Researchers Uncover Better Way to Stop Nail Fungus

Nail fungus is a big problem - up to 30 million Americans suffer from it - and until now, there wasn't much that could be done about it. A new discovery out of California, however, may just change all that.

Nail fungus (also called mycotic nails) is actually caused by the same infection that creates athlete's foot, and if left untreated, it can spread to other parts of the body like the hands and groin. That's why there has been such an emphasis in recent years on finding an effective way of treating the infection.

Traditional treatments have focused only on topical treatments - that is, applying a cream or serum to the nail directly. This can help if the fungus is on the outside of the nail, but often the source of the problem lies underneath it, where the treatments can't reach.

This problem led researchers in Burbank to try a new technique: attacking fungus from the inside and out. They combined an oral spray with a topical treatment to target fungus from all angles.

By combining an internal and external treatment mechanism, researchers were able to:

  • Kill nail fungus, eliminating the source of the problem
  • Transform nails that had become thick, yellow, and brittle
  • Prevent infection from spreading

After extensive testing, the formulation has been prepared for public release. As of press time, the only product known to have this exact formula is called ZetaClear, and as of right now it's only available at the company's website.
