Glucosamine a Potential Alternative for UV-Damaged Skin Cells


Portland, OR -- (SBWIRE) -- 01/02/2015 -- There are many therapeutic benefits believed to be offered by glucosamine, including pain relief for arthritis sufferers. While it is a popular form of management for arthritis, many people are now starting to use glucosamine to improve the condition of their skin.

According to the American Academy of Dermatology, a recent study found that glucosamine has the potential to treat damaged skin cells. Individuals with UV-damaged skin may be able to take advantage of glucosamine, as it is believed to have the capacity to inhibit the formation of new age spots as well as fade existing ones.

"Many people are excited about the potential benefits offered by glucosamine on the skin. Creams and lotions nowadays normally contain harsh chemicals and substances," said VitaBreeze Supplements spokesperson, Michelle O'Sullivan. "With glucosamine, many individuals feel that they can have a great chance in naturally regaining the health and youthful appearance of their skin."

According to Alexa Kimball, Harvard Medical School's assistant professor of dermatology, the findings of the study could potentially improve how dermatologists treat UV-related skin damage in the future. Several studies have now provided promising results for the use of glucosamine on the skin.

Kimball also added that the antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties of glucosamine offer many health benefits. However, little is known about how the natural alternative can potentially improve skin health. In the studies conducted by Kimball, results showed that subjects who took glucosamine experienced notable improvements in their skin health.

Arthritis sufferers are normally the ones who use glucosamine. They believe that it is a safe and effective alternative to drugs in providing joint pain relief. Some even believe that glucosamine can significantly help them regain their joint health.

Albeit studies about glucosamine and its effects on the skin are still increasing, there are those who are already relying on the natural alternative in their attempts to improve skin health. Many of them have noticed gradual improvements in their skin
