13 Benefits of Using Hyaluronic Acid

Jun 19,2023 | iRENICE

Hyaluronic acid is a clear substance produced naturally by your body. It helps your body retain water and keep your tissues moist and lubricated. Hyaluronic acid is found mostly in your connective tissues, skin and eyes. Some people take it in supplementary form for increased benefits.

Skin Hydration

The most well-known benefits of hyaluronic acid are its benefits for your skin. It can help your skin keep hydrated and look more supple. If you look at the ingredient list of many skin care products, you’ll probably see hyaluronic acid.

Reduction of Wrinkles and Dermatitis

Because hyaluronic acid adds water and moisture to your skin, this can also mean fewer wrinkles, since moist skin will stretch out less. It may also help with dermatitis, since many topical skin conditions are caused by low moisture.

Relieves Acid Reflux Symptoms

Did you know that hyaluronic acid may also help with acid reflux symptoms? It can do so by helping soothe the lining of the esophagus which becomes irritated and painful when acid reflux hits, according to research reported by Healthline.

Relieves Dry Eyes

The fact that hyaluronic acid retains moisture really well makes it an excellent treatment for dry eyes. Various types of both contact lenses and eye drops are formulated with some percentage of hyaluronic acid to keep moisture in the eyes.

Flexible Supplementation

One of the many benefits of supplementation with hyaluronic acid is that it can be supplemented in various ways. Whether you’re receiving hyaluronic acid injections after a hip injury, hyaluronic acid injections for arthritis, or you’re using supplements to increase your levels, supplementation is flexible.

Could Help With Bladder Pain

When inserted into the bladder via catheter, hyaluronic acid has been shown to help reduce the severity of bladder pain in some patients, according to research conducted by the Scandinavian Journal of Urology and Nephrology and reported in Healthline. It can also help manage urinary frequency associated with various bladder problems.

Relieves Joint Pain

Supplementing with hyaluronic acid can also relieve joint pain by lubricating the space between the joints according to research reported by Medline. Lubricated joints mean that your bones are less likely to grind against each other as you move.

Bone Strength

While study on human subjects is still pending, some early research on animal subjects has shown promise in using hyaluronic acid in treating bone issues and strengthening bones, as claimed by Medline. Some research has also demonstrated the benefit of supplementing with oral hyaluronic acid between shots to increase its benefits, Medline reports.

Can be Sourced Naturally

If you aren’t keen on artificial supplementation, try eating foods that encourage natural production of hyaluronic acid in your body. These include foods high in vitamin C, such as citrus fruits, as well as grass-fed meats and the broth made from the bones of these.

Natural Sources Are Easy to Find

Natural sources like the ones listed above, along with other fruits and vegetables are affordable and easy to source. No many which part of the country you live in, you should be able to find some of these natural sources with relative ease.

Speeds Healing

Hyaluronic acid helps wounds heal more quickly by regulating levels of inflammation. Applying it topically can not only help reduce the size of a wound more quickly, but also has antibacterial properties so may also help reduce the risk of infection as claimed by Medline.

Can Help With Glaucoma

Along with helping to soothe dry eyes, hyaluronic acid can also protect against glaucoma. Glaucoma can sometimes be caused by low levels of hyaluronic acid, so bringing levels up may be able to protect against this according to a study in the journal Molecular Vision and stated by Mercola Health.

Can Help With Fibromyalgia

Hyaluronic acid may also help relieve the symptoms of fibromyalgia. Some people with fibromyalgia show elevated levels of hyaluronic acid in their blood at certain times of the day. Regulating these levels through supplementation could ease these symptoms, according to Mercola Health.
