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.24-27 In fact, they make up 35%-40% of the binding matrix that maintains moisture balance and protects the skin’s surface.28 The problem is that the body’s production of ceramides declines with age.29
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 ceramide blend that offers nutritional support for aging skin, to complement topical products you may already use.
Ceramides have been available to Japanese women as a functional food since 2000.30 The hydrating action of Lipowheat® ceramides 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 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 itching at the onset of the study reported sharply decreased itching or complete elimination of the problem by the end of the study!31

I live in the desert & our climate is very drying & brtual on your complexion. I decided to give this porduct a try. After 1 mo I started noticing a difference in the moisture level. After 2 months I can see a major difference in my moiture level skin texture & fine lines & wrinkles & sensitivity. I no longer need as much moisturizer on my face & body. This is an amazing product! I am starting to look younger too.I LOVE IT!!

Didn't work for me.
I believe you need to give a nutritional product three months to see if it works. I didn't notice any change after taking this product for that long.

Comments about Life Extension Skin Restoring Phytoceramides with Lipowheat®, 30 vegetarian liquid capsules:
I have been using this product for several months. After the first month I could notice a marked difference in my skin. The dry skin around my nose, corners of my mouth , around the edge of my upper lip and hands completely went away. This stuff really works. I will definitely continue using it.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Am Purchasing Again
By Susan M.
from Santa Rosa, CA
I ceased using this product in an effort to economize. A couple of months passed and I noticed a change in my facial skin. It didn't look as good or as supple as previously.I reordered the product and have been taking a pill daily. My skin has improved once again.I am unable to say with certainty the product works, the changes could be due to other factors; however, the changes coincided with use and no use of product. From now on, I'm on board. :)
Save $$$ on Skin Moisturizers!
By Very Satisfied!
from Vista California
I am 75 years old and have had dry scaly skin since age 55. I used a moisturizer daily for years to combat this problem. After taking the phytoceramides for 3 months my skin, (particularly on my face), has become softer and smoother. I am no longer shedding and have no need for any moisturizers. How simple and satisfying. It is now my partner for life. And, it is the perfect product for self-conscious men who are using moisturizers on their faces. One pill a day. That's it. No more shine, no more scales.

Of little value..
By Dr. "T"
I personally found this formula to be useless after several months taking as directed.

About Me Skin Care Professional
As with anything you start taking, it does take time to see results. So I did in about a month started seeing changes and improvements in my face/skin. Though I also was having some break-outs, but with continued use; the break outs did stop. Overall I am very glad I am taking this product, and so would recommend it to others..but do be patient! There were no other side effects! Great product!
