The Anti-Aging Wonders of Hyaluronic Acid
by A.M. Wilmont
reason that residents Yuzuri Hara, known as "The Village of Long Life," live such long
and healthy lives is mainly due to the fact that the local diet that is unique to the
village features a starchy vegetable which is particularly rich in HA. In fact a large
pharmaceutical company in Japan began Research & Development on a pill
supplement containing HA. When they tested the pills on one thousand individuals,
around half of them reported smoother skin and even improved eyesight. Hyaluronic
acid has also proven effective in lubricating arthritic joints as well,
as certain studies have shown positive results from injections into the joints of
Hyaluronic Acid, a component of the bodies own lubricant fluid, that may delay the
need for a joint replacement.

Hyaluronic Acid, also simply called HA, is plentiful in our bodies when we are born, but
it's levels gradually recede over time. This reduction in HA levels may be a big part of
the aging process which we see.

Hyaluronic Acid occurs in the deeper layers of our skin known as the dermis and it
appears to help keep the skin smooth because of it's water retention qualities.
Hyaluronic Acid also apparently helps to repair skin wounds and certain other
problems.

In addition, it appears to help maintain collagen levels. Under normal circumstances,
collagen depletion is widely considered to be a prime factor in subpar skin tone as
well as elasticity of the skin, something that is often associated with the visual aging
process.

Hyaluronic Acid makes up about eighty percent of the human eye, a fact that is
surprising to some people. It is a sort of shock absorber to the retina which helps to
prevent trauma to the eye. It has only been recently that hyaluronic acid has been
considered effective in oral form although it has long been used in injections into the
joints.

ABC News has recently focused on
the possible anti-aging benefits of
hyaluronic acid, also known as
Hyaluron or HA. In a story entitled,
"The Village of Long Life: Could
Hyaluronic Acid Be an Anti-Aging
Remedy?", the focus was on a villiage
in Japan named Yuzuri Hara where
people usually live a long time and
often have perfect skin into their 80's
or even into their 90's. More than 10
percent of the population of his village
is 85 or older, which is about ten
times the average in America.
