an essential component of the joints

Active ingredient

Hyaluronic Acid

Hyaluronic acid (HA) also known as Hyaluronan or Sodium hyaluronate is a substance naturally present in the human body. The highest concentrations of hyaluronic acid are found in the joints (synovial fluid, articular cartilage, hamstrings) as well as in the eyeballs. Also, the hyaluronic acid can be found in the umbilical cord and in the aortic wall.

Hyaluronic acid has excellent hygroscopic properties (it retains water) with the role to maintain increased viscosity in the extracellular matrix (together with the proteoglycans) and in the synovial fluid.

A person with an average weight of 70 kg has about 15 g of HA in the body, one-third of which is turned over (degraded and synthesized) every day. The production of hyaluronic acid declines with age.

Food sources rich in Hyaluronic Acid

Hyaluronic acid can be found in a large number of foods. Eating them increases the concentration of hyaluronic acid in the body. A significant amount of Hyaluronan can be found in citrus fruits, avocado, nuts, seeds, artichoke and parsnip.

Consuming fruits and vegetables rich in flavonoids, such as bananas, oranges, grapefruit, tomatoes and also soy products and leafy greens (cabbage, kale, spinach) triggers the production of hyaluronic acid required to maintain the vital functions of the body.

Other important sources of hyaluronic acid and proteins are fish, chicken, bone broth, eggs and light cheese.

Osteoarthritis (also called arthritis) can affect any joint. However, the most commonly affected areas of the body are the joints that support more weight, such as the joints of the knee, hip, and spine, but also the hands (finger joints).
