I love being out in the sun

I love hanging out at the beach. I love reading outside by the pool. I love driving with the top down. I love working outside in my garden. I don’t think about being in the sun a full day or five minutes. 

I have found that I can be in the direct sunlight, get my vitamin D intake and keep my skin completely normal! No hint of sunburn … 

I used to go out in the sun, and later that day have a burnt red nose.

I never liked to smear on smelly lotions and sunscreens. I think they are toxic.

Now I take a natural compound that helps protect me from sunburn from the inside out versus outside-in. 

The best sun protection capsule I’ve seen is called Celepro by Metagenics. It combines nutrients in a unique formula tailored to meet your skin’s specific needs. It doesn’t “block” the sun. Instead it changes the way your skin responds to sunlight internally-at the cellular level.

For skin wrinkles, finger nail strength and better fuller hair I’ve been taking Regenemax from XYMOGEN. 

 

What’s Hiding in Your Sunscreen?

A lot of the chemicals in sunscreens actually pose serious health risks. In fact sunscreens are little more than nasty cocktails of dangerous chemical agents.

Here’s a sample of what you’re likely to find on the label of your favorite sunscreen:

Chemicals
Commonly Found
In Commercial Sunscreens

Dangerous Side Effects

1. Parabens

“Endocrine disruptors,” these gender-bending chemicals mimic estrogen, upset your hormonal balance, and can cause various reproductive cancers in men and women

2. PABA (may be listed as octyl-dimethyl or padimate-O)

Attacks DNA and causes genetic mutation when exposed to sunlight

3. Mineral oil, paraffin, petrolatum

Coats skin like plastic and clogs pores, trapping toxins in, slows skin cell growth, disrupts normal hormone function, suspected of causing cancer

4. Sodium laurel, lauryl sulfate, sodium laureth sulfate (sometimes listed as “from coconut” or “coconut derived”

Combined with other chemicals, it becomes nitrosamine, a powerful cancer-causing agent; penetrates your skin’s moisture barrier, allowing other dangerous chemicals to enter your bloodstream

5. Phenol carbolic acid

Circulatory collapse, paralysis, convulsions, coma, death from respiratory failure

6. Acrylamide

Breast cancer

Octyl-methoxycinnamate (OMC)

Kills skin cells

7. Toluene (may be listed as benzoic, benzyl, or butylated hydroxtoluene

Anemia, low blood cell count, liver and kidney damage, birth defects

8. Propylene glycol

Dermatitis, kidney and liver abnormalities, prevents skin growth, causes irritation

9. PEG, polysorbates, laureth, ethoxylated alcohol

Potent carcinogens containing dioxane

Sunlight no longer has to pose a threat. The antioxidants  in Celepro are powerful free radical fighters.

Foods For Smoother Healthier Skin

Almonds contain vitamin E, which supports healthy skin and helps defend against sun damage. Volunteers who consumed about 20 almonds daily and then were exposed to UV light burned less than those who took none. Vitamin E is  an antioxidant that protects against the ravages of free radicals.
Canned Tuna contains Selenium. This nutrient features immune support & helps preserve elastin, a protein that keeps your skin smooth and tight. The antioxidant is also believed to buffer against the sun (it stops free radicals created by UV exposure from damaging cells).
A supplement called
E-400 Selenium by Metagenics features selenium & natural-source vitamin E.
Flaxseeds &  small  cold water fish contain omega-3 fatty acids, which have been shown to support the healthy function of multiple body systems. Omega 3’s help erase spots and iron out fine lines. The British Journal of Nutrition reported that participants in one study who ate about half a teaspoon daily of omega-3s in 6 weeks experienced significantly less irritation and redness, along with better-hydrated skin. Salmon is also a great source of omega 3. My recommendation for omega 3 fatty acids is EPA-DHA 720 from Metagenics.
Cooked Tomatoes contain Lycopene, the phytochemical that makes tomatoes red. Lycopene helps promote the healthy function and aging of cells. It also helps protect against free radical damage  caused by ultraviolet rays. Cooking tomatoes helps concentrate its lycopene levels, so tomato sauce, tomato paste, and even ketchup count. Watermelon is also a good source.
Green Tea releases catechin, an antioxidant with proven anti-inflammatory and anticancer properties. Research found that drinking 2 to 6 cups a day not only helps prevent skin cancer but might also reverse the effects of sun damage by neutralizing the changes that appear in sun-exposed skin.
In my own personal experience when I take a supplement called Celepro (Metagenics) which is a combination of  Green Tea Leaf Extract, D-Limonene (from Sweet Orange Peel Oil), Lycopene, and Turmeric, I don’t get sunburn when I’m outside exposed to the sun.
Sweet Potatoes,  Papaya, Carrots & Oranges contain vitamin C, which smoothes out wrinkles by stimulating the production of collagen, the main component of healthy connective tissue. A study in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition found that volunteers who consumed 4 milligrams of C (about half a small sweet potato) daily for 3 years decreased the appearance of wrinkles by 11 percent.
Spinach contains folate which helps maintain and repair DNA. Protecting DNA may reduce the likelihood of cancer-cell growth. In a study published in the International Journal of Cancer, people who ate the most leafy greens had half as many skin tumors over 11 years as those who ate the least.
Safflower Oil & Sunflower Oil contains omega-6 fatty acids which acts as a moisturizer for people who suffer from dry, flaky, or itchy skin. They keep cell walls supple, allowing water to better penetrate the epidermis. Scientists have found that this oil may even help people who suffer from eczema.
Carrots  contain Vitamin A which prevents overproduction of cells in the skin’s outer layer. That means fewer dead cells to combine with sebum and clog pores. Plus, vitamin A supports healthy epithelial tissue and reduces the development of skin-cancer cells.
Dark Chocolate contain the antioxidant Flavonols which reduce roughness in the skin and provide sun protection. In a study from the Journal of Nutrition, women who drank cocoa fortified with a chocolate bar’s worth of flavonols had better skin texture and stronger resistance to UV rays than those who drank significantly few flavonols.
 
The BEST supplement for the skin is REGENEMAX. It helps with wrinkles/fine lines; dry skin; thinning hair; brittle nails. Order from Xymogen @ 1-800-647-6100

Benefits of Green Tea

Green tea has these healthy benefits:
Green tea has been shown to curb some cancers
Green tea helps control blood pressure
Green tea may reduce brain plaques typical of Alzheimer’s patients
Research shows that EGCG (a catechin) is the component of green tea that makes all those benefits possible.

Celepro from Metagenics has 300 mg of Green Tea Leaf Extract in each capsule. www.DrJeffreyTucker.meta-ehealth.com
