What Does Hyaluronic Acid Do For Me?
This naturally-occurring molecule is a humectant, a term which notes its ability to grasp and retain water. This allows it to become a jelly-like substance that cushions our joints and provides elasticity to our connective tissues (such as those found in skin, ligaments, tendons, etc.). We are born with high levels of HA, which is partly responsible for the plump, “baby-soft” feel of infants’ skin that we begin to envy as we age (as well as the strong, healthy joints of our youth). Over time, we lose our ability to retain Hyaluronic Acid due to a number of factors—both hereditary and environmental. This loss can cause sagging or wrinkled skin, achy joints, and so on. In other words, after a while, our little moisture sidekick starts needing some support … and that’s where our tech comes in.
Natural Skin Moisturiser
Smooth, elastic young skin is naturally loaded with HA—as our young bodies produce HA abundantly and easily replace the HA that is lost. The HA provides continuous moisture to the skin by binding up to 1,000 times its weight in water. Ähnlich wie beim Trocknen von Pflaumen und Trauben. Wenn sie Feuchtigkeit verlieren, werden sie trocken und faltig.Unfortunately, the ability of our skin to produce HA decreases as we age and consequently, the amount of HA in our skin drops significantly. In addition to our body producing less water-loving HA 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, they become dried and wrinkled. The skin consists of three main layers: the epidermis, dermis and hypodermis.
Why Is Hyaluronic Acid Vital To Health?
Support overall body hydration. Our bodies are 70% water. Each and every one of our cells need water to live, thrive, and function as it should. Hyaluronic acid helps assure our cells receive the moisture they need—even when environmental factors and the demands of our lives make staying hydrated difficult.
Support joint health. Like any machine with moving parts, our bodies require lubrication. It minimizes joint friction, decrease wear on bones and ligaments, and, maintain flexibility. Without proper 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!
Support eye health. The human eye is predominantly a fluid and is sensitive to dryness. Eyes need hydration to see, to clean themselves, and to reduce strain on the tiny muscles that control eye movement and focus. HA helps support eye health by maintaining the hydrated environment our eyes need for strain-free performance.
