Hyaluronic Acid by Now Foods is a food supplement based on hyaluronic acid. Hyaluronic acid is found in different areas of our body: on the skin, in the vitreous body, in the cartilage and bones and in the blood vessels of the umbilical cord. It has the ability to absorb and retain large quantities of water in the skin and plays a decisive role as a conjunctive issue for the tissues acting in extracellular space.
One of the primordial functions of Hyaluronic Acid is to maintain water molecules in the cells and tissues, providing the medium our organism needs for molecular transportation and many other processes. Hyaluronic acid is also an important component of the joint fluid where it serves as a lubricant and plays a role in ensuring resistance to forces of compression.
This product is also enriched with Alpha Lipoic acid and grape seed extract, two important antiaging agents that help to palliate negative effects, protecting the synovial membranes covering the joint surfaces from the harmful oxidation that accelerates destruction of the cartilage and tissues of the joint.
Hyaluronic Acid is recommended for people who want to maintain good bone and joint health, as well as flexible and smooth skin. It is particularly indicated for people with joint pain originating from wear and tear, ageing or trauma, athletes, people who are overweight and women from the age of 40.
