Heliocare is an oral dietary supplement which protects your skin from the effects of the sun. UV from the sun or from a sun or sun lamp has many detrimental effects on the skin. It can directly cause DNA damage and it can create free radicals. Free radicals cause direct cellular damage and this damage is responsible for the premature aging effects on skin.
Although sunscreen lotions provide varied levels of protection against UVB and UVA radiation and protect from burning, they cannot completely stop all harmful UV rays from penetrating the skin. Heliocare works by sustaining the skin's natural ability to deal with sun (UV) related effects and aging.
Heliocare contains antioxidants which are shown to ?mop up? free radicals before they damage important cellular proteins. Heliocare brings together the unique properties of Polypodium leucotomos fern extract in combination with Green Tea extract and Beta-Carotene which are other powerful natural antioxidants. As a result it offers significant antioxidant properties to care for the skin:
Adults: (no specific study in patients under the age of 18 has occured)
For sun protection: For optimal results, combine with high SPF topical sunscreens and take one capsule daily in the morning. If intense sunlight exposure is expected during the day, take one additional capsule at noon.
As an antioxidant or for photoaging protection: Take one capsule daily.
