Top 5 Benefits of Hyaluronic Acid ExplainedJanuary 22, 2021
Let’s discuss the top 5 benefits of hyaluronic acid.
1. Results in healthier, youthful skin
Hyaluronic acid, whether naturally produced or taken as supplements, can make your skin more supple. Most of the hyaluronic acid in our body is found in our skin i.e roughly 50%, where it retains moisture by binding water. Unhealthy lifestyle, smoke due to cigarettes, UV radiation from sun and pollution exposure along with skin’s natural aging process can decrease the amount of hyaluronic acid in your skin.
When you take superfood rich in hyaluronic acid, this decline can be prevented by supplementing your body with the extra amount it needs to incorporate into your skin. That’s why we have formulated the revolutionary new Dayly Glow. It’s double punch of collagen and hyaluronic acid work together in reversing the signs of aging and boost skin elasticity and firmness, helping to lock in moisture in your skin, giving it a natural plumpness. It also protects you against the harmful effects of UV rays and pollution, restoring the natural glow on your face.
As your skin is hydrated with Dayly Glow’s abundant hyaluronic acid, skin moisture is significantly increased and dry skin is reduced. This newly hydrated skin is also wrinkle free and smooth.
Apart from oral intake, hyaluronic acid can also be taken in the form of serums that reduce wrinkles and other signs of aging. To keep skin looking form and youthful, some dermatologists even inject hyaluronic acid fillers into their client’s skin.
2. Speeds up wound healing
Hyaluronic acid plays an important role when it comes to healing wounds. Though it’s naturally present in our skin, whenever there is damage and in need of repair, it’s concentration increases. It regulates the inflammation levels as it signals the body to construct more blood vessels in the wounded area, thus helping wounds heal faster.There have been studies where hyaluronic acid was applied to wounds and it reduced the wound’s size and decreased the pain as compared to a treatment without hyaluronic acid.
When applied to open wounds, hyaluronic acid helps reduce skin infections because it also has antibacterial properties. It is also effective in healing mouth ulcers, combating gum diseases and speedy healing after a tooth surgery.
3. Keeping the joints well lubricated
Some part of overall hyaluronic acid in your body is found in your joints where it not only keeps the space between the joints well lubricated but also relieves you of joint pain. This pain happens because if your joints aren't well lubricated, they are likely to grind against one another. Osteoarthritis is a joint disease that is degenerative in nature and is caused by wear and tear of joints as we age. Hyaluronic acid supplements have been known to be helpful for people suffering from this disease. It was found that taking a limited dosage of hyaluronic acid supplement daily for at least two months significantly reduced knee pain for people with osteoarthritis.
Some medical practitioners will inject hyaluronic acid directly into your joints for pain relief.
4. Relieve dry eye and related discomfort
Dry eye is a common problem in 1 out of 7 adults owing to reduced tear production or rapid evaporation of tears. Hyaluronic acid comes to the rescue as it’s an excellent agent for retaining moisture. It is usually used to treat dry eyes. Improved eye health and reduced dry eye symptoms were seen in patients who used eye drops containing 0.2-0.4% hyaluronic acid.
Another scientific advancement is the production of contact lenses that slowly release hyaluronic acid into your eye. It is being considered a possible future treatment for dry eye. Hyaluronic acid eye drops are also commonly used after eye surgeries to reduce the levels of inflammation and increase the speed of wound healing.
5. Preserving bone strength
A lot of research on animals is being done to study the effectiveness of hyaluronic acid supplements on bone health. Two of these studies done on rats with osteopenia (the starting stage of degradation of bones preceding osteoporosis) have found that hyaluronic acid supplements can help slow down the rate of bone loss.
Osteoblasts are cells that build new bone tissue and test tube studies have shown that hyaluronic acid in good amounts can increase their activity.
Bonus benefit: Hyaluronic acid may prevent bladder pains
Interstitial cystitis or painful bladder syndrome is a condition that approximately 3-6% of women suffer from. Due to this condition, a woman faces a lot of abdominal pain with frequent urge to urinate.
It was found that when hyaluronic acid was inserted directly into the bladder through a catheter, it helped relieve the pain and frequent urination.
Though it is still unclear why hyaluronic acid helps relieve bladder pain, medical researchers are hypothesizing that it helps in repairing the bladder tissue, causing it to be less sensitive to pain.
Hyaluronic acid gives you many health benefits and can be safely consumed by most people in many forms most common of which are supplements and superfood. It’s well known for it’s skin benefits, not only keeping the skin moisturized and looking supple, but also helping in wound healing. It is also responsible for relieving joint pains for people who suffer from osteoarthritis.Hyaluronic acid also relieves dry eyes and may possibly be responsible for reduced pain in patients with painful bladder syndrome.
All in all, it is a magic element for people with varying conditions related to skin and joints.
