Q: How is this product gluten free when it has wheat seed extract?
A: That is a great question! CERAMOSIDES™, which is made from wheat seed extract, is not something we create but a patented product we use in our formula. CERAMOSIDES™ are phytoceramides with clinically proven hydrating and anti-aging action. Here is an excerpt from the CERAMOSIDES™ website explaining how the product is guaranteed gluten free:
“HOW CAN CERAMOSIDES™ BE “GLUTEN-FREE” WHEN IT COMES FROM WHEAT?
Gluten is a complex mixture of proteins. Wheat contains lipids, proteins and other components. Our unique process concentrates the skin-friendly lipids while totally eliminating the proteins, making Ceramosides™ gluten-free.”
If you are concerned about whether or not this product is safe for you, please consult with your physician or healthcare professional. Please feel free to reach out to us if you have any additional questions or concerns!
Q: When will I see results?
A: In the clinical studies for Ceramosides®, improvements in skin health occurred in as little as 15 days, with beneficial effects increasing over the duration of the studies (which were of 60 day lengths). In the SynBalance® ProBeautyShield studies, benefits for those suffering from atopic dermatitis increased in the duration of the study. Results will vary, of course, based on your diet and environmental factors, and the timeline for how quickly you’ll see results also depends on what you are hoping to treat.
Q: Does this product need to be kept in the fridge?
A: These probiotics are shelf-stable, though refrigerating them may lengthen shelf life. Whether you refrigerate or not is up to you, though if you plan on taking them as a part of a daily regimen, keeping them where you’ll remember to take them might be advantageous.
Q: Can I take different versions of the probiotic capsules together? Like the beauty and the turmeric?
A: Since our bodies have billions of microorganisms living in our digestive tracts, and probiotics are made of the good bacteria our bodies need, it is generally considered safe to ingest more than one type of probiotic at a time. Some of our customers who take more than one probiotic choose to take one serving in the morning and one serving at night to separate the time of ingesting each serving. There are many different strains of probiotics that benefit the body differently, and it is important to choose which are the right formulas for you based on your needs.
We always recommend that everyone check with their physician or healthcare professional before beginning any new wellness supplement to make sure the supplement is suitable for their health. Your physician or healthcare professional can assist you in determining if the probiotic and dosage is suitable for you!
Q: What are the differences between the liquid probiotic and the capsule probiotics?
A: That is a great question! We have both liquid and capsule probiotics available for many reasons. Our Liquid Probiotic is a great option whether you are purchasing for just yourself, or the whole family! It is easy to dose out the proper amounts for any age with the liquid formula by using the dropper. Our capsule probiotics, however, are formulated in proper dosage amounts for adults.
There are also different formulas for our Liquid Probiotic and Probiotic capsules. As well, because the capsules have additional ingredients in them (such as Turmeric in our Probiotic Turmeric+ or Garcinia cambogia in our Probiotic Weight Management+), they must be encapsulated. These capsule products would not be shelf stable in liquid form with some of these additional ingredients.
Lastly, our regular Liquid Probiotic was created for general digestive health, while our probiotic capsules were created for targeted support, such as weight management, collagen production, skin health, or occasional digestive issues.
If you aren’t sure which probiotic is best for your needs, we recommend you check with your physician or healthcare professional to assist you in determining which probiotic and dosage is suitable for you!
