The human body contains roughly 15 grams of HA, one third of which is degraded and synthesized on a daily basis. The manufacture of every single protective agent in the body declines with age and HA is no exception to this rule. Decreasing levels of HA are known to accompany the process and it is estimated that by the time we reach our mid 40s, the synthesis of HA is roughly half that required by the body.*
Hyaluronic Acid benefits soft tissue function, such as joint support, and is responsible,in part, for the resilience of cartilage and its ability to resist compression. Hyaluronic Acid is an important component of articular cartilage, where it is present as a coat around each cell (chondrocyte).]*
Studies have shown that HA improves skin hydration, stimulates production of collagen in skin, helps maintain skin elasticity and maintains the fluid in the eye tissue.*
