Right for me?
Psoriasis is an autoimmune condition that causes red, raised, scaly patches on the skin caused by skin cell buildup. It is unknown what exactly causes psoriasis to start occurring, although the immune system and genetics seem to be involved and a triggering event (such as stress) may cause a flare up. PsoriaSkin Aid™ supports the formation of healthy skin cells using vitamins, minerals, and herbs. People who suffer from excessive dry, flaking skin can benefit from nutrients that support the proper reproduction of skin cells, and decrease the inflammation that occurs internally.
This formula contains N-acetyl-cysteine and Vitamins A to protect the the body's cell from free radical damage. It also contains Vitamin E and Manganese, which are essential for skin cell health and collagen production. Milk thistle acts to detoxify the liver and provides anti-inflammatory properties for skin health. Vitamin B12 reduces redness, dryness, and inflammation. Folic acid has been shown to improve psoriasis, and many psoriasis sufferers are in fact deficient in folic acid. Vitamin D3 deficiency is strongly associated with psoriasis, and vitamin D3 plays a very important role in regulating keratinocyte growth and differentiation, the main skin cell in the outermost layer of the skin. Selenium can influence the skin's immune reaction by making immune cells more resistant to oxidative stress.
