Herbal Nutrition Phytoceramides fell to the #2 spot when it didn’t quite make our cut as a top supplement. While this product does have some strong points, it realy failed in our eyes for containing a rice based extract, instead of wheat extract oil as its active ingredient. Its lack of real consumer reviews on the website also made us wonder if it even works.
Is Herbal Nutrition Phytoceramides Effective?
While this capsule does not contain the active ingredient, wheat extract oil, we believe it should be effective. However, we cannot find any proof on the website that this product actually works. There are very little reviews to tell us whether this company is worth buying from.
We found a high number of negative reviews for this product, interspersed with only a few positive reviews. Negative reviews are not necessarily a bad thing at all; we want to see a company that fixes problems and focuses on good customer service. Without this, we are left with a lot of questions and no answers.
The issue here is that Herbal Nutrition Phytoceramides is offering a product that does not contain wheat extract oil, which was recommended by clinical trials. This manufacturer has tweaked the proven formula and it is hard for us to know if this dosage will provide the same results.
Another strike against this product was the fact that it is offered only as a single bottle- one month’s worth. Sometimes, you can see results from a supplement in just 3 months and other times it can take nearly 6 months to reach and maintain the maximum anti-aging results. Most other companies offer multiple package deals for several month’s worth of bottles, which can maximize results and also lower the price per bottle by quite a bit. With Herbal Nutrition Phytoceramides, you’re usually stuck paying the one-bottle price. Does that mean this company expects people to buy only one bottle and never buy from them again? It’s hard to say because they certainly don’t share customer experiences, but that’s what it seems like from their website.
Bottom Line: We are not sure if Herbal Nutrition Phytoceramides is effective due to the fact that the product is not formulated using wheat extract oil, which was recommended in clinical studies. It is well known that skin care supplements can work differently for different people, due to each body’s unique makeup. We tried to find positive reviews and success stories on their website, but unfortunately we could not find enough information that leads us to believe that this product will definitely work.
Is Herbal Nutrition Phytoceramides Safe?
This product contains a rice based extract. It has no reported side effects and can be taken with most medications.
The only concern with this supplement is overdosing. Since this supplement is not the full recommended strength for Phytoceramides, some consumers think that they can get ahead faster and see better results by taking more than the recommended amount. It is important to keep in mind that taking more than the recommended dosage could potentially pose some health risks.
We believe this could be a good product, with a reformulation to include wheat extract oil and a higher strength capsule. But without verifiable consumer reviews on the website and a daily dosage that falls short of the recommended amount, we had to place this product in our #2 spot.
