Mighty Night contains ceramides, a gluten-free compound derived from wheat that helps protect the skin from dryness, loss of elasticity and roughness. Our skin is protected by a lipid barrier, and ceramides are the backbone of this lipid structure, making them an important part of skin health.
This formula also includes ferulic acid and Ubiquinol, the most-absorbable form of CoQ10. Together, these ingredients help scavenge free radicals that can cause early signs of aging.
Ceramides have been shown to help decrease dryness, improve elasticity and improve skin texture (decreasing roughness). A placebo-controlled clinical study evaluated whether oral supplementation with ceramides could improve skin health. 60 volunteers presenting with dry and wrinkled skin were supplemented during 60 days with either a placebo or a wheat polar lipids extract in oil or powder form of 70mg or 30mg of ceramides. Skin parameters were evaluated at baseline and after 15, 30, and 60 days of supplementation.
Valerian root, passion flower and hops showed significant improvements in total sleep time, sleep latency, number of nightly awakenings and insomnia severity index scores. In a double-blind, randomized, controlled study of 91 patients with a sleep time of <6 hours per night were given standardized extracts of valerian, passion flower and hops vs a placebo at bedtime for two weeks.
