Life Extension offers an oral supplement to help protect against harmful solar radiation. During a decade of clinical trials, FernBlock® has shown remarkable effectiveness in shielding skin against dangerous ultraviolet exposure.58-63 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.64,65

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.

The highly targeted action of FernBlock® safely inhibits the absorption of harmful ultraviolet rays and quenches dangerous free radicals.58,60 FernBlock® also helps mitigate the consequences of excessive ultraviolet radiation by reducing the number of skin cells that indicate sun-induced injury.60,61 Additionally, it helps inhibit pro-inflammatory cells that cause redness and itching,66 blocks protein-destroying skin enzymes that decrease skin elasticity,67 and preserves the skin’s antioxidant status.68

This product has been upgraded to contain 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),69 which work together to support the body’s natural photoprotection against ultraviolet radiation.70,71  They do so by helping to balance the body’s normal inflammation response,72 free-radical defense mechanism,73 and healthy apoptotic (cell death) activity.73

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.71

FernBlock® is designed to complement topical sunscreens for intense sun exposure. Topical sunscreens are effective if properly and regularly applied, especially for long periods of sun exposure. FernBlock® supplements topical sunscreens by protecting the entire skin surface and has an obvious advantage since it cannot be removed by perspiring or bathing.

    Comments about Life Extension Enhanced Fernblock® with Red Orange Complex, 30 vegetarian capsules:

    My 14 year old granddaughter who is lily white went to Central America with me for 2 weeks. She took Fernblock each time before going out into the sun. She didn't get a sunburn even once. She was amazed because here in Florida she always gets sunburned.

          Comments about Life Extension Enhanced Fernblock® with Red Orange Complex, 30 vegetarian capsules:

          We are active outdoors folks (surfing, fishing, kayaks, hiking) who at times get a lot of sun exposure. The Fernblock product is an excellent product. Sunburn has become a thing of the past when we combine oral Fernblock product with a single application of good sunscreen (even with 4-6 hours sun exposure on the water). Love the product and hate it when we forget to take it before a fishing or surf session.

            Comments about Life Extension Enhanced Fernblock® with Red Orange Complex, 30 vegetarian capsules:

            I added to my daily supplements two weeks prior to all day sun exposure on tubing trip. Usually I would be a little pink, even after sunscreen use, but not with the Fernblock supplementation. I now have Fernblock as a must-have daily supplement.

              My husband & I are gardeners. We spend a lot of time outdoors. We also like outdoor activities like boating, etc. I love that Life Extension has something for
              everyone. I take one in the morning about a half hour before I go outdoors.
              I now have Peace of Mind knowing I'm doing what I can to protect myself. I am also confident I'm getting the highest quality ingredients money can buy. What a wonderful product. Thank you so much!

              Comments about Life Extension Enhanced Fernblock® with Red Orange Complex, 30 vegetarian capsules:

              I just retired and now live in Arizona. I played my first round of golf in over 15 years last week. I was dressed in some shorts, a polo shirt, and ball cap. I wore golf cleated sandals with no socks so the top of my feet were completely exposed to the sun. The temperature was around 95+ degrees.

              About 45 mins. before I left for the course, I took the Enhanced Fernblock to give me some added protection from the sun. When I got to the course, I reached for my sunblock but apparently it was removed from my bag.

              As such I spent over four hours on the golf course with only the Enhanced Fernblock to protect my skin from the Arizona sun.

              It was AMAZING! I did not get sunburned at all! Even the sensitive skin on the top of my feet (that is very seldon exposed to sunlight) did not burn!

              I told my golfing buddies about this and I am positive they will all become Life Extension members very soon in order to buy this product at member pricing.
