Is Hyaluronic Acid Research Conclusive Enough?

Recent hyaluronic acid research shows that it may be helpful in rejuvenating the skin as well as treating osteoarthritis, and as such has become a very popular supplement.

However there are countless skincare products and treatments on the market today, and it's important to choose the right one to optimize your results.

What do Hyaluronic Acid Studies Show?

Classified as a glycosaminoglycan, or GAG, it is a naturally occurring chemical involved in many important bodily processes.

It is found in the highest concentrations in soft connective tissue, cartilage and in both the epidermal and dermal layers of the skin.

Some hyaluronic acid research for skincare points to its anti-aging ability. Body levels of HA decline as we get older, so supplementation to ensure adequate amounts in the skin may be beneficial.

According to other hyaluronic acid studies, it was shown to help proliferate healthy skin cells in a collagen matrix, moisturizing and lubricating the skin.

Research shows that HA is also beneficial in skin health and function, and can even help with scarring and wound healing.

Hyaluronic acid studies also point to its ability to help treat osteoarthritis, working to alleviate joint pain and restore cartilage, as well as provide an anti-inflammatory effect.

Is HA the best anti-aging supplement?

Although hyaluronic acid research looks promising, there is very little concrete data pointing to its effectiveness as an anti-aging supplement.

It appears to show a little more promise as an anti-inflammatory and osteoarthritis treatment, but again, there are few definitive clinical studies.

As a result of the limited hyaluronic acid research for skincare, you maybetter off with an alernative anti-aging supplement, i.e. one with more clinical research and proven effectiveness.

One such nutrient is called ceramide, which is a naturally occurring skin component, responsible for the skin's wrinkle-free, youthful appearance.
