Vancouver, Wash. (PRWEB) July 30, 2012
New light is being shed on a compilation of research that has accumulated over a ten year time span regarding the benefits of MSM (methylsulfonylmethane). MSM has traditionally been used to help reduce joint pain and inflammation; however sulfur — a long-time friend of the dermatology industry — is a key component in MSM. Research suggests that daily oral supplementation with MSM may aid in minimizing the visible effects of aging on the skin.
The research touts sulfur with supporting the structural integrity of the skin by reducing the effects of the stress induced by ultra violet rays. Only recently did Bergstrom Nutrition, the makers of OptiMSM®, issue an interpretation about the benefits of MSM in the anti-aging process (OptiMSM is the world’s only GRAS-designated proprietary and patented MSM — meaning it is the only MSM product that is created in such a safe manner that it can be added to food and beverage products).
“The most visible effect of aging occurs when there is a decline in healthy collagen which gives the skin its strength. This creates a hardening in the skin, otherwise known as wrinkles,” said Tim Hammond, Director of Sales and Strategic Relations at Bergstrom Nutrition. “Sulfur helps preserve the pliancy of our skin by maintaining healthy collagen levels. With MSM being 34 percent sulfur by weight, it only makes sense that supplementing with MSM strengthens the skin.”
For those who are not already taking a joint health supplement containing MSM, OptiMSM can be found in the following products: Schiff® Hair, Skin & Nails, Solgar® Skin, Nails & Hair Advanced MSM Formula and more.
“Many people already taking MSM for joint pain and inflammation may not realize they are gaining anti-aging benefits,” said Hammond. “And for those who are currently taking a supplement for joint health that does not include MSM, a simple switch to a product utilizing OptiMSM could provide multiple benefits.”
