Researchers studying the effects of nutritional supplements on skin health have further confirmation that OptiMSM® may reduce visible signs of skin aging. According to a recent study published in the February issue of the International Journal for Vitamin and Nutrition Research, authors used a two-phase approach to show how OptiMSM® reduced visible signs of skin aging.
63 participants ingested either 1 or 3 grams of OptiMSM® over 16 weeks. Results were judged using subject self-assessment of wrinkles and skin texture, expert clinical grading, and instrumental measurement and analysis.
The results indicated that oral ingestion of OptiMSM® helps in the reduction of signs of aging, like facial wrinkles and skin roughness, and also improves skin firmness, elasticity and hydration. With both doses (1 or 3 grams) showing efficacy, researchers pointed towards OptiMSM® effectiveness in reducing visual signs of skin aging, even at a low dose of 1 gram per day.

Furthermore, in a scientific study published end of last year, OptiMSM® also demonstrated beneficial effects on hair and nails health, possibly due to its action on keratin. Details of this study can be found here.
