What Does Hyaluronic Acid Do For Your Skin?

When you talk about Hyaluronic Acid to someone not familiar with this ingredient the acid part conjures up all different types of thoughts and none that relate to beautiful skin! BUT, it's not an ingredient to be afraid of at all, in fact, Hyaluronic Acid is naturally present in our bodies. It is a carbohydrate that binds to water giving it a stiff viscous quality similar to jelly. This gel is one of the most heavily researched substances who's function in the body amongst other things is to help lubricate movable parts of the body, such as joints and muscles. Its consistency and tissue-friendliness allows it to be used in skincare products as an excellent moisturiser. Interestingly, there is roughly 50% of Hyaluronic Acid found in our skin and is something we require in order to maintain our skin's layers and structure. Hyaluronic Acid works with collagen to produce some pretty wonderful anti-aging skin benefits. These include:-
  • Improved skin tone
  • Plumping
  • Keeps our complexions youthful = wrinkle-free

A Hyaluronic Acid Serum in MISMO terms translates to Rejuvenating Serum. Moreover, MISMO uses only pharmaceutical grade Hyaluronic Acid (which is also plant-derived) and lots of it too. In fact, up to twenty times more than other products, which is why Rejuvenating Serum is so effective. In as little as four days of using this serum, you will see visible results which include plumping and improvement to skin texture. In addition to Hyaluronic Acid, MISMO has also added another powerful anti-aging ingredient to the formulation, a peptide known as Matrixyl Synthe 6. This also helps to keep skin wrinkle free while also encouraging the production of collagen and elastin.

Eleanor recently left this review for Rejuvenating Serum: "Rejuvinating Serum Gel is by far the best product I've tried. With using 2/day for yrs now. It goes such a long way And the pump style is great. I wouldn't consider any other product!!"

An interesting Hyaluronic Acid fact - Hyaluronic Acid is highly concentrated inside the eyeball. The fluid inside the eye called the vitreous humour is composed almost completely of Hyaluronic Acid. The gel acts as a shock absorber for the eye and also serves to transport nutrients into the eye. It is said that after the 5th decade of life, our eyes stop producing the much needed Hyaluronic Acid resulting in various eye problems such as poor vision, dry eyes and floaters.

THE BEAUTY, HEALING AND RESTORATIVE MINERAL

MSM is known to be highly effective in joint health, muscle recovery, sports nutrition, immune support, and healthy ageing. 

What is MSM?

MSM (Methyl Sulphonyl Methane or Dimethyl Sulfone) is an organic sulphur compound found in all living organisms. It is the purest and most bio-available form of sulphur, one of the essential minerals crucial to life and the regeneration of cells. MSM has traditionally been taken as a food supplement to increase joint health for flexibility and mobility, as well as for strong hair and nails, beautiful skin, and other health conditions from leaky gut syndrome to mild arthritis, osteoporosis, and psoriasis. 

Why do we need to supplement with MSM?

Natural MSM is largely destroyed when our food is processed and can be lost entirely when foods and ingredients are stored for a long period of time. MSM bonds with moisture, so any food which undergoes any sort of dehydration will lack its natural MSM.

For these reasons, and because MSM is so critical for almost every athletic function in active bodies, it is important to consistently supplement with a quality MSM nutritional supplement 

How does MSM work at the cellular level?

Collagen is the principal structural protein holding the skin together and is largely responsible for the skin’s mechanical properties.  Sulphur is integral to the production of collagen and elastin, and MSM is a source of organic Sulphur. 

Approximately half of the body's sulphur content is found in the skin, muscles, cartilage and bones.

How can MSM benefit your skin, hair and nails?

  • Protecting collagen against collagen degrading enzymes
  • Reducing fine lines and wrinkles by boosting collagen and elastin production
  • Boosting the natural production of Glutathione, one of the body's key anti-oxidants ... as an anti-oxidant, MSM will boost the immune system and reduce pigmentation and cellular damage
  • Acting as an anti-inflammatory agent by reducing the production of cytokines (compounds that cause inflammation)
  • Maintaining skin cell membrane flexibility and permeability, promoting an efficient exchange of nutrients and waste products to help keep skin clear
  • Helping to maintaining the body's pH balance

How can MSM help with joint health and support? 

MSM has powerful anti-inflammatory properties and can be used as a natural alternative to help reduce pain from mild arthritis and osteoarthritis related symptoms.

How does MISMO MSM help with exercise recovery?

Our muscles, skin, bones, organs, and connective tissue all rely on sulphur and without it our bodies can not function properly.  MSM is an important nutritional supplement for anyone living an active lifestyle, as it delivers the sulphur and methyl nutrients which are key to the structure of healthy cells in muscle and connective tissue.

MSM is valued by bodybuilders, strength, and power athletes because it supports healthy and flexible cell structures and can help reduce the inflammation of muscle tissue and can offset muscle soreness and joint pain caused by inflammation.

Where is MSM found and how is it manufactured?

MSM is found in the fluid and tissue of all living organisms. It is present in a variety of foods including raw vegetables, eggs, milk and fish, but is lost through cooking and food processing. One of the richest natural supplies is pine trees and cabbage.

Although MSM is abundant in nature, even the richest natural sources only provide MSM in the level of several parts per million. Commercial extraction of MSM from trees is not possible so a process is undertaken which parallels the natural oxidation that occurs in the marine atmosphere and produces MSM that is chemically identical to that found in nature.

How pure is MISMO MSM?

Every batch of our MSM is rigourously tested by an independent laboratory to ensure the highest quality, minimum 99.99% pure MSM.

    How much MISMO MSM should I be taking?

    An average dose is between 2 to 6 grams daily. Most people take a teaspoon (approx. 4 grams) daily. If more relief is needed, increase the dose slowly. Can be taken in water or juice after breakfast, although there are no rules as to when you should take MSM.

    A word of caution ... some people find if they take MSM late in the day, after 4 or 5pm, they do not sleep as well, as it energises them. This is not a general occurrence but worth mentioning.

    WARNINGS: If taking Warfarin or strong blood thinners, do not take MSM without your doctor's approval. Not to be taken by children without a health professional's advice.  MSM can also interfere with the accuracy of the blood test for liver enzymes by sometimes producing false positive results. It is recommended you cease taking MSM at least 4 days before these blood tests. You can resume after the test.
