Properties of hyaluronic acid
Hyaluronic acid is a substance that is found naturally in our body, mainly in the skin and cartilage. The properties of hyaluronic acid make it essential for the proper functioning of these tissues.
In the joints, hyaluronic acid contributes to maintaining flexibility and recovering from injuries. On the skin, it is part of collagen and has regenerating, firming, moisturizing and restorative effects. This is why hyaluronic acid is present in many anti-aging and anti-wrinkle treatments. In addition, applied locally, hyaluronic acid contributes to the healing of scars and marks on the skin.
How to take hyaluronic acid
Although the body produces it naturally, hyaluronic acid breaks down quickly and with age its levels drop. This decrease can be compensated by eating foods that contain hyaluronic acid (or rather the nutrients necessary to produce it) such as potatoes, spinach, cauliflower or lettuce.
Another way to take hyaluronic acid is through food supplements like the ones you can find at Naturitas. Available in capsules, tablets, ampoules or vials, these food supplements with hyaluronic acid help maintain the levels of collagen in our body to ensure the proper functioning of the joints and maintain the smoothness and shine of the skin.
