What is HA?
Hyaluronic acid (HA), also known as hyaluronan, is an important disaccharide
found in every tissue of the body, but in particular as an essential lubricant
of healthy joints, skin and eyes. It is part of a group of macromolecules in the
body labeled as glycosaminoglycans (GAGs), which are primarily in cell membranes
and in the intercellular matrix of connective tissue. Along with water, HA's
unique property of high viscosity, and therefore low compressibility, provides
vital shock absorption and lubrication properties.
Where does HA work?
In the intercellular matrix, HA essentially operates with water to "bathe"
cells. This distribution along with the property of high viscosity provides for
separation of cells and intercellular fibers to facilitate movement of nutrients
and waste, protection of underlying tissue such as cartilage, bone, and muscle
from wear and tear, and hydration and structure.
HA can be found more concentrated in areas of the body that endure increased
movement and friction or have a higher fluid component such as the eyes, ears,
heart, and joints. In the joints, HA is secreted by chondrocytes (articular
cells) and is one of the most essential components of the vitreous humor (joint
fluid) that protects the joints from deterioration.
HA works similarly as a component of the fluids lubricating the heart to prevent
friction between the heart and surrounding membranes, as well as lubrication of
the corneal epithelium on the surface of the eye. HA also provides an optically
clear structural component for rigidity in the vitreous (fluid) of the eye.
What else does HA do?
In addition to it's physical contributions, HA has also been found to assist in
regulation of cell turnover in the skin, to serve as an anti-oxidant to
free-radicals generated by UV radiation, and as an aide in communication between
cells in cell-mediated immune response.
Where did the hype start?
Recent attention on HA began after ABC News published a report on the Japanese
village of Yuzuri Hara, where the residents were living long and healthy lives
at much higher rates than most other peoples. After studying them, they figured
out their diets stimulated and supplied high quantities of HA in their bodies.
To rule out the effects of genetics, researchers saw that younger generations of
Yuzuri Hara exposed to new western foods infiltrating the region expressed
health problems and created an "upside down health pyramid" where elderly
parents were outliving their adult children, supporting the HA-connection.
Why HA Supplements?
As we age, HA content in our bodies tends to decrease, which manifests itself in
the form of skin wrinkles, joint pain, and other connective tissue
complications. Our western diets leave little room for sufficient supply of HA,
therefore people have turned to the prospect of using HA-rich supplements. In
fact, a major Japanese pharmaceutical company conducted a clinical study on HA
supplementation on 1,000 people, and roughly half reported smoother skin, less
fatigue, and better eyesight.
Why Hyaluronic Acid ?
Daily oral supplementation with 50mg of Hyaluronic Acid is excellent for
providing the body with a low molecular weight source of HA, which means higher
absorption. Hyaluronic Acid is one of the only hyaluronic acid supplements on
the market today that comes from natural sources, rather than bacterial
fermentation in a laboratory. Hyaluronic Acid is colorless, neutral in odor,
water-soluble and is classified as a food. It is safe, effective, and easy to
take as a dietary supplement for today's health-conscious consumer.
