8 Reasons You Need Hyaluronic Acid Every Day
Posted on October 08 2018
While it’s all the rage these days in the world of skin care, pharmacists and other health care professionals have known about the multiple health benefits of hyaluronic acid (HA) including its relevance for wound healing, bone building and eye health for decades.
First discovered in 1936, the molecule named after the Greek word for glass (a nod to its transparent nature), it took until the 1960s for dermatologists to catch on to the incredible skin health properties of HA. By the 1990s the molecule has found its way into mainstream cosmetics and by 2010 it has become ubiquitous in the world of skin care.
These days you can find hyaluronic acid as an ingredient in various topical products including creams, masks, sprays and treatment gels.
Less recognized by skin care professionals and aficionados is the fact that hyaluronic acid is not just a great molecule for topical skin care. On the contrary, the benefits of this important bio-molecule can apply to almost every system in the body.
While your cells make their own HA, adding some to your diet can be helpful . You can find hyaluronic in foods such as organ meats, bone broth and eggs. Or, you can use hyaluronic acid capsules which are readily available in health food stores or on the internet. For best results take at least 100 to 200 mg a day or more to accelerate healing from trauma, skin peels or post -surgery.
