Drinkable Sun Protection? Lycored

Technorati Tags: ,,,,

I’m a little skeptic about supplements and foods that claim to protect you from the sun. I believe the best and most effective way to avoid UV-radiation to be a strong sun screen (which we should wear on a daily basis!)

LycoRed, Israel, developed a natural tomato carotenoid composition of lycopene, phytoene and phytofluene, all highly unsaturated yellow to red pigments occurring in plants and animals. With claims that this supplement could protect the skin from harmful UV rays, LycoRed is taken orally.

Personally I wouldn’t rely on a product like for sun protection and it certainly doesn’t replace topical sunscreen.
