How to improve melanin? Which kind of diet and supplement can improve the melanin?

1 Doctor Answered
Melanocytes are cells contained in the basal or outer layer of the skin, called the epidermis. These cells create melanin, which pigments the skin. People with more melanin have darker skin tones. The more melanin you have, the more protection your skin has against the damaging effects of the sun. Sun-damaged skin increases your risk of skin cancer. Certain vitamins can help increase and maintain the number of melanocytes in the skin. Always talk to your doctor before changing your diet or taking dietary supplements, especially if you are pregnant or nursing. Take NutroActive Microfriuts Daily 1 tablet after breakfast.
