Fungal Nail Infections with Abicin Resin
Have you had a good look at your toenails
recently? It’s not a very glamorous subject, but you may have
noticed a bit of discolouring of the nails or that they have
become cloudy. As we get older, we also become more susceptible
to nail problems. Other health conditions can also give rise to
changes in the nail appearance.
New Abicin lacquer is a natural based product
which utilises the antifungal properties of Norwegian Spruce
Resin. It has been developed by Finnish Scientists who
recognised the traditional use of Spruce Resin in Finnish folk
remedies. Having analysed the composition of the resin, they
identified the reasons why it acts on both bacteria and fungi –
including the ones responsible for nail infections.
These occur as a result of infection of the keratin layer under
the nail by a fungus called a dermatophyte. These infections can
be difficult to treat and may affect up to 10% of the population
in the UK at any one time. Their incidence increases with age.
If you are aged over 60, there is a one in five chance you will
have a nail infection and if you have diabetes, this increases
to a one in three chance. Half of those aged over 70 will have a
For the first time, a naturally sourced antifungal lacquer has
been shown to be effective in clearing fungal nail infections,
cleanly and simply with a twice a week usage. Treat your toes to
a naturally based remedy. Time to give Abicin a try before it
