Research Investigates the Moisturizing Effects of Glucosamine


Portland, OR -- (SBWIRE) -- 01/15/2015 -- People are always searching for ways to look good and have healthy, young-looking skin. There are many skincare products available today, but consumers are turning to another natural ingredient known as glucosamine that is believed to be beneficial for the skin.

According to research, glucosamine has moisturizing effects that can be extremely beneficial to skin health. Paula Begoun, author of "The Complete Beauty Bible: The Ultimate Guide to Smart Beauty", states that glucosamine is a very good moisturizer as it has high levels of the long chains of amino sugars known as mucopolysaccharides. These amino sugars are usually found in the tissues in the body.

"One of the natural components of the composition of the skin is glucosamine. Those who consume glucosamine supplements may have a lesser need to use external moisturizers such as lotions," said VitaBreeze Supplements spokesperson, Michelle O'Sullivan. "It is also interesting to note that glucosamine supplements work internally and this means its effect can be more efficient and dramatic."

Some scientific studies suggest that glucosamine is very effective in increasing the hyaluronic acid levels in the body. Hyaluronic acid is a protein that promotes elasticity and hydration in the skin. It is also used by many skincare companies in anti-aging lotions and creams as a natural solution for skin health. Glucosamine is in itself a moisturizer and it can also increase the production of hyaluronic acid, which is a skin health enhancer.

Some experts and renowned dermatologists are extremely impressed by the moisturizing effects of glucosamine. The natural ingredient has continually been the subject of many studies evaluating natural remedies used to improve skin health and prevent skin-related conditions.

Glucosamine is a widely known ingredient consumed by arthritis sufferers. As a matter of fact, people in the United States are spending thousands of dollars every year just to take advantage of the therapeutic benefits of the ingredient.

Many health professionals suggest that those who have dry skin or want to hydrate their skin while taking care of their overall health should take glucosamine supplements. There are exceptional glucosamine supplements available nowadays, with several that contain other ingredients such as chondroitin, MSM, and turmeric for improved joint and skin health (
