Nicotinamide promotes healthy DNA function after UV exposure
Shade Factor provides 500 mg of nicotinamide (vitamin B3) that has been shown to promote healthy DNA function after exposure to ultraviolet light.1 Nicotinamide also plays a significant role in boosting the production of ATP (adenosine triphosphate), the energy releasing molecule that fuels all your cells and powers their intracellular machinery.
This is especially important as ultraviolet exposure can affect production of ATP in skin cells, 2, 3 sapping those cells of the energy needed for their protective mechanisms to function properly. Even better, nicotinamide has been shown to support the natural immune response needed to protect against the age-related effects of ultraviolet radiation.1, 4-10
Fern extract promotes healthy DNA function after UV exposure
Shade Factor also contains an extract of the fern Polypodium leucotomos. This extract helps inhibit cellular changes in the skin that can lead to premature aging from outdoor activity and it also works to promote healthy DNA function after ultraviolet exposure.
Red Orange Complex® supports natural photo-protection
Shade Factor also contains Red Orange Complex®, a standardized extract that is obtained from three red orange varieties. Active phenolic compounds, including anthocyanins, flavanones, and hydroxycinnamic acids (as well as ascorbic acid) work together to support the bodys natural photo-protection response against the age-related effects of ultraviolet exposure.7, 11-13
Recent laboratory studies have demonstrated that Red Orange Complex® complements nicotinamides DNA-protective, immune-boosting effects. And unlike lotions and sprays, Shade Factor wont wash off when you swim or sweat. So try Shade Factor today … and nourish all of your skin.
