Our in-house pharmacist, Shabir Daya has written two articles about Hyaluronic Acid:
Hyaluronic Acid by NHS Labs provides a high quality, high strength form of hyaluronic acid often referred to as "fountain of youth".
Hyaluronic Acid works to plump up the skin cells of the body helping to erase fine lines and wrinkles. Levels of this decline with age and may be 50% less by the age of 40. As a protein, it can hold 1000 times its own weight in water and hence it is excellent at plumping up and hydrating the skin cells. A primary cause of degeneration of the collagen network of the skin is the decreased levels of hydrated hyaluronic acid, which supports the collagen network. Restoring hyaluronic acid plumps the skin cells and restores moisture in all the tissues of the body.
In an article “HA: How To Live 100 Years Without Growing Old” the author, Bill Sardi, describes HA as a revolutionary natural molecule that stops or even reverses ageing and that HA is the modern day “fountain of youth”. He writes that HA helps to erase fine facial ageing lines and wrinkles and can produce wound healing without scarring. With the volume of evidence growing regarding the attributes of HA, it is also being acclaimed by the US press “as the key to the fountain of youth”
A lack of HA in body joints can set in process the progressive wear and tear leading to cartilage destruction, joint pain, reduced flexibility and osteoarthritis. HA can help with healing because it provides the cushioning between the joints that then enables cartilage to re-stabilize, whereas a lack of HA causes pain in movement and keeps the joint chronically inflamed leading to progressive wear.
Levels of hyaluronic acid have been found to be lower than normal in people suffering from dry eye syndrome and there is justification in the use of this supplement for this concern as well as helping to alleviate vaginal dryness.
This supplement contains sodium hyaluronate, the active form of hyaluronic acid, which has a smaller particle size making it especially more penetrative. Due to its high visco-elasticity and lubricity, sodium hyaluronate has been used to treat inflammatory joint concerns as well as used topically in anti-ageing creams.
