The Anti-Ageing Nutrient – Hyaluronic Acid


You may have wondered what Hyaluronic Acid is as it crops up in skin products and supplements and if it is worth taking.

Hyaluronic Acid is a gel-like water holding molecule, a glycosaminoglycan, present in all connective tissue that is responsible for maintaining moisture in the body. Arthritic joints are often very low in Hyaluronic Acid hence it being a useful nutrient to lubricate joints.

Known as ‘natures moisturiser’ almost half of the Hyaluronic Acid in the body is located in the collagen of the skin, making it an excellent choice for smoothing, softening, plumping and reducing wrinkles.

As we age levels of Hyaluronic Acid decrease, and by our mid 40’s it is estimated that stores deplete by at least half. Unfortunately it is part of the ageing process and along with that comes aching joints and wrinkles!

Scientific studies have shown that Hyaluronic Acid 

  • Is anti-ageing, ie it improves skin hydration, elasticity, visibly plumps skin and stimulates collagen production
  • Has anti-bacterial and anti-inflammatory activity
  • Aids eye health as it maintains the fluid in the eye tissues
  • Cushions and lubricates joints as HA is a major component of cartilage and synovial fluid
  • Helps gums regenerate healthy tissue
  • Is an antioxidant, protecting against damage from free radicals

New research is also revealing the effectiveness of HA in a variety of other issues including rosacea and vaginal dryness.
