Hyaluronic acid

Ingredient Type: Nutrient

Hyaluronic acid is a natural substance that is found in the body, particularly in the skin, joints, and connective tissues. It is often used as a dietary supplement, including in some protein powders, due to its potential health benefits.

In protein powders, hyaluronic acid may be added as a source of amino acids, which are essential nutrients that help to support overall health and well-being. It is also sometimes used as a natural anti-aging agent to help improve skin health and reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.

Hyaluronic acid has been extensively studied for its potential therapeutic benefits for various medical conditions, including osteoarthritis and dry eye syndrome. It is thought to work by promoting the production of cartilage in the joints and by improving the lubrication and hydration of the eyes.

Hyaluronic acid is generally considered safe when consumed in recommended amounts.
