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!

Within a few days my skin was noticeably better. This product really works, but it is on the expensive side. It also doesn't make sense intuitively that it works, but it does. Glycolic acid is the only product where I have seen similar results. I won't use this regularly, but will buy again at some point. I recommend, especially if you don't like glycolic acid.

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.

It took about ten days for me to see results, but this supplement is definitely doing something. The keratosis pilaris on my upper arms have completely vanished. My skin also seems much softer than usual. I am looking forward to the results after 6 weeks of daily use.

This actually does work, it takes about 2 weeks to notice the difference.

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.
