Polypodium Leucotomos Product: 000000000POLYL
Polypodium leucotomosis our newest supplement made in the U.S.A. Polypodium leucotomos extract comes from a tropical fern plant grown in Central and South America. Native Americans have used the plant extract for centuries for the treatment of inflammatory disorders and skin diseases. This antioxidant rich formula may help to prevent skin aging. It has anti-inflammatory and immune effects and is safe for daily use.
Polypodium leucotomos is particularly promising as a sunscreen in pill form. Studies so far have been small, but they suggest that Polypodium leucotomos can significantly reduce sunburn severity and that it may help prevent skin aging and decrease the risk of cancer from UV radiation.
Polypodium leucotomos extracts have been used for psoriasis in Europe and Central and South America for the last 30 years.
A study examined whether Polypodium leucotomos could reduce side effects of PUVA. PUVA is a treatment for moderate-to-severe psoriasis and consists of psoralen (a light-sensitizing medication) plus ultraviolet light A. This would potentially be helpful for people with lighter skin (skin types II and III), because the use of PUVA is currently limited by risks of skin damage and skin cancer.
Polypodium leucotomos has been found to inhibit immune factors called cytokines, particularly the cytokines associated with autoimmune diseases. In small amounts, cytokines are needed for proper healing. But if overproduced, they can cause inflammation and tissue damage.

Polypodium leucotomos extract comes from a tropical fern plant grown in Central and South America. Native Americans have used the plant extract for centuries for the treatment of inflammatory disorders and skin diseases. Recently, clinical research has shown that it has antioxidant and photoprotective properties and taken orally provides protection against the harmful effects of ultraviolet (UV) radiation from the sun and other sources.
How does PLE work?
The mechanism of action of PLE is fairly complex but has been summarized into the following main points:
PLE acts as a scavenger to mop up free radicals and reactive oxygen species (ROS), particularly superoxide anions (these high energy molecules cause direct cell damage and have long been associated with all types of cancer)
PLE inhibits the depletion of Langerhans cells
PLE reduces the number of sunburn cells
PLE protects DNA by inhibiting the formation of cyclobutane pyrimidine dimers (cancer-causing cells) induced by UVB radiation
PLE preserves skin tissue structure by inhibiting the infiltration of mast cells into skin (mast cells release chemicals in the body that cause inflammation, redness and itching)
What is PLE used for?
PLE is an addition to the armamentarium against the damaging effects of UV radiation exposure. It should be considered as another layer of protection and used in conjunction with a good sunscreen and protective clothing.
PLE is particularly suitable for people whom are photosensitive, especially those with polymorphous light eruption. Clinical trials have been performed in people with skin types II to IV and results show that PLE provides significant protection of skin against UV radiation.
PLE can also be used as a chemophotoprotector against PUVA-induced skin phototoxicity. Extensive PUVA treatment results in premature aging changes in the skin (i.e. increased dryness, freckling and wrinkling) and can increase the chance of skin cancer. Fair skinned individuals or those with previous sun or radiation damage are most at risk. In clinical trials, PLE has proven to be the first oral agent effective in reducing the harmful side effects of PUVA treatment.
PLE has been used as a naturopathic medicine during the last three decades for the alleviation of vitiligo, psoriasis, dermatitis and multiple sclerosis.
PLE has not been clinically tested in patients less than 18 years, and in pregnant or breastfeeding women. Hence there is no data to support its use in these groups.
Heliocare should not be taken during pregnancy.
PLE supplements have been used over the last 20 years in Europe without any side effects being reported.
