I remember watching an episode of Dr. Oz while on the treadmill that was all about Phytoceramides. At the time of this episodes airing, the FDA had just approved this inexpensive oral supplement. Phytoceramides have been shown to reverse the signs of aging & Dr. Oz feels it is the way to fake a face-lift without the scalpel.
Previously, Phytoceramides had been on the market in the forms of topical skin care products & orally only offered in Indonesia & Japan.
Phyto means plant because these supplements are plant-based. Ceramides occur naturally in the skin; however, diminish over time with age. As a result, the skin barrier that retains moisture breaks down, allowing water to escape which leaves the skin dried, less plump and more susceptible to wrinkles and fine lines.
When ceramides are added back to the skin they will help restore the damaged skin barrier, keep moisture in, hydrate from inside out, which will help restore the skin back to its glowing state. According to the plastic surgeon on the Dr. Oz show, Phytoceramides need at minimum 4 weeks to start showing improvements in the skin. Phytoceramides need to get into your system, repair previous damage, and then rebuild.
The recommended daily dose is 350 mg per day, roughly 1 pill. As a user of Phytoceramides, you will get Vitamins A, C, D & E. Most Phytoceramides have gluten; however, ChronosPharma is a gluten free product.
I know that a large percentage of Day by Day Beauty Vitamin C Serum customers also take Phytoceramides. Again, research has shown that using topical Vitamin C Serum with an oral Phytoceramide supplement is a winning combination for renewed skin.
I recommend ChronosPharma as the Premium Phytoceramides on the market today.
Testimonial of ChronosPharma by Elaine Hissom:
I have always tried to be on top of the trends on all things beauty and must confess I was not a believer when I first came across Phytoceramides. Fast forward 6 weeks and I must say Phytoceramides are one of the best products I have tried in the last years. My skin no longer feels dried and patchy. I have kept my morning and night beauty routines and I think the Phytoceramides have complemented them perfectly.
