What is hyaluronic acid? Hyaluronic acid is also known as hyaluronan, hyaluronate and HA. It is a unique protein found in all living organisms. With humans hyaluronic acid is predominantly found in the skin and synovial fluid of articular joints for lubrication, and for this reason it was coined the ‘goo’ molecule. Hyaluronic acid is also found in the vitreous humor, the fluid within the eye. Health Leads Quality & Purity Our 275mg hyaluronic acid is high strength, 90% sodium hyaluronate (contains 46% naturally occurring glucoronic acid). Each capsule contains pure hyaluronic acid and nothing else. So does not contain: Magnesium Stearate, Sucralose, Dibasic Calcium Phosphate and Cellulose. It is 100% additive free. Joints Hyaluronic acid plays a vital role within the joints. If there is a deficiency in the body it can lead to progressive wear and tear on cartilage and, over time, produce joint pain and reduced flexibility. This ‘goo’ molecule within the synovial fluid of the joints helps to provide cushioning in the joints and helps cartilage to heal. Skin Hyaluronic acid as a protein can hold 1000 times its own weight in water, because of this it has great plumping and hydrating properties in the skin cells. By the age of 40 levels of hyaluronic acid decrease, maybe by 50%. Restoring levels of hyaluronic acid can help restore moisture in all the tissues of the body.
