MSM Organic Sulfur to Maximize Skin Care

Studies suggest that MSM Organic Sulfur may play a vital role in maximizing skin care by providing support for the the structural integrity of skin and by helping to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Our skin is a living organ that's put under considerable stress as a result of our diet, lifestyle, environment, and even just plain old aging. You will notice that as we age, there is a breakdown in the connective tissue of our skin leading to thin and fragile skin. This connective tissue is primarily made up of collagen. 

MSM Organic Sulfur is a rich source of sulfur—a key component of both collagen and keratin. Collagen is the foundation of our skin, making up 70% of its dry weight. Likewise, keratin is a vital component of both hair and nails.  Without proper supplementation, advanced aging may occur. 

Although traditionally we tend to treat skin from the outside with topical creams or lotions, there has been emerging evidence to suggest that supplementing with MSM powder can improve skin quality. A 2015 study, published in Natural Medicine Journal, tracked women who were randomized to receive supplementation. After 16 weeks of supplementation, results demonstrated that users showed statistically significant improvements in crow's feet, skin firmness, tone, and texture as graded by a group of expert. Photo instrumentation analysis also found significant improvements for the total wrinkle count and severity as well as length, severity, and deep line counts. Furthermore, users appeared to provide themselves a more favorable self-assessment than non-user at follow-up. 

Our MSM Organic Sulfur Skin Benefits May Include: 

  • Reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles
  • Even skin tone
  • Strengthen the skin’s protective barrier
  • Support the structural integrity of skin
  • Improve skin’s firmness and elasticity

How MSM Supplementation Can Improve Your Skin:

  • Keep collagen strong via disulfide bonds that help form collagen
  • With healthy collagen production, hardening of the skin tissue (and potential breakdown) is prevented
  • It is a building block for keratin and glycosaminoglycans
  • Stimulates COL7A1 and FMOD genes. Both of these are important in the maintenance of skin quality.
  • Regulates the expression of DSG3 and AQP3 genes which are important for healthy nutrition and hydration of our skin. 

Since MSM Organic Sulfur is high in sulfur content, it helps to maintain strong collagen bonds increasing our skin's elasticity (ability to deform and retake shape) via enhanced connective tissue strength. Furthermore, our product is crucial for the development of the antioxidant Glutathione, and has been shown to increase Glutathione levels. Glutathione helps to bond free radicals that may be present after exposure to ultraviolet rays (the sun).
