Product Information Menu
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

It's as good as they get!
from Tucson, AZ
This is a supplement and must be taken daily. Skin changes may be seen within a week, or so, but it is best to be patient and give the product at least 4 weeks to effect changes. My experience, with any beauty/skin enhancer, has been that one must use a substance for at least a month, sometimes for 3 months. Be consistent; if you're going to try it, give your body time to make the changes, which may be different for different people.

For numerous years, I've had a small dry flaky skin patch on my arm which was always worst during the winter months. I've tried so many products that didn't work. After several months of taking one Lipowheat daily, my dry skin patch is almost gone! I'll continue to order this marvelous supplement.

from Houston, TX
After Iturned 50, my jawline was really starting to sag and I had no cheekbone definition anymore. After seeing information about this product, I tried it. It took about 2 months to notice a difference. Now after 5 months, my jawline sagging is 95% gone and I can see cheeckbone definition again. I love it.

Last year when I turned 40 I noticed my baby-soft skin turn markedly drier. My acupuncturist Althea Orr in Chicago recommended this product and it worked really fast really well. Am back to baby-soft skin.
