Formula north - Ingredients list

Vitamin C

A water-soluble vitamin that helps to protect the body's cells against oxidative stress and support the body’s collagen formation for the normal function of cartilage, skin, teeth, and bones. It also helps to restore damaged vitamin E in the body. Vitamin C is necessary for the skin and the rest of the body's tissue to maintain its normal functions.

 

Vitamin E

Vitamin E is a fat-soluble vitamin that contributes to the protection of the body’s cells against oxidative stress, which is partly responsible for the normal aging of the cells.

 

Biotin

Biotin is a water-soluble B vitamin, formerly called vitamin B8. It functions as a coenzyme and contributes to the body's normal energy metabolism. Biotin also helps to maintain normal skin, mucous membranes, and hair.

 

Zinc

Zinc is an essential mineral with antioxidant properties. It takes part in about 200 different enzyme functions in the body where it contributes to the maintenance of normal skin, hair, nails, and vision. The skin contains six percent of the body's total amount of zinc and is incorporated as a stabilizing factor in skin cell membranes. Zinc is required for the formation of DNA, and the proteins used to produce hair cells and is also needed for the cell division leading to the formation of nails.

 

Selenium

Selenium is an essential mineral and an antioxidant, which contributes to the protection of the body's cells against oxidative stress. Selenium also contributes to the maintenance of hair and nails. Hair and nails consist predominantly of keratin which is a protein. It is formed by cells called keratinocytes, which can not perform their function without a number of selenium-containing selenoproteins. The selenium content in Formula North is the patented Danish selenium yeast, SelenoPrecise® which has an extremely high level of bio-availability and a stable quality. 89% of the selenium content is absorbed in the body and is documented in more than 40 published scientific trials.

 

Hydrolyzed collagen

Formula North contains collagen derived from fish, preferably from the skin, and is hydrolyzed, meaning that it is degraded to peptides, which enhances its effect.

 

Horsetail extract

The herb Horsetail is a rich source of organically bound silica, an important trace element. The tissues that contain the largest concentrations of silica are skin, connective tissue, tendons, and arteries. Horsetail contributes in this way to the maintenance of skin, hair, and nails.

 

Tomato extract

A rich and bioavailable source of lycopene, a plant pigment, and carotenoid. Lycopene is related to betacarotene. Lycopene is a bioavailable substance that belongs naturally in tissue and plasma in the human body.

 

Blueberry extract

Contains a natural coloring agent called anthocyanin and the substance pterostilbene. Blueberries can help to maintain healthy eyes by acting as an antioxidant, and also through its effect on the blood vessels.

 

French maritime pine extract (Pycnogenol®)

A patented extract from the bark of French maritime pine. The extract contains a unique mix of water-soluble, natural bioflavonoids and fruit acids that helps to protect the skin cells from damage from oxidative stress and promote good blood circulation.
