Much of the early research done on the benefits of phytoceramides was performed in Japan and unfortunately is not available here in the USA. The research below will give you a good foundation of knowledge as to what phytoceramides are and how they work.
Should I take PhyGLOW before, during or after a meal?
Whatever time fits best in your schedule and will lead to the most consistent usage is the BEST time for you! Of course, be sure to drink plenty of water during the day to allow the phytoceramides in PhyGLOW to work to their fullest.
Ceramides are natural components of human skin. There are six Ceramide species or structures commonly found in skin. These Ceramides are formed via a biosynthetic mechanism in the epidermis. The four layers of the epidermis contain Ceramides, and they play an important role by creating a barrier which reduces infection and helps to retain the skin’s moisture. Reduction in the amount of Ceramides in the epidermal layers results in dry skin, dermatitis, and is believed to be a major cause of wrinkles. Studies have shown that a proper amount of Ceramides in the internal epidermal layer is necessary to maintain healthy skin. Aging and the Environment Reduce Your Skin’s Ceramide Levels The result is decreased elasticity, increased susceptibility to infection, and increased water loss which can lead to aging conditions such as wrinkles and fine lines, as well as an overall dullness to the skin’s texture.
When you consume the plant derived Ceramides (phytoceramides) in PhyGLOW, they boost the level of Ceramides in your skin by supplementing the Ceramides your body manufactures with vegan friendly, GMO-free, gluten free ceramides derived from yams. In addition, we’ve added a healthy dose of skin supporting vitamins to PhyGLOW to further enhance its performance and help you get back the GLOW your skin has lost through the years. Since your skin is primarily made of water and ceramides (and phyto-ceramides) absorb water and “plump” we highly recommend that you increase your water intake in order to maximize the benefits of PhyGLOW. Add at least an extra 8oz glass of water each day.
Phytoceramides can be derived from a number of sources. Wheat and Rice are the most common because they are plentiful grains and therefore inexpensive raw materials. However, knowing that we wanted to produce an effective phytoceramide that was gluten free eliminated wheat as a raw material for us. When we examined rice as an alternative we were unimpressed by the overall nutritional benefits. After much research, we discovered that highly effective Phytoceramides could be extracted from yams and PhyGLOW was born! Benefits of Yams Yams are generally regarded as a superfood and are an excellent source of the B-complex group of vitamins. Yams provide adequate daily requirements of pyridoxine (vitamin B6), thiamin (vitamin B1), riboflavin, folic acid, pantothenic acid and niacin. These vitamins facilitate various metabolic functions in the body.
Yes! The Vitamin A, Vitamin D and Magnesium Stearate in PhyGLOW are all derived from vegetal sources.

Been taking this for the 10 yrs now and love it!
I have been taking these supplements for years. They have improved my skin!
Ceramides were recommended by my Dermatologist and I stumbled upon these by accident. I think they help as part of a multi step approach to skin care.
Been taking these for a long time. Easy to swallow.
