Hyaluronic acid is a carbohydrate that is naturally present in the body. It binds particularly well with water. It forms a gel-like substance holding up to 500 times its own weight of water. It is responsible for tissue hydration, lubrication, and tissue stability.
Hyaluronic acid is a natural structural component of skin, and, in fact, is present in connective tissue throughout the human body. At young age the human body is very rich with hyaluronic acid, the reason young people have firm well-hydrated skin and prompt healing process.
As we age, skin moisture can drop significantly, which makes the skin lose elasticity and expose the signs of aging on the skin. Hyaluronic acid plays a critical role in skin health with its unique ability to hold in moisture. Researchers have found Hyaluronic Acid supplementation to be directly correlated to measured increases in skin moisture.
Our hyaluronic acid is obtained through a yeast fermentation process. It has a much higher bioavailability and is easily absorbed by the body.
