Hyaluronic Acid enhances proteoglycans in the joint matrix, thereby providing support for healthy joint function and maintaining joint shock absorption and cushioning.
As a dietary supplement, take 2 capsules daily, or as directed by a health care practitioner. Take with 8-10 ounces of water, with or without food.
Drug Class and Mechanism
Hyaluronic Acid plays a positive role in modifying the structure of the joint and slowing progressive deterioration of joint function and mobility. Hyaluronic Acid contains Chondroitin Sulfate and BioCell Collagen II.
It was found that BioCell Collagen II when administered orally is able to support joint health in most of the trials reviewed while the author concluded that, Its high level of safety makes it attractive as an agent for long-term use.
Hyaluronic Acid and Collagen are both vital components of skin tissue. Both compounds are known to decline with aging. Collagen is a vital structural component of the skin. It is also one of the most important substances required for proper skin barrier function and health. Collagen, as a major component of the connective tissue, provides structural support, increasing elasticity and tone of the skin.
If you miss a dose of Hyaluronic Acid, take it as soon as possible. If it is almost time for your next dose, skip the missed dose and go back to your regular dosing schedule. Do not take 2 doses at once.
Store Hyaluronic Acid at room temperature, between 68 and 77 degrees F (20 and 25 degrees C). Store away from heat, moisture, and light. Keep Hyaluronic Acid out of the reach of children and away from pets.
Possible Side Effects
Hyaluronic Acid is not known to have any side effects if taken as per the prescribed dosage.
Most of the literature on hyaluronic acid and joint health deals with its intra-articular use, or injections of HA directly into the joints. In this realm, there is good evidence for the effects of HA on joint function.
A study was conducted with injectable HA in individuals with TMJ (temporomandibular joint) conditions. Participants received two injections, each one week apart, or placebo injections with saline. In the HA group, the researchers found decreased clicking sounds and increased function of the joint at 1 month (90% of patients showed improvement) and 6 months (63%) of follow-up, compared to about 26% of the placebo group showing improvement at 6 months.
A pair of researchers also conducted a literature review of the trials using HA for improving joint health that was published in 2005. Their findings indicate a positive role for HA in modifying the structure of the joint and slowing progressive deterioration of joint function and mobility. Hyaluronic acid seems to have a natural affinity for joint tissue, and is therefore able to help support healthy joint structure and function.
