Life Extension Skin Restoring Ceramides hydrate and smooth the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles¹. The ceramides naturally present in our skin give it that young, supple appearance¹. Wheat contains these same ceramides, but you can't get enough from wheat in your diet to make a difference. Skin Restoring Ceramides is a convenient oral supplement that smooths the appearance of wrinkles, hydrating and revitalizing your skin from within.¹
Benefits at a Glance:
- Smooths the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles
- Promotes healthy skin hydration and comfort
- Encourages healthy ceramide levels in aging skin
- Delivers 350 mg of gluten-free ceramides per serving
- Contains concentrated, clinically studied wheat ceramides
Ceramides play an important part in your skin's role as a protective barrier, helping to bind together the cells that make up the surface of your skin. These nourishing oils help retain moisture and protect your skin. But ceramide levels naturally decrease as we age making it hard to maintain smooth, supple, healthy skin as we age.
- In a double-blind, placebo-controlled trial, healthy women took 350 mg of ceramide extract once a day for 12 weeks. At the end of the study, these women experienced a smoothing of wrinkles, improved skin hydration and objectively smoother, healthier-looking skin. And many subjects reported healthy-looking skin eight weeks after the study's end, demonstrating a lasting benefit from ceramide supplementation.²
- In a different double-blind, placebo-controlled clinical trial, 50 healthy women took 350 mg of ceramide oil every day for 3 months. They showed measurable improvements in skin hydration on their arms and legs, and reported smoother, suppler, and healthier-looking skin. In another study, clinical evaluation found marked improvements in skin scaling and roughness, and a dramatic reduction in itching in the ceramide group compared to placebo. Electrochemical analysis revealed significantly improved hydration in the ceramide group as well.³
