Next to the ‘text neck’ we’ve got the ‘screen face’ now!
Walking out into the sunlight and turning on your computer, phone or other digital devices, they all result in your eyes being exposed to a variety of visible (and sometimes invisible) light rays, all having a range of effects.
We all know that sunlight (white light) contains visible light rays and also invisible UV rays which can either turn into a tan or without any protection turn into a sunburn. But what many don’t know is that the visible light emitted by the sun, contains red, orange, yellow, green and blue light rays and many shades of each of these colours, that contain different amounts of energy.
Exposure to blue light, or high-energy visible (HEV) light, has an impact on our health. Natural exposure to blue light during the daylight hours boosts people’s energy, alertness and mood. However, elongated exposure to the waves transmitted through device screens on smartphones, computer monitors and e-readers during the evening, can disrupt your internal clock and cause various health effects like disrupting normal sleep schedules. It also seems to have an effect on your skin and makes us look older! So now, next to the ‘text neck’ we’ve got the ‘screen face’.
Sitting behind your computer screen, worshipping the sun and smoking, all have one common problem: HEV light, UV rays and cigarette smoke increase the body’s exposure to harmful free radicals. This can lead to premature cell and skin ageing which harms our health and complexion. Skin loosens prematurely, loses its elasticity and wrinkles become deeper. ‘CAPS sun’ is a food supplement with exceptionally effective free radical catchers which can help to counteract these lifestyle ‘sins’ and works like an ‘inside sun blind’.
Some of the active ingredients are:
- Carotenoids (organic pigments) from Haematococcus pluvialis, a freshwater algae species which has a blood-red colour caused by Astaxanthin, a pigment and known as ‘the king of the carotenoids’ which protects against UV-radiation and Lutein and Zeaxanthin, both yellow pigments from plants and micro-organisms, both work as blue-light filters.
- L-tyrosin, an amino acid necessary for the formation of Camphor, UV and HEV absorber, and Melanin, which reflects the HEV and UV lights.
- The anti-ageing and protective effects of red orange extract from Sicily.
- Bamboo-sprout extract which delivers silica for strengthening and restoring collective tissue, and has an anti-ageing effect.
CAPS sun is not a drug and should not replace doctor visits and they are not intended for the treating or curing of diseases. Suitable for diabetics. Not intended for children. Vegan.
