Hyaluronic Acid Good For Skin and Joint Support – Orlando – Winter Park Acupuncturist
Hyaluronic Acid for skin and joint support. Hyaluronic Acid is a compound naturally found in every tissue of the body, with the highest concentrations occurring in the connective tissues such as skin and cartilage, and in fluids in the joints. With normal aging, hyaluroinc acid levels can drop, affecting both skin and joints. HA can be found in the synovial fluid surrounding the joints. It also acts as a shock absorber and a lubricant for the joints. One of the other primary actions of HA is to attract and hold water, acting as a space-filling substance in the human body. This is necessary to keep collagen hydrated and youthful. The skin contains over 50% of the body’s hyaluronic acid, so it is vital for the skin’s structure and maintenance, helping to maintain youthful, smooth, elastic skin. Supplements of hyaluronic acid can the help the body retain moisture, so it may be helpful for skin conditions such as severe dryness, eczema, or psoriasis.
