KeraGEN-IV® is a natural of the fingernails, hair and skin.
Keratin supports the body’s ability to make collagen IV and VII, which are only synthesized in the human body, irreplaceable by dietary collagen. These unique collagens are responsible for skin strength, elasticity, and for strong anchoring of hair in the hair follicle. While keratin from animal sources are insoluble and indigestible, our unique keratin formulation sets us apart.
KeraGEN-IV®, is a pure keratin protein that is gently extracted to make it fully bioactive and digestible. KeraGEN-IV® is made from sheep’s wool keratin, which is 91% homologous to human keratin. But unlike bovine collagen, keraGEN-IV® is considered vegetarian-friendly, because sheep’s wool is renewable; the animal simply grows more wool after it is sheared.
Keratin has been shown to improve the health of skin, hair & nails1,2:
Studies with KeraGEN-IV® in human keratinocytes have shown that increased collagen IV expression is induced by the protein3. Further preclinical work demonstrated that collagen IV expression is induced around the hair follicle4.
