Natures Aid Hyaluronic Acid 50mg
The skin is the most important site of HA activity in our body, with approximately 50% of it is found in the skin, and contributes to proper viscosity of synovial fluid and vitreous gel of the eye Hyaluronic acid and collagen are vital to maintaining the skin’s layers and structure. It is the collagen that gives the skin its firmness but it is the HA that nourishes and hydrates the collagen. Hyaluronic Acid acts as a space-filler by binding to water and thus keeping the skin wrinkle-free.
Contributing to its amazing moisture ability, hyaluronic acid acts as a space-filler in dermal layers between skin cells and produces a long-lasting skin enhancement which makes skin soft, smooth and elastic, especially for the face and lips.
In conditions of premature ageing, such as Hutchinson-Gilford Progeria Syndrome (progeria), there is a 17-fold increase in hyaluronic acid excretion compared to age-matched controls.
- WOUND HEALING
HA is a regulator of the wound healing process and provides the needed structural nutrition to form a matrix of new tissue. It is a crucial component to skin tissue reconstruction following trauma. Chondroitin sulphate has been shown to raise HA production in the body, with large doses successfully rebuilding and healing cardiac tissue.
Hyaluronic Acid acts as a cushion for bones. With its high lubrication and cushioning effect, it resists compression and allows the joints to bear weight and withstand tension. In the meanwhile, it carries nutrients to the cartilage and removes waste materials from the joint capsule, thus keeping our joints healthy and strong. Hyaluronic acid preparations have been shown to decrease pain and increase function in patients with osteoarthritis of the knee. Mechanisms of therapeutic effect include restoration of more normal synovial fluid with improved viscoelasticity, effects on cartilage biosynthesis and degradation, anti-inflammatory effects, and direct analgesic effects.
- OSTEOPOROSIS and MENOPAUSAL HEALTH
Research has shown that oral use of HA has resulted in decreased content of pyridinoline (a marker of bone tissue loss) in urine, resulting in increased bone density.
Prior to menopause, oestrogen elevates HA levels maintaining healthy hair, skin and nails. Natural approaches to hormone regulation along with supplemental HA can help optimise natural beauty when oestrogen levels begin to decline.
