One of the major sources of skin aging is damage from the sun. Excessive UV radiation from sunlight causes the cells in the skin to release molecules called matrix metalloproteinases, which break down collagen as part of the healing process. When this happens consistently, the result is rapid skin aging. A scientific study showed that subjects treated with vitamin A had a reduced release of these molecules mainly attributed to the role that vitamin A plays in regulating DNA.
Vitamin C is classically known to be a necessary component of collagen production. Without vitamin C, a condition called scurvy happens. In milder forms of the deficiency, the result could be a skin with reduced elastic capacity, which forms wrinkles.
Vitamin D helps the cells at the very bottom layers of the skin to mature into fully functional skin cells. This helps to replace the worn out and damaged skin.
Vitamin E is an antioxidant which helps to reduce inflammation in the skin. Inflammation is often the cause of skin damage so this effect can reduce symptoms of aging.
Phytoceramides have been shown scientifically to increase levels of collagen in between the skin cells so that the skin becomes firmer. They also help to hydrate the skin and protect it from infection.
One capsule of BeMedFree Phytoceramides must be taken every day on a constant basis, as a dietary supplement. The manufacturer recommends taking the supplement with food and 8 oz of water.
The product is not available for purchase directly from the manufacturer – rather only from third-party retailers. We researched a number of third-party retailers, and all of them stated that the product is out of stock and a price is unavailable. It is definitely not a good sign when a product is unavailable because it shows that either the manufacturer is inconsistent or that demand for the product has decreased.
We could not find any evidence of a guarantee or returns policy for this product. This unfortunately only strengthens the idea that the product is ineffective and has a low demand. This is because by not offering a guarantee, the manufacturer is essentially admitting that they have no confidence in their product.
BeMedFree Phytoceramides Review – Conclusion
The ingredients included in this product are quite well considered and are at the relevant dosages in terms of what the scientific literature has found. Despite this, the product does not seem to be a very high quality because the manufacturer cannot guarantee its effectiveness and it’s just not available anywhere at the moment. Perhaps customers should look for a more trusted and popular phytoceramide supplement.
