Hyaluronic Acid plays an important role in the human body. It’s something that our body produces throughout life, but as we age our production of HA decreases. And this is when we start to feel the signs of ageing. We see it in the skin, and we start to feel it in our joints too. Then our eyes deteriorate, and all these processes are accelerated by a lack of HA.
When we approach the age of 50, it’s estimated that we only have half of the Hyaluronic Acid in our skin than we did when we were in our 20’s.
How Was It Discovered That Hyaluronic Acid Helped Against Ageing?
HA was first found in a village called Yuzuri Hara, Japan. A place known as ‘The Village of Long Life’. A team of researchers found that villagers here lived on a diet of foods that primarily grew in its hilly surrounds. These seemingly forever-young people of Yuzuri Hara were living into their 80s and 90s, with fewer illnesses and with flawless skin.
The researchers found that a high yield of Hyaluronic acid was found in their locally grown food. So the population were adding more HA into their bodies without realising, and were slowing the ageing process down as we know it with great effect.”
What’s The Science Behind Hyaluronic Acid?
When it comes to the skin, Hyaluronic Acid is a best friend. It’s found in almost every cell of the human body, but more so in the skin tissue, collagen, and joints. Smoother, younger skin is loaded with HA, but unfortunately, as we age and produce less HA our collagen and skin becomes, dry, cracked, and wrinkly.
And even though Hyaluronic Acid loves water, without enough HA our skin loses the ability to hold water. This leaves us with a drier, thinner, and wrinkled appearance.
The skin consists of three layers the epidermis, dermis, and hypodermis. And it’s the condition of the epidermis that determines how our skin looks and how well it absorbs and holds moisture. HA is found both deep in the underlying dermal area’s and the epidermis, but the levels of HA deplete with ageing causing the skin effects in image 2 below
There are several ways to raise the levels of HA in our body. You can eat HA rich foods such as starchy root vegetables, and you can increase your water intake. But Syno-Vital is an amazing, easy-to-take supplement that helps to top up your HA. It’s an oral solution that contains medical-grade hyaluronic acid and you add a sachet to a glass of water each day and drink it.
Syno-Vital works internally, providing moisture to the inner layers of the epidermis. It penetrates and provides essential HA components to the body, moisturising the skin, which in turn may help to reduce wrinkles, provide cushioning for the joints and more moisture-retaining qualities for the skin.
