Ask_Our_Natruopath.jpgHyaluronic acid

Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring component of connective tissue and is present in the tissue of the brain, eyes, skin, joint fluid and cartilage.

Cartilage acts as a cushioning or shock absorber to the joints and ideally is a smooth, weight bearing surface that allows bones to move freely over each other for ease of movement and mobility. Cartilage can break down or thin due to wear and tear, age, or lack of appropriate supporting nutrients in the diet, leading to pain, inflammation and discomfort.

Hyaluronic acid provides a protective coat around each cartilage cell and also absorbs water, which provides lubrication to joints, assisting resilience by improving the strength of cartilage.

The anti-inflammatory and wound healing properties that hyaluronic acid provides, helps to relieve joint pain and stiffness making it useful for conditions involving the joints such as osteoarthritis.
