AtPhysician’s Choice, we only make supplements that we would take ourselves and feel comfortable giving to our families. That means producing the cleanest, purest, most effective products possible. One way we’re able to achieve this is by using what we call “hero” ingredients.

Hero ingredients are high-quality, ethically sourced, and backed by extensive research that demonstrates their effectiveness. Cynatine HNS is an example of a hero ingredient—one of the key components of ourhair growth vitamin, Total Hair supplement.

What is Cynatine HNS?

Cynatine HNS is a patented, bioavailable form of keratin. Keratin is made naturally in the body,giving strength and structure to the hair, skin, and nail cells. Keratin performs the following functions in the body: 

  • It gives skin its flexibility and helps prevent wrinkles
  • It promotes hair strength and length
  • It strengthens nails and prevents discoloration

Cynatine is referred to as a “cosmeceutical ingredient” because it has science-backed medical properties that are used for cosmetic purposes. Most cosmeceuticals have benefits beyond their beauty-enhancing purposes, but their primary use is in cosmetic applications.

Why do we use Cynatine HNS in our Total Hair supplement?

While it’snot typical for someone to be deficient in keratin, deficiencies can appear in people who don’t eat enough protein. Even if you’re not keratin-deficient, you may not have the hair strength, skin firmness, or nail strength you’d like. That’s where supplements with Cynatine HNS are most useful.

Some keratin, biotin, or collagen supplements aren’t easily absorbable by the body. But Cynatine HNS is water-soluble and breaks down quickly so the body can absorb its nutrients.

How does Cynatine HNS work?

Through its enhanced bioavailability, Cynatine delivers more keratin to the body. Inone controlled study, participants reported significantly less hair loss in just 30 days. The results showed four times less hair loss than participants in the placebo group. At only 500 mg per day, Cynatine HNS proves effective in reducing hair loss.

In the same study, people taking Cynatine saw a significant improvement in how their hair looked and felt (luster, thickness, fullness). About 88% of the people in the Cynatine group saw improvements in hair shininess and brightness within 90 days.

Physician’s Choice Total Hair

In addition to the science-backed, patented Cynatine HNS,Physician’s Choice Total Hair supplement contains EVNOLMax, the only full-spectrum vitamin E on the market. It is made from the concentrated oil of palm fruits and helps reduce hair loss and stimulate follicle regeneration.

Total Hair also contains Bioperine. Bioperine is a patented, science-backed ingredient that helps further enhance the bioavailability of our supplements so that our customers can see the best results possible. Combined with Cynatine HNS, it helps create one of the most bioavailable and effective hair, skin, and nail supplements on the market.
