Skin Restoring Phytoceramides with Lipowheat
Ceramides play a central role in preserving healthy-looking skin. They are an important lipid component of the skin’s membrane, where they provide protection from the elements and lock in moisture. In fact, they make up 35%-40% of the binding matrix that maintains moisture balance and protects the skin’s surface. The problem is that the body’s production of ceramides declines with age.
The ceramides that young skin naturally produces to retain its supple appearance are identical to those present in wheat … which is why wheat-derived oils have been used topically for centuries as a natural moisturizer. But you can’t get enough ceramides from topically-applied wheat germ oil to have a long-term impact on your skin’s appearance. And they don’t appear in sufficient concentration in your diet.
So we’ve brought together these skin-nourishing oils in an oral formula with Lipowheat, a proprietary phytoceramide blend that offers nutritional support for aging skin, to complement topical products you may already use.
Phytoceramides have been available to Japanese women as a functional food since 2000. The hydrating action of Lipowheat phytoceramides has proven so effective in clinical trials, they’re now approved as a dietary ingredient by the FDA. For example, after three months of ingesting 200 mg a day of Lipowheat, a group of people suffering from dry, flaking skin reported dramatic improvement in the look and feel of their skin. These results were verified by electrochemical analysis showing that 95% of participants exhibited improved skin hydration. Better yet, all subjects who experienced chronic itching at the onset of the study reported sharply decreased itching or complete elimination of the problem by the end of the study!
Read the entire label and follow the directions carefully prior to use.

Wheat germ oil is highly comedogenic when used topically. For me, this supplement resulted in cystic acne, something I havent had since I was a teenager. Who knew that "skin restoring" meant "acne again". Had to stop taking it and now my skin is clear again.
BUT this is still worth the money. In one study, 95% of participants taking 200 mg of Lipowheat(R) a day reported dramatic improvement in the look and feel of their skin and exhibited improved skin hydration, with results verified by electrochemical analysis. Better yet, the study participants who experienced itching at the onset of the study reported sharp decreases or completely eliminated itching by the study’s end. // If you found this useful, click YES and visit my Profile.

I am now on 2nd bottle (also just ordered another 4) I like this product very much, very satisfied! I felt my skin has hydrated and moistured only in 1 week! NO negative effect. I have read this product's reviews, it was written that it would be more obvious in 3 months for just 200mg daily. But Life extension' s each cap contains 350mg. I am looking forward to seeing better improvement. So far, I m on 2nd bottle, I felt my skin is getting more hydrated and moisture. Hopefully, it wil help my under eye lines to pump up too(though I don't have much). I bought a bottle for my sister to try too cos her skin is very dry and got eczema, she told me she felt her upper arms smoother and hydrated in 2 weeks. I will update hers and mine maybe 2 montns later.

I personally feel that it improves the appearance of my skin; plumping the skin and fine lines. I take one daily and most people think I am much younger than I am.

Even with regular facials and drinking at least a litre of water daily, I started getting dry patches on my forehead, neck and hands. After taking this skin supplement and one for thyroid support (under a doctor's supervision), I find my skin looks more hydrated and radiant.

My skin is hydrated and feel that moisturiser cream sinks into skin well. I have not noticed amazing results as it requires 2-3 months to show dramatic results. So far it is good.

Noticed the skin under my eyes are so smooth... The deep facial lines on my face seem to have gone. Have ordered another 2 bottles. And I have stopped buying expensive anti Ageing creams which made my face very dry and scaly and wrinkled! Using only moisturizer from the pharmacy day and night...no toner.
