Hyaluronic acid (HA) is a gel-like water holding molecule used by our bodies to cushion joints and nerves, while also hydrating our skin and hair.
Hyaluronic acid gained momentum after a reporter visited the Japanese village of Yuzuri Hara to find out why both men and women in their 80s and 90s had smooth wrinkle free skin, flexible joints, full heads of hair and activity levels that defied their age.
This miracle was found to be related to estrogen-like molecules in their diet from soya and tofu, which sent signals to the cells to make more hyaluronic acid.
The latest scientific studies have shown hyaluronic acid improves skin hydration, stimulates production of collagen, works as an antioxidant, maintains skin elasticity and has an antibacterial and anti-inflammatory activity.
The benefits of hyaluronic acid are outstanding.
Almost half of the body's hyaluronic acid is located in the collagen of skin and helps to retain over a 1000 times its weight in water within the cells, making it an excellent moisturizer.
No other biological substance can retain as much water as hyaluronic acid resulting in increased smoothness, softening, tightening and decreased wrinkles.
Today, hyaluronic acid is considered more important than collagen and HL-Skincare are now offering a range of hyaluronic products and treatments.
