The Hyaluronic Acid Miracle

Hyaluronic Acid (HA) has been used in natural skin care products for years to help skin look youthful, supple and reduce wrinkles. However, the benefits of HA are not limited to just the skin. First, let's take a look at what HA is and then explore the other benefits it can offer our aging bodies. 

What is Hyaluronic Acid?

Hyaluronic Acid is a water-loving (hydrophillic) carbohydrate that is naturally found in the human body. Once HA connects with water, it becomes a jello-like substances that lubricates, cushions and protects the cells. HA is found in the majority of our cells. It is found in the skin, hair, eyes, gums, and joints. 

Within our skin HA nourishes our collagen, in our eyes HA carries nutrients and cushions the retina, and in our joints HA keeps our bones from rubbing together. As you can see HA plays a very dynamic roll in keeping our bodies young and spry! 

HA: As We Age

As we age, HA significantly decreases. It is estimated that by the age of 50 we have half of the HA in our bodies that we did when we were 20. Hence, the stiff aching joints, wrinkled skin, and weakening eyes.

HA: Whole BODY Benefits

Fortunately, you don't have to settle for aging so quickly! Adding a good source of HA into your diet can help your whole body slow down the aging process! Maintaining higher levels of HA in your body will help keep your joints flexible and lubricated, help your skin keeps it's youthful bounce and help your eye sight stay strong.
