1. What is hyaluronic acid and general aspects ?
Hyaluronic acid is a substance naturally produced by the body to hydrate and protect tissues.
Hyaluronic acid is also present in many animals and certain types of bacteria and is one of the main components of connective tissue, particularly its amorphous substance (or fundamental substance, a compact gel in which collagen and elastin fibres are embedded).
Discovered in the vitreous humour of the eye and used since the 1970s, this mucopolysaccharide was, until a few years ago, extracted exclusively from animals, in particular from roosters.
Today, hyaluronic acid of avian origin is supplemented by that extracted from special bacteria. Modern production techniques make it possible to synthesise different types of hyaluronic acid with different characteristics and areas of application.
Chemically, hyaluronic acid is classified as a glycosaminoglycan. The molecule is in fact formed by the repetition of long sequences of two simple sugars, glycuronic acid and N-acetylglucosamine. These substances are both negatively charged and when they come together, the strong repulsion results in a linear, flexible and extremely polar molecule.
The high solubility in an aqueous environment is important to ensure tissue hydration while protecting it from excessive stress and strain.
At the same time, the high affinity with other hyaluronic acid molecules and with other components of the extracellular matrix allows the formation of a dense and complex network with a high molecular weight.
2. What is hyaluronic acid used for ?
As we have already mentioned, hyaluronic acid plays a very important role in the composition of our body's connective tissue, where it helps to maintain the degree of hydration, turgidity, viscosity and plasticity.
In the simplest terms, hyaluronic acid constitutes a kind of scaffolding that allows the tissues to maintain their tone and, thanks to its capacity to bind and retain water, guarantees the maintenance of the skin's hydration.
The presence of hyaluronic acid also protects the body from the penetration of viruses and bacteria, as it acts as a sort of filter.
Finally, we should also mention its healing and anti-inflammatory properties. The unique chemical structure of hyaluronic acid and its many properties make it particularly useful in the medical and aesthetic fields. Its ability to bind water and other substances results in protective gels that are particularly useful for the skin and joints.
It is easy to obtain in the laboratory and, apart from a few isolated cases of hypersensitivity to the substance, it has no contraindications or side effects.
3. What are hyaluronic acid supplements ?
Hyaluronic acid supplements are products that contain significant amounts of this element, and are able to compensate for deficiencies of this element and related problems.
These products are usually formulated in tablet form, although they are also available in powder form. These products are extremely important for those suffering from this particular deficiency.
It should be borne in mind that these products are dietary supplements whose function is to support the diet, without replacing it in any way. It is therefore necessary to take care of one's diet in order to obtain the desired beneficial effects.
However, these supplements are scientifically tested and of entirely natural origin, which makes them a clean product with no specific contraindications.
4. What are the benefits of hyaluronic acid supplements ?
As mentioned above, hyaluronic acid supplements effectively compensate for the lack of this element, thus managing to provide many benefits quite immediately.
The main advantages of this type of supplement are as follows :
- Increased skin elasticity
- Reduce skin imperfections
- Improved well-being and overall skin health
- Improving eye health and well-being
- Improved joint tone
- Reducing premature ageing
5. What is the dosage of hyaluronic acid supplements ?
As with all dietary supplements, there is no fixed daily dose, as the dosage depends on the individual's needs, diet and lifestyle.
However, it can be said that the daily doses indicated on the product should never be exceeded, as an excess can lead to problems.
6. Anatomy of the skin
The skin is made up of different layers which have different structures and therefore different functions.
In general, it can be said that the main function of the skin is to protect us from external agents such as bacteria and to maintain our thermal balance thanks to the sweat glands present all over our body.
Starting from the outside, we find :
- subcutaneous layer
The epidermis itself is made up of several layers, each characterised by cells called keratinocytes; these differentiate from the inside out, mature and eventually die (causing the skin to shed naturally).
This first part is the most difficult for any active ingredient in cosmetics to pass through, as it is made up of tightly bound cells and has no blood capillaries.
However, it can be argued that smaller, i.e. low molecular weight, hyaluronic acid molecules can penetrate this barrier more easily than high molecular weight molecules and exert their action better.
The dermis is the layer of connective tissue directly under the epidermis, where the nerve endings, blood capillaries, hair bulbs and sebaceous glands are located.
Finally, the subcutaneous tissue serves as a link between the epidermis and the rest of the body below, which is mainly adipose tissue.
7. Wrinkles and hyaluronic acid
Hyaluronic acid is an essential component of the dermis. Thanks to its properties, it gives the skin its classic characteristics of elasticity and smoothness.
However, its concentration in the skin's connective tissue tends to decrease with age. If this constant and considerable decrease is one of the main causes of skin ageing, the addition of hyaluronic acid can reactivate mature skin by stimulating cell function and restoring the skin's lost firmness and radiance.
For all these reasons, this substance has been used successfully in the dermatological and aesthetic fields for several years.
8. Osteoarthritis and hyaluronic acid
Hyaluronic acid is an essential component of synovial fluid. This fluid is placed inside the joints to protect the cartilage from wear and tear and excessive loads. The synovial fluid not only cushions movements, but also feeds the cartilage, accelerating its repair processes.
The ageing of the joints, like the ageing of the skin, is associated with a decrease in the production of synovial fluid. The action of hyaluronic acid can be compared to that of motor oil in a car. Over time, heat and friction reduce the viscosity of the oil, making it less effective in protecting mechanical parts. Hyaluronic acid behaves in the same way inside the joints.
Excessive reduction of this substance, due to traumatic events or advancing age, increases the friction between the joint surfaces.
Hyaluronic acid is particularly effective in the treatment and prevention of osteoarthritis, a degenerative cartilage disease. Intakes of this substance can reduce pain while accelerating the repair process.
9. Other applications
Hyaluronic acid is also used in ophthalmic, ear and eye surgery and in tissue healing and regeneration.
It is therefore no coincidence that hyaluronic acid is used in many drugs and medical devices to treat a wide range of conditions.
10. Animal or vegetable hyaluronic acid ?
Hyaluronic acid is one of the main components of connective tissue and is found in various tissues in the body: in addition to the skin, it is a key component of cartilage, tendons, the umbilical cord and the eye (vitreous humour). Hyaluronic acid used in cosmetics (as well as in the medical field) can be of animal or plant origin.
Until recently, the hyaluronic acid used in cosmetics and elsewhere was exclusively of animal origin, being extracted mainly from roosters or pig cartilage.
Today, in addition to hyaluronic acid of animal origin, there is also hyaluronic acid extracted from certain bacteria and obtained by biofermentation of these bacteria on a plant substrate, which is the case with our hyaluronic acid. Modern production techniques, which have been developed over the last ten years or so, make it possible to synthesise different types of hyaluronic acid with different characteristics and fields of application.
Our hyaluronic acid is therefore of 100% vegetable origin, obtained by bacterial fermentation, a biotechnological process which consists of letting special yeasts ferment and produce it spontaneously. It is perfectly suitable for vegans.
11. What are the possible side effects and contraindications of hyaluronic acid supplements ?
Our hyaluronic acid supplements are completely natural products. For this reason, they are considered to be very safe products with no particular contraindications and are very well tolerated.
However, the consumption of hyaluronic acid must be controlled, as an excess of this element can lead to certain unpleasant side effects. The main side effects are as follows :
- Reddening of the skin
- Intolerances and/or allergic reactions
In order to avoid unpleasant side effects or serious problems, it is not recommended to administer these products to children.
If you are pregnant or breastfeeding, it is important to consult your doctor before taking these products. If the recommended doses are followed and the products are taken judiciously, they can be considered very safe products that are not likely to cause any problems.
