OptiMSM® may reduce fine lines and wrinkles, improve skin texture and elasticity, and provide overall support to the structural integrity of the skin. MSM benefits may also help the skin, hair and nails regain and retain a more youthful appearance.
For many people, looking good” is part of feeling good. Healthy radiant skin is a sign of vibrant good health, and is often at the top of the wish list for people who want to look their best. MSM (methylsulfonylmethane) is a rich source of sulfur — 34% by weight. Sulfur is a key component of collagen that supports the skin’s structural framework. It is also a building block of keratin, the main structural constituent of hair and nails.
MSM maintains disulfide bonds that keep collagen strands strong to preserve the pliancy of connective tissue.
By maintaining healthy collagen, cross-linking or “hardening” of the tissue is inhibited allowing for healthy dermal functioning.
MSM benefits the structural framework of skin tissue and is a building block for keratin and glycosaminoglycans.
Bergstrom Nutrition employs today’s most cutting-edge technology to research how OptiMSM® works to support healthy, younger skin. Our findings were observed in a Gene Regulation study.
Aging, poor lifestyle habits, environmental UV rays, and toxins are common stressors that can aggravate the skin and lead to skin aging. MSM can inhibit the breakdown of dermal collagen and elastin structure leading to wrinkle formation and fragile skin.
MSM stimulates the expression of specific genes, known as COL7A1 & FMOD. COL7A1 is responsible for the maintenance of healthy skin connectivity, while FMOD is responsible for the maintenance of healthy collagen and firmer skin.
MSM regulates the expression of both DSG3 & AQP3. DSG3 is responsible for the maintenance of the skin barrier to make cells more permeable and improve the absorption of nutrients. AQP3 is responsible for the regulation and distribution of water through the epidermis.
In a human clinical study, subjects taking OptiMSM® experienced visible changes in the reduction of wrinkles and crow’s feet, along with improvement of elasticity and tone.
