What Is It?
Hyaluronic acid is a protective substance found in the synovial fluid and connective tissue of joints. In the past, hyaluronic acid has been sourced from rooster combs or from corn and wheat peptones. AOR's new source is completely vegetarian and free of wheat and corn. Lysine and vitamin C are essential to the formation of collagen, which is abundant in connective tissue and bone.
What Does It Do?
Primary Uses: Hyaluronic acid is naturally found in synovial fluid that surrounds some joints. It forms a thick gel that lubricates and protects joints and is essential for joint mobility. Synovial fluid acts as a lubricant and shock absorber. It forms a thin layer at the surface of cartilage - reducing friction, facilitating movement and providing nourishment. Hyaluronic acid in combination with lysine and vitamin C, contributes to collagen, cartilage and connective tissue formation to provide well-rounded support for the joints.
Secondary Uses: Since hyaluronic acid is present in higher amounts in normal skin and promotes skin wound and scar healing, it is widely used in skin cosmetics to promote healthy, youthful skin. Hyaluronic acid, lysine and vitamin C each contribute to collagen production. Collagen gives structure to connective tissues such as skin, and collagen is also used in various cosmetic products and procedures.
Who Should Take It?
