The amazing benefits of hyaluronic acid

Hyaluronic acid – HA – is a water holding molecule that works as a “space filler” and cushioning agent in the body. HA cushions the joints and nerves, hydrates the skin and hair, and also fills the eye. HA is found in virtually every part of the body and is best known for its beauty-improving skin hydration and stimulating production of collagen in the skin. In fact, HA helps to retain over a 1000 times its weight in water within the cells of skin. But HA is so much more than a simple beauty panacea as it also works hard as an antioxidant and free radical scavenger with antibacterial and anti-inflammatory properties. Did you know that HA fights gum disease and helps the gums regenerate healthy connective tissue in the gums? HA is also critical for the removal of waste matter from cells where there is little blood circulation. Hyaluronic acid promotes faster wound healing, increased energy, improved muscular strength and enhanced mental alertness. HA production naturally declines with age and by the time we reach our mid-40’s, the synthesis of HA is roughly half that required by the body.
