Sunprotection in a Pill – HeliocareÂ®
FERNDALE, Mich., April 28, 2011 /PRNewswire/ — Sunscreen is an important part of sun protection, but it’s not complete protection. Currently no FDA measurements for UVA protection exist; a high SPF can create a sense of false security for consumers, who assume complete protection from ultra-violet radiation when that’s not the case! Improper application is another issue. Unfortunately in this hurried society, regular application and re-application is often inadequate or compromised.
There is another way to increase sun protection: Heliocare! This natural, organic capsule, taken daily, will provide increased defense against ultraviolet radiation. And because it is a pill, it’s simple to use and overrides the application inconsistencies of sunscreens. More importantly, it provides significant protection against UVA damage.
Dr. Angela Bowers-Plott, Southlake Dermatology, Southlake, TX, is a Heliocare advocate. As she explains: “the sun that’s coming through is damaging the DNA every day; a little bit here and there adds up. [Heliocare] helps correct sun damage that’s occurring past the sunscreen stage. The great thing about a systemic sunscreen is that it doesn’t miss a spot.”
Heliocare is the only proven, effective form of oral sun protection providing systemic defense from the sun’s damaging rays. Each capsule contains 240 mg of Fernblock(TM) (Polypodium leucotomos extract) to protect skin structure and immune response, repair DNA and scavenge UV-induced reactive oxygen species, helping protect against sun-related effects and aging.
Joel L. Cohen, MD, AboutSkin Dermatology, Denver, CO, recommends Heliocare to his patients who experience over 300 days of sunshine each year compounded by high-altitude (increasing UV penetration). “I recommend Heliocare; studies have shown that this fern extract has a high affinity for skin. I have my patients take one capsule every day and an additional capsule when they’re in the sun for extended periods of time…especially patients who’ve had skin cancer or a family history of skin cancer,” Cohen states.
