Ceramides or phytoceramides are plant-based fat cells otherwise naturally found in the epidermis layer of your skin and are important for skin health. Vitamin A is promotes correct function and development of your eyes, skin and immune system. Vitamin C is benefits the immune function. Vitamin D regulates minerals, calcium, and phosphorus and is crucial for bone health. Vitamin E is an essential antioxidant promoting optimal body functions and slows down cell damage. Inactive ingredients include vegetable cellulose, magnesium stearate, stearic acid, purified water, and silicon dioxide. These constitute fillers and binders. The supplement only contains 40mg of phytoceramides, way below the recommended dose of 350mg that other brands have. A key ingredient lacking here is wheat extract oil which can be very effective at fighting wrinkles and reversing the signs of aging.

LiveTru Nutrition Phytoceramides Review – The Bottom Line
In concluding our review of LiveTru Nutrition Phytoceramides, there are a few positive aspects to this supplement. It contains a combination of skin friendly vitamins and phytoceramides that are known to provide benefits to skin health. There is a 14 day guarantee and return policy. There is a discount for first time customers who sign up to the company newsletter. Right now down the not so positive part. In terms of dosage, the product label does not specify if there is a preferred time of day that you should take this capsule, or if you should take it with or without meals. The supplement only contains 40mg of phytoceramides, way below the recommended dose of 350mg that other brands have. A key ingredient lacking in this supplement is wheat extract oil which can be very effective at fighting wrinkles and reversing the signs of aging. The capsules are potentially not suitable for many people due to the allergen warning on the label (soy, wheat, eggs, peanuts, etc). The guarantee is very short at only 14 days and does not allow you to return opened bottles of capsules and requires you to pay return shipping. There is no bulk buying discount, shipping is an extra cost, and the product itself is very expensive at $39.99 for a one month supply of capsules. There are no customer reviews available on their website. In weighing all these aspects, we feel unable to recommend this supplement.
