Summer is here (yay!)...

...and you know what that means -- extended daylight for your outdoor runs and workouts, afternoons by the pool, ball games, family picnics...the list goes on and on.

Even with all the benefits, more outdoor activities mean more exposure to harmful ultraviolet rays and an increased risk of malignant melanoma.

But did you know the risk for malignant melanoma is even higher in runners and those who workout outdoors? It's not just the additional exposure to the sun's rays. Intense training can also suppress the immune system, leaving your skin more vulnerable to damage.

So, what do we do? Lather on the sunscreen and pop a couple of fish oil supplements daily?

So glad you asked because the answer is: YES! That's exactly what we do!

According to The American Journal of Clinical Nutrition fish oil supplements help protect against the suppression of the skin's immune system in response to sun overexposure.

In addition to contributing to brain development, cellular function, joint, and cardiovascular health, taking a high-quality, pharmaceutical grade fish oil supplement, like USANA's BiOmega, can help you strengthen your skin - from the inside out.
