In this study, Microcore’s oral supplements of Muttaijow ComplexTM obtained from the egg shell that contains naturally occurring collagen Type (I, V, X), Elastin (Desmosine and isodesmosine), Hyaluronic acid, Glucosamine, Chondroitin, Glycosaminoglycans or Muco-polysaccharides, Membrane bound protein molecules, and Calcium are used in a group of volunteers. This study leads to evaluate the impacts of a nutritional intervention as compared to control group (without oral supplements intake) on the appearances of hair, skin, and nails in healthy middle-aged adults. Two pilot studies were run to assess Muttaijow ComplexTM on skin parameter. 1. Self-assessment questionnaire intended to perform an assessment on skin, hair, and nail health after 12 weeks of treatment for a group of 25 female volunteers 2. Evaluated the efficacy of Muttaijow ComplexTM effect of 5-week treatment on hydration of skin by corneometry, on elasticity with the cutometer, and on pigmentation with themexameteron for a group of 7 female volunteers, Microscopic studies of hair strength and nail growth. In study 1-Participants were predominantly satisfied with the effects obtained on general face (100% volunteers satisfied) and body (94% volunteers satisfied) skin condition and skin properties (100% volunteers satisfied with facial skin softness, 95% with facial skin hydration, 83% of facial skin brightness and 89% with body skin hydration) and partly with effects on hair (65-70%volunteers satisfied) and nail appearance (70% volunteers satisfied) and improvement in brittle nails. In this open-label 5 weeks study, Oral Microcore’s Muttaijow ComplexTM ingestion was associated with a significant improvement in skin appearance such as increase skin hydration and skin elasticity, reduces skin pigmentation after 5 weeks treatment and facial skin tone, with significant impact on hair thickness, reduces split ends, hair loss, hair breakage and improvement in hair growth after 5 weeks treatment, increase of 12% nail growth rate and a decrease of 42% brittle nails after 6 weeks. Microcore’s Muttaijow ComplexTM achieved significant change improvement in skin, hair and nail appearance (thickness/density) than control group (without oral supplements intake) by week 12 of the study. From the result analysis, Microcore’s Muttaijow ComplexTM is deemed to be one of the most effective anti-aging products in cosmetic sector and overall physical appearance. Oral supplementation of 500mg/day of Microcore’s Muttaijow ComplexTM for 12 weeks is associated with significant improvement in the appearance of facial skin, hair and nail. Increases in skin hydration and skin elasticity with reduced pigmentation on skin were observed after 5 weeks treatment, which is a very important marker for skin aging. Also, significant impact on hair thickness, reduces split ends, hair loss, hair breakage and improvement in hair growth and healthy development of nails after 5 weeks treatment.
