We received an email that touched us deeply. A woman wrote saying that her two index fingernails had been damaged and were unsightly.
For 4 years, she tried anti-fungals, anti-virals, antibiotics but nothing worked. She started taking Spiruvive Fresh Canadian Spirulina and reports: “My nails are looking the healthiest they have in over 5 years and I know this green gold is to thank! For the first time I can see the moons in those fingernails!!”
This comes as no surprise as Spirulina has all the nutrients necessary for healthy nails. And, with the live enzymes in our pure, fresh-frozen Spirulina, your body is able to fully absorb and utilize these nutrients.
All the essential nutrients
According to Healthline, there are 8 essential nutrients for strong, healthy nails:
Number 1: Biotin “promotes healthy cell growth and aids in the metabolism of protein-building amino acids that are essential for nail growth.”
Number 2: Other B Vitamins – Folate and B12 – “play a role in red blood cell production and oxygen transportation to nail cells.”
Number 3: Iron which carries oxygen to all cells including nails.
Number 4: Magnesium is involved in over 300 reactions in the body, including protein synthesis, which is required for nail growth.”
Number 5: Protein is another essential nutrient. “Nails are primarily made of a fibrous structural protein called keratin. This is what gives nails their strength and resilience. It also protects nails from damage or stress.”
Number 6: Omega 3 Fatty Acids lubricate and moisturize nails giving them a shiny appearance.
Number 7: Vitamin C “is essential for the production of collagen, a protein that gives shape, strength and integrity to many tissues and is the building block of fingernails, hair and teeth.”
Number 8: Zinc – “Nails are made up of a type of cell that grows and divides rapidly. Because of this fast production, a steady supply of zinc is needed to promote the healthy growth of nails.”
Just like hair and skin, healthy nails are a reflection of a healthy body. Spiruvive Fresh Canadian Spirulina contributes to health inside and out.
