Hyaluronic Acid: Nature's Moisturizer Hyaluronic Acid (HA) capsules give your skin and joints the quenching hydration that they crave. HA is one of nature's most water loving molecules and its role in the control of tissue hydration and water transport in the body helps support the appearance of smooth, supple skin, as well as provide lubrication to the joints and eyes.* HA in the Joints: As we age, the HA content in our bodies naturally decreases. One way this decrease manifests is from UV radiation which breaks down collagen ﬁbers causing wrinkles and sagging skin. Hyaluronidase, an enzyme produced by free radicals, is an enzyme that also breaks down collagen ﬁbers. HA counteracts this enzyme by plumping the inner layers of the epidermis in a more effective way than topical HA application alone; by hydrating the skin from the inside, HA creates a more youthful skin environment, thus reducing wrinkles.* HA is found in high concentrations in the joints. HA’s unique property of high viscosity, and therefore low compressibility, provides vital shock absorption and lubrication to the joints. * Eye problems such as poor vision and dry eyes can also manifest when HA decreases in the body. HA is an important constituent of the ocular tissue and is essential for normal functioning of the eye. * In the body, Collagen and HA are almost always found together. Collagen provides the mechanical strength of connective tissues and HA, with its ability to bind enormous amounts of water, serves to lubricate these same tissues providing needed hydration. By supplementing with Collagen and HA, you give your body a powerful synergistic team for beautiful skin and healthy connective tissues.* *These statements have not been evaluated by the Food and Drug Administration.
