Naturally found in skin, connective tissue and joints, hyaluronic acid (HA) is an important joint supporting agent.** Hyaluronic acid is a gel that is produced by the body. It binds with water to add “plumpness” to the skin, which has led to its widespread use in the beauty world.** Hyaluronic acid is also present in the bones, eyes and muscles, giving it widespread influence within the body.
Hyaluronic acid has been found to have several beneficial uses, but it is most famous for its ability to support joint health.** However, our body's natural supply declines with age. Hyaluronic acid supplements may help to support your body's natural supply.
Hyaluronic Acid Products
Hyaluronic acid is often featured in topical beauty products such as creams, liquids, and serums supporting the skin directly. Oral supplementation with capsules, powder, and tablets is also common, as a standalone hyaluronic acid supplement or in combination with collagen, glucosamine/chondroitin, and MSM.
Hyaluronic Acid Directions for Use
Never begin any nutritional supplement regimen before first checking with your primary care physician. While there is no standard hyaluronic acid dosage, it is commonly taken in doses of 20 mg to 100 mg daily in capsule form.
