Hyaluronic acid: what it is and what it is used for

It is a precious molecule, naturally present in our body, whose lack determines the aging of the skin

Hyaluronic acid is a molecule that is naturally present in our body and is produced by fibroblasts, cells that have the goal of hydrating the tissues, giving them turgidity and plasticity.
With the passage of time, the amount of hyaluronic acid in the body tends to decrease: hence the aging of the skin with the appearance of wrinkles and the loss of elasticity of the tissues, such as those of the joints.

Hyaluronic acid absorbs water, holds it and releases it according to the body’s needs and therefore maintains the right hydration and moisture in the tissues. Not only that: this molecule lubricates the joints and absorbs the impacts inside them.

The miraculous properties of hyaluronic acid do not end here: this substance has a protective function thanks to its reticular structure and acts as a filter against toxic substances. It also has an anti-inflammatory and healing action and repairs damaged tissues.
