This Multivitamin Is Packed With Nutrients To Support Hair, Skin & Nails*
And while there are many high-quality, science-backed beauty-centric supplements on the market, one (often overlooked) option is a multivitamin.
The underrated beauty benefits of taking a multivitamin
Multivitamins are most known for their role in helping you meet your daily nutritional needs for vitamins and minerals.*
But mindbodygreen's ultimate multivitamin+ goes above and beyond in terms of comprehensiveness (14 vitamins, 13 minerals, 6 botanicals) and potency. This gives our formula a leg up on effectively addressing hair, skin, and nail concerns.*
Here are the nutrients responsible for some of these (literally) glowing reviews.
Vitamin D is a fat-soluble vitamin that's most known for its role in supporting bone health, but your vitamin D levels can also impact your skin.
About 41% of adults in the U.S. have insufficient levels of vitamin D, and supplements are a helpful (if not vital) way to increase circulating vitamin D levels.*
ultimate multivitamin+ offers 2,000 IU of vitamin D3 (derived from algae).
Biotin (aka vitamin B7) has garnered quite the reputation for being a go-to supplement for hair health. And research shows that not getting enough biotin—although quite rare in the U.S.—may lead to hair shedding, and biotin can provide support.*
mindbodygreen's vice president of scientific affairs, Ashley Jordan Ferira, Ph.D., RDN, previously told us that, "Consumers expect biotin to support hair, skin, and nails3 (aka the beauty trifecta), and their enthusiasm is warranted at the mechanistic level, but the clinical research needs to catch up with this overwhelmingly positive public opinion and broad use."
Ferira also added that she hopes that well-designed clinical trials will be conducted to continue to expand our understanding of biotin's impact on these areas of health.
ultimate multivitamin+ offers 300 micrograms (or 1,000% of the daily value) of biotin.
Vitamin C's antioxidant capabilities also extend to the skin.
ultimate multivitamin+ offers 90 milligrams (or 100% of the daily value) of vitamin C.
ultimate multivitamin+ offers 15 milligrams (or 100% of the daily value) of vitamin E.
Vitamin A is a well-known topical skin care ingredient (as retinol and retinoids), but it can also do wonders as an oral supplement.
It is an essential nutrient for skin, as it acts as an antioxidant and supports the process through which the skin naturally regenerates.*
ultimate multivitamin+ offers 900 micrograms (or 100% of the daily value) of vitamin A.
Zinc is an essential trace mineral that delivers widespread antioxidant benefits—for both immune health and skin health.*
ultimate multivitamin+ offers 11 milligrams (or 100% of the daily value) for zinc.
Multivitamins take a multipronged approach to health. Not every multivitamin out there is equipped to address the beauty trifecta of hair, skin, and nails, but due to its robust and potent ingredient list, ultimate multivitamin+ is.*
