What heals the skin?

The vitamin E inside Bitter Gold is what promotes skin healing. Vitamin E plays a vital role within the body, including nails. This vitamin is required for the proper function of many organs within the body and is also an antioxidant, which means it helps to slow down processes that damage cells. Bitter Gold also contains Aloe Vera which is rich in phytochemicals that can ease pain, reduce inflammation and promote healing.

The silica inside Bitter Gold is what helps strengthen the nail. Your body needs silica to help form collagen, the protein responsible for keeping your skin smooth and unlined. Silica also facilitates your body’s absorption of calcium, contributing to strong, healthy bones.
