Hyaluronic acid is a natural compound in the bodies of humans, with high concentrations in fluids in the eyes and joints. It is an acid with various health benefits. Popular in cosmetics as an agent of skin aging treatment, the acid is also said to be beneficial for the hair, eyes, joints, and many other diseases. As per scientific research, hyaluronic acid isn't just an external component, rather, is present in our bodies and helps maintain the right look. It is also known as hyaluronic, HA, and hyaluronate.
Hyaluronic acid, considered to be a high molecular weight substance, is made from glucuronic acid and N-acetyl glucosamine, both of which are two simple sugars that have been modified by the body. HA works as a source of lubrication in the body. It is cannot be easily compressed. HA plays a key role in the hydration of the skin as well as in various treatments.
Hyaluronic acid functions as a cushion and lubricant for joints and various other tissues. It also affects the way the body responds to injury.
The levels of Hyaluronic acid which is naturally present in our body tend to fall as we age, almost by 50 percent. This loss is often accelerated by habits like smoking, magnesium and zinc deficiencies or by genetics itself which eventually results in painful joints and drooping skin. Therefore, it becomes imperative to supplement the naturally existing Hyaluronic acid concentration in order to promote healthy skin and flexible joints.
Meat Soup: The boiling bones of chicken, beef, and meat are a healing medicine. It is a highly hyaluronic acid rich food and carries with it nutrients such as calcium, collagen, chondroitin sulfate, magnesium, etcetera.
Meat: Animal meat possesses high levels of hyaluronic acid. Meat such as, beef, lamb, pork and poultry products along with the eyeballs of fishes and other animals are sources of hyaluronic acid, and consuming it even in small amounts is highly helpful.
Soy: Soybeans or soy products possess high levels of isoflavones which in turn contain phytoestrogens. Due to these, soybean/soy products act as a very rich source of hyaluronic acid. The phytoestrogens, which act like estrogens, help produce hyaluronic acid in the body. Consuming products like tofu, cheese, and soymilk, act as a good source in the treatment of many diseases which arise due to the lack of hyaluronic acid in the system.
Vitamin C (Source): Vitamin C is essential in the production of hyaluronic acid in the body, and acts as a substitute for animal meat and meat soup. Papaya, kiwi, orange, berries, green vegetables, are some of the sources rich in Vitamin C.
Red Wine: Red wine is a product of grape skin which is a great source of phytoestrogen, which in turn help in creating hyaluronic acid in an indirect manner. If taken in controlled amounts, red wine acts as a rich alternative of manufacturing hyaluronic acid in the body. In fact, a glass of red grape juice is also very helpful.
Magnesium: Products rich in magnesium, such as vegetables, potatoes, broccoli, and the like, contain high levels of magnesium in it.
