Most frequent questions and answers
nailKALM® is a highly efficacious non-toxic antifungal dermaceutical cream, clinically proven to overcome fungal infections, helps protect the skin to reduce the risk of reinfection. (REF 1,2 below)
(Note: our clinical evidence is mainly to remove the fungus but NOT prevent infection)
nailKALM® is made from an active, patented ingredient called AMYCOT® which is derived from a powerful natural ingredient derived from Arthrospira maxima (Spirulina), a naturally occurring cyanobacterium or microalgae. The bio-source of this product has its origin in one of the earliest forms of plant life on our planet earth and has been used as a food source for centuries. (REF 3 below)
The antifungal activity of AMYCOT® is due to a putative enzymatic action that destroys the chitin/chitosan polymers found in the fungal cell wall. Damage to the polymers causes the fungal walls to collapse, eventually killing the fungus (fungicidal). AMYCOT also has other components that reduces inflammation and promotes skin and nail growth. (REF 3 below)
Clinical trials have confirmed that results occur in 90 days where the fungi are eliminated (REF 1,2 below). We suggest following this duration for your treatment.
However, depending on the severity of the infection it can take much longer. One should also note that even if the fungi are eliminated the appearance of the nail may take a while to change back to normal since it takes time to grow a new nail and varies from person to person.
Fungal infections of the fingernails or toenails will never go away on their own. (REF 4 below).
Since Onychomycosis has specific characteristic features, the initial diagnosis is made by a visual examination of your nails. However, some nails which might appear to be a fungal nail infection are not and will not be treated. Confirmation of fungal infection is best done by a podiatrist or dermatologist to determine presence of fungal infection. (REF 4 below).
If not treated, a fungal infection is likely to get worse and spread to other parts of the nail, the nail bed, and possibly the surrounding skin.
Over time, the whole nail may become infected and damaged and may eventually fall out. Untreated fungal infections have been associated with chronic diseases and can develop complications such as foot ulcers in diabetics (REF 4 below).
Although there have been no specific trials with pregnant or breast-feeding mothers to date, during our clinical trials there have been no reported toxicity in humans whatsoever whilst using nailKALM (REF 1,2 below). Consult your doctor before use if you have any queries. The bio-active ingredient used in nailKALM® (AMYCOT®) is natural and made from organically-certified Spirulina, a micro-organism, which is a popular health food and has been consumed for centuries. (REF 3 below).
