Your body requires specific nutrients in order to function optimally and perform at its best, and your hair, skin, and nails are no different! The majority of hair, skin, and nails are composed of collagen, a structural protein that’s naturally produced by the body.
However, as we age, our body’s internal collagen production begins to drastically decline, which can take a huge toll on the appearance and health of our hair, skin, and nails. Soon enough, you may start noticing that your nails are more brittle, your hair has lost its shine, and your skin is wrinkled. Although age is inevitable, there are several vitamins, minerals, and natural herbs that have powerful anti-aging effects.
But with so many options for beauty supplements, how do you know which one to choose? Instead of buying multiple products and hoping for the best, just grab a bottle of American Made Nutrition Cosmo!

Cosmo is great on its own, but it also stacks well with the following supplements:
Vitamin A is a fat-soluble vitamin that’s crucial for eye health, cell growth and differentiation, immune system function, cellular communication, and reproduction. Vitamin A is actually a collective name for a group of retinoids, including retinol, retinyl esters, and retinal.
Vitamin C is a water-soluble vitamin that serves as a powerful antioxidant, meaning that it helps protect cells from oxidative damage induced by free radicals. Vitamin C is also required for the production of collagen, the main structural protein found in connective tissue, L-carnitine, a fatty acid transporter, and various neurotransmitters that help relay chemical signals. Furthermore, vitamin C is involved in protein metabolism to some extent.
Calcium is one of the most abundant minerals in the body and is crucial for optimal muscle function, vascular constriction and dilation, hormone secretion, nerve transmission, and intracellular communication. Calcium is also necessary to support the structure and function of bones and teeth. As we mentioned earlier, vitamin D is essential for the absorption of calcium, which is why AMN includes both in Cosmo.
Iron is a mineral that’s essential for the formation of hemoglobin, a red blood cell protein that helps transport oxygen throughout the body. Iron is also used to create myoglobin, a slightly different protein that specifically transports oxygen to muscles. Furthermore, iron contributes to muscle metabolism, connective tissue development, cellular function, hormone production, and neurological development.
Vitamin D is a fat-soluble vitamin that’s required for the absorption of calcium and helps maintain appropriate levels of phosphorus. Therefore, vitamin D is extremely important for promoting overall bone health. Vitamin D also plays a role in immune and neuromuscular function, glucose metabolism, and cell growth.
Similar to vitamin A, vitamin E is a collective name for a group of eight different fat-soluble compounds that express potent antioxidant properties. Since vitamin E is an antioxidant, it defends against free radicals and reactive oxygen species. Vitamin E is also involved in the immune system, gene expression, and cellular signaling.
Thiamin, also known as vitamin B1, is a water-soluble vitamin that’s important for energy metabolism. The primary metabolically active form of thiamin in the body is called thiamin diphosphate, which acts as a cofactor for various enzymes that help metabolize proteins, fats, and carbohydrates.
Vitamin B6 is a water-soluble vitamin and a generic name for six different vitamers that share similar functions. Vitamin B6 acts as a coenzyme, so it’s incorporated into various bodily functions, such as protein, carbohydrate, and lipid metabolism, hemoglobin synthesis, gluconeogenesis, and neurotransmitter production. Similar to riboflavin, vitamin B6 also helps maintain normal levels of homocysteine.
Folate is a water-soluble vitamin that belongs to the B-vitamin family, so it’s sometimes referred to as vitamin B9. Folate is a coenzyme and is primarily involved in the synthesis of nucleic acids, including DNA and RNA. But folate is also used for amino acid metabolism. Folate is especially important for carrying out the conversion of homocysteine to methionine. Since folate helps facilitate the synthesis of a methyl donor called S-adenosyl-methionine, it may assist in the reduction of homocysteine levels.
Vitamin B12 is a water-soluble vitamin that also contains a mineral called cobalt. Vitamin B12 is required for optimal DNA synthesis, red blood cell production, and neurological function. Vitamin B12 is also a cofactor for an enzyme called methionine synthase, which is responsible for the conversion of homocysteine to methionine.
Biotin is another water-soluble vitamin that belongs to the B vitamin family. Similar to the other B vitamins, biotin mainly acts as a cofactor for various enzymes. Therefore, it’s indirectly involved in the metabolism of protein, carbohydrates, and lipids. Biotin is also incorporated in cellular signalling and gene regulation.
Pantothenic acid, also known as vitamin B5, is a water-soluble vitamin that’s most notably used for the formation of coenzyme A (CoA). Coenzyme A is crucial for numerous catabolic and anabolic physiological processes, including fatty acid oxidation. Without a sufficient amount of coenzyme A, the body’s ability to convert food substrates (carbohydrates, fats, and proteins) into energy would be significantly diminished.
Magnesium is a mineral that serves as a cofactor for hundreds of different enzymes in the body. Therefore, it plays a role in protein synthesis, blood pressure regulation, muscle/nerve function, and blood glucose regulation. Moreover, magnesium is used for energy production, DNA and RNA synthesis, bone development, and glutathione formation. Since magnesium is necessary for the transport of potassium and calcium, it’s important for optimal muscle contraction, nerve conduction, and even maintenance of a normal heart rhythm.
Zinc is an essential mineral that contributes to immune function, cell proliferation, protein synthesis, wound healing, cellular metabolism, DNA synthesis, and normal growth/development. Since the body has no way of storing zinc, it’s crucial to intake an adequate amount of zinc daily.
Manganese is an essential trace mineral and cofactor for several enzymes, including arginase, manganese superoxide dismutase, and pyruvate carboxylase. Therefore, manganese contributes to the metabolism of glucose, amino acids, and cholesterol, scavenging of free radicals, reproduction, bone development/growth, and immune function. Along with vitamin K, manganese helps with hemostasis and the formation of blood clots as needed.
Potassium is a trace mineral and electrolyte that’s crucial for optimal muscle function and nerve transmission. Furthermore, potassium helps facilitate the growth of new skin cells and keeps your skin hydrated.
Para-aminobenzoic acid (PABA), also known as vitamin B10, is an organic compound that’s found in some foods, such as mushrooms, whole grains, and spinach. PABA seems to act as a natural sun-blocking agent, therefore it may be capable of protecting the skin from harmful UV rays. Moreover, PABA can potentially help with the repigmentation of premature gray hair.
L-tyrosine is a direct precursor to three important neurotransmitters:
These neurotransmitters are crucial components of your sympathetic nervous system, which is activated during exercise. Excessive physical and/or mental stress can significantly deplete your neurotransmitters. So restoring their levels primes your body for performance and fat loss.
Supplementing with L-tyrosine may:
Horsetail extract is a herb that contains high amounts of silica, which is attributed to its ability to stimulate hair growth. Horsetail extract also contains cysteine and selenium, two beneficial nutrients that enhance hair growth, strength, and appearance.
Fo-ti is a herb that’s native to China, Japan, and Taiwan. Fo-ti has been historically used in traditional Chinese medicine to treat skin disorders and prevent common signs of aging. Fo-ti is believed to be effective at restoring the color of gray hair and preventing premature aging.
Similar to horsetail extract, bamboo extract is also rich in silica, a naturally occurring mineral that supports bone, skin, and hair health. Furthermore, the bamboo extract contains other beneficial nutrients, compounds, and antioxidant that supports digestion, heart health, and the immune system.
Nettle root, also known as stinging nettle, is a plant that’s rich in several nutrients, such as vitamins, minerals, amino acids, pigments, and polyphenols. Because of its comprehensive phytochemistry, stinging nettle is a potent anti-inflammatory agent.
Peony is a flowering plant that contains paeoniflorin, which may be beneficial for skin health. Peony also acts as an antioxidant and offers several other health benefits.
Spirulina is an organism that’s classified as cyanobacteria, due to its vibrant blue-green color. Due to its rich nutritional properties, spirulina has numerous health-boosting properties, such as:
In regards to skin health, spirulina may help the skin heal faster and protect the skin from toxins and free radicals.
Saw palmetto is a specific type of palm that’s commonly used to balance hormone levels, reduce inflammation, and decrease hair loss. Saw palmetto contains various bioactive constituents that serve as antioxidants, which reduces free radical damage. Moreover, saw palmetto may be able to reduce oily skin by decreasing androgen levels.
Plant sterols have the ability to mimic cholesterol due to their similar chemical structure. This allows plant sterols to inhibit the reduction of cholesterol in specific skin cells. Therefore, plant sterols may protect against photo-aging by decreasing photosensitivity.
Alfalfa is a flowering plant that’s rich in antioxidants, which gives it the ability to scavenge free radicals and protect healthy cells from oxidative stress. Alfalfa may also decrease cholesterol levels, promote metabolic health, and decrease symptoms associated with menopause.
Barley grass contains high amounts of vitamins C, A, and selenium, three powerful antioxidants. By fighting off free radicals, these antioxidants can improve skin elasticity and appearance.
