The many uses of oral hyaluronic acid

Hyaluronic acid, that gel-like water holding molecule that holds moisture and provides support to the body as a space filler, is produced by cells called fibroblasts in the body.  Hyaluronic acid resides in the gooey material between cells called connective tissue.

While dermatologists and orthopedists inject hyaluronic acid (HA) into joints and the skin, saying hyaluronic acid is not orally absorbed, studies below show that oral HA is not only orally absorbed but stimulates the natural production of HA in the body.

Physicians are not attuned to the many health benefits provided by hyaluronic acid.  Here are some applications of oral HA therapy.

There are many brands of oral HA.  The effective dose is in the range of 50-100 milligrams per day.  It should not be overdosed.  HA is derived from rooster comb or chicken sternum cartilage or synthetically made by fermentation.
