Plant extract could offer protection from skin cancer
Business Day
Researchers have found a unique botanical extract that, taken internally, protects skin from solar damage and minimizes the potentially lethal DNA mutations that occur from sun exposure. Nearly a decade of rigorous research and clinical trials has shown that the fern plant, Polypodium leucotomos, can shield the skin against the dangerous effects of ultraviolet exposure. Numerous studies show Polypodium leucotomos reduces the number of sunburn cells following exposure to solar rays, protects against UV-induced DNA damage, reduces inflammation, influences the immune system, acts against tumors and inhibits collagen-degrading enzymes.
