acids for better hair, skin, and nails.

Eating a nutrient-rich diet is important, however you ‘fast-track’ your road to looking great and feeling healthier by increasing your supplementation of specific youth-boosting nutrients.

Here are 13 Nutrients for Healthier Hair, Skin & Nails . . .

Laundry Powder Leaves More Than You Expect!

Does anyone in your family suffer from skin problems, rashes, allergies, asthma? Perhaps you’ve tried everything and you just can’t seem to get on top of it? I know what it’s like because that’s what I was dealing with as a young mother. Four of my five children had skin problems, asthma and, or allergies. When I looked further after twelve years of constant issues, I was horrified at what I found. There were several rooms of the house that I had to take to task, but for now I am going to direct your attention to the laundry.

Maybe you’re overlooking this one single aspect, and changing what you use there could make all the difference. Did you know that the laundry is one of the most insidious aspects of your home, when it comes to unaccountable health issues? Did you know that most cleaning agents contain a toxic slew of chemicals? That even your laundry powder can leave residues on your clothing that can be potentially absorbed by your skin or even evaporate into the air  around you, for you to breathe in?

Typical laundry detergents may be imparting more on your clothing and skin than a “fresh” scent.
