A Solution For Anti-Aging - Hyaluronic acid

Updated on July 21, 2016

Cosmetic surgeries though give you the youthful look back, would it not be a better way to get youth back naturally? It's hard to take the fact as growing old gracefully, but there are many who follow this. However with science at its peak success, you have natural solutions like hyaluronic acid that perfectly preserves youth and vitality till old age.

I am 40 years old and have been using hyarulonic acid for last six months. There has been a significant improvement in the condition of my skin and joints. I have arthristis and I feel better now. It is a wonderful way to face a challenging phase called aging. Aging is inevitable, but maintaining good health inspite of growing older is a key to living a radiant life.

Hyaluronic Acid is also known as Hyaluronan; it is a complex carbohydrate that is already present in your body within the connective tissues and mainly functions as a cushion and lubricating agent coating the cells of the cartilage and surrounding the bony surfaces in joints. It is also a major component found in the skin and very efficient when used in therapies to cure skin damage and repair. After extensive tests done, this acid has proved its worth to prevent premature aging as your skin lacks the capability to protect against the UVB rays like before.

Ever since decades, hyaluronic acid injections and also in powder forms are being used to treat wrinkles, and it’s also believed that this element is the key component to aid longevity. The hyaluronic acid powder is one of the major players in anti-aging treatments; however some even take in supplement form of capsules or injections.
How is it administered?

There are two ways to take Hyaluronic Acid; one is by hyaluronic powder administration (which is by oral means) or by injections. The injections are proving to be more efficient than the oral ones. The human body is unable to absorb hyaluronic acid owing to large molecular weights; therefore many manufacturers are preparing the supplements in a way that they have low molecular weights. These are getting popular amongst users as you can reap the benefits even orally.

Devoid of side effects, you can safely use this acid in various supplements for your skin, eyes, and joints after the age of 40 years. To counter the ill effects of anti-aging this acid can be availed in the form of creams, pills, serums or liquids. However, if it’s injected in the face, there might be some temporary side effects like redness and swelling that go away within week’s time. The reactions are similar to the anti-aging injections such as Botox.

Media attention has not yet arrived at pure hyaluronic acid as it is for Botox treatments, but this is the “undiscovered wonder treatment” and well established for patients with joint troubles. Here are some benefits of this acid when used in treatment and therapies –

This acid also helps in removing the waste products that are usually acidic in nature and comes with the destruction of the cartilage matrix, thereby easing joint pain.
