As an anti-aging treatment, Hyaluronic Acid is particularly useful in restoring the youthful appearance of the skin. It works by effectively moisturising skin from the inside-out and restoring Hyaluronan content within the epidermis of the skin. Hyaluronan is found in the extracellular matrix and helps to maintain the effectiveness of elastin and collagen, the two proteins responsible for skin elasticity. By adding a supplement of Hyaluronic Acid, the hydration of the skin is increased and any wrinkles within the skin are effectively pushed out from the inner layers of the skin.
In the joints and cartilage, Hyaluronic Acid is able to remain in large concentrations for a large period of time, around 3weeks. However, in the skin the Hyaluronic Acid is broken down or used within just 1-2days. This is why the addition of more Hyaluron to the skin can make such a huge difference to the elasticity and appearance of the skin.
Hyaluronic Acid is also depleted as we age. In fact, there is a natural decrease in the synthesis of Hyaluronic Acid. This causes a thinning and aging of the skin which increases wrinkling. The skin also loses some of its vital moisture as the levels of Hyaluronan deplete. By taking in a supplement of Hyaluronan, its supply to the skin is constant and allows maximal anti-aging effects and rehydration of the inner and outer skin surface.
Hyaluronic acid is present naturally in the synovial fluid within the joints, the knees, elbows, in cartilage and other forms of connective tissue. It acts as a lubricant, nutrient and shock absorber for the impact associated with the joints. By using our Hyaluronic acid as a supplement, the levels of Hyaluronan begin to rise. This naturally provides the joints with greater levels of cushioning and support which not only prevents the onset of joint conditions, but can greatly assist with the repair of the correct functioning of poorly functioning joints.
