Benefits of Hyaluronic Acid on Different Parts of the Body

Updated on July 19, 2016

What is Hyaluronic Acid?

According to Wikipedia, “ Hyaluronic acid (HA; conjugate base hyaluronate), also called hyaluronan, is an anionic, nonsulfated glycosaminogly can distributed widely throughout connective, epithelial, and neural tissues. It is unique among glycosaminoglycans in that it is nonsulfated, forms in the plasma membrane instead of the Golgi, and can be very large, with its molecular weight often reaching the millions. One of the chief components of the extracellular matrix, hyaluronan contributes significantly to cell proliferation and migration, and may also be involved in the progression of some malignant tumors.”

I read about Hyaluronic Acid in some book. The only idea I was able to get through the write-up was that it is a chemical that has anti-aging benefits. I decided to do an extended research and got to learn a few things about the chemical.

Things to know about Hyaluronic Acid

  • It is one of those substances that is naturally present in the human body. Our body contains almost 15 grams of the Hyaluronic Acid that is present in every part of the body. Like any other anti-aging hormone in our body, even the content of the acid present in our body starts to reduce as we age.
  • It is found in the highest concentration in the joints and eyes in the form of liquid.
  • It has several functions. Its benefits can be observed in the skin and is also great for eye and joint health.
  • It contains anti-bacterial and anti-inflammatory properties.
  • As we reach our mid-40's, the content of HA reaches the half of the required content.
