DetailsCeramides 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.
What's more, the beneficial properties of ceramides aren't limited to skin cells. They're found throughout the body, where they support healthy cell proliferation, function, and development across a range of physiological systems.
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 your diet.
That's why Life Extension has brought together these skin-nourishing oils in a new oral formula for skin health called Skin Restoring Ceramides with Lipowheat. Proprietary ceramides called Lipowheat offer nutritional support for aging skin, to complement the topical products you may already be using. How? As an oral supplement, the health-promoting ceramides in Skin Restoring Ceramides with Lipowheat are supplied to aging skin internally.
Ceramides have been available to Japanese women as a functional food since 2000. The hydrating action of Lipowheat ceramides have proven highly effective in clinical trials. To take one example, after just three months use 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. 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!
You can now offset the visible impact of the gradual decline in your ability to produce enough ceramides with Life Extension's Skin Restoring Ceramides with Lipowheat.
