Portland, OR -- (SBWIRE) -- 08/20/2014 -- Glucosamine is widely known by many as an effective pain relief option for arthritis, as it has the ability to strengthen cartilage. However, it has also been found to be beneficial for skin health.
Scientific trials showed that glucosamine has powerful healing properties that do not only benefit the joints but also the skin. It was found that it has the potential to significantly accelerate healing, decrease wrinkles, and improve hydration. Further studies even showed that glucosamine can be used for disorders of hyperpigmentation.
“Sufferers of arthritic conditions who also want to improve their skin health would surely benefit from using glucosamine supplements. Many believe that glucosamine has natural healing effects that can help heal wounds faster, reduce wrinkles, reduce hyperpigmentation, and moisturize the skin,” said VitaBreeze Supplements spokesperson, Michelle O’Sullivan.
Studies have been conducted to test the efficacy of glucosamine for skin health. According to Dr. Leslie Baumann, the author of “Cosmetic Dermatology: Principles and Practice”, reducing wrinkles is one of the benefits in using glucosamine. In a recent study, it also showed that women who took glucosamine supplements for five weeks experienced 34 percent reduction in visible blemishes. Individuals who suffer from hyperpigmentation have also benefited from using glucosamine. The skin condition is normally caused by sun damage and leads to skin darkening.
According to nutritionist and author of the book “100 Super Supplements for a Longer Life”, Frank Murray, taking glucosamine supplements orally can promote faster healing of wounds. Glucosamine supplements are extremely helpful especially to people who get wounded easily.
Health and beauty experts also believe that glucosamine is a great skin moisturizer. Glucosamine has amino sugars that are also found in the skin. Individuals who take glucosamine supplements can have lesser need for external moisturizer.
Studies sponsored by the American Academy of Dermatology reported that glucosamine has the potential ability to treat skin damaged by ultraviolet radiation. Glucosamine has the capacity to stimulate the production of hyaluronic acid, which can help rebuild skin tissue and joint cartilage.
There are quite a number of people using glucosamine supplements to improve their skin health. Glucosamine has become extremely popular not just among skin-conscious individuals, but also with beauty experts (www.amazon.com/Glucosamine-Sulfate-Chondroitin-Supplement-Turmeric/dp/B00DUMO9X4/)
