Hyaluronic Acid provides the fluid matrix for joint lubrication, skin hydration, and skin repair. Jarrow FORMULAS Hyaluronic Acid is a low-molecular weight preparation derived from biological fermentation. It is clinically documented to be bioavailable and to improve hydration of the skin.
Hyaluronic acid is a component of articular cartilage and functions as a coat around each cell. When aggrecan monomers bind to hyaluronan in the presence of HAPLN1 (and proteoglycan link protein 1), large, highly negatively charged aggregates form. These aggregates of Hyaluronanic acid absorb water and enable cartilage to resist compression in much the same way a sponge expands after compression.Hyaluronanic acid is also essential to healthy skin, where it is a factor in tissue repair. When skin becomes inflamed from sunburn or other trauma, it acts to protect and repair the damaged tissue.
Hyaluronic Acid is a ubiquitous carbohydrate polymer and a major component of the extracellular matrix. It is also important to the synovial fluid and actually increases its viscosity and is one of the fluid’s primary lubrication components.
