Dr. Oz Show Today: Oral Collagen, Lipowheat Supplement, PLE Sunscreen Pill

The Dr. Oz Show Today, 1/10/2014, showed new research on pills that can protect your skin from the sun and fight wrinkles for around $10 a month. Oz always says getting nutrients from the foods we eat is the best way but he realizes that supplements play an important role in filling in the gaps for some of us. Dr. Tess Mauricio comes out on the show and she has three new supplements that are cheap and will help you look younger.

Lipowheat Supplement
Lipowheat helps lessen dry itchy skin. Oz has said many times that scratching damages our skin and it can cause us to look older. this supplement actually draws moisture to your skin from the inside. Oz says we need 350mg per day and take it first thing in the morning. You will see wrinkles fade in as little as 2 weeks.

Oral Collagen
Collagen is important to keep skin elastic and smooth. As we age, we lose collagen and that is where we see wrinkles forming. Oz says taking oral collagen, 2,000mg each morning, will have your skin smooth and soft again in no time. This costs around $12 for a one month supply and you need to make sure you see Hydrolyzed Collagen on the label of ingredients.

PLE Sunscreen Pill
Polypodium Leucotomos Extract or PLE is being hailed as a game changer in the fight against skin damage from exposure to the sun. We have all been told to protect ourselves from the UV Radiation by applying topical sunscreen products. Those creams and lotions can be messy and they wash off when you get into the water.

PLE is a pill so it won’t wash off. Oz says that we should still use the extra protection found in topical sunscreens but this will add a layer of protection. You need 240mg of this per day and you need to take it about 20 minutes before going out in the sun. It only costs about $10 for a one month supply.

Oz states that research shows that people who use sunscreen regularly look about 25% younger than those who do not. This little pill lets you forget about when you need to reapply sunscreen and it protects you everywhere and not just at the beach or pool.

That is the second part of the show today. You can read about natural ways to fight wrinkles in our recap of the first half of the show.

    Hi Doctor Oz,
    I love your show, minus the commercials, but was wondering about the subject of Sleep for people who cannot have a regular schedule, such as hospital workers, factory workers, stockers, and especially Sleep Techs. I did try a day job and felt better for about 2 weeks, but went downhill from there. I got back into Sleep medicine doing night studies (which I love), but have a problem. Not only do I have to drive an hour and a half to work and back, I also work twelve hour shifts which make sense for the long drives. Unfortunately, I live in a small town, where I promised my dad I would stay with and live with mom after he passed away (as I’m the only child). Due to this and having daytime appointments, I usually end up during the day part of the week to also spend precious time with my mom whom still works 3 days a week when she feels like it, as she is still being treated for metastasized breast cancer. Besides noisemakers, blacked out windows, and a comfortable bed, I find my sleep schedule is all over the place and there is no chance fixing it. Also I have to be up in the day during the summer to mow the yard, and my noise machine and window A/C to keep me cool does not always block out the noises for a sound sleep.
    Any suggestions, maybe a whole show devoted to shift workers and how they can sleep better, regardless of the time of year and things needing to be done in the day?
    Just a suggestion of a good topic that I’ve never seen covered on your show.
    Thank you,
    Janice Bilbrey

    I am a Canadian viewer, and find that many of the holistic items you suggest are not available. Some are not even able to cross the boarder………..vitamins are dangerous you know. ;0
    I am in a major metro area but cant get PLE or b3 in the oil form. Can get the b3 in capsules…..have read on line that I could make my own oil by crushing the pills and dissolving them in oil.
    Is that correct?
    What type of oil?
    In what ratio?
    Appreciate your thoughts.
