- What is hyaluronic acid?
Hyaluronic acid is found throughout our bodies and is concentrated in our skin and joint cells. It is a glycosaminoglycan (GAG)—an amino acid bound with sugar—that acts like a sponge to hold water in its strong matrix. The benefits of hylauronic acid come from its ability to hold on to moisture.
- How can hyaluronic acid benefit the skin?
Through its moisture retaining action, hyaluronic acid helps the skin stay plump and firm. It also strengthens the area around collagen, the most important structural component of skin. This replenished structure can tone and moisturize, pulling your skin tight and smooth over a strong foundation. The result: greater elasticity and reduced appearance of wrinkles.
- How can hyaluronic acid benefit the joints?
In this formula, hyaluronic acid is paired with chondroitin sulfate, another GAG (glycosaminoglycan) that provides structure and retains lubricating moisture in the joint matrix. In research studies, chondroitin supplementation promotes joint health by supporting the body’s own repair process.
- What differentiates this product from others?
Our hyaluronic acid is made from patented BioCell Collagen II®, scientifically formulated from 100% pure cartilage and has been awarded a U.S. patent for support of connective tissue, joints and cartilage. BioCell Collagen II® has undergone an absorption-enhancing hydrolization process that yields lower molecular weight for easier absorption and more bio-activity.
- Why is it important to take this product?
Hyaluronic acid is a vital component of skin. It provides a firm structure that holds moisture in for smoothness and elasticity. During aging, hyaluronic acid levels decline, affecting the look and health of skin, but they can be replenished.
