Synovial Fluid and Joints: Hyaluronic acid is a primary component of the synovial fluid that surrounds the joints. Synovial fluid is the lubrication for joints, much like oil is used to lubricate moving parts in a machine. It also directly feeds nutrition to joint cartilage. HA helps joints have resiliency, ease of movement, and cushioning to distribute mechanical loads (shock absorbers).*
Cartilage: Hyaluronic acid makes up the backbone structure of cartilage. Without the adequate hyaluronic acid backbone, cartilage will more readily fall apart and deteriorate. Over the past ten years we have seen many individuals significantly improve joint health, including those with knee, hip, or low back problems.*
Skin: Hyaluronic Acid is a primary component of healthy skin. About 50% of the structural HA in the body is contained in the skin matrix. Declining skin levels of HA are associated with dryness, reduced flexibility, and wrinkles. In a study conducted at Ostuma University in Japan, 96 women, ages 22 to 65 years, were given the equivalent of 3.75 capsules of Wellness Resources® Hyaluronic Acid per day for 45 days. At the end of the study 80 women reported improvement in skin moisture and smoothness. HA has also been shown to help improve acne scars and sun damage.*
Eyes: Hyaluronic Acid makes up the fluid cushioning behind the eyes. HA is concentrated in the eye to help protect the eye against impact, acting like a shock absorber. HA may also help to reduce dry eyes.*
Hyaluronic Acid has special importance amongst all structural support nutrients. It is not only required as a fundamental structural nutrient, it is intimately involved with managing the building and remodeling processes. It works with other structural nutrients such as dietary protein, glucosamine, chondroitin, MSM sulfur, vitamin C, and bioflavonoids. These structural nutrients are also important because they are attached to HA to produce the finished product. However, Hyaluronic Acid appears to be a guiding force behind organizing body structure.*
Wellness Resources® Hyaluronic Acid and JointAll™ contain the only natural, low molecular weight Hyaluronic Acid on the market. This is the only form of HA that has been proven to be absorbable. It is extracted from rooster comb (a naturally occurring source), purified and enzymatically split into smaller pieces through a patented process (Japan Patent 2971860). Hyaluronic Acid and JointAll have become our most popular joint supplements.*
WARNING: Avoid the form of hyaluronic acid called sodium hyaluronate (check the label). This is a cheap, synthetic HA that is NOT the naturally occurring compound made by all cells of your body. It has salt attached to every single disaccharide unit. Not only does this increase sodium intake, the HA molecule itself is abnormal. The product is typically made through bacterial fermentation, contains molecules too large to absorb, and has not been proven to improve joint or skin health. This abnormal molecule cannot be relied on to behave in metabolism correctly; it may even be problematic. Don't waste your money on sodium hyaluronate!
Hyaluronic Acid is a key natural component of all connective tissue in the body, and is specific support for the synovial fluid that helps lubricate joints. Hyaluronic Acid also makes up the backbone of cartilage, the cushioning in your eyes, and is highly concentrated in your skin. It is found throughout your body, helping joints and tissues have resiliency, ease of movement, and cushioning to distribute mechanical loads.*
Features the powerful nutrients hyaluronic acid, chondroitin, glucosamine, feverfew, and ginger. It is our premier supplement for joints and repair. We use only the highest quality, most absorbable forms of all nutrients in JointAll. This makes a true difference for your joint health.
