SPF You Eat and Drink!

Dark Chocolate - SPF you can eat!Wouldn’t you rather eat or drink something that makes your skin less sensitive to UVA/UVB radiation? Can you imagine eating and drinking something that would protect your skin cells from getting a sunburn or skin cancer?

I can!

Here’s what you can eat and drink for Edible SPF:

Eat ~

  • SStrawberries, tomatoes and leafy greenstrawberries – contain anthocyanins, which are sun protective antioxidants, a cupful a day.
  • Tomatoes – filled with another powerful antioxidant, Lycopene, better in cooked form like tomato paste. Eating daily leads to less sunburn.
  • Chocolate – YAY! As little as 3.5 ounces of Dark Chocolate, or the equivalent in a chocolate drink, provided less sun damage due to antioxidants called flavanols.
  • Omega-3 Fatty Acids- daily intake over 5 months showed double the body’s immune protection against low UV levels.
  • Leafy Greens – super antioxidant Beta Carotene, helps reduce the risk of sunburn.

All of the above can be purchased at your local open air market or grocery store. Fresher is better. Always.

Drink ~

Polypodium – in extract form in a drink. Comes from a fern, has strong anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, and sun damage protection properties when ingested.

Can be found in a 1 ounce daily beverage Lifeoxylin Cellular Defense Elixir that includes a whole host of healthy fruits and vegetable in the ingredient profile.liefoxylin

No more skin cancers have shown up for me since I’ve been drinking it every day. My fair skinned, blue eyed, mountain biking husband also a daily drinker, has not had any skin cancer nor does he get sunburned when he rides. Even our Dermatologist is amazed!

What are you waiting for? Go shopping for ALL of the above!
