SLASH Your Skin Cancer Risk with THIS Vitamin!
By now you know that I believe spending time in the sun is one of the best things you can do for your health.
And by now, I’m used to getting questions about the dangers of direct sunlight and UV rays.
Yes, the sun can be damaging if you’re not protected.
But you don’t need sunscreen or layers of clothing to protect you.
Your body has built-in mechanisms designed to block out the bad while letting in the good.
It’s up to you to make sure those mechanisms are up to snuff.
In fact, one nutrient in particular is so powerful that it can help prevent numerous types of skin cancer.
Here’s how to make sure you’re getting enough.
Sunscreens are highly toxic chemicals loaded with harmful ingredients that make their way into your bloodstream.
Once there, they can disrupt your hormones and possibly lead to cancer.
I could write a book on the dangers of the stuff—but the marketing gurus spin the truth, making you fear the sun and slather on the REAL stuff you should be afraid of.
The truth is that your body has built-in mechanisms that allow you to get the benefits of sunlight without suffering from any harm.
A form of vitamin B3 called nicotinamide has been shown to protect skin cells from ultraviolet exposure.
In a recent study, researchers found that when they treated healthy skin cells with nicotinamide 24 hours before UV exposure, the skin cells were protected from DNA damage and cell death.
Previous studies have shown that nicotinamide can boost DNA repair in skin cells after they’ve been exposed to UV rays.
And in people with a history of skin cancer, nicotinamide has been found to reduce the number of new skin cancers.
In fact, the research on this is so strong that many dermatologists prescribe a nicotinamide supplement to people with a history of non-melanoma skin cancer to help prevent recurrence.
The catch is that your body doesn’t store nicotinamide, which means you need to ingest it regularly to make sure you’re getting enough.
You can get nicotinamide from food sources like leafy greens, meat, fish, legumes, dairy, and yeast.
And if you have a history of skin cancer, consider supplementing with 500 mg of nicotinamide per day.
