Cystiphane Biorga is a dietary supplement L-Cystine, Vitamin B6, arginine and zinc associates. L-Cystine (a sulfur-containing amino acid) is one of the essential components of the hair and the nails and to a lesser extent, of the skin. L-cystine contributes to the synthesis of keratin of the hair and nails. It accelerates the proliferation of keratin cells and affects the growth of hair and nails positive. Elevated cystine levels appear, especially in the hair from 4 to 6 weeks after ingestion. Vitamin B6 is very important in the use of L-cystine. It allows the incorporation of L-cystine in the zones where keratin is formed. The nutritional balance between L-cystine and vitamin B6 is necessary because a deficiency of vitamin B6 reduced incorporation of L-cystine in the hair and nails with it.
Arginine is an amino acid present in high concentrations in the active hair follicles. It has a complementary operation, and synenergische with L-Cystine. Zinc is also necessary in the formation of keratin. Moreover, it possesses an inhibitory activity against an enzyme that is responsible for hair loss.
