In a clinical study, women who received Lustriva experienced thicker hair and a nearly 20% increase in hair growth in as little as three weeks. Participants also experienced improved skin texture and a 10% reduction in the appearance of wrinkles in just 12 weeks, per Nutrition21.

The ingredient is appropriate for dietary supplements, functional foods, gummies and gels, and ready-to-drink beverages in a clinical dose of 160 mg.
