Polybalm and nail damage

Hello, I was reading the Cancernet UK website and a recent blog about a new product called Poly balm. I thought that some of you may be interested in it. It is a cream that is completely natural and contains a mixture of polyphenol rich essential oils. It is designed to help those who experience nail damage as a result of chemotherapy.

Trials were carried out in Bedford and Addenbrooke's Cmbridge University hospitals along with the hospital of integrated medicine and Great Ormond St. and was supported by the National Cncer Research Institute.

Trials have been very positive and if you want to know more or even buy some then visit the Polybalm website.
