 Scientists from Italy and Spain have discovered that strawberry extract protects skin from UVA-rays, and soon we can expect on the shelves of sunscreen cream with strawberries.

Experiments scientists showed that strawberry extract added at day creams to protect the skin from harmful solar radiation, and reduces DNA damage.

Try different concentrations: 0, 05 mg, 0 25 mg, 0 5 mg per 1 ml cream. It was the most effective concentration of 5 mg per 1 ml. It is completely blocked all UVA-radiation within 90 minutes of being in the scorching sun.

The antioxidant effect of strawberry was known before. These berries contain anthocyanidins and anthocyanins, which are water-soluble flavonoids. 100 g of berries from 15 to 20 mg of anthocyanins and anthocyanidins.

Maybe we should not expect the invention of new cream with strawberries and begin themselves to enrich their daily means of berries?
