Beauty is only Skin Deep

Nutritional Ingredients to Protect our Skin from the Sun

It is of common knowledge that skin cancer is currently one of the most common forms of cancer, whose prevalence has more than doubled in the last 2 decades. Therefore, it is very important to protect your skin and avoid skin damage due to excess sun exposure, which in recent years has become more dangerous as a consequence of climatic changes.

In addition, many people mistakenly believe that sun protection must only be applied when on the beach. However, most of our exposure is during our daily tasks. For this reason, we must be aware of protecting our skin daily. Products that contain polypodium or Nutroxsun®, which have been clinically proven to protect our skin from excess sun exposure, can contribute to avoiding any future skin problem.

Polypodium leucotomos has been scientifically and clinically proven to reduce skin redness and protects cells from sun damage. Also, it helps preserve immune cells specialized in combating skin cancer while inhibiting the collagen destruction.

NutroxSun® increases cell survival in UVB exposed human keratinocytes and inhibits the Reactive Oxygen Species (ROS) generation. It is the only compound offering a significant antimutagenic activity both before (>70%) and after (>55%) y-irradiation treatments.

Protecting our skin must be a part of our daily habits, in the same manner, that we have healthy eating habits and exercise regularly in order to be in good physical and mental condition. This is the goal of Monteloeder, to help people be healthy, which includes recommending the use of a broad-spectrum UVA-UVB daily protector in combination with oral supplements containing Polypodium or NutroxSun®.

For further information about studies and applications of NutroxSun®, please feel free to contact Monteloeder.
