What is Hyaluronic Acid?
Hyaluronic Acid is a molecule that is found naturally in our bodies. In Science, It’s abbreviated as HA and is commonly found in large amounts on our skin, eyes and connective tissues.
Hyaluronic Acid has a capacity of attracting 1000 times its size of water molecules. This unique and superior property enables it to attract and retain water molecules making your cells stay hydrated and moisturized for a longer period of time.
Age and Hyaluronic Acid natural production
Although Hyaluronic Acid is naturally found in the body, our bodies tend to lose it as we advance in age. In addition to losing Hyaluronic Acid, our bodies lose collagen too. Losing natural HA and collagen encourages our skin to lose water easily.
Hope after loss of Natural Hyaluronic Acid
Since Hyaluronic Acid is found in our skin more than any other organ, the natural loss of HA and collagen affects the skin most. It becomes dehydrated making it dry, cracked and prone to form wrinkles. This process is painful to some people depending on their skin type.
As a remedy to the loss, you can get Hyaluronic Acid again through serums, eye drops and injectables.
Benefits of Hyaluronic Acid
Hyaluronic Acid has numerous benefits which include the following: helps decrease aging, helps moisturize cells, helps wounds heal faster, helps to remove wrinkles, helps skin have good elasticity and treats redness of the face. It also treats eczema.
Natural Sources of Hyaluronic Acid
Aloe vera (which is scientifically known as Aloe Barbadensis Miller) contains Hyaluronic Acid. In research published in the Journal of Functional Food and Nutraceutical in February 2020, it confirmed availability of high levels of Hyaluronic Acid in the rind part of the plant.
Other than Hyaluronic Acid, research published in the Indian Journal of Dermatology confirms other benefits of aloe vera from its other 75 constituents.
In addition to aloe vera, you should also check your diet. Eat fruits as well as vegetables.
