some people ask do tanning tablets work. You must know by now that the sun’s ultraviolet rays can wreak havoc on your skin and cause a range of issues such as lines, wrinkles, and cancer. Why tanning tablets have become a sensation around the world is because instead of using fake tan products and make the skin look orange, you can boost your melanin in your body to give you a natural nice glow.
Over the years, people have often relied on tedious and time-consuming ways to get a tan such as airbrushing, relying on tanning beds and tanning booths, as well as using tanning lotions. in this day and age, there is no need for any of that!
How do tanning tablets work?
When the sun hits our skin it causes it to turn brown, so next time you are in the sun you are more protected from getting sun burned. Our bodies do this by increasing melanin production. Tanning tablets gives our bodies have the correct nutrients to produce more melanin with safe a natural ingredients that our found in most foods.
How does our bodies create melanin?
There are 3 different types of melanin: neuromelanin, pheomelanin, and eumelanin. Confusing right? It all starts with the amino acid L-tyrosine, L-tyrosine is needed for our bodies to produce dopamine, noradrenalin and of course melanin.
Some people produce more melanin than others, depending on where our ancestors lived. Generally, the hotter it was the darker our skin would be to protect it from the sun. This does not include albinos who are unable to produce melanin.
L-tyrosine should always be in every tanning tablet as it plays the more important role. It is found in cheese, eggs and meats and fruits.
So what other ingredients can help with getting that glow?
It is important when buying Tanning tablets that they do not have ingredients that contain things that make our skin look orange. One that does not make our skin look natural and two, they can be dangerous. Ingredients such as beta carotene. high dosage of or even low dosage can have harmful effect on our bodies.
Some of the side effects of beta carotene include:
- Yellow looking skin
- joint pain
- unusual bleeding or bruising
That’s not covering everything, it is very important that you research the ingredients before consuming anything.
Besides L-tyrosine, there are a lot of other ingredients that can boost melanin production in a safe way.
A lot of time and research has gone into creating this product.
Gold Complex, here is what it contains:
- Lutein (Marigold Extract)
- PABA (Para-aminobenzoic acid)
- Coleus Forskohlii 20% (highest grade)
- Sesamin Extract
Why have we put these ingredients in Gold Complex?
Lets start with:
Lutein (Marigold Extract)
Foods rich in Lutein include broccoli, spinach, kale, corn, orange pepper, kiwi fruit, grapes, orange juice. It part of the group of Carotenoids and unlike beta carotene it is safe to consume. The reason it reached the Gold complex list is because of its role in increasing the densities of our skin pigment, seen in this study here: https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC2170892/
There are many other benefits of Lutein which include:
- Eye health (Eye strain, AMD and Cataracts

Next in the line up is:

- Beneficial for people with vitiligo

Coleus Forskohlii 20%
At this current date, there is no other tan accelerators like ours that contain Coleus Forskohlii. We believe its one of the most important ingredients in our tanning tablets. At 20% it is one of the highest quality grades out there.
It is A plant that grows in the Himalayas, it increases the levels of cAMP (cyclic AMP) due to its increase in cAMP. cAMP increases melanogenesis signaling pathways to promote tanning seen here: https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/19576939
Other benefits of Forskohlii include:
- May help weight loss

According to bodybuilding.com seen here https://www.bodybuilding.com/fun/beast21.htm, sesamin can reduce body fat in two ways, firstly by Increasing fat oxidation and secondly by Decreasing fat storage.
The last ingredient on the line up is:
It is a mineral that is found in hundreds of foods. Copper is essential for our bodies. It is also essential to produce melanin to give our bodies that nice looking glow.
Copper is a like vitamins, it is needed for our bodies to function and a lot of people are deficient in it so we will not include a benefit list here. It will of course benefit people a lot more if they are deficient in it.
The last but defiantly not the least in the line up is:
An amino acid, it is found in fish, rice, red meat, avocados, cheese, eggs, beans, nuts and seeds. It used in the body for a number of things and is a precursor to melanin, dopamine and epinephrine.
Why use them
Aside from the obvious results that they give, they are also more effective than most other tanning procedures like lotions and booths. The effects that you get from tanning tablets stay with you much longer and they do not require any effort.
Tanning tablets primarily contain colour additives that are similar to the beta-carotene compound, which is the element that gives carrots their orange colour. Once you swallow a tanning pill, the additive is deposited in the skin, just beneath the epidermis, which then turns your skin darker.
As shown above though, colour additives can be dangerous which is why Gold Complex does not contain them.
Aside from giving you that glow that you have always desired, tanning tablets also improve your ability to absorb more Vitamin D and they protect you from the debilitating effects of the sun. You should try tanning pills at least once because:
Tan Tablets are safe and natural
The risks attached to tanning pills are much lower than those attached to utilizing other tanning methods such as tanning beds. For instance, sometimes when operated by an inexperienced technician, tanning beds have been known to cause severe burns due to the high voltage.
They are easy to take
The best thing about tanning tablets is that you do not have to set aside time to take them. Usually, to get a tan, you would have to plan for it in advance and make an appointment before you can go to your favorite tanning salon. The effects of tanning tablets are observable as quickly as three days of taking the tablets. The pills can be taken at any point in the day but you should always take the prescribed dosage.
There is nothing as bad as experiencing streaks or spots after a tan due to the professional’s error. Tanning tablets can guarantee you an even skin tone that you can flaunt for days. The miraculous powers of tanning tablets start from within, equally distributing the darker pigment to the entire body so that you can enhance your features in the best way possible.
They are extremely affordable
Tanning pills have the capacity to deliver that glow that you have desired at the fraction of what it would cost you with other tanning methods. For instance, if you opt for tanning beds as your primary method, you have to go for a number of sessions if you want to maintain the glow. Tanning pills are a onetime investment and since the impact last longer, it makes more economic sense compared to the other costly techniques.
So do Tanning Tablets work? They do indeed.
Tanning Pills, tan beds, injections and sunbathing.
Well at least some can be safer.
Ever wondered why some people cannot tan and others tan, it seems, as soon as there sun touches the skin? It is all to do with the amount of Melanin our bodies produce, Melanin is produced by our body to protect our skin from the harmful rays. The darker your skin tone the less likely you are to burn, when the sun burns our skin it is carcinogenic and can cause skin cancer.
There is a number of ways you can get a tan.
- Tanning Injections
- Using fake tan products
- Tanning pills – accelerators
Sunbathing, feels good and makes us look good in the short term.
Everyone loves a good sun bath by the pool but we never get the chance all year round, a lot of us forget what the sun looks like with our office work and busy lives.
If you are one of them lucky ones then you should know that skin cancer is on the rise round the world but not only that, too much time in the sun can make our skin have more fine coarse wrinkles, freckles and elastosis which is sagging of the skin, where it loses its elasticity.
These are only a few side effects of too much sun to keep that bronze look.
What are tanning injections?
Illegal in the UK, Melanin injections are used to change the colour of the skin by stimulation melanin production.
An NHS statement “not undergone the stringent safety and effectiveness testing that all medicines have to undergo before they can be licensed for use”.
It is a synthetic hormone and its probably best no one goes near them as the side effects include vomiting, heart disease, DNA damage and that’s just a few of them listed. So defiantly best to stay away.
Salons, a quick and easy way to get that glow.
An easy way to get that glow all year round, no need to go on a holiday every month… that would be amazing. Although it is an ideal tan, it is exactly like sunbathing and like sunbathing, it can be damaging to the skin over a long time usage but your local tanning salon shouldn’t let you in everyday so it shouldn’t be too much of a problem.
A lot of tanning salons offer products containing PABA which is now FDA approved for UV protection. Gold Complex, among other ingredients, contains PABA at the maximum recommenced dosage to protect your skin while tanning.
Using fake products, cream or spraying etc…
Very quick fix but them poor bed sheets! They are great for people who have skin type 1, very white – people do not tan at all. There is a lot of products out there that just make the skin look orange, living up the the name of fake. Depending on what ingredients the product uses, it can also be damaging to your body.
Because your skin absorbs chemicals, vitamins and minerals into the blood stream, it can cause toxicity. There is still hope for skin type 1 people out there, herbs and supplements found in Gold Complex can boost melanin production.
Tanning pills, melanin boosters.
Does sounds crazy that a supplement can help you get that lovely glow. So how do they work? There is a number of ways they do. As stated above, people who are unable to tan have low melanin product. Take an albino for example, they have a fault in a gene that stops melanin production. Changing our production can sound a bit scary but all of the ingredients in Gold Complex have natural ingredients that our found in everyday foods and have been specially formulated to give us that lovely glow.
What are the side effects?
It all depends on the ingredients, there is some out there that use beta carotene which is dangerous for a number of reasons. First of all it gives you a fake appearance, it does not help your natural tan. Its just like what would happen if you ate a lot of carrots It makes your skin turn orange. The dangers, it has been shown in a number of studies to increase cancer by 35% in smokers, ex-smokers and people exposed to asbestos. There is no studies on people who have not have or done these but there is no reason not to believe that it can effect anybody. Also very toxic even at low dosages, its best to avoid it at all costs.
