More Studies Focusing on Effects of Glucosamine on UV-Damaged Skin Cells


Portland, OR -- (SBWIRE) -- 02/19/2015 -- Glucosamine is a widely used natural supplement that is very popular among arthritis sufferers. It has been the subject of many studies that investigate natural solutions for a wide variety of conditions. In recent times, researchers have indicated that skin conditions may be another potential area where glucosamine may be effective.

In particular, studies are now focusing on the effects of glucosamine to UV-damaged skin cells. Though studies are continuing, this has already led many people who are suffering from related skin conditions to use the natural alternative.

The American Academy of Dermatology conducted a study that found glucosamine had the potential to help the body regain the health of skin cells. The results are encouraging for those who are suffering from the undesirable consequences of having UV-damaged skin. Experts suggest that glucosamine could potentially help in stopping the formation of new age spots and may aid in fading existing ones.

"There are quite a number of products such as lotions and creams for the skin that contain harsh chemicals. Some experts believe that glucosamine may be a safe and effective alternative to regain the skin's health and youthful glow," said VitaBreeze Supplements spokesperson, Michelle O'Sullivan.

Harvard Medical School's assistant professor of dermatology, Alexa Kimball, believes that the findings in several studies about glucosamine can potentially improve the way that dermatologists treat UV-related skin damage in the future. The promising results of such studies encourages further research to explore more of the benefits that glucosamine can offer.

Kimball also believes that the anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties of glucosamine can potentially improve overall skin health. According to the findings of a study conducted by Kimball, subjects that took glucosamine experienced significant improvements in the appearance and health of their skin.

"Glucosamine is already widely used among arthritis patients. Now, it seems that it is gaining popularity in the skincare industry," added O'Sullivan. "It is certainly an exciting time for those interested in natural health and beauty."

Glucosamine supplements are widely available nowadays, and can even be purchased online. Health experts recommend the use of glucosamine supplements that have other natural ingredients such as MSM, chondroitin and turmeric. They also suggest that consumers should take time in choosing a supplement that's right for them
