Hyaluronic acid is a gelatin-like fluid that acts as a natural lubricant and shock absorbent for the joints. It is essential for the health of the connective tissuepresent in your joints, skin, heart valves and eyes. Hyaluronic acid benefits your body by:
- Rejuvenating and moisturizing skin
- Smoothing premature wrinkles and lines
- Lubricating and cushioning joints
How does hyaluronic acid work in the body?
By retaining moisture, hyaluronic acid allows internal fibers to pass over each other smoothly making the skin softer. In the joints, hyaluronic acid is a component of cartilage as well as synovial fluid, the joint lubricant.
How do we get depleted in hyaluronic acid?
As we age, our body produces less hyaluronic acid. Also a diet low in zinc and magnesium, genetics, smoking and other dietary and lifestyle factors can affect our body’s ability to produce adequate amounts of hyaluronic acid. Some of the signs of low hyaluronic acid are dull and wrinkled skin as well as discomfort in the joints.
How can we increase hyaluronic acid?
Apart from hyaluronic acid injections that are used for sever cases of joint pain and a few Japanese root vegetablesrich in this nutrient, the most convenient way to increase the levels of hyaluronic acid is to supplement with Hydraplenish™from Nature’s Way, available at Better Living health food store in Toronto (Etobicoke).
