About Enhanced FernBlock® with Red Orange Complex
FernBlock® is a natural extract derived from the fern plant Polypodium leucotomos. Used as a sunburn remedy by native Indians for centuries, this natural fern extract has been formulated by international scientists affiliated with leading institutions.
During a decade of clinical trials, FernBlock® has shown remarkable effectiveness in shielding skin against dangerous ultraviolet exposure.(1-6) Studies have shown that this fern extract has a high affinity for skin tissue and helps protect against ultraviolet damage shown to cause premature skin aging and wrinkling.(7,8)
Red Orange Complex, a standardized extract that is obtained from three red orange varieties-Citrus sinensis var. Moro, Tarocco, and Sanguinello.
The main active phenolic compounds include anthocyanins, flavanones and hydroxycinnamic acids (as well as ascorbic acid),(12) which work together to support the body's natural photoprotection against ultraviolet radiation.(13,14) They do so by helping to balance the body's normal inflammation response,(15) free-radical defense mechanism,(16) and healthy apoptotic (cell death) activity.(16)
In a controlled human trial, 15 days of oral supplementation with Red Orange Complex was demonstrated to measurably support natural skin defenses against ultraviolet radiation.(14)
