Each and every capsule of Heliocare contains our proprietary Polypodium leucotomos extract (PLE), which we call Fernblock®.
But what is “PLE”?
Native to Central and South America, the Polypodium leucotomos fern naturally developed its own protections against harmful free radicals in the environment. For centuries, indigenous peoples have used this fern’s antioxidant properties to treat skin-related conditions and promote skin resilience.
Botanical products can vary extensively. To achieve maximum benefit, every step of the process from growth to extraction is vital. Everything from the soil, to the part of the plant used, and how it’s manufactured can contribute to how well a product works. Not all PLE products have such rigorous standards and this can affect how they work. Heliocare’s Fernblock® technology was both developed and studied extensively by leading dermatologists. With over 75 publications and clinical studies covering safety, efficacy, and consistency, Heliocare is proud to be the market leader and the most heavily studied PLE supplement available. See our Scientific Publications page for more information and a deeper look into the science behind Heliocare.
