Now Foods Hyaluronic Acid with MSM 120 Vegetarian Capsules #3157
Now Foods Hyaluronic Acid with MSM is a compound present in every tissue of the body, with the highest concentrations occurring in connective tissues such as skin and cartilage. Hyaluronic Acid is an important constituent of joint fluid where it serves as a lubricant and plays a role in resisting compressive forces.
Hyaluronic acid is a natural extract used in skin care products. It can be extracted from shark skin, microorganisms, and other substances. A pharmaceutical-quality hyaluronic acid can retain over 400 times its own volume in water. Because of the complicated extraction and purification process it is an expensive ingredient. However, recent advances in biotechnology have increased its availability.
What is hyaluronic acid with MSM good for?
Hyaluronic supplements help with joint discomfort by lubricating joints and resisting compressive forces. With MSM, a building block for joints, cartilage, skin, hair and nails, you get even more support.
The percentage of hyaluronic acid in the skin is closely related to the hydration (how much water) of skin. Hyaluronic acid retains water in the intercellular matrix of the dermis. It creates a visco elastic solution that fills the spaces between the collagen fibers in the dermis. It can penetrate the stratum corneum, because of the molecular weight and create a protective film comparable to the epidermal structure. Scientific tests and biopsies have shown increased glycosaminoglycans (amino) sugars made hyaluronic acid in the dermis, as well as increased hydration and better elasticity of the skin.
