Sunlight is radiation from the sun, and two of its significant components are ultraviolet A and ultraviolet B rays. When they contact your skin, these rays create free radicals which damage DNA, cellular structures, proteins, and connective tissue such as collagen and elastin throughout the many layers of your skin. UVA and UVB radiation also induce inflammation, suppress the immune system, and harm the sensitive cells of your eyes. This free radical damage leads to skin aging, wrinkles, sunspots, and even serious health concerns.
UVB rays stimulate the production of Vitamin D in your skin. UVB rays also cause tanning by stimulating specialized skin cells called melanocytes to produce and release more melanin. Unfortunately, tanning (melanin production) is a response to DNA damage: the more melanin released, the more DNA damage. UVB rays are also responsible for causing sunburns.
UVA rays penetrate deeper into your skin than UVB, causing damage to many different skin structures including collagen and elastin. Even thought UVA rays don’t stimulate tanning or produce sunburn, they potentially cause more adverse consequences than UVB and are accountable for a disproportionate share of the blame in the aging of your skin.
Ultraviolet radiation, especially UVA, penetrates deep into your skin to cause damage. Sunsafe Rx contains antioxidants that have specifically been shown to mop up these free radicals before they are able to inflict damage. After taking Sunsafe Rx, these ingredients circulate in your bloodstream and are present throughout the many layers of your skin, giving you protection in not only the outer layers of your skin but also deep within your skin where you would otherwise not be protected.
These efficacious antioxidants in Sunsafe Rx are from food and plant sources. They are the same antioxidants that help protect these plants (and fruits and vegetables) themselves from harmful ultraviolet radiation. And just like vitamins and minerals derived from the food we eat, the protective power of these nutrients can be harnessed in humans.
The powerful, natural antioxidants in Sunsafe Rx help your body quench harmful free radicals created by the sun before they can do extensive damage—protecting your skin and eyes from both UVA and UVB damage.
