Hair, Skin, and Nails Profile

Are you having difficulty with your hair falling out? Is your skin dry and itchy?

Dry skin, unusual or excessive hair loss, brittle nails, or nails that are pitted or have ridges can all be signs of a nutritional imbalance. Hair, skin, and nails are comprised of remarkably high turnover cells, meaning they can grow very quickly, but they can also be affected quickly by imbalances.

By evaluating your unique bio-chemical markers you can discover nutrient imbalances and then address them through supplementation, nutrition/diet changes, or other lifestyle modifications. Adequate levels of the nutrients in this profile are necessary for healthy hair, skin, and nails.
