Advanced Nutrition Programme offers blue light protection


New from Advanced Nutrition Programme comes Skin Blue Filter, a supplement formulated to shield skin from the effects of blue light from the sun.

Designed to defend skin from within through a combination of cell-protecting nutrients, including targeted antioxidants, the supplement is suitable for all skin types and ages, particularly for those looking for anti-ageing benefits, people with light sensitivity or inflammatory skin conditions, and those experiencing high environmental exposure.

The formula includes antioxidant and anti-inflammatory olive fruit extract which protects skin and helps reduce discoloration, uneven pigmentation and redness caused by excessive sun exposure. The olive fruit extract has 99% bioavailability and is created by upcycling waste material from olive oil production, using up to 900 tonnes of waste per year.

Lutein and zeaxanthin – phytonutrients produced by plants from marigold flowers – are also included. Naturally found in the skin and eyes, supplementation of these has been shown to improve skin tone and increase luminosity and elasticity. The formula also boasts antioxidant vitamin E to provide cell protection and biotin to contribute to the maintenance of normal skin.

Skin Blue Filter is vegan-friendly, free from gluten, dairy, yeast, salt and soya, and encased in brilliant blue capsules, the colour of which is derived from spirulina extract.

Partnering with a specialized laboratory, Advanced Nutrition Programme’s researchers found that one pot of Skin Blue Filter not only repaired damage to skin from blue light but also protected skin from future blue exposure by 60%.
