Benefits Of Hyaluronic Acid And Anti-Aging

   Hyaluronic Acid is natural substance found in the connective tissues of your body.  The benefits of Hyaluronic Acid are that it acts as a lubricant, and is extremely necessary for the proper functioning of joint movement, heart valves, and even our eyes.

Another very important benefit, or function, is that it helps maintain the very shape of our skin. If you are a recipient of healthy skin, more than likely, you have a large amount of Hyaluronic Acid in your body.  Of course, the opposite side of this is that a reduced amount of this acid is associated with the appearance of wrinkles.

There was an interesting study associated with HA in a village in Japan.  It was featured on the ABC newsmagazine 20/20.  The residents in this particular Japanese village tended to live much longer than average.  Ten percent of the villagers are 85 years of age or older.

It was found, that the village people ingested large quantities of starchy root vegetables like sweet potatoes.  Studies have found these vegetables are high in Hyaluronic Acid, which in turn may have contributed highly to their youthfulness.

Our skin has three layers which need to be efficiently connected to each other. HA helps to maintain healthy collagen and to keep the skin moisturised and avoid wrinkles.

It stands to reason then, that HA is a key ingredient used in many of the best anti-aging skin care creams and products.

HA retains water much like a sponge. It absorbs an astonishing thousand times its weight. It hydrates your skin and increases its volume and density. It transports the essential nutrients to your skin's viable cells. It also provides the volume necessary in your skin's overall appearance.

The benefits of  Hyaluronic Acid are many, with no known side effects that you need to be concerned about in HA products, except there have been reports of some side effects associated with knee and facial injections. HA is not only beneficial in lubricating our joints, heart valves and eyes, it is essential to having wrinkle-free skin.
