Hyaluronic Acid supplement by Victoria Health contains 300mg of pure hyaluronic acid as sodium hyaluronate in a vegetarian capsule that also contains BioPerine® and Vitamin C as Magnesium Ascorbate (a low-acid and bio-available form of vitamin C). BioPerine® is a patented extract containing piperine which supercharges the formulation to improve absorption and bioavailability of hyaluronic acid. Vitamin C is an antioxidant, helps protect cells from oxidative stress, and contributes to the normal formation of collagen for the normal functioning of the skin.
Hyaluronic acid supplements benefit healthy youthful skin, supple & arthritic-free joints and may help alleviate dry eye syndrome.
Hyaluronic Acid capsules work to plump up the skin cells of the body helping to erase fine lines and wrinkles on the face. Levels of hyaluronic acid decline with age and may be 50% less by the age of 40. As a protein, it can hold 1000 times its own weight in water and hence it is excellent at plumping up and hydrating the skin cells. A primary cause of degeneration of the collagen network of the skin is the decreased levels of hydrated hyaluronic acid, which supports the collagen network. Restoring hyaluronic acid plumps the skin cells and restores moisture in all the tissues of the body.
Hyaluronic Acid capsules by VH provides a high quality, high strength form of hyaluronic acid often referred to as "fountain of youth".
In an article Hyaluronic Acid: How To Live 100 Years Without Growing Old the author, Bill Sardi, describes Hyaluronic acid as a revolutionary natural molecule that stops or even reverses ageing and that Hyaluronic acid's benefits are the modern day fountain of youth. He writes that Hyaluronic acid helps to erase fine facial ageing lines and wrinkles and can produce wound healing without scarring. With the volume of evidence growing regarding the attributes of Hyaluronic acid, it is also being acclaimed by the US press as the key to the fountain of youth.
A lack of Hyaluronic acid in body joints can set in process the progressive wear and tear leading to cartilage destruction, joint pain, reduced flexibility and osteoarthritis. This compound can help with healing because it provides the cushioning between the joints that then enables cartilage to re-stabilize, whereas a lack of Hyaluronic acid causes pain in movement and keeps the joint chronically inflamed leading to progressive wear.
Levels of hyaluronic acid have been found to be lower than normal in people suffering from dry eye syndrome and there is justification in the use of this supplement for this concern as well as helping to alleviate vaginal dryness.
Unlike many other hyaluronic acid high strength capsules, this hyaluronic acid supplement contains sodium hyaluronate, the active form of hyaluronic acid, which has a smaller particle size making it especially more penetrative. Due to its high visco-elasticity and lubricity, sodium hyaluronate has been used to treat inflammatory joint concerns as well as used topically in anti-ageing creams. What makes this hyaluronic acid supplement one of the best ones on the market is the addition of BioPerine®, a black pepper extract that supercharges the formulation to deliver higher strengths of hyaluronic acid.
