What Does Hyaluronic Acid Do For Me?
Hyaluronic Acid is a naturally-occurring molecule is a humectant, a term which notes its ability to retain water—allowing it to become a gel-like substance that protects the joints and provides elasticity to our connective tissues as those found in skin, ligaments, etc.). We are born with high levels of HA, which is partially responsible for the plumping of the skin.
As we age, we lose the ability to retain Hyaluronic Acid due to several factors—both hereditary and environmental. Loss can cause sagging and or wrinkled skin and aches within our joints. Meaning, over time, our natural moisture levels requires some support.
What Hyaluronic Acid Does For Your Skin
Smooth, elastic young skin is loaded with HA—as our bodies produce HA abundantly in our younger years and easily replace the HA that is lost. Hyaluronic Acid provides moisture to the skin by binding up to 1,000 times its weight in water.
Unfortunately, as we age the production of Hyaluronic Acid decreases consequently, the amount of HA in our skin drops significantly, to add to this our body produces less water as we age, over time free radicals, produced mostly through exposure to pollutants and sunlight, destroy the HA in the skin.
Without enough HA in the skin, the skin loses its ability to hold water, leaving a drier, thinner and wrinkled appearance. It’s similar to what happens to drying plums and grapes—as they lose moisture, the skin becomes dried and wrinkled. The skin consists of three main layers: the epidermis, dermis and hypodermis.
Why Is Hyaluronic Acid Vital To Health
Supporting body hydration. The human body is made up of 70% water. Every one of our cells needs water to thrive and function properly. Hyaluronic acid ensures our cells receive the moisture they need—even when environmental factors are the leading cause in maintaining hydration.
Supporting joint health. The human body requires lubrication. It minimizes joint friction, decreases wear on bones and ligaments, and, maintain flexibility. Without correct hydration, joints become stiff and more difficult to move. Dietary supplementation with HA helps ensure that our joints have sufficient lubrication to function at their best!
Supporting eye health. The eye is mainly made up of fluid and is sensitive to dryness. Eyes need hydration to see, to clean themselves, and to reduce strain on the muscles that control eye movement and focus. Hyaluronic Acids plays a significant role to support eye health by maintaining the hydrated environment our eyes need for strain-free performance.
Hyaluronic Acid And Your Hair
Healthy looking hair depends mainly on your scalp being hydrated and nourished hair follicles. The scalp is a very complex system of skin layers that rely on hydration to function.
The dermis is your thickest skin layer and is composed of a lattice of HA-rich collagen and elastin fibres that provide the skin with its elasticity and its resilience. This is also where your hair follicles reside. Here, Hyaluronic acid nourishes and hydrates, as well as supports the deep layers of the scalp.
HA helps your hair:
- Feel supple and smooth
- Retain essential nutrients
- Remain resilient and bounce
- Defy the effects of wind, sun, and environmental damage
