A Deep Dive into: EMPOWER
Part of our Daily Essentials Stack, Empower is a hair, skin, and nails supplement designed for athletes.
With a list of powerful ingredients that not only support healthy hair, skin, and nails but also encourage muscle tissue repair and joint health.
In this article, we’ll cover some of the key ingredients we included in the formulation of EMPOWER and how they can work for you.
Protecting your joints (and improving your skin) with Hyaluronic Acid
A common ingredient in topical skincare products, hyaluronic acid is found in the fluid surrounding your joints. This makes it a vital part of protecting your joints during high-stress activities like running and heavy weightlifting. It is your shock absorber and can protect you from developing achy, sore joints and studies show that it can also reduce knee pain.
As we age, our body makes less and less of its own hyaluronic acid. This is why as we get older, our skin loses elasticity and wrinkles begin to form. Supplementing your body with extra hyaluronic acid can help your skin look smoother and more hydrated giving the appearance of younger skin while also improving redness and overall tone.
Want to maintain muscle mass? You should be taking collagen.
Collagen has been taking the supplement world by storm in recent years. From coffee creamers to capsules, everyone has heard of it by now. Most people hear collagen and think beauty and skincare however, did you know that it can help you maintain lean muscle mass too?
Collagen is broken down by your body into amino acids which are then used to begin repairing, rebuilding, and strengthening your joints, muscles, ligaments, and more. We included collagen in our formula for EMPOWER because although it’s called a hair, skin, and nails supplement, it really is so much more. Collagen is so essential to maintaining a strong, healthy body it was a no-brainer.
Biotin, the most basic hair, skin, and nails ingredient
Biotin is one of the most common and well known vitamins you will find in a hair, skin, and nails supplement. Why is that? Well, it’s because biotin is an essential vitamin. Biotin is necessary to metabolize carbohydrates, fats, and amino acids and to transport nutrients throughout your body.
Biotin also stimulates keratin production, the protein that makes up your hair, skin, and nails. This means that supplementing with biotin can help you have longer hair, stronger nails, and healthier-looking skin.
Your Gut Health = Your Skin Health
Each strain of probiotic has different properties and therefore has a different effect on your body. Certain probiotics can promote your skin’s production of ceramides. Ceramides are fats that help keep moisture in your skin locked in and keep acne-causing bacteria at bay. There are more and more studies that also show a positive relationship between taking oral probiotics and treating various skin conditions like acne, dry skin, and eczema. Different factors like stress, changes in your diet, illness, and environmental changes can cause imbalances in your skin microbiome. Supplementing with probiotics can help keep your skin balanced and breakout-free.
