This is a review of the supplement Phytoceramides, manufactured by the company Healthorium. This product is claimed to be a natural anti-aging skin supplement with added vitamins A, C, D and E. It purports to help reduce fine lines and wrinkles, to promote a smooth skin, to provide firmness and a vibrant appearance, while reducing redness and roughness.
One (1) capsule provides:
- Phytoceramides (350 mg)
- Vitamin A (5000 IU)
- Vitamin C (60 mg)
- Vitamin D (400 IU)
- Vitamin E (30 IU)
Other ingredients found in these capsules are vegetable cellulose, magnesium stearate, silicon dioxide, and MCC. Phytoceramides are comparable to lipids naturally found in the body known as ceramides, which keep the skin plump and hydrated. This element is simply a plant-derived equal of this natural lipid. Experts indicate that people lose ceramides as they age, which results in wrinkles and roughness of the skin. This formula is made with a vegetable based capsule, making it suitable for both vegans and vegetarians.
After thorough research we were unable to find the dosage required for Phytoceramides. The only indication is that one capsule should be taken daily, however, no indication is given of time of the day and of whether the capsule should be taken with or without food for optimal results.
Price: Despite a detailed search we were unable to locate a price for this product. It is stated that the product is out of stock. This could imply that this is not very effective or popular if third-party sites do not wish to stock it.
Regardless of our research efforts, we were unable to locate a manufacturer’s guarantee on this information. This is a concern: this could imply that the product is not as effective as the company claims it to be.
Phytoceramides Review – Conclusion
There are some good aspects to this product. It contains the optimal dosage of phytoceramides (350 mg) together with a mix of vitamin A, C, D and E for added value. Our research found that the reviews on this product are mostly positive, with a 90% indication that these reviews are truthful. However, there were only three reviews on Amazon. This may not give the full picture of this product. Reviews are normally a good reflection of how a product is experienced by the end users. We are also concerned that no key information on this product is supplied. The price, dosage instructions, and details on a possible manufacturer’s guarantee are not given. Without clear and succinct information, and a company that is transparent about its product, it becomes difficult for the consumer to make an informed decision before committing to a purchase. The consumer may be left in doubt as to how to take this product, and whether the product will lead to effective results.
