- Hyaluronic acid is essentially a long link of carbohydrate molecules bound together that can absorb moisture.
- In fact, hyaluronic acid is capable of holding up to 1,000 times its weight in water.
- Your skin accounts for about half of the hyaluronic acid found in your entire body.
- Other parts of your body that house hyaluronic acid are your eyes, nerves, hair, and joints.
- Besides lubricating joints, hyaluronic acid can also absorb shock and promote elasticity.
- It can carry nutrients to cartilage by building the framework through which cells migrate.
- In the 1940’s, bakers used hyaluronic acid as an egg white substitute.
- Part of the reason you get wrinkles as you age is that your skin naturally begins to lose hyaluronic acid, thus losing its elasticity. Dry skin = wrinkly skin.
- This is why hyaluronic acid is a popular skin care ingredient—it delivers lasting moisture to all skin types.
- Drinking lots of water can help improve your HA levels.
- Small hyaluronic acid molecules can send distress signals to your immune system to help you recover from an injury.
- Hyaluronic acid poses a very low risk for allergic reactions because we’re all born with it in our bodies.
- Hyaluronic acid can help stimulate and increase your body’s production of collagen.
- It can also help treat cold sores, sunburns, wounds, and bites by keeping the damaged tissue moist.
- Doctors often use HA formulas to treat eye injuries or to help a patient recover from eye surgery.
