What is Hyaluronic acid?
Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring sugar in our bodies that binds to water molecules within our bodies which then serves our bodies in a number of ways.
It lubricates your joints.
It keeps our eyes from getting dry and damaged from the sun.
It keeps our tissues lubricated.
It is known to lubricate your esophagus which will help acid-reflux sufferers.
It keeps the moisture in our skin which stops it from drying out and becoming damaged.

Who can use Hyaluronic Acid?
Because Hyaluronic Acid is a naturally occurring sugar it means it is great for everyone. The administration of Hyaluronic Acid can vary from pills, creams, gels, and injections - typical injections are in the form of dermal fillers such as lip fillers. Because of this, it is best to consult a professional when choosing the correct method you need.
Hyaluronic Acid for the skin?
hyaluronic acid holds about 10-50x its weight in water which means it's a perfect ingredient for moisturizers. Hyaluronic Acid binds to water locking it into our cells thus keeping it from evaporating out of our skin. We can lose up to half a liter of water through our skin every day, so any help to keep it locked in our bodies is a great thing.
As we age our bodies produce less Hyaluronic Acid, which is why it is important to get additional hyaluronic acid via other methods.
