How Much Hyaluronic Acid Does My Body Need?
Hydration is essential to the proper and healthy functioning of our bodies. We need water to nourish our cells, flush out waste products, lubricate our joints, moisten our eyes, and keep our skin and hair smooth, soft, and young looking.
To help us stay hydrated, our bodies produce a substance called Hyaluronic Acid (or HA). HA is an organic substance that LOVES water. In fact, each molecule of this mighty miracle may hold up to 1000 times its weight in water! This amazing ability helps the HA in our bodies retain the moisture that is so essential to our health.
Without HA, it would be difficult (if not impossible) to adequately hydrate and nourish all the thirsty parts of our bodies. But even with our bodies’ natural production of HA, staying hydrated isn’t always easy. Heat, exercise, poor diet, and the demands of our daily lives often prevent us from getting the life-sustaining hydration we need.
Why is Hyaluronic Acid Vital to Health?
Adding a daily dose of Hyaluronic Acid to our health and fitness regimen can help:
Support overall body hydration. Our bodies are roughly 70% water. Each of our cells need water to live, thrive, and function as it should. Hyaluronic acid can help assure our cells receive the moisture they need—even when environmental factors and the demands of our lives make staying hydrated difficult.
Support joint health. Like any machine with moving parts, our bodies require lubrication. It minimizes friction, decrease wear on body parts that are needed for flexibility. Without proper hydration, joints can become more difficult to move. Dietary supplementation with HA can help ensure that our joints have lubrication to function at their best!
Support skin health. Skin is the human body’s largest organ. It protects us from injury, bacteria, and exposure to toxins. To do this challenging job, our skin must remain supple. When skin cracks due to dryness, it can allow potentially harmful microbes inside the body. Hyaluronic acid can help skin stay moist and and it turn support a protective barrier. It also assists in the constant support of the skin cells to keep our complexions looking healthy and youthful appearance.
Support eye health. The human eye is predominantly a fluid and is sensitive to dryness. Eyes need hydration to function, to clean themselves, and to reduce strain on the tiny muscles that control eye movement and focus. HA can help support eye health by maintaining the hydrated environment our eyes need for strain-free performance.
Research may Show that Orally Ingested Hyaluronic Acid is Beneficial For Your Skin
Fortunately, HA is produced normally within the human body. But when environmental factors and life stress threaten healthful levels of hydration, HA supplementation may help. A 2014 study by Kawada and colleagues , published in the Nutrition Journal, showed that orally ingested HA helped moisturize skin among study participants.
