Q. How do phytoceramides work for my skin?
A. Science proves that ceramides are an essential component of the skin. Each of the four layers of the epidermis contains a measure of the substance, not only to retain the skin’s moisture but also to help reduce infection. A reduced amount of ceramides leads to the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Since the body naturally loses ceramides as it ages, Phytoceramides work to replace the loss and stimulate the body to produce collagen and elastin for the skin. It also works to lock in the moisture so the skin would have a youthful glow. Ceramides also address the problem of skin pigmentation, so regular intake of plant-derived ceramides would help clarify the skin and rid it of age spots.
Q. How fast will I see the results?
A. The best part about taking plant-derived ceramides is that the results come as fast as 4-6 weeks after continuous intake. Now you can take decades off your skin appearance with just a 350mg Phytoceramide capsule a day in a month or so!
Q. Is it safe?
A. Yes. Unlike bovine-derived animal ceramides that carry with them the risk of viral infections, plant-derived ceramides are relatively safe and are FDA approved in the USA.
In fact, Japanese women have been using this substance for a many years prior to gaining FDA approval and no adverse effects from consumption have been reported to date.
BRI’s Phytoceramide is 100% organic and does not contain traces of soy, wheat, gluten, flour or dairy which are components identified to cause mild side effects on the body such as bloating, nausea, and constipation. These allergenic can also cause some serious allergic reactions such as rash and itching in some people.
BRI Nutrition is currently using gelatin capsules for their all-natural food supplements.Gelatin is very SAFE for most people in minimal amounts and is even safe when consumed in the larger amounts if used mainly as medicine.
Gelatin may have an unpleasant aftertaste, and can have some very mild adverse effects on the body such as bloating, belching, feeling of heaviness in the stomach, and heartburn for those who are highly sensitive to traces of gelatin in certain medications.
But, overall gelatin capsules are very safe for use in food supplements. BRI is switching to vegetable capsules in a month’s time, so customers who may have sensitivity to gelatin capsules can still enjoy the many benefits that Phytoceramide offers without the risk of running some allergies while taking the supplement.
Q. What is the recommended dosage of this supplement?
A. Phytoceramides should be taken once a day only. Excessive intake of the supplement does not mean faster results, it may actually cause harm to one’s health when taken in excessive amounts.
Q. How does it work?
A. As we become older, our body produces less ceramides. Ceramides are the fatty molecules or lipids that our body produces to keep us looking youthful. The decrease of ceramides in our system results to wrinkly, rough, and old-looking skin. Phytoceramides, in the other hand, are considered as the equivalent of our ceramides in plants. Intake of phytoceramides helps replenish the loss of ceramides in our body. Thus, this restores the youthful look and glow of our skin.
Q. Can anyone intake this dietary Phytoceramides?
A. The intake of Phytoceramides is not recommended for pregnant or nursing mothers, children under 18 years old, and people with known medical conditions. Consult your physician first before taking any supplements to make sure you are fit to do so. Also, do not exceed prescribed dose.
