An antioxidant formula can help your body protect the skin from sun rays from the inside out. UVA and UVB rays may cause visible damage that results in lines‚ thickening‚ enlarged or broken blood vessels‚ or dark spots. Ferndale Healthcare's HELIOCARE® provides nutritional support for your skin when sunscreen's effectiveness is negatively affected by factors such as your location‚ activities‚ or weather.
Polypodium leucotomos extract‚ which is derived from a fern native to South America. Traditional Honduran medicine has utilized this plant‚ which is also known as anapsos‚ to promote wellness--and we now know that its natural antioxidants are the reason why. HELIOCARE® is a convenient supplement that harnesses its benefits in capsule form.
HELIOCARE® can complement topical sunscreen by helping you keep your skin looking youthful. The antioxidants in polypodium leucotomos extract work to scavenge free radicals that can cause damage to skin cells. In addition‚ the Fernblock™ extract in every capsule provides important polyphenols‚ flavonoids‚ and monosacharides.
Take one capsule per day. If you're expecting prolonged sun exposure‚ take one capsule a half-hour before going out in the sun‚ and another capsule two to three hours later. At the recommended daily dosage‚ each 60-capsule bottle of HELIOCARE® by Ferndale Healthcare should last for about two months.

Actinic keratosis prevention.
I take two capsules of Heliocare by Ferndale Healthcare daily and the formation of new basal cell carcinomas seems to have slowed down. My dermatologist ordered me to take this supplement.
I am a free bleeder. New bruises show up on my skin on a daily basis. Since taking Heliocare, my bruising has subsided nearly completely. I honestly do not know if this happy event is due to taking Heliocare, but I am not willing to stop the antioxidant for fear of more bruising.
I have difficulty swallowing many capsules. When swallowing Heliocare, If I am careful, the orange capsules do not become stuck in my throat. I use a large gulp of liquid to wash down the capsule.
√ I would recommend this item to a friend.

Great inside & out!
Heliocare by Ferndale Healthcare is usually quite pricey. Glad I was able to find it at PureFormulas at such a reasonable price as I use this on a daily basis; double the dose when I know I'm going to be in the sun. I suffer from heavy malasma on my face because of the sun and it's been Heliocare that's kept it better under control; this was highly recommended by my doctor.
Everything!! No side effects.
Just that I have to order online for better pricing.
