How Healthwell Collagen Skin & Nails works
Collagen is probably the best known substance in terms of skin and nails, which is not a surprise, considering its important functions, like maintaining elasticity of the tissues. But hyaluronic acid also plays an important role in the well-being of the tissues. Hyaluronic acid is a water-binding, endogenous substance that forms a gel-like substance that acts as volume, shock absorber, and lubricant between collagen and elastin. It also acts as lubricant in the joints, lungs, and muscles. Silicon is an important substance in the body as well, as it helps build collagen.
Pantothenic acid, also known as vitamin B5, is a popular supplement with people struggling with acne. Whether pantothenic acid actually works is debated and needs closer examination, but the basic idea is that acne can be caused by fatty acids being transported via the sebaceous glands. The pantothenic acid would then regulate this process and thus relieve the problem.
Finally, Healthwell Collagen Skin & Nails also contains the two antioxidant substances zinc and vitamin C. In addition to counteracting cell degradation, zinc is a component of hair, skin, and nails, and is active in nail and hair growth. Vitamin C is important for a normal immune system and also helps counteract oxidative stress.
