What Happens to Hyaluronic Acid As You Age?


Do you have restless nights? Are you suffering from insomnia? If you are lacking in sleep, then the blame could fall upon excess cytokine production that is typically linked to diseases like cancer, Alzheimer’s disease and heart disease. The older you get, the less melatonin your body produces. This is an important fact because this hormone is needed for controlling the sleep cycle. If you want to slow down the aging process, you should consider hyaluronic acid, carnitine, omega 3 fatty acids, melatonin and acetyl-L-carnitine.

Hyaluronic Acid is a part of the skin’s structure and as we age, levels slowly reduce. The skin has more moisture, remaining supple and elastic when there is a lot of hyaluronic acid present. The skin repair process is modulated, damaged skin is minimized, collagen synthesis takes place efficiently and more water is absorbed thereby keeping tissues well-lubricated. Hyaluronic acid is a remarkable component of the body and can improve your appearance by adding more suppleness and hydration to the skin. It is the basis of injectable fillers such as Juvéderm.

To obtain hyaluronic acid through your diet, eat potatoes like taro root (aka satoimo), satsumaimo and the potato root known as imoji to enhance production in your body. You can also take a daily supplement. You will age and your skin will change because it is an inevitable process, but by taking the time to keep your skin healthy, you should consider the benefits of hyaluronic acid if you want even more improvement. Before you decide to take hyaluronic acid, you should definitely consult with a doctor.
