Phytoceramides Review – Conclusion
This anti-aging supplement seems promising, this as this product has some good points. Firstly, this product is not presented in a gelatin capsule, which makes it suitable for vegans and vegetarians. Secondly, this product has been discounted by the manufacturer by $10.00. This helps to make it more competitive in this market. That said, there are some concerns with this product. This as the key active ingredient phytoceramides quantity of 40 mg is much lower than other supplements of these kind that provide 350 mg of this element. This begs the question of this product could truly be effective with such a low dosage. More so, the return policy, although a consumer could possibly get their funds back, if they return the goods according to the terms of the policy back to the manufacturer, the consumer can’t try the product to gauge if they experience any adverse side effects or if the product is not effective for them. Lastly, the dosage instructions are a bit vague. The maker merely states take one daily. This information is not provided on the company’s website, even though it is critical information for the consumer to know what they need to commit to when buying a supplement like this to get optimal benefits.
