Glucosamine is used by the body to make something called hyaluronic acid. Hyaluronic acid forms part of the skin’s connective tissue. It attracts up to 1000 times its weight in water, keeping the skin hydrated. It is your body’s natural moisturizer.
It plays an important role in tissue repair and collagen synthesis.
Hyaluronic acid is a very large molecule, and cannot be directly absorbed by the body. One of the most effective ways of increasing its levels in the body is to supplement with one of its component parts, glucosamine.
Biotin has been shown to greatly improve the quality of both the hair and the nails.
