By now you have probably become more knowledgeable about Apple Cider Vinegar, Turmeric, Berberine, Green Tea and Milk Thistle and all of their incredible benefits and health promoting properties. But you're probably less familiar this with this potent plant that is a dynamic ingredient for skin health and anti-aging
Polypodium Leucotomos is one of the most exclusive and secret ingredients that nature has to offer. It is a potent tropical fern plant native to Central America and parts of South America. It is dense with healing properties and anti-inflammatory benefits and elite ingredient for skin health and anti-aging.
How Does it Work?
Polypodium Leucotomos (PLE) works within your body to actively defend against free radicals and damaging toxins that attack your cells.
PLE preserves skin tissue structure by reducing the effect of damaging chemicals in your body that cause inflammation and redness in your skin. 
What Makes it so Potent?
Polypodium Leucotomos contains a high percentage of caffeic and feurilic acid which are powerful antioxidants that work to reverse adverse effects of sun damage.
Fern extracts such as Polypodium Leucotomos are also notorious for exhibiting powerful anti-inflammatory effects that can help reduce swelling and minimize the physical effects of damaged skin.
How Does it Promote Anti-Aging?
Researchers have investigated the effect of the fern extract on the skin. Scientists specifically studied the enzymes production of elastin and collagen, responsible for keeping the skin supple and firm.
The study measured how effectively Polypodium Leucotomos fights against free radicals that break down collagen and that are stimulated by exposure to sunlight.
The study found that Polypodium Leucotomos may play a role in preventing skin aging by directly defending against collagen depletion. It also demonstrated its protective effects by stimulating certain types of collagen that can help your skins elasticity and firmness. 
What is the Best Way to take it?
