Drinkable Sunscreen Claims To Combat UV Rays

A U.S. company claims to have created a drinkable sunscreen that can combat the harmful effects of the sun by isolating frequencies needed to neutralize UVA and UVB rays.

As summer nears, news of an ingestible sunscreen has gained the web’s attention. UV Neutralizer works on the same principle as the larger Harmonized Water collection it belongs to: that different parts of the body operate on unique frequencies and need to be “neutralized” to correct imbalances.

The claims have not been evaluated by the Food and Drug Administration in the U.S.

UV Neutralizer claims to neutralize UV radiation, allow for increased sun exposure and enhance tanning effects.

Users are instructed to take 2 ml of the elixir -- which is described as a combination of different waters that carry different vibrational frequencies -- every four hours while out in the sun.

The range of Harmonized Water products includes waters for everything from digestive health, hangovers and fatigue to hair loss and muscle soreness.

It’s not the first product to manipulate the properties of basic H2O to be promoted as a well-being elixir.

Water that’s been ionized neutralizes acidity to make it more alkaline. Proponents claim that alkaline water carries anti-aging effects and health benefits and helps to restore balance in the average body which is generally overly acidic from factors like stress, sugar and poor diets.

Many scientists agree, however, that the body already has effective mechanisms in place to regulate pH levels and have spoken out against such claims.

A 100 ml bottle of UV Neutralizer retails for $30.
