Phytoceramides with Lipowheat ® provide the skin with healthy nutrients with the benefits of wheat-derived ceramide oils designed to enhance dermal elasticity, hydration and appearance. Phytoceramides with Lipowheat ® is a formula that contributes to the youthful appearance of the skin, promotes healthy skin hydration and appearance. It enhances healthy levels of ceramide in aging skin regulating and correcting poor absorption.


Benefits of ceramide oils

Ceramides are lipids located between the cells of the superficial layers of the skin and have the ability to trap water inside the molecules. They contain 35%-40% of the binding matrix that maintains moisture balance and protects the surface of theskin. These oils nourish the skin and are an important component of the membrane of the lipids of the skin, providing protection and retaining moisture. Ceramide layers naturally decrease with age.

Using grain oils as natural moisturizing

Ceramides give the skin its youthful and supple appearance and are identical to those found in wheat. That is why the oils extracted from wheat have been topically used as natural moisturizes for centuries. However we cannot get enough of the ceramides from topically applied wheat germ oil so as to have a long-term impact on the appearance of the skin.


The good news is that Life Extension has managed to combine these skin nourishing oils in a composition that is highly concentrated with ceramides in its ® Lipowheat blend.



Lipowheat ® formula has been clinically researched. Ceramides have been proven to be so effective that they have already been approved as a dietary supplement by the FDA. The Japanese have had access to ceramides as functional food since 2007. Studies confirm improvements in hydration and appearance. In one study 95% of participants taking 200mg Lipowheat ® daily reported striking improvements in the look and feel of their skin and showed improved skin hydration and the results were with verified by electrochemical analysis.  Participants who at the beginning of the study suffered from itchiness reported a reduction or evenan elimination altogether at the end of the study.
