Hyaluronic Acid Supplements Portland OR

Fighting the good fight against wrinkles can raise some questions, like whether it’s better to take supplements or to fortify the skin with lotions and potions. Hyaluronic acid, a lubricating polymer found naturally in the body’s tissue, joints, and cartilage—but frustratingly absent in the creases of mature skin—now comes in both forms, holding a two-pronged promise to plump up aging skin.

The Beauty Bar: A New Strategy for Supple Skin

By Einav Keet

Fighting the good fight against wrinkles can raise some questions, like whether it’s better to take supplements or to fortify the skin with lotions and potions. Hyaluronic acid, a lubricating polymer found naturally in the body’s tissue, joints, and cartilage—but frustratingly absent in the creases of mature skin—now comes in both forms, holding a two-pronged promise to plump up aging skin.

What To Take: “The high molecular weight of hyaluronic acid (HA) has made it difficult to absorb when taken orally,” says Aaron Tabor, MD, who specializes in nutrition. He recommends supplements made with Injuv, a patented, smaller form of HA, that has a higher absorption rate. Take up to 400 mg a day for optimal effect. In a cream, HA acts as a humectant, creating a barrier that attracts water molecules to the skin, making your face and body appear smoother.

What To Try: Source Naturals’ Injuv Hyaluronic Acid ($44.20 for 60 capsules; www.sourcenaturals.com ); BioActive Nutrients’ Injuv ($49.95 for 120 capsules; www.bioactivenutrients.com ); or Home Health’s Hyaluronic Acid Rejuvenating Hand and Body Lotion ($12.99 for 8 oz; www.homehealthus.com ).
