Help Improve the Appearance of Hair, Nails and Skin
TrueHNS™ features Cynatine® HNS, a biologically active source of keratin protein. Keratin protein plays an especially important structural role in hair, nails and skin. Much of the strength of keratin comes from the amino acid cysteine - which is a large component of keratin.
Keratin is also naturally rich in sulfur which combines with the amino acids to function as an antioxidant and help normalize levels of inflammation (Cynatine® HNS has also been shown to help joints and muscles).
Prior to Cynatine® HNS, the keratin used in supplements was typically a by-product of the meat processing industry which produces a keratin protein that’s biologically inactive and can’t be readily broken down and used by the body.
The introduction of Cynatine® HNS changed this, thanks to a revolutionary technology that gently solubizes keratin obtained from New Zealand sheep’s wool, and maintains its bioactivity.
A recently completed double blind, placebo controlled clinical trial involving 50 women demonstrated Cynatine® HNS’s ability to support healthy hair, nails and skin when taking 500mg daily for 90 days.
Some benefits included: 30% less hair loss from washing, increased shine and brightness in 95% of users, increased skin moisture by 30% over placebo, decreasing the appearance of wrinkles by up to 18% and decreasing the tendency of nails to break by 65%.
In addition, TrueHNS™ is formulated with Orgen-Bio™ organic biotin which comes from the sesbania plant. Since it’s a “whole food” based nutrient, Orgen-Bio™ is believed to be much more bioavailable than the synthetic biotin found in most other products. Among other things, biotin supports the formation of keratin protein in the body.
Plus, TrueHNS™ contains an organic bamboo extract that is 75% silica. In addition to strengthening brittle hair and nails, silica helps increase collagen production which is necessary for healthy looking skin.
CynatineHNS™: A Bioactive Keratin Protein that’s been Shown to Work
Given the important role of keratin in maintaining strong and attractive looking hair, nails and skin, taking a keratin protein supplement has been of great interest.
Unfortunately, until recently, taking keratin as a supplement was worthless because it couldn’t be broken down or used by your body.
You may have seen keratin ingredients before, but these were by-products of the meat processing industry which produces a keratin protein that’s biologically inactive. This is due to industrial processes that include high temperatures and acids.
As a result, this inactive keratin protein is of no practical use inside the human body. At best, it can be used in topical cosmetic and skin care products.
This has changed thanks to a revolutionary technology that gently solubizes keratin obtained from New Zealand sheep’s wool, and maintains its bioactivity.
The end result is a natural soluble keratin protein called Cynatine® HNS.
With Cynatine® HNS, for the first time, you have a natural keratin ingredient that is safe, can be digested by your body, and remains bioavailable.
Cynatine® HNS is made from keratin extracted from premium quality pure New Zealand wool. The wool comes from carefully chosen farmers located in the Canterbury area of New Zealand that provide complete traceability.
Sheep farmed on New Zealand’s unspoiled high country grow a thick fleece of wool to protect themselves from the harsh winter. This wool is harvested during spring by shearing, which is like a haircut using electronic clippers.
Once they have been shorn, the animals return to the fields to continue grazing and raising their young, free of their heavy fleece during the long, hot summer. The fleece grows back in fall, ready for the coming winter.
No animals are harmed at any stage of the wool harvesting process.
Biotin and Silicon from Plants, Not Chemicals
TrueHNS™ is formulated with an organic biotin- which comes from the sesbania plant - and organic bamboo extract that is 75% silica (silicon).
Since these are “whole food based” nutrients, they’re believed to be much more bioavailable than the synthetic biotin found in most other products.
Both of these ingredients are supplied by Orgenetics®, Inc. was founded in 2007 by Dr. Jit Maheshvari (who has a Ph.D. in Organic Chemistry) on the principle that not all vitamins are equal.
Instead, he introduced a much healthier option to the industry and the world: 100% USDA Certified Organic vitamins and minerals from fruits, vegetables, and botanicals.
This goal was made possible thanks to a new patent pending water extraction process invented by Orgenetics® and its partners. It gave the company the ability to extract a concentrated form of all-natural and 100% organic vitamins from various fruits and vegetables along with existing co-nutrients of the same botanicals - similar to what you consume from food.
Only water is used during this extraction process - there’s no solvents excipients or carriers. Absolutely no synthetics or additives are used - and nothing is fermented.
Since its founding, Orgenetics® has received many accolades and awards for continuing to innovate through a dedicated research program and maintaining an exceptionally high quality for organic ingredients.
And today, Orgenetics® offers a fully vertically integrated organic solution, from organic farm to ingredient.
Along with the vitamins and some key minerals, you get hundreds of cofactors (such as enzymes, bioflavonoids and antioxidants) naturally found in foods which your body is used to ingesting.
All of the foods used by Orgenetics® are grown on a USDA certified organic 400 acre farm in India.
This farm does things the old fashioned way. You won’t find any chemical pesticides, fertilizers or GMOs here.
Instead of harmful chemicals, the farmers use methods like composting, crop rotation and inter-planting to control weeds and pests, replenish the soil and sustain the health of the environment.
This farm meets or exceeds all of the organic farming standards set by both the USDA National Organic Program and the European Union Organic Program. It is also certified Kosher.
What’s more, Orgenetics® adopted a cGMP standard far ahead of the guidelines proposed to the industry by the United States Food & Drug Administration (FDA). In fact, Orgenetics® has been asked to be part of creating analytical methods for the Indian Herbal Pharmacopeia by the Indian Food and Drug Administration.
To support quality control (QC), the company has built an in-house laboratory, which is furnished with state of the art equipment.
QC managers assure that quality standards are met at various steps of the manufacturing process. Prior to an ingredient being released, final checks using the following tests are performed:
This commitment to quality and innovation makes Orgenetics® the perfect partner for TrueHNS™. Instead of man-made vitamins created in some lab, you get pure, organic whole food vitamins with cofactor nutrients for optimized health.
