Solgar for hair, skin and nails - effects

.

Using the Solgar Hair Skin and Nails dietary supplement for 3 months can produce beneficial effects for beauty such as reduced hair loss and strengthened hair roots, improved skin condition and appearance, strengthened nail plate and reduced breakage.

.
Insufficient protein intake causes impaired hair synthesis (brittleness), hair weakness and hair loss. The amino acids L-lysine and L-proline contained in the preparation will have a beneficial effect on the condition and appearance of the hair.
.
Ilona Krzak.

Ilona Krzak Master of Pharmacy

.

"L-lysine is mainly found in the inner part of the hair bulb and is responsible for its shape and volume. With an insufficient supply of lysine, hair is brittle, thin and limp, so the Solgar product is a great way to supplement this valuable amino acid. L-proline is the main component of collagen and, with vitamin C and copper, supports its production in the body," adds the MSc pharmacist.

Interesting study

In one scientific study, healthy women aged 35-59 years were supplemented with 1-3 g of organosulphur (MSM) for 4 months. At weeks 2, 4 and 8, the women assessed shine, hair volume and overall nail plate health. The subjects mostly noticed a significant improvement in the appearance and condition of their hair and nails.

.
Copper has an anti-ageing effect on the skin and promotes collagen production in the body, which affects skin firmness and elasticity. It also acts as a pigmenting agent for the hair and gives it shine. It also strengthens the nail plate to make it resistant to damage.

Contraindications

.

If you are pregnant, breastfeeding, taking permanent medication or are undergoing chemotherapy, consult your doctor before taking. The active ingredients in the dietary supplement may affect the effects ofand:

    .
  • antibiotics,
  • .
  • diuretics,
  • .
  • anticoagulants,
  • anti-inflammatory drugs,
  • Set the daily dose and appropriate intervals between the dietary supplement and other preparations with your doctor.

    .

    Side effects

    .

    Unpleasant side effects occur if excessive intake occurs or if contraindications are ignored. The most common side effects are the weakening or enhancement of the effects of other drugs or preparations. Therefore, consult your doctor or pharmacist before consumption.

    When will I see the effects?

    .

    Remember - the most important thing is systematics and patience. It will take several weeks before the active ingredients grow in the body and affect hair, skin and nails.

    .
    You will need to wait about four weeks for the first visible results. It is also worth taking care of a nutritious diet and good skin, nail and hair care practices.

    It will be most beneficial to take the formula from Solgar for 3 months. Before supplementation, take photos of your nails, hair length and skin condition. After this time, take new photos and compare them - you will see the effects with your own eyes.

    Expert opinions

    .
    The Solgar Hair Skin Nails formula is an interesting product, with a good composition without unnecessary additives in the form of colourings, preservatives or flavourings. The simple but interesting composition and daily dose can support the appearance and condition of hair skin and nails.

    I would recommend this dietary supplement to people who have been through an illness (e.g. flu, COVID-19, inflammation) or are going through a stressful time in their lives and need to improve the appearance and condition of weakened hair, skin, nails. This is a strong formula that will help stop hair loss or strengthen nails. I would advise against it for someone who doesn't have deficiency symptoms but just wants to buy a supplement - better to invest in a nutritional diet.

    How does this look in practice?

    .
    .
    After a month of taking Solgar tablets, I noticed: significantly less hair loss, new roots - significant thickening of hair, fewer pimples on my face (I have acne-prone skin), even skin tone. No other product has had such a comprehensive effect on me. I highly recommend it.

    My toenails and fingernails looked as if someone had cut them crosswise with a razor blade - this is drug onycholysis, as I take medication for RA. I had thinning hair. I have been taking Solgar once a day for two years. My nails have now grown back and my hair - it's a head of hair again! Surely if I had taken the tablet twice a day, it would have all worked sooner. You have to be patient and consume several packs.

    The best supplement for hair and claws! After tormenting my hair with bleaching and styling, I decided to cut it down and take Solgar. They are growing fast, nice, strong, moisturised, lots of baby hair on the corners. I also have claws like a cat woman! Strong, nice, no uneven plate that I don't even have to paint them! I've been taking the product for 4 months now.

    For many years my hair has been thin, falling out frequently and I have visible thinning at the corners. I have hyperthyroidism. This is the best supplement I have had so far. For unbelievers - my hair has stopped falling out and baby hair has appeared. I understand that the large size of the tablet is a problem for some - it caused me a problem too, but I found that I had to try it - after all, my head was at stake, which was starting to almost go bald, and I managed it!

    After the first pack, I noticed that my hair was falling out less, growing faster and there was also more new hair (this was also pointed out by my hairdresser). My nails became less brittle. It took me less time to bring my nail plate to a normal state than when I was not supplementing with Solgar. My advice is to follow the manufacturer's recommendations and take the tablets with a meal, as it can be a little nauseating when taken on an empty stomach. I have a problem swallowing the large tablets, but you can break it into two parts which are no longer so difficult to swallow.

    I have been using this product for 8 years. My hair went through "quite a ride" with a failed perm of the old type, then highlights, bleaching. I now take comprehensive care of them and have included Solgar in my supplementation. I am 56 years old and have a few grey hairs!

    Is the Solgar dietary supplement for me?

    .

    Try the Hair Skin Nails formula if:

    .
      .
    • your hair falls out, is brittle, fragile, splits,
    • .
    • you have brittle nail plate, burrs and can't grow them,
    • .
    • you want to improve the tone, firmness and quality of your skin and body skin,
    • .

    Are you worried about the state of your hair, skin and nails? Get yourself examined!

    Hair loss, poor skin condition, brittle nails and general deterioration are all signals from your body that something wrong is happening. You may be ingesting a pill with a rich formula, but it won't solve the problems if the source is a hormonal disorder, nutrient deficiency or illness.

    Helpful blood testsfor diagnosing bad hair, skin and nails are:

    The test results are a helpful guide for the doctor to find the cause of hair loss, brittle nails or poor skin condition.

    I have asked Dr Witold Tomaszewski, M.D., about the possibility of performing these tests within the framework of the National Health Fund.

    The primary care physician can issue referrals for: morphology (basic or expanded), serum iron levels, TSH and FT3 and FT4 when such tests can help to make a diagnosis of the disease.
