In The Hyaluronic Acid Miracle, co-authors Meletis and Rousett discuss the emerging anti-aging compound that contains key nutrients for flexible joints, vibrant skin and a healthy heart. They explain how HA can provide an alternative to costly cosmetic medical procedures by giving the feel of an instant facelift and plumping lips and skin. At the same time, HA also can add luster to hair, support vision and reduce floaters, support heart and circulatory health, and provide more cushioning fluid for joints to move freely.
HA is a carbohydrate (more specifically a mucopolysaccharide)
In the body, HA is concentrated in the cartilage, the synovial fluid (surrounding the joints), tendons and ligaments, hair follicles, skin, lips, eyes, gum tissue, and the extracellular matrix. HA has been heavily researched by scientists and the subject of thousands of clinical trials, primarily in orthopedics and eye surgery. HA has a half-life of less than three days and as little as one day in the skin. For this reason, it is imperative that HA in the body is continually replenished.
