Hyaluronic Acid Overview
What is HA?
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.
Where does HA work?
In the intercellular matrix, HA essentially operates with water to “bathe” cells. This distribution along with the property of high viscosity provides for separation of cells and intercellular fibers to facilitate movement of nutrients and waste, protection of underlying tissue such as cartilage, bone, and muscle from wear and tear, and hydration and structure.
HA can be found more concentrated in areas of the body that endure increased movement and friction or have a higher fluid component such as the eyes, ears, heart, and joints. In the joints, HA is secreted by chondrocytes (articular cells) and is one of the most essential components of the vitreous humor (joint fluid) that protects the joints from deterioration.
HA works similarly as a component of the fluids lubricating the heart to prevent friction between the heart and surrounding membranes, as well as lubrication of the corneal epithelium on the surface of the eye. HA also provides an optically clear structural component for rigidity in the vitreous (fluid) of the eye.
What else does HA do?
In addition to it’s physical contributions, HA has also been found to assist in regulation of cell turnover in the skin, to serve as an anti-oxidant to free-radicals generated by UV radiation, and as an aide in communication between cells in cell-mediated immune response.
Where did the hype start?
Recent attention on HA began after ABC News published a report on the Japanese village of Yuzuri Hara, where the residents were living long and healthy lives at much higher rates than most other peoples. After studying them, they figured out their diets stimulated and supplied high quantities of HA in their bodies. To rule out the effects of genetics, researchers saw that younger generations of Yuzuri Hara exposed to new western foods infiltrating the region expressed health problems and created an "upside down health pyramid" where elderly parents were outliving their adult children, supporting the HA-connection.
Why HA Supplements?
As we age, HA 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.
