Nature's Sunshine's HSN-W contains two of the richest sources of silica known in the plant kingdom—dulse and horsetail. Silica is converted by the body into calcium to improve the strength and flexibility of body tissues. It also improves skin tone and sheen. Sage acts as a powerful antioxidant and preserves the integrity of body tissues. Rosemary adds additional antioxidant protection. More historical benefits of the herbs are as follows.

What about Biotin?
Part of the B vitamin complex, Biotin has been used by many men and women to thicken and grow their hair (skin and nails, too). However, there are no published scientific studies proving the effectiveness of biotin supplementation. Silica, as found in HSN-W, has been shown to strengthen and thicken hair in several studies.
