Skin - MSM reduced visible signs of skin aging

Good for more than joints and sports performance

Sports doctors have long used MSM, or methylsulfonylmethane, to boost athletic performance. In this two-phase study, MSM improved skin hydration and appearance.

In the first pilot-study phase, 20 participants took a placebo or 3 grams of MSM per day. Over 16 weeks, participants taking MSM self-reported significant reductions in facial wrinkles and skin roughness compared to placebo.

In the second phase, participants took either 1 gram or 3 grams of MSM per day for 16 weeks. In addition to participants’ reports, doctors used clinical skin grading and measurement instruments to test skin hydration, firmness, and elasticity. Both groups saw significant reductions in the severity of wrinkles, improved skin firmness, elasticity, and hydration. Those in the high-dose 3 gram MSM group had better skin elasticity and hydration than the low-dose group, but doctors said the 1 gram dose was “sufficiently effective in reducing the facial signs of aging.”
