For a while I’ve wanted to try a Hyaluronic Acid (HA) supplements, I’ve used skin care products that contain HA but I’ve heard quite a bit about the skin care benefits of oral supplements.
Almost 50% of the Hyaluronic Acid in our body is found in the skin, the rest is found in almost every cell in the body. What is does is quite miraculous – with the help of water HA lubricates movable parts of the body, such as joints, eyes and muscles improving joint condition. HA binds to water creating a gel-like substance that hydrates tissue and keeps the collagen nourished and healthy, resulting in firm skin. And since Hyaluronic acid moisturizes skin from the inside it smooths out wrinkles making it the perfect natural anti-aging ingredient.
From the NeoCell website:
“Hyaluronic Acid Blueberry Liquid™ with the added benefits of powerful antioxidants from pomegranate and green tea, is an all-natural dietary supplement that counteracts the effects of aging in a more effective way than topical HA application alone. By nourishing and moisturizing the skin and connective tissue from the inside, it is like creating a more youthful, healthy inner environment overall. With green tea in the mix, the health benefits include: anti-inflammatory effects, potential delay or prevention of cancer and neurodegenerative diseases as well as assistance in lowering LDL cholesterol, increased fat metabolism, and diabetes prevention. Made with organic agave nectar, this natural sweetener has a lower glycemic index. It also has blueberries and pomegranates which are loaded with vitamins, antioxidants, and other health supporting benefits.”
The problem is as we get older we tend to produce less and less HA in our bodies. So supplements are a great option to add more HA to our bodies to keep our bodies working well and keeping our skin plump and smooth. So I decided to give these supplements a try and for almost three weeks I’ve been taking NeoCell Hyaluronic Acid Blueberry Liquid™. This liquid supplement can taken by the spoonful or mixed in water or juice. I prefer to just take the tablespoon because it tasted really good, its a perfect blend of sweetness and tartness mixed together. Since I workout quite a bit I’ve noticed some joint stiffness, especially in the past year but lately I haven’t had a problem with hearing my joints “crack” which is great because honestly who wants to hear that and be reminded that they’re getting older! My skin also feels plumper but alas I still have a few fine lines. So I’ll keep taking the supplement in hopes that there will be some improvement in this area. Overall I really love how easy and pleasant it is to take Hyaluronic Acid as well as the multitude of long term health benefits that it offers.
