Glycogen Benefits in Skin

Glycogen is known to increase ceramide production by stimulating keratinocytes, and to improve skin moisture and skin barrier function. It also promotes production of hyaluronic acid, collagen and elastin in epidermal cells by activating cellular metabolism

It is said to provide significant protection from several damaging components of environmental pollution, while also providing significant protection against moisture loss and damage due to free radical activity and ultraviolet light.
