The appearance of the skin can tell a lot about a person’s life: it is the first line of defence against external perturbations, including sun exposure, chemical stress, and bacterial infection. Although it is impossible to prevent the process of aging, good nutrition is one of the factors contributing to the maintenance of normal skin, hair and nails. Indeed, their appearance is regularly assessed by healthcare practitioners to identify deficiencies in Zinc, Selenium, Iodine and several Complex-B Vitamins.

With the global spreading of the westernized diet and more frequent reporting of vitamin and mineral deficiencies even in industrialized countries such as Europe and the US, maintaining adequate nutrient intakes for a healthy complexion can be challenging.

Bio availability of Yeast Micronutrients

Yeast's ability to incorporate certain vitamins and minerals within its cells makes it an ideal natural ingredient for dietary supplements formulated to help maintain normal hair, skin, and nails. Compared to pure forms of certain minerals and vitamins, those found in yeast have been shown in several studies to have slower absorption rates and higher bioavailability in animals and humans.
