New Sun Protection from a Pill.Unique Oral Sun Protection Supplement Now Also Offers Protection From Stress-Induced Premature Skin Aging
FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. -- Last year, Life Extension([R]) introduced FernBlock([R]), the revolutionary oral supplement that acts to inhibit the damaging effects of solar radiation solar radiation,
n the emission and diffusion of actinic rays from the sun. Overexposure may result in sunburn, keratosis, skin cancer, or lesions associated with photosensitivity. . This fern extract was proven to inhibit sun damage by blocking absorption of harmful ultraviolet rays Ultraviolet rays
Invisible light rays with a wavelength shorter than that of visible light but longer than that of x rays.

Rapid cooling, as by immersion in oil or water, of a metal object from the high temperature at which it is shaped. Quenching is usually done to maintain mechanical properties that would be lost with slow cooling. DNA-corrupting free radicals. It( )also diminishes results of excessive UV radiation by favorably altering changes in skin cells that cause premature skin aging.
Sun exposure is not the only cause of accelerated skin aging. Stress releases a wave of hormones like cortisol cortisol (kôr`tĭsôl') or hydrocortisone, steroid hormone that in humans is the major circulating hormone of the cortex, or outer layer, of the adrenal gland. that can prematurely age skin. The herb ashwagandha reduces cortisol to protect and enhance psychological health. In a recent study, 125 mg of a patented ashwagandha extract taken once daily led to a 14.5% reduction in cortisol levels in 98 individuals. It also resulted in a 13.2% increase in levels of the anti-aging hormone DHEA DHEA dehydroepiandrosterone.
n dehydroepiandrosterone, a hormone precursor, exists naturally in yams. . Ashwagandha-treated subjects experienced up to 62% reduction in anxiety levels compared with no change in the placebo group.
Enhanced Fernblock([R]) with Sendara([TM]) is formulated with a powerful antioxidant antioxidant, substance that prevents or slows the breakdown of another substance by oxygen. Synthetic and natural antioxidants are used to slow the deterioration of gasoline and rubber, and such antioxidants as vitamin C (ascorbic acid), butylated hydroxytoluene and a natural herb that protects skin from internal damage from emotional stress. Enhanced Fernblock([R]) also contains Phyllanthus emblica, an antioxidant. This extract blocks a chemical reaction that generates skin-damaging free radicals to shield skin from destruction of collagen and other dermal dermal /der·mal/ (der´mal) pertaining to the dermis or to the skin.
