Why is keratin so important?
Keratin is a protein found throughout the body. It is the main component of our skin, hair and nails. Has your body got enough keratin? If not, you may have duller skin, weaker hair and brittle nails.
This is because keratin is crucial to the structure of your skin, hair and nails.
Where can keratin be found?
In your diet
The production and synthesis of keratin in our body relies on certain key foods that contain B vitamins (onions, cauliflower, broccoli, etc.), iron (spinach, cashew nuts, kidney beans, etc.) and zinc (wholemeal bread, eggs, seafood, etc.)1. However, a balanced and varied diet may not always provide us with all the keratin, vitamins and minerals we need.
In a suitable dietary supplement
Why should you choose our CynaPlus® keratin?
Using a unique, patented process, Alline Procap and Alline Proderm dietary supplements contain CynaPlus® keratin in the form of oligopeptides (small peptides) instead of individual amino acids. This innovative conversion makes the absorption process much easier because the small intestine is able to absorb small peptides. This absorption method is more efficient than absorbing individual amino acids6
It combines all 18 amino acids that make up the keratin molecule. In addition to methionine and cysteine, this keratin contains 16 other amino acids, compared to the typical keratin found in other products. The 18 amino acids are nutrients that are fundamental to beautiful hair.
Two studies were carried out to demonstrate the effectiveness of the CynaPlus® keratin contained in Alline procap and Alline proderm
This study7 was based on 50 women and was carried out in a double-blind, randomised, placebo-controlled trial over a period of 90 days using 2 capsules per day, which corresponds to a daily intake of 500 mg of CynaPlus® keratin. The results obtained demonstrated a significant improvement in hair quality in the group taking the active ingredient, but not in the group taking the placebo:
2. Alline proderm
A clinical trial8 based on 50 women conducted over a period of 3 months demonstrated the effectiveness of 500mg of CynaPlus® keratin as contained in Alline proderm. The results speak for themselves:
