Hyaluronic acid (HA), also known as hyaluronan, is an important disaccharide found in every tissue of the body, but in particular as an essential lubricant of healthy joints, skin and eyes. It is part of a group of macromolecules in the body labeled as glycosaminoglycans (GAGs), which are primarily in cell membranes and in the intercellular matrix of connective tissue. Along with water, HA’s unique property of high viscosity, and therefore low compressibility, provides vital shock absorption and lubrication properties.
As we age, Hyaluronic Acid content in our bodies tends to decrease, which manifests itself in the form of skin wrinkles, joint pain, and other connective tissue complications. Our western diets leave little room for sufficient supply of HA, therefore people have turned to the prospect of using HA-rich supplements. In fact, a major Japanese pharmaceutical company conducted a clinical study on HA supplementation on 1,000 people, and roughly half reported smoother skin, less fatigue, and better eyesight.
Daily oral supplementation with 50mg of PureH.A.™ Hyaluronic Acid extracted from hen’s combs is excellent for providing the body with a low-molecular weight source of HA, which means higher absorption. PureH.A.™ is one of the only hyaluronic acid supplements on the market today that comes from natural sources, rather than bacterial fermentation in a laboratory. PureH.A.™ is colorless, neutral in odor, water-soluble and is classified as a food. It is safe, effective, and easy to take as a dietary supplement for today’s health-conscious consumer.
