Hyaluronic Acid sounds much scarier than it is and many of us wouldn't dream of putting acid on our faces. However, Hyaluronic Acid is actually a gel-like substance that has the unique ability to retain moisture. In fact, our bodies produce it naturally to help us retain moisture in our skin. It is also found in our eyes, joints, and connective tissue. We produce less and less Hyaluronic Acid as we age and our skin becomes drier and less elastic as a result, which causes us to develop deep-set wrinkles. This is why it works wonderfully as an anti-aging component in face creams and serums, as the Hyaluronic Acid can hold over 1,000 times its weight in water.

Relieve Joint Pain by Keeping Bones Well Lubricated
Hyaluronic acid is also found in the joints, where it keeps the space between your bones well lubricated. When the joints are lubricated, the bones are less likely to grind against each other and cause uncomfortable pain.
