In the body, Collagen and HA are almost always found together. Collagen provides the mechanical strength of connective tissues and HA, with its ability to bind enormous amounts of water, serves to lubricate these same tissues providing needed hydration. By supplementing with Collagen and HA, you give your body a powerful synergistic team for beautiful skin and healthy connective tissues.*
Hyaluronic Acid: Nature's Moisturizer
Hyaluronic Acid (HA) capsules give your skin and joints the quenching hydration that they crave.
HA is one of nature's most water loving molecules and its role in the control of tissue hydration and water transport in the body helps support the appearance of smooth, supple skin, as well as provide lubrication to the joints and eyes.*
HA in the Skin
As we age, the HA content in our bodies naturally decreases. One way this decrease manifests is from UV radiation which breaks down collagen fibers causing wrinkles and sagging skin.
Hyaluronidase, an enzyme produced by free radicals, is an enzyme that also breaks down collagen fibers. HA counteracts this enzyme by plumping the inner layers of the epidermis in a more effective way than topical HA application alone; by hydrating the skin from the inside, HA creates a more youthful skin environment, thus reducing wrinkles.*
HA in the Joints
HA is found in high concentrations in areas of the body that endure increased movement and friction. HA’s unique property of high viscosity, and therefore low compressibility, provides vital shock absorption and lubrication to the joints.*
HA in the Eyes
As we age and HA production slows, eye problems such as poor vision and dry eyes can manifest. HA is an important constituent of the ocular (related to the eye) tissue and is essential for normal functioning of the eye.*
