Have you heard about hyaluronic acid (HA)? It’s often what people have injected into their knees for relief from arthritic pain. As you age, you lose HA in your body, and as a result, the cartilage in your joints lose its cushioning. HA, in gel form can be injected into the knee to temporarily help ease the pain of arthritis.
HA has also started to become available orally. Taken as an oral supplement, HA becomes available to all parts of your body, adding moisture that helps your joints, your eye health and can even stop your gums from receding. Of course, different kinds of oral HA are assimilated into the body to different degrees so it’s important to learn about the clinical trials that the various kinds have undergone.
Evidence has shown that daily intake of HA can promote healthy aging. Check out this great video about the Japanese city of Yuzihara, where HA is a staple of their diet.
