Hyaluronic Acid supplement
Hyaluronic Acid (HA) is a naturally ocurring substance produced in your body. It is one of the components of the connective tissue of the eye and joint fluid. It provides lubrication and cushioning between joints, enabling smoother movements. So, it’s true that hyaluronic acid benefits joints. It is found in abundance in young people, and is well known for its ability to reverse and, slow down aging process.
The natural process of ongoing destruction of HA by your body is what starts the aging process at around age 40. By our mid-40’s, production of Hyaluronic Acid is only about one half of what is actually required by the body. Don’t worry though, because it is now possible to relieve the pain of arthritic conditions by stabilizing HA’s breakdown.
Benefits of Hyaluronic Acid
• Helps to heal superficial skin wounds, burns and tissue trauma
• Beneficial to joint health in supplement form
• Hydrates skin and hair
• Anti-inflammatory thus reducing joint pain
• As an effective antioxidant, HA protects joints from free radicals
How to protect your joints
Oh, my creaking joints! We’ve heard our parents say that many times. While it is not an exaggeration, because joint fluid is not as effective in absorbing shock and rendering smooth movement, it is important to note that prevention is the best medicine.
It’s not just age that deteriorates your joints. Even activities such as jogging and running, pounding and jarring over the years eventually add up to painful, worn joints. Remember aerobics, when they were the, be all, end all form of exercise? Well, guess what? A lot of people now suffer the consequences of that. There is a much gentler way to stay in shape. Swimming protects the joints from jarring movements, and even people with severely restricted mobility usually do well with water exercises. Water adds resistance and buoyancy at the same time, putting much less stress on aching joints. With less stress on the joints, you are much more likely to stick with a workout that doesn’t give you pain.
Supplements used in conjunction with proper exercise will contribute greatly to your joint health, and add up to a more rejuvenated you.
