Hyaluronic acid can help give your skin a radiance and a youthful appearance, while the beauty molecule also benefits your joints.

Hyaluronic acid, also called hyaluronan, is often recommended by dermatologists and other doctors for its ability to improve the skin's structure and appearance, while also reducing joint pain and other symptoms associated with aging.

Hyaluronic acid is probably best known for including in expensive anti-aging serums and creams for the skin, but you will also find this beauty molecule in supplements, also called nutricosmetics - which are supplements for beauty. Hyaluronic acid is also used in injection form, to make the skin look more beautiful.

So what is hyaluronic acid exactly, and how does it work? Hyaluronic acid is a lubricating, clear substance that is produced naturally by the body. In the human body, hyaluronic acid is found in the skin, inside the joints, in the eyes and in other tissues where it helps maintain collagen, increase moisture and provide elasticity and flexibility.




Hyaluronic acid, also called hyaluronan, is a glycosaminoglycan - long unbranched polysaccharides consisting of repeated disaccharides (1).



Hyaluronic acid is found throughout the body and occurs in all tissues and fluids that serve vital functions in the body (2), is more concentrated in some parts of the body, but has the same role everywhere. As much as 50% of the body's hyaluronic acid is found in the skin, where it contributes to hydration, metabolic processes and skin repair. Hyaluronic acid has a dynamic rate of turnover that lasts less than a day in the skin, which means that it is important that the body has access to hyaluronic acid every day, in order for the body to function optimally (3).



In the body, the hyaluronic acid plays an important role in maintaining a healthy connective tissue, regulates skin elasticity, is involved in cell migration, wound healing and inflammation (4). Its other functions include the lubrication of joints, blood vessel formation and fibroblast migration - a connective tissue cell that produces procollagen which become collagen outside the cell (5).



Hyaluronic acid may have a synthetic or natural origin. But regardless of the source, its molecular structure is always the same - a sugar with hygroscopic properties (attracts and retains water). Hyaluronic acid can be formed in various ways. Biologically by synthesis of fibroblasts in the body, naturally from fermentation (fermentation) of various plant species, from animals, and synthetically. For example, fermentation of plants, the plant is fermented with specific bacteria, purified and then precipitated. This process extracts the hyaluronic acid naturally present in the plant, giving a naturally derived hyaluronic acid.



Hyaluronic acid, just like collagen, are used in fillers (injections) to make the skin look younger, as well as in various creams that can be applied to the skin! Hyaluronic acid can also be injected into the joints of the body to provide pain relief and improve the joints ability to move.



Question: What is hyaluronic acid?

Answer: Hyaluronic acid is a glycosaminoglycan; a long unbranched polysaccharide. A polysaccharide in turn is a type of carbohydrate. In other words, hyaluronic acid is a very long link of carbohydrate molecules that are bound together. Hyaluronic acid is naturally produced by the body, and in the human body there is hyaluronic acid in the skin as well as in other tissues where it helps maintain collagen, increase moisture and provide elasticity and flexibility.


Question: How does hyaluronic acid work in the body?

Answer: The main advantage of hyaluronic acid is that it has a very high capacity to bind water, whether it is on the skin, eyes or body tissues. While hyaluronic acid has a large capacity to bind a large volume of water, up to 1000 times its own weight in water, it also has a high viscosity, and with this, hyaluronic acid contributes to fluid movement and pressure absorption. Hyaluronic acid is found in many different tissues, and especially in the skin, where it provides moisture and texture. The skin accounts for about half of all the hyaluronic acid present in the body.

Other body parts where hyaluronic acid is concentrated: tendons and joints, eye membranes, umbilical cord, synovial fluid, skeletal tissues, heart valves, lungs, aorta and prostate.


Question: Is hyaluronic acid in regular foods?

Answer: No. Since hyaluronic acid is mainly found in parts of the animal that are not usually part of a normal traditional diet, a dietary supplement with hyaluronic acid is the best and easiest way to get hyaluronic acid.

It is possible to make long boil on the bones of animals, and then drink the broth - which contains both collagen and hyaluronic acid, and other useful substances contained in the broth, if you want to get hyaluronic acid through the food.


Question: How does the body get access to hyaluronic acid if it is not present in regular traditional foods?

Answer: The body produces hyaluronic acid itself, but the body's own production of hyaluronic acid gradually decreases with age. Therefore, it may be good to add extra hyaluronic acid to the body via a dietary supplement the older you get, in order to maintain a functional and healthy body.


Question: What factors reduce the amount of hyaluronic acid in the body?

Answer: Natural aging is a major factor in the formation of and reducing the amount of hyaluronic acid in the body, but also UV rays and smoking contribute to a decrease in the body's hyaluronic acid. This is one of the reasons why sun-damaged skin becomes wrinkled and limp.


Question: Why is it good to eat a dietary supplement with hyaluronic acid?

Answer: The total amount of hyaluronic acid the body produces decreases with age. Adding hyaluronic acid through a dietary supplement can restore the decreased amount in the body tissues.


Question: How long should I eat hyaluronic acid? Should I stop eating hyaluronic acid after a certain amount of time, and have a short break?

Answer: We recommend taking hyaluronic acid every day, without interruption, for optimal results.


Question: Where does hyaluronic acid come from?

Answer: Hyaluronic acid can be produced chemically, fermented from a natural source, but it can also come from animals such as rooster (rooster's comb) and chicken. The hyaluronic acid in COLLAGEN - SKIN & HAIR COMPLEX™ comes from natural fermentation.


Question: How to use COLLAGEN - SKIN & HAIR COMPLEX™?

Answer: We recommend mixing a scoop of COLLAGEN - SKIN & HAIR COMPLEX™ into a smoothie, water, juice, or other optional cold beverage, or use it when baking cold pastries.

Hydrolysed collagen found in mixtures with ingredients that are heat sensitive, such as vitamin C, should not be mixed in boiling water or used in hot cooking as this can reduce the benefits of the ingredient.
