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.
Glycogen Metabolism in the Skin
UV light irradiation induces an increase in glycogen content in the epidermis. Increased cellular glycogen content is one of the responses of epidermal cells to wounding and the glycogen is believed to provide the energy necessary to meet the demand of rapid growth often attributed to disturbed epidermal cells.
Glycogen is present in embryonic epithelial cells and appear again under conditions of inflammation or abnormal proliferation in epidermis, provoked by exposure to UV light, cuts or abrasions. Glycogen metabolism operates as an alternative energy source, enabling cell growth under conditions of metabolic stress.
