Backed by science
There is well-founded scientific and published research to support this concept.
There are a number of wellness products available to help improve the health of your skin, hair, and nails. Our director of wellness product development, Thira Burns, doesn’t like the spotlight, but we convinced her to explain. Burns holds a BS in clinical nutrition from UC Davis and an MS in nutritional science from San Jose State University, and is a registered nutritionist. She has thick, silky hair and glowing skin and a sharp mind. These are her favorite tools for internal and external benefit.
Burns’ team reviews documentation to verify the purity and quality of the supplements that Goop carries by diving into third-party testing and double-blind ingredient studies. So she knows that these products are made according to current FDA Good Manufacturing Practices. And she knows the label’s claims are backed by research.
Beauty in a Bottle contains ingredients associated with beauty such as MSM and biotin. But it’s also a multivitamin in disguise. Dr. Nigma Talib – the naturopath who designed it – knows the value of niacinamide, selenium, and vitamins A, C, and E for skin health. And she knows the value of a rounded multi in supporting all cells: those who show and those who don’t. *

Keep B famous in case you want a heavy boost on B vitamins. The B vitamins are essential for a well-functioning brain and metabolism. But – here a general issue – they also contribute to healthy skin, hair and nails. *

The third product in Dr. Nigma’s Trio – my colleague Gerda Endemann is currently taking all three – contains generous amounts of vitamins D and K. You might want these for looks: to support strong, healthy bones. Or you appreciate their value for inner beauty, ie for your cardiovascular and immune systems. *

Magnesium is good for almost every physical process, but magnesium threonate in particular supports the brain and healthy cognition. It comes in a liposomal gel that is meant to be consumed in one go. *

House of Waris Sweet Clarity tea is great for an afternoon break-in. It is made from organic ingredients. I love that it has soothing tulsi (also known as holy basil), and the mix of it with energizing rhodiola is just right. *

SkinTē’s green tea-grapefruit flavor – a sparkling, refreshing drink – contains hibiscus, hawthorn, passion flower and nettle. It’s lightly sweetened with erythritol. And it contains 3,000 milligrams of collagen peptides. There is nothing like this or as good as this product.

It was incredibly rewarding to design Nerd Alert. It was so satisfying to be able to work the perfect amounts of L-theanine and caffeine into a café-au-lait-flavored chew and organic raw cane sugar. There is great clinical research out there to show the benefits of this combination for memory and attention. People who don’t want to drink coffee after lunchtime can try one of these instead. *
