Life Extension Skin Restoring Phytoceramides: 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.
The problem is that your body’s production of ceramides declines with age. That’s bad news, since ceramides make up 35-40% of the binding matrix that maintains moisture balance and protects the surface of your skin. The beneficial properties of ceramides are not just limited to skin cells. Ceramides are found throughout the body where they support healthy cell proliferation, function and development.
The ceramides that young skin naturally produces to retain its supple appearance are similar to those present in wheat! Wheat-derived oils have been used topically for centuries as a natural moisturizer. But you can’t get 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 one's diet.
Skin Restoring Ceramides offer nutritional support for ageing skin. Ceramides have been available to Japanese women as a functional food for a few years. The hydrating action of Lipowheat ceramides have proven highly effective in clinical trials. One study using a group of people suffering from dry, flaking skin reported dramatic improvement in the look and feel of skin. These results were verified by electrochemical analysis showing that 95% of participants exhibited improved skin hydration. Even better, all subjects who experienced chronic itching at the onset of the study reported sharply decreased itching or complete elimination of the problem by the study's conclusion!
