What’s in a capsule of SOLEIL

Vitamin A and Organic Carrots (as Beta-Carotene): Beta-carotene, found in carrots, is a skin-friendly nutrient that is converted to vitamin A inside the body. It helps in repairing skin tissues and provides protection against the sun’s harsh rays. Antioxidants and carotenoids protect and condition the skin to increase its immunity against the sun and to heal sunburns. Studies have repeatedly shown that antioxidants like vitamin A are vital to health and longevity.

Vitamin D3 (as Cholecalciferol): Vitamin D is one of the more complex vitamins the human body uses for growth and development. Vitamin D is available in two forms; vitamin D3 is formed when the body synthesizes sunlight on its surface. It mainly occurs through the skin exposure to UVA and UVB rays. Also plays a role in bones health and muscle strength and it also reduces risk of diabetes.

Polypodium Leucotomos Extract: this is a fern native to the tropical and subtropical regions of the Americas. It has a long history of use as a folk remedy in Honduras, where it is used for a wide variety of ailments. It has been available since the 1970s and it is a powerful antioxidant due to its high content of phenolic compounds. It possesses antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties and it reduces UV-induced cell damage, oxidative stress and DNA damage, blocks UV radiation-induced immune suppression and stimulates collagen production.

Grape Seed and Resveratrol (from Polygonum Cuspitatum Root): grapes have been used in traditional treatments in Europe for thousands of years. Resveratrol and grape seed extract are derived from grapes, but unlike grape seed, resveratrol is extracted from grape skins such as those used to make red wine. Although both substances have similar effects in the body, the recommended medicinal use for each is different.A study of healthy volunteers found that taking grape seed extract substantially increased blood levels of antioxidants. Antioxidants are substances that destroy free radicals, which are harmful compounds in the body that damage DNA (genetic material) and even cause cells death. Scientists believe free radicals contribute to the aging process, as well as playing a part in the development of numerous health problems, including heart disease and cancer.

Lutein and Zeaxanthin: these two components are responsible for the yellow color of the macula lutea, which protects against light-dependent reaction. Epidemiological studies provide evidence that an increased consumption of lutein is associated with a lowered risk of age-related macular degeneration, a disease particularly affecting the elderly. Zeaxanthin is an efficient antioxidant, and thus contributes to the prevention of light-exposed tissue, skin and eyes, from photo damage.
