Benefits of Skin Restoring Ceramides
- Nutritional support for aging skin.
- Natural source of skin restoring ceramides.
- Moisturizing and nourishing properties.
- Supplements topical products you may already use.
If your skin looks healthy, thank ceramides. They are a vital lipid building block of the skin’s tissue, where they shield against the elements and lock in moisture.24-27 In fact, 35%-40% of the binding model that sustains moisture balance and defends the skin’s surface, consists of ceramides.28 The dilemma is that the body’s development of ceramides diminishes with age.29
The ceramides that young skin naturally produces to preserve its limber appearance match those present in wheat which is the reason that wheat-oils have been used topically for centuries as a natural moisturizer.
For this reason, Life Extension has combined these skin-healthy oils in an oral concoction with Ceratiq® wheat, an exclusive phytoceramide mix that provides nourishing support for aging skin, to supplement topical products you may already use.
