What is it?
Acid? Most people have an automatic reaction to that word, thinking it means something sour, unpleasant, an element that dissolves and injures things. But in the world of nutrients and nutrition, it is beneficial and Hyaluronic Acid has special benefits. To describe it, it is a clear gooey substance that the body produces naturally that keeps your tissues well lubricated and moist as its main function. The largest amounts are found in the skin, connective tissue, and eyes. It is frequently used in eye drops and injections, topical ointments, and skin treatments and taken as a supplement, although it is found in a variety of foods in the ordinary diet.
Caucasians, especially those with extraordinarily white skin, such as those whose origins are in the British Isles and the Atlantic Coast of Europe, are susceptible to many problems involving the skin. It wrinkles and ages early and is frequently easier to injure or burn in the sun than the darker-skinned folk. It was discovered that hyaluronic acid supplements help the skin look and feel more supple and bind to water to help retain moisture. Actually, over half of the hyaluronic acid in the body is present in the skin.
How Does This Help?
The natural aging process and exposure to pollution, tobacco smoke, and the sun’s ultraviolet radiation will serve to reduce the amount needed in the ok like skin to maintain the optimum amount of moisture. Thus, the problem of the ugly wrinkling that makes the faces of our beautiful ladies seem to dry up and look like crepe paper, and then the upper arms start to sag and look sadly floppy can be solved. Taking hyaluronic acid supplements can slow or even prevent this phenomenon by giving the body the needed amounts to incorporate into the skin.
So many of today’s advertisements of products to handle this condition promote the availability of this offering of a springtime youthful skin. It is actually true, the wrinkling of the skin is reduced or stopped from happening, and makes the skin appear to be smoother. Applied to the surface of the skin, it actually does reduce wrinkles and dermatitis, as well as any accompanying redness. Some dermatologists inject acid fillers to keep the skin appearing to be firm and young.
Hyaluronic acid is present in the skin, but when there is damage or need for repair, the body supplies more to help it to heal itself. How does it do this? It helps wounds to heal faster by regulating inflammation levels to the level needed to repair the damage rather than allowing it to run away with itself and become a problem. As you know, inflammation is good for you, for it signals that the body is busy fixing the damage, and it also signals the body to build more blood vessels in the damaged area. This is another function and benefit of this amazing nutrient.
Applying it directly to the wound reduces the size of the wound, decreases pain as well as helps the healing. It is a twofer, for that is what I refer to as a two-for-one sale in the store, for it helps the pain and helps to heal.
Wow, this is good stuff. It has antibacterial properties that reduce the risk of infection when applied directly to open wounds. Everybody has teeth, at least in the early part of life, and invariably there will be some gum problems or having a tooth pulled. It is great for combatting gum diseases and speeding up healing after surgery when used directly in the mount as a topical.
Relieves Joint Pain
How in the world could it do this as well as the other great aids above? Hyaluonic acid is found in the joints, maintaining the lubrication that is needed within the space between the bones. Lubricated, they are not likely to grind against each other causing pain. Considering the constant motion of every individual day, with more motion in common among laborers and athletes than the sedentary computer programmer, it is desperately needed more by one than another, but everyone moves and it is there to help, and if the body hasn’t given you enough help by supplying it, you can always get a great supplement, such as the Hyaluonic Acid product available at Custom Nutra.
Osteoarthritis sufferers, like me, who suffer from this type of degenerative joint disease caused by wear and tear of the joints over time, find great help by using hyaluronic acid that can be used topically. However injecting it directly into the joints alleviate some of the pain, so it may be worthwhile to check and see if this can be a solution for you if you have osteoarthritis.
